My husband and I recently spent 3 nights at the Soniat House. It came highly regarded by a trusted friend, and I am pleased that we chose to stay there.
Room: We booked a junior suite, but was upgraded upon our arrival. Our room was across the street and overlooked a beautiful courtyard. The room itself was large, with a bedroom and living room. The size of living room could have accommodated more furniture and perhaps a larger sofa would have been nice, but the pieces themselves fit with the antique aesthetic of the property and room. The room otherwise was tastefully appointed, and the bed was comfortable and the bathtub was large and very nice. My only complaint about the room would be that the window shades should open. I understand that it may be for privacy reasons, but there were times when I wanted to see outside and not being able to made me feel a little claustrophobic. There was one large window that had drapes that could, but otherwise the room was quite dark.
Services: There is an honour bar, and good wifi. The staff was all lovely and I enjoyed chatting with them. The biscuits and coffee in the morning are a nice option, but perhaps a bit $ for what you get. Nevertheless, eating them in the courtyard was so peaceful and a great way to start the day.
Location: I loved the location. It was far away from the craziness of Bourbon, and there were some great options for food and drink nearby. Also, its proximity to Frenchmen street was perfect.
This hotel allows you to enjoy the historic aspect of the French quarter. It is not perfect, but that is what's charming about it. If you like old houses, or appreciate architecture and history then I think this would be a great choice. If you are a sucker for straight up luxury, then you may be left wanting more.
