“Best hotel in the quarter.”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

My husband and I visited the French Market Inn last August for a long weekend. Next time we come to New Orleans, we are staying at the French Market Inn again.
The rooms are clean and beautiful! Super friendly and helpful staff. The location is great and convenient to all.
The renovation is beautiful and modern while still keeping with New Orleans charm.
We had a room with a balcony over looking the river. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to vacation in New Orleans. Whether it's for a long weekend or an extended stay.

This hotel is located on Decatur Street in the French Quarters. It is away from the hustle and bustle of Bourbon St. We had a really nice room on second floor in courtyard, which we really like. The staff was very helpful. They had a very nice pool, although we didn't really use it. We liked the location.

I really enjoyed that place!

Room nice and clean, excellent service, well located.

Nice backyard, where you can relax.

The only thing... The windows don't open, I don't really like that, even if the AC work really well, I prefer fresh air... But this is not a big deal...

You should go there!

we stayed here in the middle of may.staff and service was excelent.room was good size and clean.great central location.(a couple of blocks below bourbon st. by the river front).nice quite courtyard in the middle of hotel with fountains,tables and pool.the only reason this is not a 4 star because they dont have a restaurant or bar.(just walk out the front door and there are plenty to choose from),and very reasonably priced.it was all good.

Room Tip: room # 135 is very nice.

My husband and I decided to go down for the night since we live within a few hours. We didn't want to have to walk a huge distance to get where we wanted to go only to have to walk more. Im always leery about the actual condition of hotels.
This hotel is right on Decatur street, literally a couple of block from Bourbon Street. Across the street from the River and Jax Brewery. PERFECT location.
The room was windowless, which was fine with us. The room was very nice and clean. The bathroom was beautiful although the "getting ready" area could be bigger for us women who have hair and makeup stuff to do!! :)
Right outside our room theres a courtyard with a fountain and many tables and chairs to rest in. The pool is out there as well. Its VERY small but it serves the purpose!

Room Tip: Prepare to pay for parking. It was $28 for us for one night.

Found this boutique hotel after much searching. Was at first put off by its mediocre rating here, but then read reviews which described that the hotel had undergone renovation and was a new place. They were totally correct!! I frankly don't know how anyone could say anything negative about the French Market Inn.

The location is amazing--our window looked out at the Miss. river and the Natchez riverboat. Cafe Du Monde was just a few steps away as were conveniences like CVS and Walgreens. Ten minutes and you were anywhere in French Quarter. Our room (two queens for family of three) was huge!! Big TV, nice beds, lots of room. We were on the street side but it was quiet. Wifi worked well and all three of us were on our 'machines" all the time.

The only downside might be there is no breakfast (but again it is only steps to some great places) and that the rooms don't have fridge/microwave, which we did not need. The pool is really a big bath tub, but you can cool off there. And the orange cat rules the whole place! Help was very friendly and courteous. Service good. Again--the parking fee is steep, but similar to any other central hotel.

Highly recommend this place. I don't think we could have been any happier. Great place and great value.

My husband and I took a last-minute day trip to New Orleans as a part of anniversary weekend celebrations in Biloxi. This hotel is simply beautiful. We loved the authentic New Orleans appointments and decor. The staff was beyond helpful. They sought make our experience wonderful. Just one example, when I asked for some extra towels, the gentlemen who brought them to us asked me if I needed anything more. I told him I was headed to get some ice and sodas. He volunteered to get it for us. Another example, we were apparently standing on the wrong side of the street for a cab. The staff noticed, came got us and hailed a cab for us. My only downfall was our room didn't have a window. After a while, I became to feel closed in.
