Perfect location for the French Quarter Festival. Very friendly and responsive staff, and surprisingly upscale decor for a small, budget friendly hotel. Rooms are small, but clean, fairly well appointed, with comfortable beds. We stayed in a courtyard room next to the elevator and were never overly bothered by noise. (The courtyard was charming, with a very small pool.) The room coffee set-up leaves a lot to be desired, but the hotel has an adjacent coffee shop with decent local roast and passable pastries. Be aware that the room rate doubles on weekends, especially festival weekends starting Thursdays.

Hotel's Favourite
Stayed here with grandchildren 4 days in August. Had one of two rooms on the 2nd floor that had a sizeable balcony with table and chairs looking out on Decatur St. Able to watch the traffic (parades, bicycles, steamboats, trains) as well as the pedestrians. Our room had plenty of space with a wardrobe, 2 queen size beds which were comfortable and a television. Steps led up to the balcony. Period heavy drapes adorned the wall to wall windows. Our room was ready even though our flight was early. Wayne at the front desk was helpful and wonderful to deal with and talk to. An exceptional bell captain was Eric in providing information. I will mention there is no public laundry here but there is a pickup and drop off service. We were able to adjust the temperature in the room. Second part of our group arrived 3 days later and had a room overlooking the courtyard. Their room was actually two rooms, one a sitting room and the other 2 queen beds. Very nice. Check out was before our cruise check in and we were able to leave out luggage while we had lunch and went to a movie. This would be my first choice of hotels again

Great location, wonderful New Orleans ambience, helpful staff. Walking distance to everything in the French Quarter. Our room had a huge balcony facing street. Was worried about noise but it was quiet after about 10-11 except for the train whistle being n early morning.

Our party was 4 related cousins over 50. We LOVED the French Market Inn! Unbeatable location with New Orleans charm! Great value to be in the heart of the French Quarter. The relaxing courtyard and helpful, pleasant staff enhanced our stay. Recently renovated rooms and terrific shower. We would definitely stay again if we return to NOLA.

The French Market Inn was a perfect place to stay for two first time visitors to New Orleans! The location is central and very convenient. The courtyard is charming and a great place to hang out. While the room and balcony are a little worn, the beds were very comfortable. And the service was excellent- front desk clerks were so friendly and accommodating. They made bookings for us and provided extra blankets and a refrigerator when requested. Definitely check into the French Market Inn!

After getting off a Norwegian cruise ship that had the WORST mattress I ever slept on, it was an absolute delight to spend time at the French Market Inn and sleep on a wonderful, comfortable mattress! Lovely Inn, wonderful staff (Aleisha - I think was her name) was especially caring -- noticed my husband might have trouble with the stairs and immediately changed us to a first floor room. Conveniently located too! Will definitely stay there again!!
