The staff, especially at the front desk, saved the day for this review. They were exceptional! As far as the room and building - yes, of course they are old, but some things can be kept up - like dusting….& replacing broken toilet seats, for example. A lot of noise came through from the estimated 1&1/2 inch opening on bottom of door. Speaking of doors, they basically had to be closed with a bit of force to catch the lock, so the noise from that alone kept us up through the early morning hours as people would return to their rooms. Then, there is a train that you’ll probably hear every morning at 4:30am. If you have a window room like us, you’ll get the added bonus of car horns & loud vehicles and the insane ‘music’ from the steamboat, across the street. So, maybe ask for an inside room, bring headphones or something to help mute the noise level, so that you can get a bit of sleep after a long day.

The location is great. However, there is a $100 processing fee to use your debit card when paying for parking which is very high and not advertised before-hand.

PRO: Very convenient to the French Quarter, lobby is well appointed, staff friendly CON: The petite room is very tiny, no USB ports available, no dresser, a single drawer in just one of the bedside tables. In the bathroom, the towel hooks on the back of the door had been removed, and the bottom of the door itself was rotting away. OVERALL: Too pricy for the experience.

Great hidden gem right in the middle of everything fun. Staff was nice. Rooms were clean and comfy. Parking is pricy but it’s not regulated by the hotel. Will definitely return.

We had an excellent stay at the French Market Inn. The staff was friendly and helpful and the location was perfect. The room was spacious and the courtyard was very nice. We could not get wifi in our room, and cell service was spotty.
