Giving it 4 out of 5 but should be 3 1/2. On the plus side is the location the staffing and the decor. On the minus side are the size of the rooms which are very small (smaller than they look on the web site) and internet feed which is incredibly slow. So slow that with a few exceptions, streaming...

This was my first trip to New Orleans and was not really sure what to expect. However, I cannot say enough good things about this hotel and its staff. the front desk people were always very nice and helpful. The real superstars of this hotel though are the concierge. The ones we saw most often were Lionel (hardest working man...

Rooms were clean and comfortable but semi claustrophobic. Service was excellent. However, I really chose the hotel for the location. In the French Quarter, located blocks away from just about all the attractions. Price was fair, parking is where they get you.

If you like the charm of a small hotel and want to be in a convenient French Quarter location, then you'll like the French Market Inn. The rooms are all different and some have quirky dimensions. They have been renovated, but look a little worn and could use a touch up here and there. The bathrooms need a soap dish...

You stay here for the very convenient location on Decatur St (at St Louise) on the edge of the French Quarter. The pros - most of the 120+ room face the central courtyard rather than the main road which means minimal outside noise even though you're so close to the nightlife areas of the quarter. Tons in walking distance from...

Very friendly staff, quick check in, and a quite nice room. The location is great for visiting the French Quarter area. Great food, music and trolley are all within a five minute walk. We loved sitting in the courtyard at night. I would definitely stay here again.

This is a GREAT hotel! You cannot beat the location--walking distance to everything in the French Quarter, and only a short distance from the Marigny, the WWII Museum, the streetcar to head up to the Garden District, etc. The hotel is older with a lot of charm. We had an 'interior room', which is to say it doesn't have any...

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
