My husband and I recently spent 3 nights at the Soniat House. It came highly regarded by a trusted friend, and I am pleased that we chose to stay there. Room: We booked a junior suite, but was upgraded upon our arrival. Our room was across the street and overlooked a beautiful courtyard. The room itself was large, with a... More

I can't imagine anyone being disappointed with a stay at Soniat House. Unless you have little regard for historic sites and genuine southern hospitality and charm. Yes, there are modern luxuries you may need to live without here (like one other reviewer, our bathroom didn't have hooks for robes!) but, really, why would you choose a modern hotel in a... More

Upon entering the the doors, it felt as if we had arrived in a magical land of peace and quiet. The busyness of the street and the people didn't enter those doors at all. My husband and I spent three nights here and were elated at what we found at this perfect retreat. We had made last minute plans to... More

I have stayed at the Soniat House several times since 2007, alone and with my husband. When you walk through the green doors into the courtyard, you step back into time, into a world where service and soft spoken manners were once considered de rigeur. I have stayed in two of the grand suites, #64, which is located across the... More

My husband and I were celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary having stayed at the delightful Soniat House in 2004, we wanted to return. It was all the things we remembered and more. We had a magical stay in this little idyll within the French Quarter. Our room was as gorgeous as we remember it and the team at Soniat... More

I can not recommend this place enough. The Soniat House is the perfect place to stay if you are visiting the French Quarter. The room was the perfect mix of old world charm and modern day amenities. The entire staff was not only super friendly but super educated and informative of all things New Orleans. Once we got there they... More

I hate to admit it, but I've stayed at Soniat House three times this year and it gets better and better.. I met a lady my age who has stayed five times this year! It's fun moving around to different rooms. I've stayed in at least six different rooms since I was in my 20's, 21 being my favorite. There... More

Just checked in to this adorable well situated hotel that came highly recommended and was extremely excited to stay here. To be given a room the size if a closet with NO windows and an unbearable musty smell. Closet in the tiny dark bathroom. Save your money and stay anyplace other than this horrible establishment. Couldn't be more disappointed!!

Don't you think that you could say a kind word about the hotel which moved you from you $245 room which you did not like to a $ 550 suite for the same $245 rate as soon as we had a check out and were able to clean the room ? It took me a couple of days of research... More

The Soniat is perfect in so many ways and staffed by such charming people that it pains me to gripe about anything. However, as it's billed as a luxury hotel and charges accordingly, it seems to me that the bathroom in a two-bedroom suite should at least be fully functional, if not actually luxurious. Ours (we had room 50) had... More

No hooks? I can't apologize enough. How could we have missed that? It will be rectified immediately. We are in the process of redoing all of the bathrooms. Thanks to your constructive comments we will move that bath to the top of the list. Give us another try. We will try to do better for you next time. We'll have... More

We've stayed at Soniat House twice now - for my birthday in February, 2014, and in 2012. I'm hoping to make it a yearly experience! This is a beautiful, romantic and historic inn complete with a charming courtyard! The staff are both friendly and accommodating, including the resident cat - Claire! The location is perfect too!
