The French Quarters has so much going for it. The location is excellent and the staff are - as described by other reviewers - really helpful. In a place like New York, you certainly cannot take good hotel customer service for granted. However, the manager and his staff at French Quarters could not be more welcoming. When I expressed concern about the size of my room the manager and receptionist moved us, for a relatively small additional charge, to a super room. Other positives include free wifi and a reasonably priced room service menu. The standard of room fittings, especially in the bathrooms, is excellent and the beds are very comfortable.
There is though a danger that the French Quarters' success could end up being its downfall. The prices charged are high, particularly for the size of room offered. I could have stayed in a far higher standard of hotel for what I paid for my stay in the French Quarters.
Finally, the breakfasts are - at best - average. The basics were just not addressed. For example, some of the cups and cutlery were, on two days running, dirty. The fruit, still in the supermarket wrappings, was well past its best. All very puzzling when there are some excellent bakers nearby. For example Amy's Bread just around the corner on Ninth Avenue is fantastic. The French Quarters needs to decide whether it is a boutique or budget hotel. It charges prices of the former but its breakfasts would be served at the latter.
In summary an extremely good hotel that I can thoroughly recommend. However, do your research first and do not overpay.
