This historic, old mansion-turned hotel is definitely a place to stay to get your fill of Mardi Gras parades on St.Charles. The rooms are quite large ... they show their age, but they are clean. If you want quiet and peaceful ... this is the wrong place. But if you like to be close to the action, with a place... More

If you would like he opportunity to walk into an authentic New Orleans mansion, to here. We went on Christmas Eve and the hotel was decked out for the season. Inside, the property is furnish d in authentic antiques and has old world feel. In other words, no reproductions and it doesn't look as if a decorator contrived the place.... More

My husband and I visited The Columns for a wedding, which was also held at the hotel. Let me start by saying the hotel is beautiful and it's in a nice neighborhood right on the St. Charles streetcar line. It's an intimate, beautiful venue for a wedding. The staff is friendly. My only major complaint was that it was noisy.... More

Ok, so this place is on St. Charles which might be the most beautiful street in the city. The architectural is like something out of a magazine, with the trees, and streetlights, ect, ect. Romantic and this place, the Columns just fits right in perfectly. The interior is as decadent and aged as the exterior (a good thing), and comfortable... More

We loved our visit at the mansion! It has a nice historical feel and has been preserved nicely! Our room was decorated in toile wallpaper and antique furniture. It did have a very strange stench which I could only chalk up as the place just being very old! So we looked past the smell. It really was a charming place... More

We stayed in Room 22, and it was beautiful. The staff were hospitable, and allowed us to check in several hours early, as well as hold our bags as we were on a tour that would have put us past the check out time. Sleeping was an issue as there was early construction at the building next door, which was... More

Beautiful evening and delicious drinks and appetizers. We had the brandy milk punch and the signature "streetcar" along with crabcakes- perfect! Would love to come back again sometime to stay in the hotel - it's stunning!

My daughter and I went here on my first night in town - we just wanted a place where we could be outside, relax, catch up and enjoy a cocktail. It was perfect - the cheese plate and cocktails were great and we really enjoyed our southern feeling surroundings.
