There were some mild signs of aging in the room (stained carpet), but the room was very clean and comfortable! The location of the FMI was great--everything in the Quarter is within walking distance, as was access to the streetcar. We really enjoyed our stay, and the staff was INCREDIBLY accommodating and friendly.

I am so glad my friend and I decided to stay at the French Market Inn. It was both of our first times there so we weren't totally sure where to stay, but we found that the location of the French Market Inn was perfect. Far enough away from the craziness of Bourbon St so that our night was peaceful...

The front desk staff was friendly and the location was good (although the view from my room of a big parking lot was a disappointment). The double room was small, only one chair, and poorly lit. Walls between rooms are thin. In the bathroom, the floor was cracked, the control on the tub/shower was creaky and the power went off....

Though our check-in was a bit complicated, due to the first room not being ready, front desk service is excellent. Nancy even offered us a bottle of champagne even though we had not complained about the mixup. We don't drink champagne, so we refused it but it's the thoughts that counts! :) We also ask to change room since it...

Stumbled upon the Valentino Hotel Group while doing some basic research on New Orleans hotels. The price seemed right for all of them, but it was the location of the French Market Inn that encouraged me to book a stay here. I was looking for a location that allowed walkability to all the sites I wanted to see that was...

First, the good. The location of this hotel can't be beat if you want to concentrate most of your vacation in the French Quarter. The street car line, Mississippi River, Bourbon Street, etc are steps from your doorstep. The price of a room in this location can't be beat. The beds in our room were very comfortable.

You walk out & BOOM you are a part of the french quarter. If you want the rest of the quarter just turn left toward Jackson Square and you are on your way. If you want shopping and malls, just walk across the street and to the right. Most of the guests are fun and lively...There was a bachelor party...

The rooms are small but cute with lots of charm and exposed brick. The staff was super friendly and helpful and you can't beat the location, especially when traveling with kids and not necessarily wanting to stay on Bourbon St.

Found this place last minute- it was what I think of as a real New Orleans hotel. Quaint, a little creepy and relaxing. The staff was exceptional- from the front desk to the valets. Erwin was great- brought our luggage up and gave us tips for dining. The rooms are small but nice. We were up top and was so...

I wanted to love this place after I checked in, since the room was beautiful and the staff was nice but noise was a serious issue due to the horn on the paddle boat which docks directly in front of the hotel. We had a room with a patio which was great for people watching but likely made the noise...

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
