AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE!!!!

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 29, 2004

This place is a real D..U..M..P.., A virtual landfill of dirt, stink, and grime. Some of the brochures we read described this place as a luxury hotel. It is not. It is a dump.
Evidently there are five parts to the hotel, and one room in five is said to be real nice. So if you make the mistake of making reservations for this dump, at least you have a one in five chance of getting a nice room. Good Luck. Regardless of the room you get, there is a 100% chance the amount you will be charged at checkout will be different from the rate you were quoted when making the reservations. Very strong unethical conduct on the part of the management of this place.
If you like to gamble, you have a 20% chance of a nice room, but you will pay the same for the dump. Don't expect to get moved to a nice room, they are always full up, or at least thats what you will be told.
Take it from someone who stayed there three days, DON'T DO IT. This is the first time I have ever booked thru Hotels.com and had to pay additional room charges when I checked out. Not the fault of Hotels.com, just unethical conduct on the part of the management of the hotel.

Unique Quality: i Observed nothing outstanding about this dump.

Directions: french quarter

Oasis in French Quarter

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

Perfect location, tucked away at the Mississippi River in the heart of the French Quarter. the Historic French Market Inn is a beautiful 19th century inn built in the 1800's.
Walking distance to Bouborn Street and Riverside. The best thing is that they have a quiet and beautiful garden / backyard, and in the middle of the backyard is a 24-hour open heated spa/pool. This place is very clean and neat. Highly recommended.

This is probably one of my favorite hotels in New Orleans, not because it is so luxurious but because it has so much character. The buildings and courtyard are just beautiful. Some people don't like this hotel because the buildings are older and a bit worn, but for me it has the perfect New Orleans charm.

Unique Quality: The courtyard is stunning. They also have a very small pool as well as a coffee shop and cocktail lounge. Guests get 1 free cocktail per day.

Directions: Across from the Hard Rock Cafe.

The Historic French Market Inn has a wonderful, fancy lobby. To get from the lobby to my room I had to cross the patio. A real oasis with flowers, trees and a small pool. Breakfast is served outside in that patio. Beautiful!

Directions: Decatur Street - just across the street of Jackson Brewery in the French Quarter. Two blocks to Royal Street and three blocks to Bourbon Street. The Mississippi is just 400 feet away.
