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.

My wife and I and our ten year old son just returned from a week at the Soniat House. What an amazing hotel! Actually it feels much more like you are staying with friends at their awesome home in the French quarter. Special thanks to Ervin who helped us book the incredible suite

After all the hype, I may have just had my bar set too high. Don’t get me wrong the atmosphere is there and the service is best anywhere and old school classy. Rooms however need a bit of attention. Bed was almost terrible; shower tile and grout left a lot to be desired; just

"Larger rooms on the gallery."
"Rooms on the ground floor are larger, those facing the courtyard are away from the road. Rooms 50 and 55 highly recommended"
"I loved Suite 38"
"Stairs are very steep and elevator is a little spooky so if you have mobility issues 1st floor is best. 2nd fl if you want a balcony."
"Ground floor in the building opposite the main entrance."
