I have made 6 trips to NOLA this year and 5 of them I stayed at The Frenchmen. (I felt like I cheated on them when I stayed at a different hotel with a friend last trip!) I have been for special occasions and weekend getaways, and my sweetie turned me on to this awesome place! The rooms (I've stayed in) with a Q bed are decorated incredibly, with vivid wall colors and interesting wall decor. There is free parking on site (and additional space nearby) that is all locked up at night, a minimalistic breakfast (donuts, fruit, coffee, juice, tea), a pool and hot tub, and a community ice machine, as well as a soda machine.
The only real issue (MINOR!) I've had at this hotel was a slowly processing payment on departure day when I was in a hurry to leave (Murphy's Law!), but I left my card number and they ran it when the system was back up. The only downside to the single Q rooms is there is no mini-frige! So make sure you eat all your delicious food while you're still at the restaurants, because there is no where in the room to keep leftovers cold.
I've stayed for football games (not a terrible walk to the Superdome), the Wine & Food Experience (again, not a terrible walk to anything), the Jazz & Heritage Festival (main location is a bit far, but music clubs in the city within walking distance all have special bands in town for the event), and for trips just to get away from home. I love this city!!!
I've recommended to all my friends to stay at this hotel, and will continue to stay there as long as I go to the city!
