The Cornstalk is lovely inside and out. The rooms are exquisite. Louis, the owner/manager/concierge/really nice guy was super helpful and accommodating. He got us just the right room, and it was reasonably priced. He has even compiled a list of restaurants and tours for the guests' convenience, which served us well. All we had to do was tell him what tour we wanted to do the day before and he made arrangements for us. The Cornstalk is easy walking distance to the top restaurants and best local music in the French Quarter. You know you're at a historic place when the guided walking tours and buggy drivers stop at the hotel to talk about it as a landmark, both of which we witnessed. Leaving the modern\touristy parts of the French Quarter (Bourbon Street) and going back to the room was like going back in time to the 1800's, only with convenient modern amenities. The Mardi Gras parade went right by the hotel and we could watch it all from the porch and courtyard, or we could have used the common balcony. I would definitely recommend the Cornstalk and will stay here again when we’re in NOLA.
