The Soniat in Chartres Street is everyone's dream of the ideal New Orleans French Quarter hotel. Away from the hustle and bustle of Bourbon Street, it is an oasis of charm, tranquility and Southern hospitality. Beautiful rooms, delicious breakfast in the courtyard, and exceptional assistance from all the staff, especially Paul, Edina and Erwin in Reception, who couldn't have done... More

The truth about the Soniat House? I do not want to share it! Maybe with my husband sometimes or a friend I will visit the Soniat House. Renting out the whole hotel with all your closest friends would be wonderful! But mostly, I like to visit alone. It is totally healing, an indescribable comfort for me. It is a time... More

Please don't ever move to New Orleans. We would so miss having you as our guest. We all look forward to your visits and it is not just because of the delicious chocolates that you bring to us. It is because you are such a delight. You have become part of the Soniat House family. Hurry back! More

Quite simply, my first stay at the Soniat House was like a dream. If you've ever fantasized about living in an historic townhouse in the Quarter, this is the place! It far exceeded my expectations. My room was beautiful, exquisitely tastefully decorated and so soothing and restful that I hated to leave. On top of that, the level of respectful,... More

I returned to the Soniat recently. I hadn't been there in months. Over the past two decades I've stayed there at least 25 times, probably more. It's always been like staying with friends -- friends with spectacularly good taste. The staff, as ever, was impeccable, the essence of Southern hospitality. A pleasant surprise this time -- the rooms have been... More

Happy to hear that you like our "new look" even though I know that nothing will get you to give up "your room." Happy to know that you will be back with us next week. A lot more has been done. Can't wait to show you. More

I found about this place through Internet and I must say that it did meet my expectations. If you are looking for authenticity and charm, you most probably will not be disappointed either. The building itself is beautiful and extremely well located - everything within the French Quarter can easily be reached on foot from there. My room had great,... More

I have stayed at The Soniat House during the past eight years, usually once or twice a year. When I want friends to know the authentic, old-world charm of New Orleans, I insist they stay at The Soniat House. The owners are beacons of light in the city for their unerring taste, warm, caring hospitality and for the enchanting experience... More

We just came back from a 3 night stay in one of the suites. The hotel was in a great location, and it was quiet & authentic. It was our first time at this hotel. We prefer staying at smaller, luxury properties for a more intimate experience. This place was good for that, however it all went out the window... More

This is the most difficult response that I have ever had to write. I have no idea what could have happened to your phone but I can assure you that no member of my staff was involved. Michele who was at the desk is a close friend of nearly 50 years. Edina who was also present to help with the... More

Stayed at the Soniat House years ago many times- a wonderful place - the real New Orleans. Leave the chain hotels for the mass market. Do not understand the negative comments - must have stayed at a different property.

The Soniat House was such an amazing experience. It was luxurious and the staff was wonderful, without ever being in your face. In fact, I often said to my husband that it felt like no one was there at all, until the moment you wanted or needed anything, and then they were very attentive. It felt like such a truly... More
