We stayed in an interior room. I was a little afraid it would seem claustrophobic without a window, but it wasn't. The ceilings are appx 15 feet high and painted a light color, so all was well. Room was clean, staff was great. We could have parked our car across the street, but as we planned on staying in the French Quarter all the time and walking everywhere, we used the valet service ($40/night). It was well worth the price for the peace of mind of not having to drive! Room prices get pricey c... Read more

The hotel is everything you see in the pictures and more. Exposed brick, beautiful courtyard, comfy beds and insane water pressure!! The loss of one star comes from only minor things. No fridges, no microwaves which means no leftovers from all the great NOLA food and no breakfast of any sorts. Stayed in a king deluxe which had more character than most places I've stayed in. Room 200 which had windows facing the street and steamboat docks, gave us a nice view in the mornings. Great rates comparat... Read more

Hotel is in a great location. You can easily walk to anything in the French Quarter. Hotel staff was great at giving directions or recommending places to eat.

I really liked this hotel a lot for our stay from May 27th to May 31st. Stayed in Room 134 in a king size bed and brick wall. The location is excellent and is right around the corner from Johnny's and Napolean House two of my favorite places to go in the Quarter.

This was a last minute trip and I found a great room at a reasonable rate. The valet service for the car is expensive and slow, so unless you need your car to get here, I recommend not having one. parking is annoying. This inn is located near everything. Ask for a room with windows. The courtyard is pleasant and there is a small pool for wading, not necessarily laps.

A wonderful old world hotel in the heart of the French Quarter! Our balcony room looked right out into the Mississippi River. We were one block from the Jax Brewery shopping and Jackson Square; and two blocks from Café du Monde! Fabulous! (negative...having a two night minimum when I only needed one night!)

We stayed at the French Market Inn over the 2016 Memorial Day weekend. Couldn't have picked a better hotel! We arrived in NOLA at 9am. Although check-in isn't until mid-afternoon, the bellhop graciously stored our luggage in a safe room while we walked Decatur and grabbed breakfast. Around noon we received a call from the Front Desk, saying that we could check into our room at any time. Our room was street-side and had 2 queen beds. REALLY spacious! Good sized bathroom. HUGE shower. Comfortable... Read more

This hotel is ideally situated in the French Quarter ?? not so far in it's hard to access, but not so far away that you have to walk forever to get places. It's quite close to Jackson Square and Café du Monde. Although the rooms are kind of small, it's clean and comfortable ?? and really, how much time are you *really* going to stay in your hotel room anyway? The staff is friendly and helpful. You can hear noise from the street and other guests in the hall. The wi-fi is free and reliable.

This is a nice, comfortable old hotel in a great location. The rooms and bathroom are large, the courtyard area is lovely, and staff were all friendly. We stayed 4 nights. I'm sad to say the cat, Patrick, no longer lives at the hotel. As a huge cat lover this was one of the main reasons I booked French Market Inn over other hotels, so I was very disappointed. Be aware that this area of the Quarter can still be a little sketchy even though it's not right on Bourbon st.

French Market Inn earned every one of its three stars, and every one of its excellent reviews! With the location, price, and cleanliness of the hotel, it's easily one of the best values I've found while traveling. When we choose three-star hotels, the two factors that define such hotels are the bathrooms and service. French Market Inn exceeded expectations on both fronts. We actually prefer smaller, cozy rooms for couples trips, but it can mean sacrificing a bit in the way of bathroom space, mo... Read more

French Market Inn is in a perfect location on Decatur Street. Just 2 blocks from Jackson Square; 3 blocks from Café DuMonde, 4 blocks from Pat O'Briens, across the street from the Natchez Riverboat. No need for a car if staying here; all of the Quarter is within easy walking distance and if you want to go to the Garden District there is a street car stop across the street behind the Jax Brewery. I have stayed here on 6 different trips and enjoyed every stay. This is not a modern hotel or a full... Read more

Courtyard area was absolutely beautiful. We loved the exposed brick in the room and hallways. Lobby was very nice. Everyone was always so friendly and helpful.

Loved this quaint little hotel. The staff is very friendly, the rooms are clean and comfortable. Walking distance to almost anywhere in the Quarter. The rooms are a bit on the small side, but if you're doing New Orleans right, you don't need a big hotel room. There's no room service or place to eat in the hotel, but that's how they can keep their prices fairly low. However, there are coffee pots in the rooms. There is also PJ's Coffee shop adjacent to the hotel where you can get other varieties ... Read more

This hotel taught me something very important. Always make sure the hotel room you are getting, has a window. Lugging your luggage all around through the stairs on the multiple floors ensures this is NOT a good hotel for those who need accommodation. It's right in the middle of things, but again--no window. There is a central pool that is pretty busy, and a 24 hour ice and vending machine area. But again NO WINDOW. They don't advertise this, and won't tell you when you check in. It's a nasty lit...

What a find. With your AAA card you get a discount. Not knowing the layout of the French Quarter (FQ) exactly, I was pleasantly surprised to find my hotel was slap dab in the heart of the FQ. Everything FQ was within an easy walking distance. Which was good because it just did not make sense to rent a car.

I loved this hotel. It is so satisfying to visit a city like New Orleans and stay in a hotel that tells a story. Small, clean, great location. If you squint your eyes a bit, it feels like you've moved in. Lovely little pool, resident cat. No elevator, you go up stairs in the open courtyard. Be sure to ask the history of the wing that your room is in. Id love to stay again.

My friends and I love New Orleans and this hotel made it even more enjoyable. The staff was extremely friendly, the pool was relaxing and it was affordable. The only thing we would change is next time we will be getting a bigger room. We had a deluxe with twin beds and we are hoping the balcony rooms provide a little more space. We will be using FMI as our go to hotel in NOLA from now on and I would recommend it to everyone.

My husband and I stayed in this hotel in an interior room without a window. I will say that this hotel has so much charm. I like being able to sleep in the dark so an interior room was just the right room for us. The brick walls and courtyard had so much character. The area where the hotel is located was perfect for us....a couple blocks from Bourbon Street makes it quiet at night. The front desk people were very helpful and friendly. I will definitely be back.

This hotel is located exactly where you want to be if you want to be near the action without being stuck in the middle of the dirty (gross) side of the action of New Orleans. It is right near JAX Brewery on Rue Decatur. The history, decor and amazing staff just add to the experience. I did not see any kind of continental breakfast offerings but WHO CARES - You're quick walk from the Cafe Du Monde!!!! Take the valet parking option - its worth it and those guys are so awesome and nice!!!

Perfect location, great amenities, and the staff was very professional and always at your service.

Being a frequent traveler, I have stayed in hundreds of hotels in dozens of countries. I have never had a room this noisy. Every time someone took the elevator, we heard a loud boom followed by the lights flickering. This was extremely annoying late into the night as we're trying to get some sleep. My wife and I were startled by the elevator noise several times during our three night stay. For over $150 a night, we expected so much more.

Great courtyard hotel recently remodeled. Have been staying here for 20 years. Rooms are a bit eccentric, but hey, it's New Orleans. Very safe area and hotel has good security. Only issue is valet parking. It's cheaper to park in the public lot across Decatur. The staff are genuine and helpful. Will keep staying here forever.
