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 arrived at Soniat House on the second of my four night “weekend” minimum stay and was taken to Room 11 just inside the front door, the former carriage entrance of the property, which meant I was sleeping in the horses’ quarters. Horses apparently don’t need soundproofing, shutters, or civility. I fell into bed at 1:00 am, only to be... More

There is never an excuse serving cold coffee or disturbing a guest by serving a preordered breakfast 1/2 hour early. The cost of all breakfasts for the 4 of you have already been credited to your respective credit cards. Horses were never quartered at 1133 Chartres Street. In the 1830s the family carriage would enter the property through the carriageway... More

I've stayed here multiple times over the years and while still good, and old South authentic, it has become a little tired and indifferent. We were offered room 24 at the beginning and were so tired we took it even though it is plain and has a bathroom straight out of Home Depot (check out the tub/shower insert) and when... More

Rooms are like staying at your grandmother house ...relaxed, clean,...you will be very well taken care off by everyone at this hotel.....Bkfst is always nice specially if taken in the Patio. This hotel is for people who want to stay in a House rather than a modern hotel.....it is also well located within walking distance of most places to visit... More

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
