The French Quarters Guest Apartments
Ranked #21 of 469 Hotels in New York City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 17, 2010

I had the opportunity to go to the French Quarters on 46th Street between 8th and 9th Avenues on Saturday and I was extremely impressed with the room as well as the service. Whoever owns this establishment is quite fortunate to have Colin as the general manager. I have never met such a refined gentleman who was extremely helpful with a great personality. Donald Trump should have such an impressive GM. Owen was also delightful.This hotel reminded me of a smaller version of the Eliot Hotel in Boston which has been rated as one of the Best small hotels in the U.S. and also one of my favorite places to stay when I visit my sons in college at Boston University.

The location of the French Quarters is great, on Restaurant row and they also have a wonderful, large restaurant called Bourbon Street which has great food and drinks. If you are looking for a small hotel in the theater district I am sure you will be extremely satisfied with the French Quarter.

The reason we choose the French Quarters was primarily for its location and the wonderful reviews we read about it on TripAdvisor. We were wrong. Do people get good service depending on the mood of the staff there? Or do we have to speak french to get good service? After half a day of traveling (which began at 5am that day) and being greeted by freezing winds at NYC, we were relieved to finally reach our destination. Getting information from the reception about how to get to the subways and other important spots in the city was not very helpful and you'd be lucky if you had your compass and your own navigation tools. The room was surprisingly freezing and we informed the reception about our plight. We were told that the thermostat is now turned up and the room should heat in 15 mins. Almost 45mins later, there was no change. We decided to head out to explore nearby Times Square instead of wasting our time. We informed the staff on our way out and were assured that the heat would be up soon. After arriving back to the same freezing room hours later, I physically had to go down and explain the situation. We were made to play the waiting game again. Still no luck with the temperature. After making another call and requesting some maintenance, the person finally came up and investigated the heater vent, saying that he couldn't understand why the heater wasn't working, and would move us to another room if need be. Hoping to thaw out in the shower was another disappointment. The water was not hot, not warm...but lukewarm. Just when we were about to reach the point of insanity, the heater started working. No one called to ask if the heat had turned up. Bad start to an otherwise fabulous vacation. The good points about the hotel was its cleanliness and location. They seemed to compensate for the bad service. Fortunately, the city had lots of attractions to keep aside the disappointments experienced at the hotel. Apparently, there are 95% strong who voted this place as the most recommended to stay while in NYC. All i can say is, follow your instincts!

Booked a night at French Quarters with high expectations based on TA reviews but, unfortunately, I was disappointed. First the positives: great location near theaters, times square, restaurants; nice decor, clean, very comfortable bed with good linens. Now the negatives: greeted by a receptionist that couldn't quite muster a smile. There isn't anything you could call a lobby and the reception area was rather drab. The room wasn't ready at 3 p.m. (was taken to the associated bar, I think it was called Bourbon Street, for a complimentary drink. I had a coffee and she a hot chocolate and they were absolutely dreadful. I haven't had a cup of coffee that bad since Starbucks first opened). After all the waiting they hadn't bothered to heat the room up to a comfortable level, and I was soon to learn that the room couldn't be heated up to a comfortable level. The thermostat couldn't be set over 72 and at that setting the room was uncomfortable. The shower - no tub - also didn't quite get hot, so no relief there.The wifi didn't work. The room was quite small and just barely adequate for two people. I was expecting something much nicer. I frankly flummoxed by the highly positive reviews from others.

We visit New York City a couple of times a year, but had never stayed in the Times Square area. We made our decision to stay at the French Quarters hotel based on reviews from this site and other sites. We were not disappointed. Collin (actually, everyone) was extremely helpful and paid a lot of attention to details. We enjoyed the continental breakfast, the daily paper and daily list of happenings. The location was ideal, given the fact that many theaters are within two blocks of the hotel and others, including Radio City Music Hall, are just a short walk away. Being located on Restaurant Row is a definite plus. Our room faced 46th street and even though it was cold, we enjoyed stepping out onto the balcony to watch the snow and passerbys. As others have reported, the rooms are quite nicely appointed with a kitchenette, tv/with dvd player, and clock radio (for ipod). You will have a very restful sleep in the bed. From our room, you could hear street activities, but that is part of being in the city and did not bother us. We would stay here again.

Just visited NYC for the New Years Holiday (Dec. 28th thru Jan. 1st). We stayed in a 2 bed, 2 bath suite on the forth floor (#401). We had a 20+ foot balcony overlooking restaurant row, and within sightview of Times Square. The staff was excellant and the location was great. Times Square was 1 1/2 blocks away and subway system 2 blocks. Lots of great restaurants within minute or two walk. The bar located downstair (Bourban Street) was just like prior visits to New Orleans. Great food and drinks, just an elevator away (room key needed to access hotel from bar). Anyway, we plan on visiting again this summer and French Quarters will be our first option.

The French Quarters Guest Apartments is perfectly located just a couple blocks from Times Square on Restaurant Row. Our suite was beautifully decorated and furnished, the beds and linens were luxurious, and the balcony was lovely. We were warmly welcomed and felt at home from the moment we walked in the door. The service was outstanding and the complimentary breakfast on the mezzanine overlooking the bar and main floor of the restaurant was a delightful and unexpected treat. We discovered and enjoyed tremendously our new favorite restaurant just across the street - Becco. The French Quarters Guest Apartments is our new New York home!

My kids and I spent 4 nights at the French Quarters Dec. 21st to the 25th. I chose this hotel based on reviews from tripadvisor. We were not let down! We were on the third floor facing the street and had a beautiful room. Everything was quiet and we had very peaceful nights. The hotel was brand new from head to toe and immaculately clean. The bathroom and shower was very spacious. The beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed the daily breakfast served downstairs and the daily newspaper and notice of each days interesting facts and interesting things to do. Who can argue with free Internet? It was a huge convenience. The location was perfect for taking off in different directions each day. I also felt very safe. We also enjoyed the fact of so many restaurants within walking distance. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The manager, Colin, was top notch! Unfortunately I did not try the restaurant or room service to report on that. Really, I can not wait to return!!!:)
