I've stayed here many times but today when some plans fells through for me, Soniat House staff (Irvin) made great efforts to make sure I had a place to come home to. I've stayed in many rooms here but Room 30 was a great surprise and luxurious treat. I've stayed in different rooms every time I come visit, and each... More

We've stayed in great hotels all over the world and Soniat House is one of the best without doubt. Words that immediately come to mind: elegance, charm, beauty, warmth ... on and on. We stayed in a quiet second floor suite off the courtyard and a Magnolia tree was in full bloom right outside our window. The staff was so... More

My husband and I chose to celebrate our 20th anniversary in New Orleans, and found the Soniat House through the Amex Departures app. We were not disappointed! The hotel is elegant yet unpretentious.It felt as if we had our very own townhouse in the French Quarter. Our junior suite (#62) was extremely comfortable and quiet. The staff are friendly and...

We spent four nights here recently in a courtyard king suite. What we liked about it was, amongst all the craziness in the French Quarter, this set of connected townhouses is a quiet oasis. The room was comfortable and decorated in antiques. The bathroom was small, but more than adequate with a very good shower. The staff was very accommodating.... More

I wish that you had asked about coffee. Complimentary coffee is always available, freshly brewed and delivered quickly to your room or served on the courtyard 24 hours a day. There have been a few comments on Trip Advisor about " no coffee pot in room " but that will never happen. We want our guests to feel as if... More

Was beyond my expectations. Like stepping out of a busy city into a relaxing home away from home. Not your normal big city hotel.. staff friendly, efficient and accommodating. Courtyards were very calming. Rooms tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Breakfast served in room makes your day feel special. Loved the whole experience.

The Soniat House was by far one of the most memorable places we have ever stayed. The management and staff are very attentive to guest needs and go above board to make your stay a comfortable one. The spacious rooms are individually decorated and offer a quiet and relaxing environment. The location is ideal. You are within walking distance to... More

I brought my daughter to finally see the wonderful Soniat House. She had never witnessed such a warm greeting. We love this special property so much it feels like home. We are buying an apartment a few blocks away for longer two month stays in the FQ but our shorter stays will be at Soniat House. I love it's atmosphere... More

I hope that this response will be correctly posted. I keep trying because I want you to know how much we appreciate your wonderful reviews, how pleased we are that Emily enjoyed Mardi Gras and how sad we are that you have bought your own residence in New Orleans and will have no need for us. At least you have... More

Once again I will tell you how much we appreciate your review. As you may have noticed my original response to your review posted in two places - some sort of electronic snafu. I did contact Trip Advisor to ask them to remove it from the wrong review. I just realized that when they removed the response from the wrong... More

Let me start out by saying that the staff are wonderful and the location is very convenient to downtown. However, for the price and due to reviews, I was expecting to be dazzled. My best friend who is an antique dealer, read about the furniture and decor, and we were very excited about our stay beforehand. When we arrived, the... More

I am very sorry to hear that you were disappointed by your stay at the the Soniat House. The headboard in your room is definitely new as are a some of the beds now. We have discovered that antique beds and chairs don't hold up to the constant use of a hotel room.The rest of the furnishings are at the... More

We stayed for 2 nights,  in a cold January weather, in a room for 2.  Location of the hotel is good.  Room is nice but the basic requirement from a hotel of any level - hot water in the room was missing.   After the first 5 minutes shower,   the second guest of the room did not have hot water for...

I can't possibly apologize enough for the lack of hot water your first evening. I honestly don't understand how it happened. Each room has at least a 45 gallon water heater which is normally more than adequate. It was as unusually cold January so the water entering the system would have been much colder than normal which might account for... More
