We had a wonderful experience at the French Market Inn. We stayed two nights while in New Orleans. The room was very quaint and comfortable. We also liked having the balcony to sit out on in the evening. The staff was friendly, especially the gentleman who brought our bags to the room. He also gave us tips on the best...

This place was chosen by us b/c of its location and proximity to the French Quarter and price. You get what you pay for is a good theme. It is actually very very close and that was wonderful. If you're looking for ONLY location, this is your place. Otherwise, the pictures are nothing like most rooms and especially ours. Our...

My family stayed here for 3 nights. I had made an error in booking my stay and Nancy at the registration desk went above and beyond to help sort things out and get us a great room. The courtyard was amazing. All the staff were pleasant.

Great courtyard hotel recently remodeled. Have been staying here for 20 years. Rooms are a bit eccentric, but hey, it's New Orleans. Very safe area and hotel has good security. Only issue is valet parking. It's cheaper to park in the public lot across Decatur. The staff are genuine and helpful. Will keep staying here forever.

Right in the heart of the French Quarter, this hotel was a great stay. We visited in the hot heat of July and the price was seriously Low. So low, that we purchased 2 rooms, as we had 4 people in our family traveling together. The interior courtyard was an oasis of pleasantry away from the hustle and bustle of...

We were looking forward to staying at this hotel for our family vacation and the wait was worth it. The rooms were just right as you really aren't spending too much time in them anyway.

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.
