My first visit to New Orleans and what a memorable experience. This stay was arranged by my sister who is a returning guest of the hotel. The property is very unique and quaint. The furnishings and room decor was stunning. We returned from dinner to find the courtyard illuminated with candles. Stunning. We enjoyed the craziness of Bourbon Street to... More

We thought the hotel itself was very charming. I'll caveat that we only stayed at the hotel just one night, as a result of an extended business trip where my Fiance joined me for the weekend. Having stayed in another hotel around the same area that entire week leading up to that weekend, I can say it was not worth... More

It is a little difficult to respond to a review written in July about a stay in December. We can usually tell who the reviewer is, what room they stayed in and how much they paid and are able to respond to any concerns they may have but after 7 months I can only say that I am sorry that... More

This hotel is a great old fashioned hotel with old fashioned service. Rooms are in excellent condition but old style, and it takes you back to the 60's with the 21st century twist. Scones for breakfast were a highlight.

We are always happy to hear from guests who find us "unique." We are actually aiming to give a feeling of what life was like in the French Quarter in the 1830s without looking like a museum. It is not easy to do. I'm glad to hear that we are efforts are appreciated. Come back soon. We would love to... More

Wonderfully homelike atmosphere with wonderful staff that take care of you as if you were visiting the 100th time! The decoration is lovely with wonderful details, all the furniture are antique. The breakfast is served in the room, the courtyards are very calm and serene. Great location in N.O.LA!

We were astonished with how good this place was, especially as we'd read a couple of bad reviews of Soniat House after we'd made our booking. If you're looking for an intimate boutique hotel that reinforces the historic style of New Orleans and the relaxed elegance of its people then this is it. There are large top end luxury hotels...

Although it is on the edge of the French Quarter, Soniat House feels like being transported to New Orleans in the past. Rooms are very quiet and private - and the suites are huge. We loved the atmosphere and breakfast tray. Greet for a romantic getaway - an oasis of calm and quiet in a city that never sleeps. A... More

For those that love being taken care of like you have not been before, we highly recommend the Soniat House. A quaint small luxury hotel that meets and exceeds every expectation of old world luxury. We had a wonderful downstairs room that had everything we needed including convenience. The luxury of having a porter come take your car from you... More

This is a favorite spot in a favorite city for us, and as always the stay was most enjoyable. It is in the middle of everything and yet quiet and relaxing. In the quarter, on the Eastern edge which makes it easy to get in and out of the quarter if so desired and the breakfast coffee and biscuits are... More

Soniat house is still wonderful. Forget all the lame bad reviews. The staff and location and the building is wonderful and the rooms are quaint and comfortable. To me it is the best of both worlds-- small enough to be like a B&B but big enough to have your privacy and first class service. This is my 3rd time here... More

Amazing building, fantastic location, superb service. Right in the middle of the French quarter (but far away enough from the chaos of Bourbon street) it gives an authentic experience in a peaceful setting. Desk staff were super helpful and knowledgable.
