Reviewed yesterday NEW

I would use them again in a pinch. To say it was allstar weekend and the first weekend ramping up to mardi gras you really couldn't beat the price. Yes there were a few cosmetic details that could be worked on, like there was no interior security door chain or lock. The floors had a few debris and dust spots...

Perfect place to stay. had a big group in multiple rooms. No complaints. Breakfast was perfect. Great coffee and decor. The pool was just right.They were working on the heater for the hot tub. Just a short walk across the street for drinks. Would stay here again for sure. Thank you Frenchmen staff!

Very nice place. Close walking distance to French Quarter, Tram and night clubs. WiFi was good but take your own computer. The one in the lobby is so old it would not connect to the Internet. Breakfast was a bit sparse, Danish, fruit and yogurt. Some boxes of cereal would have been nice.

I was mad I didn't know to bring a suit for pool and hot tub. The bed was not right. I felt I was sleeping upside down and in a hole so my back and hips were not happy at all. The pillows were giant so I didn't have a thinner one that would have been better for my neck....

Good place to stay to get in the swing of Mardi Gras. Parade even went in front of hotel. Safe walking down Royal to French Market area. Great coffee all day in lobby. Really enjoyed a late night soak in the hot tub.

We love the experiences we've had at the Frenchmen Hotel. It's close to all of the great music and food on Frenchmen Street. Wonderful pool, hot tub and rooftop. The staff is always friendly and helpful. It feels like New Orleans.

The Frenchmen Hotel is on the edge of the French Quarter, on the liveliest street for music clubs and street jazz. The music goes on until 2 in the morning, but the location makes it "background music", not blaring for sleeping. Not the place if you need total silence to sleep. (I imagine earplugs would solve that, we had no...

We checked in to 5 rooms last weekend. The desk clerk was efficient and glad to see us. The rooms are quaint and small. The bathrooms are spotless as was the entire room.

In the heart of the New Orleans music scene, the Frenchmen Hotel offers a special ambiance that gives you a true feeling of belonging. Within a block or two of many music clubs including the Spotted Cat and Snug Harbor, the hotel is just a tipsy walk away. This boutique hotel has a truly remarkable staff that will quickly become...

Staying in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

Neighbourhood Profile
Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward, the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely residential. Of course, folks around here love to go out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the festivities, well then so much the better! Home to some of the most revered live music venues in New Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining destinations, and a come-as-you-are vibe that’s as infectious as it is alluring, this is real deal New Orleans oozing with southern hospitality and the promise of a most epic night out. For endless opportunities to boogie, to admire row upon row of lovingly restored homes, and to escape the fray of the more touristic parts of town (but still live it up in grand style) head to Faubourg Marigny & Bywater.
