You really can't beat the location of French Market Inn. If you choose to stay there, reserve your room through their own website, valentinohotels.com, not a third party site. Sometimes the rates for Valentino hotels run $30 or more per night higher than reserving through their own website.
Have to say I did not have good experience at fmi. Shower was filthy and two roaches I killed crawling from under bed. The location great and price was awesome. The roaches not so much
We enjoyed the FMI last March. If you are a light sleeper ask for interior courtyard rooms. The balconies on the street look out over a very busy street & farther down train tracks & then the mighty Mississippi. I felt like planes, trains & automobiles from all the noise. Enjoy!
FMI.......location and charm
