Way too much for way too little. Worst hotel stay ever. Deafening music from nearby bars until 4AM. Continental breakfast was laughable. Quaint and poor maintenance do not equate. Stay away at all costs!

socaltom, Thank you for writing. We appreciate all who comment and look to your words as we improve our guest services and amenities. We are in the heart of the music district, so it can get loud. I regret that we were unable to offer you one of our quiet rooms away from the street.

Nice hotel, true New Orleans style. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Great location within walking distance of everything. When we arrived, our room had been upgraded. We had a huge private balcony overlooking Frenchmen St.

The Frenchman Hotel has been lovingly restored and the courtyard is truly gorgeous. As is typical with these historic properties, the rooms are pretty tiny. However, we didn't go there to spend all day in the room. I love the neighborhood here and I much prefer to stay on this side of Esplanade than on the French Quarter side. If...

1. The door to the hotel was locked. When I tried to get in, the girl behind the desk kept insisting I had the wrong hotel, and they had no more check ins that night. I was finally able to get her to let me in and prove I had a reservation. They had no elevator so I was dragging...

A friend of ours, who's very familiar with the gems of New Orleans, recommended this place and we were not let down.

Charming old hotel located on the edge of the French Quarter at Decatur. Very helpful and friendly staff and very good value. Most rooms surround a brick courtyard. This being New Orleans management fels it neessary to notifie guests that swimsuits are required in the pool and hot tub in thr courtyard.

Management response:

Andrew, Thank you so much for writing and yes we do feel the need inform guests as some simply don't understand why running around naked isn't appropriate in a 'non-clothing optional' hotel. Odd that no? Sounds as though you enjoyed the Marigny, come back to see us soon.

Reviewed 31 December 2016

Steps away from all of the live music you can stand, and a tasty assortment of New Orleans fare. A short walk takes you to the hustle & bustle of The Quarter, the artists of Jackson Square and the unforgettable experience of Cafe du Monde. The Garden District and other local hotspots are a short ride away.

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.
