“Love This Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

We always stay here and love it a wonderful place. This time we stayed in the honeymoon suite room 216. Has a private balcony, with a table and chairs, planters with beautiful flowers over looking Toulouse St, and Dauphine St. Or room was lovely a king size bed, living room with a large bath room with nice big tub, but no shower but is worth it even if there is no shower. One is going to be installed at a later date. It is 1/4 a block off Bourbon St. it is quite so you can sleep in if you want to. If you want to stay close to Bourbon St this is the place to stay. Close to every thing. Have 3 courtyards with a tropical feel, there is even a Grape Fruit tree in one of the courtyards. We have been staying here for 3 years, and will always stay here. The people at the front desk are very helpful. John recommend the Haunted History Tour it was great. Nichole helped us book our next stay so we booked the Cottage that has a private courtyard with the grape fruit tree. They are pet friendly my dog "Tibby" enjoyed it. Also have a pool very nice and cool after a day of walking a great way to cool off. When you stay here it is like stepping back in time. Every room is different if you ask they'll show you some of the other rooms. The reason we booked the cottage for or next to visits. Is it has a kitchen so we can cook in stead of going out to eat a lot. It is a one bedroom, one bathroom, with a living room and dinning room. Yes Tibby is going with us. Never will stay ant where else as long as this place is open. "I hope they never close or change owners Bobby is the manager is there every time we visit. The best please to stay.

We had a suite w 2 bedrooms little living-room and a little patio w/ table an umbrella . Such a cozy spot. My friends I went w have stayed there twice already, this was my first and their 3rd...they love it that much. Staff is absolutely amazingly helpful. Love the place...very home feeling. Would definitely recommend the Olivier House to anyone.

May 17-19, 2013: The front entrance w/ the lady in the pink dress told my 'GPS' we had arrived at our destination. Me and two girl friends had planned this Girls Weekend Trip to Bourbon Street (and ghost hunt) for 5 months! We were not disappointed. We checked into Rm 106 just off the courtyard. AWESOME! If you are looking for the same ole' same ole' hotel go elsewhere! This place has the uniqueness of Old World Charm. Room updated w/ Sofa Sleeper, mini frig, m/wave, coffee pot, dinette table setting 4, 3 beds ( no problem with sheets), 2 bathrooms (no problems with towels and more were provided with out asking! TX housekeeping) and Bathrooms were recently updated-Nice Job Olivier House. The stair case (sort a slim) leading up the loft where 2 beds were was a nice addition to the room. It gives nice privacy with flat screen TV's in the loft/bedroom, sitting area and in the master bedroom. Had a couple of pictures hanging (a bad comment was made by someone before, but we didn't spend must time in our room with BOURBON STREET 1/2 BLOCK WAY AND OUR FEET WERE READY TO HIT THE ROAD). The courtyard just outside our room was lovely and quiet for it being just a few yards from the hustle and bustle of Bourbon Street-we sat in the late evening hours, drank wine and girl talked with lots of laughter!! Sorry if we woke anyone. The off site parking was reasonable in price, gentleman who checked us in said anytime we needed to go to the car, Just Ask-loved I didn't have to "public park" my car. Only problem with room: 12 cup coffee maker with coffee packs that make 4 cups-not good with three coffee-a-hol-ics. Problem solved :) The nice lady working the front desk gave me packs of coffee (12 cup volume) from their coffee room where the sign says "Help yourself"- She did, so we did and problem resolved! Thanks Olivier House on Toulouse Street. Gail, Celia & Charlotte (aka -Three Amiga's) had a wonderful time in The French Quarter and left with many fun memories. Saw no ghosts though :( ....bummer :)

We got to the corner of Toulouse and Dauphine in a light drizzle and were glad to find the door to the Olivier House Hotel. We didn't know what to expect, but were thrilled with our experience. Room 211 was perfect - a small kitchen and living room downstairs and a wonderful king-sized bed in the loft upstairs. The table on the shared-balcony looking out at the pool was always available when we were and protected while the rain fell. It was an easy walk to excellent restaurants and the craziness of the NO streets (so glad the rain stopped), but it was always wonderful to come back to the serene quiet of the Olivier House...As others have noted - not the Hilton or Sheraton - but why would you want that in the French Quarter? Romantic and simply perfect for us!

If you are looking for a big fancy hotel go elsewhere. If you are looking for true New Orleans character in the middle of the French Quarter, take a chance on this one. The beautiful, unique old hotel has charm. The only problem we had was a thermostat on the fourth floor that was controlled in the hallway and not each room. One room on the hall kept lowering the temp that the other 3 rooms thought to be way too cold! Other than that 1 minor issue, the hotel was great and perfect for our Jazz Fest experience.

This place is amazing! My friend and I brought our beaus here for jazz fest and to celebrate our 30th birthdays. We were not too sure what to expect, but I can say without a doubt that this hotel far exceeded any expectation we could have had. first, the location is PERFECT!! Right in the heart of the French Quarter, but far enough away that you feel like you're in your own lil' world. The rooms are so unique and quaint! It is an old hotel, so people who cry and moan about the "musty" smell or the somewhat dilapidated look, should go stay somewhere else with less character! Bobby was an incredible host and upgraded both couples for no additional charge the second night we were there! Incredible customer service, friendly staff and clean, cozy rooms. I won't stay anywhere else!!

If you come to NO to enjoy party-like atmosphere, but still want to have quiet place to rest - this is the place. 1/2 block to craziness of Bourbon St, but on quiet street with very quiet courtyard. Rooms are big, comfortable beds, renovated bathrooms, so we were very comfortable. But it is definitely not faceless Holiday Inn - very unique place, with character. We like it very much!
