Our second time at this hotel- perfect! The room was large, lovely bedding, and a gracious staff. The location is perfect. A walkable distance from most Mardi Gras parades, and in the Quarter, but mercifully away from late night revelry. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in New Orleans.

Small, beautiful and quaint hotel with the most wonderful staff! We were here for one night but our experience was so delightful that we will definitely be back! Don't forget to order the biscuits, they are to die for!

Just a couple of blocks from Cafe Du Monde and the French Market this centrally located Inn is an oasis from the wonderful street noise that fill NOLA. The staff is helpful, the service is excellent and the location perfect.

Thank you so much for your kind review. I hope you didn't spend all of your mornings at Café du Monde and stayed to enjoy our biscuits and café au lait on the courtyard at least one morning. More

This place is amazing. The whole staff is friendly and real!!! No feeling of people being nice because they have to be. Always ready to do anything they can for you. Went way out of their way to make sure our weekend was perfect. Spotlessly clean. Really nice rooms lacking nothing. Would love a full breakfast but there are plenty... More

This is a charming hotel, in a quiet location in Nola. Staff was very helpful and friendly. They have homemade biscuits every morning with strawberry preserves and fresh squeezed orange juice and of course coffee. There is a beautiful courtyard. Really enjoyed our stay here.

Looking forward to returning to Soniat House. Charming spot and feel like you are in your own apartment in back residential portion of French Quarter. Had a nice room (the one often pictured) and there's well-maintained spaces like the handsome reception area with a lovely, quiet interior courtyard. Nice honor bar and sitting room that feels like you are in... More

If you want to enjoy New Orleans and absorb the flavour of the city, The Soniat House provides the perfect location. The ambience seeps into your skin in a way that big hotels can never achieve. A courtyard room means you can enjoy the view of orange trees and trickling water while you enjoy freshly cooked biscuits for breakfast. Service... More

A wonderful hotel, one of the most enjoyable I've ever stayed at. A tasteful, understated and very personal charm to it. We had a suite: the bedroom and its separate sitting area were spacious and attractively decorated. (The suite had been recently renovated, with a bathroom and efficiently functioning A/C.) The communal areas are beautiful, particularly the lush garden courtyard.... More

Situated just far enough from the 24/7 beating heart of the French Quarter to offer a quiet respite, a suite at Soniat House is like having your own private "worm hole" that can transport you to a calm, serene compound to recuperate and relax before suiting up and diving in once more. The hotel claims both sides of Chartres Street... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
