St. Vincent's isn't right in the French quarter area but it was really nice to see another side of town. The building is really interesting and the rooms were very cozy! The staff was great and everyone was very friendly and helpful. There is a bus stop right on the same block, which can take you to the French quarter... More

We go to New Orleans a few times a year and expected, from the address, that this would be OK. We were going over a holiday weekend and all our regular places were marked WAY up, so we gave it a try. We were there all of 10 minutes. Even knowing that the city was booked up and that we... More

We stayed @ St Vincents for 6 nights. The room was very affordable and was located in a safe neighbourhood within walking distance to downtown. The buildings history is interesting, as it is a former orphan asylum. The building is slightly run down, but has charm with it's high ceilings, long hallways, and pool and courtyard. The service was friendly,... More

We read ALL of the reviews on this site with much trepidation, before we left sadly to attend our little grand daughter's funeral in New Orleans. Our New Orleans based son reassured us that he had had many friends stay at St. Vincent's. Apparently the negative reviews come from inexperienced and/or nervous travelers who have not been open to an... More

My boyfriend and I visited St. Vincent's the weekend before Fat Tuesday. After reading the reviews on this place, we were prepared for the worst but had no choice but to keep the reservation, as it is impossible to find cheap hotels for Mardi Gras weekend unless you book way in advance, or stay far away. When we got there,... More

I booked this room before seeing the reviews posted here. Believe them and do not stay here! The room was filthy - we bought flip flops and brought towels and sheets from home (after reading these reviews) - after checking in. The guest register was tracked on a piece of notebook paper. We woke up to termites on the beds... More

This location has hosted my group of Mardi Gras participants since 1998. We bombard this establishment with 10-32 people; the Inn Keerp and his staff are very accomodating. True, it is NOT in the best neighborhood nor does it have the best toiletries or linens BUT they are clean. Y Yes, the place is OLD, almost everything in New Orleans... More

Stayed at St. Vincents last week and can not wait until I am back in N'Leans again and I will definitely return!! I phone the day I arrived in the city and was given a rate of $39.00 per night (with tax came to $45), what a deal!! The building is beautiful with great character; the staff very friendly. The...

Pictures were cute but the place is run down beyond comprehension! they put us all the way on the top floor with no one else staying up there and there was no phone in the room. The room was filthy, stains on the sheets, air conditioner did not work. We got in late so we dealt with it for the... More

I will give this hotel 2 stars only because it has a great coffee house across the street and a bus stop 1 block away for easy inexpensive access to the french Quarter. I travel to different cities and write music reviews for a magazine. I am not one to be scared of a location or cheap hotel rooms, but... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
St. Vincent Guest House is Under New Management!!! As of December 1, 2013 The Guest House will be operated under a new management team that is dedicated to improving both the aesthetics and overall condition of the entire establishment. Steps are being taken to bring this beautiful and historical building to its fullest potential and offer our guests a wonderful experience and comfortable stay. St. Vincent's is not a full service hotel, it is more of hostel/quaint budget hotel that is both economical and located in one of the best areas in the City of New Orleans. (The Lower Garden District) First opened in 1861 as a orphanage; the building has a distinct and colorful history that is worth exploring. The lobby is adorned with photos that reflect the history and show the building's usage over the last 100+ years. Each room has an individual decor and design scape that will make you feel as though you are walking into an era of Nola history gone by... The grounds are well kept and offer several areas for outdoor seating for morning coffee, an evening cigar or just great conversations... Our staff have been trained and are dedicated to providing each guest with the highest level of customer services with courtesy and a smile. Although there are not a great deal of amenities available, every guest will find that the Guest House offers a tremendous value for the price. We have both private sleeping rooms as well as dormitories available. There have been several negative reviews that have been posted in the past and those reviews have been duly noted and taken into consideration for action as we move towards improvements... Likewise, there have been several positive reviews from guests who have enjoyed their stay and the experience at the Guest House; and for that we are thankful! We look forward to this new era at St. Vincent's and welcome each and every guest with open arms... ... more   less
