Places to stay near Frenchmen St for Jazzfest?

Coming down for my 8 th Jazzfest (over 17 years) w/ wife and friends this May. We normally stay over in Warehouse District hotel that is close to FQ but I really like the Frenchmen St. area for after-Fest activities. What would be suggestions for a nice place to stay in that neck of the woods? Open to hotels and B&Bs.... I still would like to be walkable to FQ but also very near Frenchmen ....Thanks! jck

We will be staying at the Frenchman Hotel for the 3rd time in a few weeks.It is a quirky place,no two rooms alike.They have a few balcony rooms that are suites.The single rooms can be quite small.The staff is first rate.The location at 417 Frenchman is at the foot of Frenchman Street,next door to Mojito's and across the street from BMC and Vaso-just one street over from the French Quarter.Very convenient to all the clubs on Frenchman.If loud music keeps you up at night,this may not be for you,but we really enjoy it there.

Most of the Marigny (Frenchmen St.) lodging is B&B, guest house or inn. You can get some idea of availablity through the website for the respective trade organization, Professional Innkeepers Association of New Orleans, see:


You can also pull up the B&B and Inns listings for Marigny and the French Quarter on the TripAdvisor New Orleans Hotel listings page. French Quarter hotels close to Frenchmen St. would include Le Richelieu, Hotel Villa Convento and Hotel Provincial. Hotel de la Monnaie is a condo type hotel close to Frenchmen St.

You will that a lot of the Jazz Fest lodging close to Esplanade Ave. (would include Frenchmen St.) is already booked.

We stayed at the Royal Street Courtyard in the Marigny a few years ago. It is a nice bed and breakfast - nothing fancy but nice enough. It was a quick walk to Frenchmen Street, and we loved sitting out on the balcony with a glass of wine and watching people walk by. We would definitely stay there again.

The Hotel de la monnaie is the best bet! Have stayed there three years in a row. Nothing fancy, but so darn close to frenchmen. I highly recommend .
