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.

This hotel came highly recommended to us by friends who have stayed before. Even though the price seemed high for the b&b-esque photos we saw online, the reviews on trip advisor and some other sites (thesmiths.com, travelandleisure.com) we decided to go for it. At first slightly skeptical when put on the third floor (there's an elevator but teeny and slow).... More

I am sorry to hear that you won't be coming back to Soniat House. We would love to have the opportunity to please you. We could have corrected many of your complaints had you called the Front Desk i.e. the slow drain, the cockroach, the bed that was made-up incorrectly. Your third floor room was actually an upgrade from the... More

Stayed here for the first time with hubby for a long romantic weekend. The hotel was lovely and very discreet. From the main street, it look like one the homes. Once the gates opened, it was an oasis. Very clean, with great staff who are very attentive. Close to everything in the French Quarter as well. Looking forward to going... More

I had to spend more time than planned in my room and the staff went out of their way to help - sending out for food for me when it was raining . A charming oasis in the French Quarter . accès to the New Orleans Athletic Club was a bonus .

" Rain, rain - GO AWAY" Yes we did have quite a bit while you were with us. It happens every Jazz Fest unfortunately. I am sure that you were warned that rain boots are de riguer.

I was expecting so much more after all the great reviews I had read. At first we had room no 12 that only had a side table for one person. Very noisy from the guests above us. After 2 nights we were moved to 14. That was better noise wise. But in both rooms the bathrooms were far from luxurious.... More

We have stayed here 3 times during the French Quarter Music Festival. The expense was always justified by the ambience, the quiet and the friendliness of staff, at least until now. Now, the next door neighbors have installed a temporary stage and bar to play music to past midnight while we stayed there. Imagine, we're paying $600/night for the privelage... More

I am very sorry that you were disturbed by very thoughtless part-time neighbors. Neither of the owners of the building next door even live in New Orleans. They seem to come to town once a year to give a party. The Soniat House has no advance notice of these functions. Over the years that they have owned the building there... More
