Blackout rooms made it more difficult to get out of bed. Loved the location, beautiful courtyard, and fun place to explore around the many terraces around the property.

Cons:Nothing

Pros:Location of this unique hotel was second to none. Hotel was well presented. Decor in keeping with its location. The room was very clean and well kept. The staff were so friendly and helpfull. No breakfast available but understandable due to location and design. But its no problem as many many local eateries. With its amazing value for price its my only choice for future.
Cons:Nothing really.

Pros:Very courteous service
Cons:No window or refrigerator

8.2 Very Good
Pros:I really enjoyed my stay. I appreciated the historic feel of the room with brick walls. I was skeptical at first about renting a room with no windows, but it exceeded my expectations and wasn't as sketchy as imagined. There were plenty of lamps to substitute the natural lighting. The staff was very friendly. They greeted everyone who passed through the lobby with a smile and were helpful with suggesting local places to eat. Great location for the french quarter experience.
Cons:I felt as if the carpet in my room had not been cleaned or vacuumed before my stay. There was obvious staining and debris visible. I am glad I brought slippers. It seems as if the cleaning of the rooms could be more detailed as there were trash under/behind the dresser and side table.

8.2 Very Good
Pros:For the price, the inn provides access to the French Quarter, into which I went for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and nightlife. The staff is helpful, knowledgeable about the area, and eager to help. The room and inn have that French Quarter feel (e.g., courtyard, exposed brick, tall windows). The room was comfortable except for one point. The shower was glass, not a curtain, and was nice for such an inexpensive room. My friends who stayed at the same conference were jealous that I was staying in classier accommodations than they for the same or less!
Cons:My room on the first floor had no weather strip on the bottom of the door and suffered a draft. Once plugged with a spare blanket, however, the room was cozy. Also, the electrical cords for the television were rather lazily slung over the TV itself. It looked shabby.

9.7 Wonderful
Pros:I wanted an authentic New Orleans French market experience and that's exactly what I got at the French market inn. Everything was perfect. It was historical, right across the street from the Riverwalk, two blocks down from Bourbon Street, Clean, safe, right across the street from Cafe Du Monde. We decided that we would stay here every time we came to New Orleans.
Cons:It was nothing that I didn't like. I'm used to stay and four star hotels so I had to adjust to the boutique feel of the room, but I bet it was comfortable and the atmosphere was authentic and great.
A
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Close proximity to must see locations, restaurants and activities; staff was friendly & accomodating
B
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:The hotel is right at the base of the French Quarter. If you plan to stay in the Quarter, this is a great option.
Cons:Noise and parking. During a busy time, self park will be almost impossible. We valeted in order to avoid searching for a space.
