We had a great vacation staying at the Frenchman Orleans. Talk about being right in the action. There will be some noise. Mostly live jazz coming from the street! Less touristy than Bourbon Street, your front hallway balcony drapes right over Frenchman Street. Don't get me wrong, it's still touristy, but it's more the music lovers that could actually blend as possibly being a local. It is a great location because you are steps away from the Spotted Cat, Snug Harbor, The Blue Nile, & the Three Muses. They all have live sets of music & only on Friday & Sat does the street noise elevate to a level of Bourbon street.
There is a pool & a hot tub, both outdoors, 24 hrs. & no time limit. Parking is behind the building & we paid half of the average price of other hotels.
We had one of the "older decor" rooms. The desk clerk told me that a resort is buying 2 per year & remodeling them. Ours was dingy, but clean. We saw inside the newer ones & they were beautiful. Flat screens, new appliances, updated lighting etc. Either way, you have everything you need to cook, do laundry, shower & sleep comfortably. Air conditioner worked good & the courtyard/fountain inside was beautiful. We brought our bikes & they were safe, even if unlocked, inside the locked gate, under the stairs.
The neighborhood is called the Marigny & is home to some good restaurants, a dry cleaners, a a a small grocery/bodega, a bicycle repair shop, cafe's and an antique store. Plus you are one block from the French Quarter.
Location is the real gem for this property. It seems to be run well & the staff made every attempt to make our stay worry free. I definetely would stat there again~
