Great hotel
Really nice hotel on the edge of the Quarter. The location was great! Not too close to the insanity of Bourbon St, and just a short walk from Jackson Square, the French Market, and Cafe Du Monde. The room was quiet and clean, the bed was comfortable, and the showers were nice and hot.

Very Pleasant Stay
I have only very good things to say about French Market Inn- mainly by the professional, friendly, helpful, and reliable staff. They were waiting for me and had everything ready when I arrived. The facilities are very nice, well kept, and clean. The outdoor patio is comfortable although I did not take advantage of it due to high temperatures and humidity. The hotel is very well located in the midst of the French Quarter neighborhood - a walk distance to places I was interested in visiting. On my arrival I was greeted by the concierge -a very nice gentleman named Andrew-who immediately went into helping me with my luggage going beyond his call of duty by bringing me ice, explaining me things about NOLA and how to move around the city (this was my first visit to NOLA), he gave me info Less Pass for transportation, and info on some sites he thought it could be interested for me to see & explained me how to get there.
