“Great location! Really cute hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

We came over the 4thof July weekend, so everywhere was packed out. But luckily we got a room here. It's at the top of Frenchmen st, it's buzzing. And a 10min walk from bourbon st. I would definitely stay here again. The room was small, and the bathroom even smaller, BUT I felt it was all we needed.

We stayed at the Frenchmen Hotel for four nights. We found the hotel very clean with a friendly staff. Our room was small but had everything we needed. Nice breakfast with coffee available all the time. This was in a great location to hear the music on Frenchmen street and also just a short walk to the French Quarter. Thanks to the staff for a wonderful stay.

If you are interested in a hotel with charm, this is the one. We stayed two nights and three days in NOLA. We had a suite with a balcony that overlooked Frenchmen Street. The hotel's location is great. Everything is within walking distance. The hotel is very quaint and has a lot of personality. The staff is awesome and extremely helpful. We didn't even have to leave the hotel. We could sit on the balcony and hear the music from the nearby bars, restaurants and music halls. Great location, great staff and great hotel. Will definitely recommend and stay there again! Can't wait for my next trip to NOLA!

This is an older hotel which I loved and made my stay in NOLA memorable. We had a suite with a balcony which was wonderful for just sitting and soaking up the sun and street life. It's close to the French Quarter but far enough away to enjoy your night.

This was our first stay in New Orleans and we were very pleased with it. The room was nice,and very, very clean. The pool was a little warmer, but perfect after a long day of seeing the city.The staff and management were great, even recommended some nice little places to eat. Close enough to walk to all the night life, with several bars just outside the doors. Will certainly stay again, this will be our go to hotel.

A friend was staying here and it was just wonderful! Right off of the French Quarter in the Bywater District, within walking distance of pretty much everything, including the Zydeco Festival at Louis Armstrong Park. The pool area was small but lovely. The manager couldn't be nicer - he also gave us some great restaurant recommendations. Definitely a place I will recommend to all my friends.

Marty, thank you so much for having written. It is always so nice to hear that a guest (or guest's guest) had such a good time. We are in the Marigny, right across the street from the French Quarter so the location is great. Thank you for pointing that out. It is also nice to hear that we are considered worthy of your recommendation. We appreciate that. Again, thank you.

Stayed in one of the suites with friends, and we absolutely loved it. Really great place - the only downside was that the sofa bed was really not very comfortable. The main bed on the other hand was simply delightful!

Pool is bizarrely warm, but still pleasant for a late night dip. Enjoyed the Roof Top Terrace too.

Staff were friendly and the the breakfast pretty decent. Loved the location.

Room Tip: The Suite does get street noise in the bedroom, but it is away from the rest of the hotel rooms so q...
