I actually went on September of 2015, but just now am I coming across this hotel on TripAdvisor. I loved it, the price is reasonable it's a great location short walking distance to main attractions like the cathedral,the Mississippi River, Jackson Square. And only a block and a half away from the best bigness ever! (Cafe du Monde). The hotels...

The location was right on Decatur, steps from the Mississippi and Jackson Square. The hotel was so convenient and everyone there was friendly and helpful, I would definitely stay here again! We had an internal room so no windows but it was fine because in New Orleans, who wants to stay in your room!? The bed was huge and comfortable...

Very nice hotel! Clean, nice, excellent location, close to everything walking distance, perfect for the price. I read reviews and pictures they were what you have to expect. Great for the price 5 star for price, location and quality. One thing the cheapest room doesn't have windows, but it didn't bother us at all, since we only needed for the...

Just got back from a busy 3 day journey to New Orleans. This place was in the perfect location, we were basically a 5-10 minute walk from everything. The hotel is historic and the rooms are small (but who stays in the room anyway?) We had a king size bed, flat screen TV and a bathroom with a tub/shower. If...

We stayed here just one night when we unexpectedly flew to NOLA a day early. Our other hotel was booked so we went with the French Market Inn and absolutely fell in love with it. The entire staff were friendly, helpful, and informative. The room we had was an interior room with no windows but did have a skylight. It...

We were here with a large group, multiple rooms. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Rooms were very clean, and each was unique, as the hotel is actually 9 smaller buildings refurbished from some other prior uses. The rooms vary widely in terms of size. some have windows, others do not. a couple have balconies overlooking Decatur Street. The courtyard...

Most unique hotel I've stayed in. My wife and I have stayed here several times and will continue to do so when we visit New Orleans. Excellent location. Excellent staff. Beautiful rooms. You won't be disappointed.

Our favorite hotel in the French Quarter! We could only manage to come for one night and were pleasantly surprised when we arrived on Saturday at 11:30 AM that they could valet our car and our room was ready!!! Had an interior room which was roomy and dark! Great for a nap and sleeping in! Always clean! ALWAYS the best...

I stayed at the hotel for eight nights. I would definitely recommend it if you're doing a shorter NOLA city and want to hang around French Quarter. If you are staying longer you will likely fall in love with other parts of the lovely city. Wold recommend staying in garden city, Marigny or Bywater.

There were some mild signs of aging in the room (stained carpet), but the room was very clean and comfortable! The location of the FMI was great--everything in the Quarter is within walking distance, as was access to the streetcar. We really enjoyed our stay, and the staff was INCREDIBLY accommodating and friendly.

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.
