French Market Inn
This former government house dates back to the days when Louisiana was still a French colony.
This inn was built in the 19th century for the Baron Xavier de Pontalba, and details such as exposed brick walls date back to its beginnings. Period furnishings and stone walkways throughout the garden courtyard further contribute to an old-time air that truly captures the essence of New Orleans. That said, all 95 rooms are up-to-date with cable TV, irons, hair dryers, voice mail and data ports. The location is just steps from the French Market, which was completely redone after Katrina and spotlights local artisans and musicians as well the usual (and sometimes tacky) tourist souvenirs. You can enjoy coffee and beignets at Café du Monde, a muffaletta at the Central Grocery or a multi-course dinner including boiled beef brisket and shrimp remoulade at Tujague's restaurant --- all are within a few blocks.
