Great little hotel right off Frenchman St, the street with the most music clubs. A few blocks to the Quarter, the French Market, and Jackson Square; it's all very close. A very colorful part of town with lots going on. Nice Hotel with good prices. A feeling of old New Orleans!

If you’re into the city’s jazz nightlife, you can’t find a better situated hotel than the Frenchmen — which is literally on Frenchmen Street, famous for its multitude of jazz clubs, street nightlife, and some cool restaurants and bars. It’s also a block away from the French Quarter. Although you’re generally cautioned not to walk around late at night in New Orleans, there are usually so many people milling about, you’ll be fine walking back from the Quarter at night. There’s a lovely pool in the courtyard, and the rooms are clean and modern, if a bit dark. There’s also a cozy little lobby with a dining table for late-night gathering or Continental Breakfast. One caution, and this might have been only for the room I checked out. There was a very strong musty smell that lingered (I was told some Mardi Gras smokers broke the hotel's “no smoking inside” rule) that could possibly be a deal-breaker for some.
Special features include exposed brick walls, decorative fireplaces, canopy beds and other period accents. Many rooms open onto the Old New Orleans brick courtyard with marble and wrought iron tables, and lush tropical plants surrounding a petite pool and Jacuzzi. A few rooms also have private balconies.
