“Always a Charm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2009

Though my husband and I are locals, we love to take advantage of being tourists in our own city. We found this beautiful hotel by stumbling upon the hip and sexy candlelit 'Loa' lounge downstairs - which regularly provides our last nightcap before retiring for the evening... great bartenders - great cocktails!
We make IH our choice for a weekend of submersing ourselves in all that is New Orleans. This hip boutique hotel is in a great area of town, very close to all the action, but far enough from the constant noise to get a good night's rest.
The staff here have consistently been friendly and helpful without pretense - how refreshing!
The penthouse rooms are quite awesome but we have stayed in the more intimate queens as well and have been very comfortable. A few highlights to the amenities include a mini fridge for you to stock at your convenience (you'll want a few cold waters to rehydrate after a night on the town!), cd player with a few authentic New Orleans based artist's cd's to enjoy (or purchase), and Aveda bath and shower products.
The tapas restaurant 'Rambala' downstairs looks like a happening spot for dinner, breakfast is also served 7 - 10.
Things are always tidy and the beds and pillows are quite comfy... good thing as you will want to be well rested for a traditional New Orleans jazz brunch come Sunday morning!

Stayed July 2009, traveled as a couple

We are frequent travelers to New Orleans and have stayed at many hotels in the city. The International House is our absolute favorite place to stay in New Orleans. We love the smoke free environment and the fact that their bar is also smoke free. The Loa Bar is very chic and a great place to enjoy a drink on the comfy sofas and watch the views from the large windows that look out onto Camp Street. The hotels location is another reason we like it so much. It's close enough to the French Quarter to walk anywhere we want to go but far enough from it to be able to enjoy some quiet time as well. We will definitely be back!

I stayed at the IH for a conference.

Rooms are ok, but not extraordinarily spacious or hip. Lighting in the whole hotel is quite dim - but I knew this before booking, and had no problems with it.

The bar is nice but not a hotspot in the evening. The hotel lacks an outdoor facility, like a roof-terrace, which would be a cool location for the bar.

When I arrived the hotel didn't have my reservation, so I was assigned to a room without window (!). However, after the first night I was moved without any discussion to another room.

The hotel features free wireless LAN.

I cannot say anything especially bad or good about the hotel. My stay was ok, but I am not sure I would return to this place.

We stayed for one night in July 2009. Our room was upgraded from a queen to a king. We got a great rate online, os to be upgraded mdae it even better! Room was small, but very nicely decorated. Smallish rooms are to be expected in old builidings such as those in New Orleans. Lobby has a great feel. Very attentive doormen. The room was bright & airy. Beautiful modern fixtures. No tub in our bath, but there was a great shower. Front desk personell were very nice. One bartender had a serious attitude, but the others were friendly enough. Nice bar w/ posh surroundings. Would stay again.

When i entered the International house, i was really impressed. I had in mind that it was really small. My first thought was wow!" this is BIG! " The valet cordially welcomed us into this elegant decor. The front desk representative made sure we were well taken care of. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The location was PERFECT! Just close enough from the french Quarter but not in the middle of the craziness...!
The bar was Great! They had the best Bloody Mary! And of-course the bartenders took good care of us! Overall, i am writing this review because i am totally going BACK!
