We had a great 3 days there. It's very close to Bourbon St., Jefferson Square, The French Market, and great little shops. Harrah's is within walking distance, and is all of the above. It is a very quiet inn with great employees.

Let us begin by stating that we got a great deal on our stay at this little gem! The location of this hotel is perfect. Jackson square is a short walk away as is Cafe Dumont and a ton of shops, including Walgreens and CVS (very important for those of us traveling with a toddler). The check in was quick... More

This is a boutique hotel and it is fabulous! The rooms are pretty good sized, and well appointed. The rates are tremendous, and QUIET! The staff is just excellent and friendly too! We had several questions and discussions with them and we were very happy with their recommendations. We've met many very friendly travelers as well. The pool is smaller,... More

We stayed a total of three nights at the French market inn. Our first two nights were at the front end of our trip and we had a balcony room overlooking the street. After a tour of the southern states, we returned and stayed for one more night in a queen room overlooking the street but without a balcony. The... More

French Market Inn is an amazing hotel in the heart of the French Quarter. The rooms were gorgeous, with the brick walls and antique decorations. The room was also very clean, which is always a relief! The private courtyard was like an oasis in the middle of the bustling neighborhood. The soaking pool was perfect for the hot days. Lonnie...

This hotel is beautiful and relaxing. It is an escape from the partying. The location is great. Walking distance to everything we wanted to see. The staff was amazingly nice and extremely helpful. We preferred a room with no windows. The room was quaint and nice.

We arrived at 10a.m. and checked our luggage, it was quick and check-in to the room was smooth. They call you when the room is ready on your cell. Our room was ready by 12:15, but we were out shopping at Jackson square and did not hear the call. At 3 we went back and got our keys. The rooms... More

Do not have enough great things to say about the inn. We had never been to New Orleans before and were very nervous about finding the right place. Once again, trip advisor led is in the right direction. Everything was perfect from the staff to the courtyards, to the room, to the location. We were a little concerned that we... More

The location of this hotel was superb. Away from the noise and hustle and bustle, it creates a peaceful atmosphere with a design that is heavily influenced by its original plans. This means you zigzag through the hotel, the inner courtyard with its swimming pool past foliage to your room. Great ambiance!

My boyfriend surprised me by selecting this historic Inn for our first night in NOLA. It was spectacular! He hand picked our room to have a balcony that overlooked the city. We picked up a bottle of wine, sat on the balcony to enjoy our first night together. I couldn't have chosen a more perfect place to start our vacation!

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
