I lived in NO in the early80's. And I worked the desk nights. I always thought it to be a beautiful. And I would always be very hospitable. Walking thru the cast iron gates and walking thru the door takes you back to the past.

My husband and I traveled to New Orleans for our one year wedding and wanted to stay at a place with charm, but without being bothered. This fit the bill. The house is immaculately furnished and in the perfect location- quiet street, but very close to everything. We are from NYC and could tell the proprietor was from Brooklyn right... More

My husband and I stayed here this past weekend for our anniversary. We live about an hour from NOLA and we've been admiring the Cornstalk Hotel ever since we first saw it 3 years ago. I was super excited to get to finally stay there. We stayed for one night in one of the rooms overlooking the balcony. First off... More

The location is great. The inn is lovely but if you want southern hospitality this is not your inn. Having a two hour check in window is overly restrictive. Being told repeatedly what I have to do was annoying. When it is 101 degrees outside and you are not even offered a drink of cold water on check in it... More

You can't beat the location, mid-French Quarter and all. The innkeeper is suitably....odd, and helpful in his own way. Be prepared for small rooms--it's not like you're spending a lot of time in them anyway, or, at least, you shouldn't be. Take advantage of the upstairs porch for people watching and planning your day.

We stayed there the last week off June. When we first saw our room we were shocked at how beautiful it is. Old school charm, high ceilings, beautiful chandelier and furniture. We loved it so much that we cancelled our reservations we had at Prince Conti hotel so we could spend more time at the Cornstalk. Louis the manager is... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night before a wedding. We were drawn to it because of family history with the home and wanted to stay where our family had once owned back in the early 1800s. We stayed in room 11 upstairs which was a good size for wha we needed. Now we will start with the... More

Beautiful rooms, very comfortable. You don't see the staff much but they have these amazing printout of everything going on around town. If you want a full service hotel, go somewhere else. No waters, food etc. But the charm of this historical place is well worth it, and best location ever. Quiet, but close to everything.

First of all, it is advertised as a bed and breakfast..and they offer no breakfast!! It needs to be renewed, my closet in room 15 was broken, very little space to place things in the room, some windows can not be opened..... a bit dissapointed all together.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Cornstalk Hotel has been newly renovated and refurbished featuring fourteen exquisite guest rooms. Brilliant crystal chandeliers, antique mirrors and furnishings adorn the entrance hall, beautifully set off by high vaulted ceilings. The rosette scrolls, cherubs, medallions, stained-glass windows, fireplaces and canopy beds are all relics of a Louisiana plantation home. We are in the heart of the Vieux Carre' (French Quarter), with the sights, the sounds, the gourmet food and night life of old New Orleans. ... more   less
