If you are looking for a hotel that is a good value (not great, just good) for your dollar, DO NOT look at Frenchmen Orleans at 519. We reserved in February, and spent this weekend (May 20/21/22) there. Checked in at 4pm, the computer was down, and Ryan only knew of 2 rooms that were available, as they had evidently...

Let me begin by thanking you for selecting the Frenchmen Orleans at 519 for your recent stay in New Orleans, Louisiana.

We had a suite on the second floor. Given how the two music venues across the street and a big brass band halfway down the block were already in full swing when we checked in to room 202 in the early evening, we were concerned about getting a good night's sleep. However, once the air conditioner was going, the rooms...

Yeah, there's music and people playing right outside. And yeah, it gets a little noisy. But if you came for the music and the sights there is no better place. The common balcony overlooking the street is a great place to chill after walking or touring all day. Been here twice and would come again

Loved walking around ar night- plenty of bars and there is a funky night art market. Not the hype of neon like boy on street and it seemed like more locals were there. We didn't eat there because it was too late but the bars and music were going strong!

I stayed at 519 Frenchman's for the first time in a few years. I have stayed there many times before and the caliber of the accommodations were quite substandard.

Staying in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

Neighbourhood Profile
Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward, the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely residential. Of course, folks around here love to go out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the festivities, well then so much the better! Home to some of the most revered live music venues in New Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining destinations, and a come-as-you-are vibe that’s as infectious as it is alluring, this is real deal New Orleans oozing with southern hospitality and the promise of a most epic night out. For endless opportunities to boogie, to admire row upon row of lovingly restored homes, and to escape the fray of the more touristic parts of town (but still live it up in grand style) head to Faubourg Marigny & Bywater.
