Expert Review

Music fans will dig this small, quirky hotel set a stone’s throw from some of the city’s best jazz venues. Guests can stroll along Frenchmen Street popping in and out of clubs and bars while the tempting sounds of local bands spill into the streets. It’s a great taste of the city, as many visitors hardly explore outside than the Quarter. Housed in two 19th-century buildings, The Frenchmen, though a little run down, boasts plenty of perks. A tropical courtyard has a pool and Jacuzzi, and transforms into a nighttime hangout lit by flickering lights. All 27 rooms, although a bit shabby, are bedecked in antique furnishings and tout their own unique style. Make sure you inquire about the size of the room when booking since dimensions greatly vary and some rooms are extremely tiny. A few units have private balconies, a loft bedroom, and a living area. Others have exposed brick walls, fireplaces, and canopy beds.
