The Soniat House and its staff are simply fantastic. The feeling and experience that one gets when staying here is exactly what a trip to New Orleans and especially the French Quarter should be about. One is surrounded by elegance and charm of a bygone...More

Not very many guests can resist the biscuits. I am glad that you didn't. Please come back soon.

Sonia House is a beautiful hotel. The location is fantastic - in the French Quarter but away from the crazy center of it. I booked one of the superior single rooms - the one I stayed in was right next to the front door. While...More

Visited for Mardi Gras. Romantic, charming and homely. Sympathetically decorated with antique furniture. Fantastic service, could not be improved on. Great central location, very close to all the celebrations and attractions but just far enough away from the heavily populated areas. This is a grown...More

Impossible to describe what it is like to walk through the courtyards of these historical beautifully restored buildings that comprise the Soniat. You are entering an elegant world not found anywhere else in the city. Each room is tastefully decorated and amazingly comfortable. If you...More

If Lafcadio Hearn had seen fit to create with his own hands a refuge for his most intimate friends, it would have been the Soniat House. Its deep, timeless beauty is an unfailing apotropaic for the hurly burly of local revelers and bacchantes. Jonathan M,...More

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
