Excellent location. A bit pricey but well worth it. The rooms are kind of small, but we didn’t spend a lot of time in the room!

The pictures of the room we booked did not match the small space our room turned out to be. Admittedly we chose a price to meet our budget but the only concern is that the picture we viewed did not explain the cramped space found. The king bed took up 80% of the room. 24 Inches on one side of bead and then 24 inches to the back of the chair at the desk at the end of the bed, then 48" to the wall and door on the other side of the king bed. Needless to say we experienced a claustrophobic moment as we entered the room.The bath was equally small and compact.No room to lay out our bags. Location perfect and staff excellent, but wish at check in that we would have been given a review of the room and ask if we desired a upgrade!

Beautiful hotel with a perfect location- in the French quarter a short distance from all of the sites we wanted to see. Staff were very nice. Rooms were nice and cold- great place to escape the heat!

Excellent location in the French Quarter close to the river, shopping, and Cafe du Monde. Very friendly, helpful staff who made me feel welcome and at home. Charming brick walls & central courtyard create an antebellum French-colonial atmosphere. Room was small but clean with expected amenities (coffee maker, hairdryer, safe). Bed very comfortable, but an extra blanket would be a nice addition. A/C worked very well and kept room chilly even when adjusted.

Great location and staff, but not very clean.

Pros: Location
Cons: Cleanliness
Location: Plenty to do nearby. Adjoining coffee shop was great.
The staff and location were great. The cleanliness not so great. Previous occupants hair and thick layer of dust on edge of tub. Also, previous occupants coffee still in pot. No stopper in tub. I asked for one twice but was told two days later that they didn't have any. Very limited channels on TV, local channels only. No premium channels or pay per view available. If maid service asks you if you need any more towels or anything else for your room, and you say no, we have plenty, that means to them that they don't have to clean your room that day. They asked for a credit card for incidentals, but there was absolutely nothing to buy! No phone, no mini bar.... nothing. Child size wading pool without light and vending machines in Courtyard only take bills or cards. I ended up with a lot of quarters..

Gorgeous Place!

Stayed in a petite king room, which was big enough for two people without feeling cramped. Bed was very comfortable. Our room did not have a window, yet did not feel too small - actually made it easier to sleep during the day when we had been up very late and jet-lagged. Exposed brick all along one whole wall of the room. Bathroom is lovely with a large shower, good water pressure, and nice hot water. We did have an issue one day when our toilet would not flush, but it was fixed immediately, thanks to the staff! Being that the building is old, with old plumbing, it comes with the territory. The hotel’s courtyard is beautiful! A nice quiet oasis away from the business of the quarter! Relaxing by the mini pool in the sun was wonderful! Location is perfect - inside the Quarter and a short walk to anything. Street car station is essentially juat across the road. A few blocks from the market. And the hotel staff were all extremely nice and helpful! Really enjoyed our stay and decided we will stay here on our next trip to New Orleans!!! Wish we had known about it the first time we came!

Good location but facilities not updated

This hotel is very well located but the room's carpet and shower curtain were super dirty. The room was very small and bed/pillows very unconfortable. I even could live with that until our last night when a huge cocroach almost climbed the bed. That was the straw that broke the glass. If you're not as picky as I am maybe it is a good choice to stay in the French quarter for a reasonable price.

Funky French Market Inn

Pros: The hotel is quaint and charming but the courtyard was the best.
Cons: Parking, though not sure how.
Location: French Market Inn is across the street from the Mississippi river which means it's "riverside" of the French Quarter. ( Don't ask locals directions )
The French Market Inn is a charming albeit funky place to stay. Small hallways, several turns connecting to quaint rooms which are not large but enough to be comfortable. The exposed brick walls and ceiling beams invoke a time gone by. The first room we were given had an "electrical problem" (or was it ? check out the picture I've posted) after I turned on the lamp. We were promptly given another room without any challenges. The staff was very helpful and pleasant in helping us move. Something we noticed in New Orleans is that almost nothing is level, including the floors in either room we were in. It was more humorous than annoying, just be sure to put your hand on the wall when you get out of bed. The courtyard was wonderful ! A great place to have coffee and beignets in the morning or a nightcap. Very peaceful and relaxing, we hung out there daily. The hotel is not real obvious when passing by on the street so watch closely if driving. Oh, by the way, drivers are crazy ! I believe this hotel would be more enjoyable for adults, not that anything is wrong for kids, just not a lot to do. The pool is small.

Fantastic

Pros: Atmosphere, location, staff
Cons: Our toilet ran quite a bit off & on. Seemed like as soon as we decided to call staff, it would stop, then it would start back up for a bit, then stop
Location: everything is within walking distance. Safe area. GREAT location.
We absolutely loved the hotel. Nearly all of the staff were simply amazing. There were 2 different bellhops who were totally in different about us as we came and went, but Lon (?) was simply fantastic, friendly, welcoming, and helpful. The front desk staff was great, especially Nancy who was so sweet! We LOVED the atmosphere and the convenience of the location. We opted for a petite room, which was exactly that, petite. Considering how much we were on the go, it completely fit our needs.
