I stayed here for a convention and was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Everyone there was super nice and the rooms were super clean and comfortable. Nice courtyard area too. The location of this Inn is awesome! Short walking distance to the French Market and Bourbon Street plus there's a trolly stop across the street. I'll be staying here again...

This hotel is larger than it seems from the street frontage because they have many rooms also in the back buildings, and so the small lobby can get quite busy, we had to queue about 15min for check-in. But once you're done and you have found your room, it's alright. Our room was not too spacious but clean and good....

Hi Hakan, thank you for choosing the French Market Inn and taking the time to share your feedback. We apologize for the inconvenience you experienced during check in, peak times can be a challenge especially during special event weekends.

I literally just left the F M I and am pleased to say I found it hospitable, comfortable, and geographically convenient. The staff, were all super helpful and nice, I never felt like a burden of any kind. In fact, Nancy was kind enough to upgrade our room to a suite! Also, this probably goes without saying, but you really...

I stayed in September - the hotel and my room were cute but the place was generally shabby and poorly maintained. Hotel walls were scuffed and dented, my room needed a major power clean and smelled damp and stale. The door of the room opposite didn't close properly so every time someone went in or out they had to slam...

Back for another stay. Just a very short walk to cafe du Maude, French quarter, Jax brewing. Very friendly staff and very good rates. Recommend courtyard rooms due to possible weekend noise in Decatur

The hotel is a beautiful gem in the French Quarter. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with standard amenities. Southern hospitality at its finest - even when I forgot a precious childhood memento, Nancy at the front desk quickly found the item and assured me it would be taken care of and I'd have it back soon. Then, when I...

Amazing Stay, Great Property close to everything! Only 3 short blocks to the French Quarter. Self parking is a little difficult and the valet is on the high side. Bed was very comfortable and the staff was welcoming and friendly.

This hotel has a great location and an incredible staff. Located far enough away from the riffraff yet close enough to everything. Just a few blocks away from Jackson's Square and New Orleans best restaurants! My personal favorite was having P&J's coffee shop located next door. We paid for valet parking but realized a public lot was across the street....

Love trip advisor and its ability to help find these types places to stay. My wife and I prefer small independents, it seems to be much more pleasant than the chains.

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.
