This hotel is very New Orleans- it's laid back, a little rough around the edges, friendly and full of good times. It's almost like staying at your old eccentric aunt's house.
I believe that Frenchmen Street is one of the most amazing streets in the world and it will not stay this way forever. Many of the music venues are cover free and full of amazing performances- we saw a band battle on the corner of a street where two bands fought for the rights to the corner with music.
Now for the hotel- we stayed in I believe it was room 210- back in the corner- it was a little dark, the floor was sticky- king sized bed- old furniture. There were rolling beds et all stored in the hall corner. My friend had sent a bottle of champagne for our anniversary. It was in the room on ice. We took it to the pool which serves as the heart of the establishment.
The pool is tiny and in the summer- everyone hangs out there- all night. It's NO and there are just less restrictions. Fun for those that like to hang out late but maybe not so fun for those that want a quieter experience.
Now- this didn't really bother us but I could see someone else getting upset- one day before we were going out- brushing our teeth in the bathroom sink- a rubber pipe below it detached and started squirting water all over the room. We told the front desk and they had the handyman come. The problem was bigger than anyone realized and they moved us to a suite. The suite was significantly cleaner and nicer than the regular room- but it was funky as well. Bed is in an upstairs loft- no tv- downstairs to bedroom - seperate ac upstairs to keep it cool. Downstairs has couch, tv, closet, bathroom, nice patio with view of pool.
The "breakfast" is pretty standard cheap hotel continental- with instant grits available of course. My husband helped a worker move some heavy furniture and they gave us a bottle of cheap bubbly. I thought that was very nice.
You walk out the door and find Frenchmen in all its glory. There may be people making out on car roofs, trumpets being played while walking, drunken ridiculousness, people dressed to the 9s and homeless squatter kids as well as neighboorhood people selling bbq and vegetarian burritos. I imagine Frenchmen is what Bourbon St. was like 100 years ago before it lost all of its goodness and turned into trash. It is amazing- particularly during the week- Sat. not as much.
I love New Orleans as it is special and not like any other place in the country- this is good in some ways and inconvenient in others. This character makes me love it even more but I can see how others would not like it or understand it. The Frenchmen is very much a character-filled NO establishment.

Room Tip: Suites and in the back for quieter experience.

The room was facing the street with two double glass doors! We never slept the entire trip,
One employee sit on the step to the doors and was fighting with her boyfriend. Drunks
walk by all night long, talking very loudly. The dead roach was really discusting, and
never cleaned up by the staff. And, the breakfast glazed doughnuts! WOW! Loved New
Orleans, just stay somewhere else!

The Frenchmen Hotel is located on Frenchmen Street which is surrounded by night life. Kenesha a manager at the hotel and is so sweet and helpful. Eat at Adolph's is a must. Great food, not costly but small. So get there early. Lots of bars to hear music and dance all night. The area is loads of fun.

The Frenchmen is a great place to stay. We stayed in a loft room with 2 adults and 2 kids, and it was a bit snug, but worth it for the price, location, and friendly staff. At the bottom of Frenchmen street, you can walk to see lots of music, and you hear the music at night, but it is pleasant. Great little pool to cool off in the afternoon. Pretty hotel, wonderfully friendly staff. This is our second time staying here and we'll definitely stay here again when we visit NOLA. You can walk to the French Quarter but not be in it. Right by the market. You can bike to lots of places, and easy drive to City Park, etc.

The location was fine. But the fold out sofa and the cots were THE MOST UNCOMFORTABLE I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED. I am not a high maintenance traveler; but these mattresses were so uncomfortable, even our 6 and 7 year old kids couldn't sleep on them. Literally, you could take the mattress and squeeze with your hands and it compressed down to about 1/16th of an inch. We asked that something be done, and they brought up another cot and a bottle of champagne. The new cot was exactly the same. I'd say that the rooms are fine if you only get a single room. But don't expect to sleep on the cots or fold out sofas. Hate to speak poorly of the hotel because they did make some effort to satisfy us. But keeping those beds is a tremendous disservice to guests.
