I came during Jazz Fest. My brother's birthday was one of the days. Your front desk agent (Nancy) went out of her way to help us celebrate. We got a nice balcony room over looking street. Great time. She really made us feel special!! Give her a raise. See you next year

It was a lovely hotel located on decatur. Quiet, big rooms. Nice size bathrooms. Loved the size of the shower. Courtyard was very quaint and pretty. Very small pool. Very clean hotel. Great service. Glad I brought my pillow from home though, my friends complained about the pillow and the bed was a bit hard. Overall, it was a great... More

I went for my birthday for my first trip to NOLA and traveled with a friend. The location was perfect! Far enough from bourbon street and close enough to walk 5 min to have amazing coffee & beignets at cafe du monde! The cafe is across the street from Jackson square, we could not have been happier with the location.... More

I was traveling on a budget and looking for something above a motel, but also affordable. I was pleasantly surprised by how comfortable and peaceful this hotel was, being one of the less expensive hotels in the area. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept in and the room was absolutely spacious (do yourself a favor... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the French Market Inn. We got a balcony room on the 2nd floor overlooking Decatur St - we were apprehensive about the possibility of noise, but it turned out not to be a problem at all for us. And we loved the huge balcony! The room itself was very large, with two queen beds,... More

From now on, any time I come to visit New Orleans, I will be staying here! The location is great, it's right near Jackson square, but far enough from the hustle of bourbon street.

Loved this place! Simple, small rooms but comfortable for sleeping and relaxing in between jaunts to the French Q. Awesome courtyards with neat fountains, a small pool for cooling off, and don't forget to find the house cat, Patrick!! We are headed back again this summer for the 4th!

We just returned home from NO and our stay at the French Market Inn. Tripadvisor rates this property at #16 in NO. I'm not sure why. It's an old property, at least in the building we were in. Stained rugs in the dark, narrow hallway leading to a small room with more stained carpet. The king bed was comfy, but... More

For almost 300 per night (because of Jazz Fest) found this to be most disappointing. Other than location being good for Jackson Square, rest was far below average. Old and quaint is one thing, clean and attention to detail another. Pillows were small and lumpy. When I asked for another type was told all pillows in hotel were the same.... More

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.
