This small hotel has only 30 rooms, 20 in the main building and 10 more across the street. The charm of the place turned out to be the most memorable part of our visit to New Orleans. We had a large comfortable suite on the ground floor of the main building opening directly into the wonderful private courtyard. Our room...

The Soniat House is a charming & elegant small hotel. Being on the outer edge of the French Quarter, all of the historical sites & great restaurants are within easy walking distance, but it also is quiet & peaceful with its pretty courtyard. Best of all, the Soniat staff are exceptionally helpful & friendly. Special kudos go to Scott, Linda,...

This was our third time staying at the Soniat House. It was a very long time between visits and it was still as wonderful as we remembered. It is just a warm, inviting, comfortable place to stay. The breakfast biscuits and coffee are not to be missed. The staff is absoulutely wonderful and helpful with recommendations of restaurants. Can't wait...

This was my fifth visit to New Orleans. All of the previous visits were either for business or combined business/leisure so while we stayed at quite luxurious places in the CBD we were never able to select our hotel, and felt that they lacked local character. This time my husband and I visited only to celebrate our anniversary. We satisfied...

If you want the hotel experience this is not the place for you. I would call this an inn. It does not have a bar fridge in the room (though one may be installed if needed for meditations for example); there is no restaurant though a simple and delicious breakfast may be ordered until quite late; and no room service...

There's a very simple lesson from reading these reviews. If you want the uniform predictability of a chain hotel - good news: Marriott, Westin, Intercontinental etc can give you that bland experience of not knowing what city you're in, an artic blast of air-conditioning, and a coffee machine with milk powder. It's a free world. If you've got a bit...

We enjoyed the location and style of this hotel very much, however felt it really need updating we stayed in a junior suite and paid a lot for it based on the fact that there as so many places in New Orleans to choose from but wanted to treat ourselves.

I'm so sorry that you were disappointed with your suite. When we first opened Soniat House we aimed for the " aged beauty " look. The pale linen fabrics and painted furniture were a success at the time but they have fallen out of favor. As we redo ( and we never stop redoing rooms ) we are using newer...

Stayed here for a long weekend fun visit to NOLA. Rooms are lovely. Hospitality is exception. Advise a rear room for light sleepers. Hotel was perfectly located for us, surrounded by French Qtr architecture, close enough to walk to everything, removed enough to be peaceful. Great stay!

We chose this hotel based on reputation and location, plus we are members of SLH. The hotel was full, and our first room was small. The next day, however, an upgrade became available, and we were moved to a lovely suite. Both rooms were inside courtyards, so they were very quiet. Extremely clean. The decor is beautiful and tasteful; French...

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
