The Historic French Market Inn is in a great location next to the water and 2 blocks from Jackson Square. The Hotel has a coffee shop and a bar and a nice courtyard. I stayed in room no. 335. It had two queen-sized beds, two large windows, and a large bathroom. The room had a TV, coffee maker, iron, iron board, and good air conditioning.
