One of things I’ve learned about spending time in New Orleans is one had better “check their attitude” before you arrive. If you’re in a hurry, place expectations that are pristine or hold prejudice of any type…don’t go. The Frenchmen is authentic old New Orleans and possesses none of the aforementioned. Located one block downriver of the French Quarter in the Faubourg Marigny it serves as a resting spot for an array of interesting people. This hotel does not pretend to be anything other that what it is. If you’re looking for shiny chrome pretties, new carpet smell, polished glass, and a doorman, The Frenchmen isn’t for you. We had a king suite, room 300. The room is huge, about 800 square feet. Complete with full sized refrigerator, (no ice maker) double sink and microwave in the kitchen. The dining area can accommodate six people. Separated from the living and dining area is the bedroom with highboy king bed, dresser, armoire with television and bedside nightstand. There is a small, uncovered shared balcony with table and chairs overlooking Frenchmen Street off the bedroom. In the evenings music from several of the near by clubs can be heard from the balcony. The living area is complete with large sofa that can become a full-sized bed, armoire with television, comfortable wing chairs and coffee table. The décor is Victorian throughout. Room 300 faces west and has two glass pane doors to the balcony. The Frenchmen is an ideal hotel for location and budgets. There is secured, covered but limited parking on site with a fee of $15.00 per day. Public parking is nearby at a cost of $20.00 per day, non-event. You’ll find a lovely courtyard with small, clean pool and hot tub as well as a large sun deck on the rooftop. Hot coffee and simple continental breakfast is available in the small, quaint lobby. All in all this is our kind of hotel…simple, comfortable, convenient, and affordable and we’ll stay there again.
