I have stayed at the Olivier House many times over the years but most recently was for 8 days over Halloween in October (a late review I know but...better late...). I have always had the greatest experiences while staying here, especially this last trip. All of my friends backed out for one reason or another; some had reasons out of their control, others, let's say are no longer friends. So, I am never one to miss returning to NOLA so I went solo. When I arrived Bobby was incredibly accommodating to my situation and helped me in every way possible. They always checked in with me on how I was doing. Bobby and Deborah and the entire staff have always went above and beyond to make me feel like I am a valued returning friend. I have stayed in most places in the quarter and this is the only one that I am committed to and refer all my friends to. That being said, my friends and I have personalities that match the style and funkiness of the Olivier House and it suits us perfectly. The rooms are large and are all different, the hotel itself is gorgeous and old New Orleans from and old world perspective. The location cannot be beat, center of the quarter, half-block off Bourbon St. and you can always walk Dauphine if you've had enough of Bourbon. There's a little market across the street so you can grab a cold one and hit the streets. It's close to everything including Deja Vu when you stumble back and need a late night snack! The pool and courtyards are beautiful and balcony rooms are wonderful to sit out on in the mornings and evenings. It has personality and character that sets it apart from most of the other places I've stayed.
If you require a brand new, ultra clean & shiny, cookie cutter hotel with a starbucks in it then I recommend you stay at one of the big hotel chains on Canal St.
To me, this is part of loving NOLA, a little run down but with true character including ghosts and music on every corner. I have stayed here during Halloweens, Mardi Gras' and various other times throughout the year and I will continue to do so. In fact, I'll be returning next month and I cannot wait.
