“Quaint and cozy boutique”
Reviewed August 29, 2014

Decided to stay at the French Market Inn, after reading all the positive reviews. All was everyone commented. This Inn is so nice, comfortable, clean, quaint. Was so perfect. The staff was also very pleasant. Very convenient to all we wanted to do. Will definitely make this my stay, whenever we go back to NO.

We stayed here in December before renovations were complete and loved it. This time we booked a balcony room for 5 nights. Gorgeous room and loved sitting on the balcony. Did not notice any street noise while we slept. The curtains keep the room nice and dark.
Nancy works at the desk and helped us decide to stay 2 more nights. We just couldn't leave this great city and she helped us by getting the best rate. Perry the doorman felt like a friend by the end of our stay. Will definitely be our hotel of choice when coming to Nola which is 3-4 times a year.

We stayed here after our Cruise for one night. We parked across the street and paid $27 for 24 hours. We arrived at 9am, prior to exploring the city we popped into the hotel to confirm our reservation. Jenna, the woman at the front desk was very friendly and took down our cell # in case a room was ready early. Not more than 10 min later she called us and told us our room was ready! We grabbed our bags and were able to check in by like 9:30am! We were very pleased. The room was large, clean and updated. Location was fantastic. We walked everywhere, literally the perimeter of the French Quarter. We would stay here again.

Finding the room was entertaining as the hotel has a few internal stairways. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and have plenty of room. The bathrooms are updated and come with anything you could need. If you're looking for a wonderful place to stay that's close to everything without paying a ton of money, this is where you should go!

This hotel is very clean, the service is great and it is decorated very nicely. The pool/courtyard area is also nice & inviting. Even though I didn't get a chance to go in it, the pool is small & most of the time was occupied. The rooms are a bit small but ok, because most of the time I spent outside. The building is a little odd & the room I had, took me through a little maze. One thing I didn't like, some of the employees are loud in the morning. Maybe it's me being grumpy in the AM but I don't like being woken up by loud conversations in the hallway. I love the location. It's right in the center of everything, no need for cabs. Right across the street from the Mississippi river.

We rented this hotel and booked a room with a balcony and we loved everything about it. Perfect location, beautiful rooms and friendly staff. We will stay there every time we go to New Orleans now! We took our two young sons (3 and 9 months) and it was walking distance to the Aquarium so it was very convenient for us. Also highly recommend the Gumbo Pot right across the street it was fantastic.

I'm fairly new to Tripadvisor and have never been big on reviews and ratings. This time I used this app and really dug in and read everything. Finding this hotel was like magic. Having down a lot of time staying and walking the French Quarter I know what I've always wanted in a hotel but never received. The French Market Inn delivered the experience I've been seeking for years. Old world style, simple but modern rooms with not a single thing out of place. As perfection goes this place nailed it. I was sad I only stayed the night but am looking forward to staying several nights next visit along with trying out a suite package. Thank you for making your mark on me.
