“Outstanding Hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

The staff of The Frenchmen Hotel are to commended for their hospitality. The Front Desk team of Jeremiah, Alex and Adrianna were excellent and outgoing. They all went above and beyond the call of duty, their smiles are warm and genuine. It is obvious that they love what they do in serving guests. They take after their manager Kenesha who also demonstrated excellent hospitality and overall service skills. I highly recommend this hotel. Frenchmen street in New Orleans is a great place to visit, the music and art scene make it a happening place.

Be care to not confuse this hotel with the other Frenchmen Orleans at 519 that is up the street.

Room Tip: be careful to not confuse this hotel with one up the street with a similar name.

Merlot P,

That is one of the nicest reviews I've read. Thank you for singling out the individual agents. You have no idea how special they feel when that occurs. We do appreciate the time you took to stop and write and hope to see you back very soon.

This past weekend was the first time we had stayed at the Frenchmen Hotel and I'm proud to say that we found our new place! Not only was the bed comfortable and room clean, the staff was more than accommodating, especially Alex! I had put in a special request and not only was I greeted with her contagious smile, she put special attention towards my room to make this a weekend I'll never forget. Thank you, Alex! I can't wait to come back and do it all over again!

The Frenchmen Hotel staff has twice gone above and beyond the call of duty in serving my family. While the hotel is very old, we found our rooms (one double queen and one queen loft) to be extremely comfortable. The beds are really cozy, and everything was spic and span clean.
The location of the hotel is not only ideal for visiting all of the exceptional music venues along the two blocks of Frenchmen St. either direction, but also a short walk over to the Jackson Square area. The hotel parking lot, which is very small, was full, so we parked in a paid lot near the French Market off of Elysian Fields Ave. (24 hours for $20). It was a short 2 block walk to the hotel. If you want to get to NOLA before the 3 p.m. check-in time, the staff will hold your bags at the desk for you.

How nice of you! We couldn't more pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We do think we have the best location in New Orleans. It is also so good of you to point out the cleanliness of the rooms. I'll pass that along to the housekeeping staff. They'll be thrilled. We can't wait to see you again so please hurry back.

The Frenchmen Hotel is our favorite hotel in New Orleans. The rooms are not plush but clean and quaint. Frenchmen Street has great live music and restaurants. No need to go into the French Quarter but it is within walking distance if you prefer that type of venue. Kenesha is an exceptional staff member. She is very friendly, willing to help in anyway and is an asset to The Frenchmen Hotel . Along with her co-worker Alex they are both exceptional employees.

We came over the 4thof July weekend, so everywhere was packed out. But luckily we got a room here. It's at the top of Frenchmen st, it's buzzing. And a 10min walk from bourbon st. I would definitely stay here again. The room was small, and the bathroom even smaller, BUT I felt it was all we needed.

We stayed at the Frenchmen Hotel for four nights. We found the hotel very clean with a friendly staff. Our room was small but had everything we needed. Nice breakfast with coffee available all the time. This was in a great location to hear the music on Frenchmen street and also just a short walk to the French Quarter. Thanks to the staff for a wonderful stay.

If you are interested in a hotel with charm, this is the one. We stayed two nights and three days in NOLA. We had a suite with a balcony that overlooked Frenchmen Street. The hotel's location is great. Everything is within walking distance. The hotel is very quaint and has a lot of personality. The staff is awesome and extremely helpful. We didn't even have to leave the hotel. We could sit on the balcony and hear the music from the nearby bars, restaurants and music halls. Great location, great staff and great hotel. Will definitely recommend and stay there again! Can't wait for my next trip to NOLA!
