Great place. A couple minor hiccups. The toilet would not stop running and there was a drip from upstairs. Other then that we had a balcony room that faces the front. Rooms were clean. The design of the hotel is beautiful. It's like a maze. The pool is small but nice. Service was good. You get what you pay for.... More

I love this place!!! I've stayed in the fanciest, and they're none that compare to the uniqueness of this hidden jewel of a hotel. This buildings history dates back to 1722, and when you sit in the seclude, private courtyard you actually feel like you are brought back a little in history. Some of the rooms still have the original... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel in May 2016 during a visit to New Orleans. Check in was quick and easy and the room was very clean. It was a neat layout and had a very historical feel, which I liked. The location was great as it's a block or two from Bourbon St. It's also next to... More

Once again, the French Market Inn shows why it is the BEST hotel in the area. We had scheduled a road trip to New Orleans in mid-August and we had stayed at the French Market Inn before so that was a no brainer. We had our reservation and all was going well until Mother Nature decided to deluge the area... More

Me & my mum stayed in a deluxe 2 double bed room with courtyard/city view for 3 nights & thought it was excellent! The location is perfect for the French quarter; it feels like everything is on your doorstep as it is all walkable. The hotel itself is very nice, check in felt slightly drawn out compared to other hotels... More

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.
