Historical Traveller Reviews of The Frenchmen Hotel

Great Time with Louisiana Hospitality

from A TripAdvisor Member
My wife and I stayed aat the Frenchmen the week before Mardi Gras and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The price was extemely reasonable as it included secure parking, a satifying continental breakfast and knowledgable desk personnel. The neighborhood was eclectic and only a block from the French Quarter. We definitely intend to return and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Expensive for what you get but cool

from A TripAdvisor Member
First off, Frenchman street in New Orleans is THE best place to stay in the city. Close enough for the madness on Bourbon street, but cleaner, quieter and with a better local flavor.

The hotel itself would have been great, but the room had a funky smell to it and we weren't offered a different one. So we had a stinky room for four nights. A really loud party was also going on one night that was pretty bad. The room was a bit dirty when we arrived, and we had to have the housekeeping staff go through it again.

The location is great, the hotel is cool, but very expensive for what you get, and we just thought we should have deserved more for the price paid in both service and cleanliness.

Love the hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
i love this hotel. it's beautiful.i believe circa 1860 historic landmark (check the date on that) with an upstairs area overlooking a courtyard with pool situated perfectly behind a privacy gate. attached parking. delicious rooms with high celings. and a staff dedicated to making your stay comfortable and pleasant. the overall feel of the place is a wonderfully laid back kind of charm. beautiful scenery and wonderfully comfortable rooms. not to mention i parked my car ONCE in their lot and never had to move it again. from decatur to burboun to st phillips and back again i could walk ANYWHERE i needed or wanted to be.
in short. this place is fantastic.

Time of our lives!!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
It was the first time in four years that my wife and I were able to get away from work and children. We stayed at the Frenchman bed and breakfast and were blown away by how receptive and hospitality we were shown. The room was more than what we imagined. I have payed double for less. Price was great, location outstanding, stay ... look forward to going back soon. Thanks to the people at The Frenchman.

Dream come true!

Just got back from my first trip to New Orleans. After reading several positive reviews on this site, I booked my room through The Frenchmen's own website. The only thing that was wrong during check-in was that they had me in a room with a standard double bed & I had booked a queen bed. I realized it before we left the lobby and my room was changed with no problem. The staff was helpful in every way. A piece of the shower head was missing and they fixed it the afternoon we reported it.

I loved the location of the hotel. It was very close to places to eat and listen to music, plus it was just a block away from the riverfront streetcar. It was very convenient to the French Market and no problem at all to walk to Bourbon Street. I loved staying on this side of the Quarter!

The room I had was very nice and clean. We were given fresh towels every day, even though we hung ours up and didn't request new ones. The pool/hot tub/courtyard area is wonderful. Couldn't ask for a better retreat!

I plan to stay there again and again!

We liked it so much

from A TripAdvisor Member
We booked that hotel from Europe via the web. Definetely, that's the place where to stay: outside FQ to avoid the noise, but few foot from the market square and the nice café du monde. Marigny neighborough is the one to go to ear music, to have very good food (trust me as a French). We found the hotel very cosy, the rooms very big and comfortable, the looking as per the pictures on the web. Moreover, the service was excellent, the manager on duty and any other person were always helpful. I highly recommend the Frenchmen for any new comer in NO and I'd go there at any time. Regards, Eric

frechmen fun

from waderlust
Well I want to report that all my hangers were in excellant condition!
I have stayed at alot of hotels and this had the personality of NOLA along with charm- excellant pastry and 5 different coffees! Our room had been renovated but the shower in the other rooms ran hot and cold.I have never seen such a hard working cleaning staff and the rooms were clean.GREAT LOCATION-GREAT PRICE

Very Nice Experience

from A TripAdvisor Member
The Frenchmen is a very nice place to stay. The rooms were decorated nicely and the courtyard with the jacuzzi and pool were beautiful.
Above all, the staff was probably the friendliest I've ever encountered. Very outgoing and pleasant. The only bad thing I could say about it is that the rooms were just a little small, but for a single person or a close couple, it was fine.

wonderful anniversary stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
We enjoyed the charming room. Check-in was great. The hotel staff knowlegeable with information about the city and helpful with all requests. Rooms were clean and cleaned each day while we were out.
Plenty of towels and toiletries. Convient location to the French Market and Quarter. We will stay there again when visiting New Orleans. For thoses people expecting a Chain Hotel, this is NOT it, but it is a wonderful quaint old Bed and Breakfast, if you are looking for something other than the usual run of the mill room, this is what you will want. Oh, I forget to mention the quite courtyard with the pool and hot tub, they are not large enough for laps, but big enough to cool off or unwind in the HOT tub, and it was quite warm. We enjoyed ourselves very much. Frank and Ellen Pinto

Very Disappointed in the Frenchmen

from A TripAdvisor Member
I received the worst service I have ever experienced at the Frenchmen Hotel. I was on a road trip with some friends and stayed there in May.
Our room was only even vaccuumed once, the sheets (which were dirty when we got there) were never changed, we had to request more and put them on ourselves, and there was mold in the shower. We complained about these things and expected them to be changed. When we went to check out, the manager would not adjust the bill even though none of our complaints were adressed. He lied and said that none of them had been reported even though the log book was sitting right in front of him and I had personally watched one of the people at the front desk record each of our complaints. He even had the nerve to raise his voice to us. Don't stay at this hotel, it's not worth the stress that it causes.
