We loved loved loved The Southern Hotel! We were there for my nephew's wedding. It is a quaint little place built in 1907. The rooms were clean. The staff were attentive and accommodating. They even sent Flowers to my sister's room when she broke her arm while jogging.

This is a beautiful hotel and i suspect a lovely place to stay anytime, but I was there through Hurricane Ida and I cannot emphasize how much the staff went above and beyond to take care of us. Spectacular hospitality in trying circumstances.

Located in the heart of the old city, within walking distance to many restaurants, bars, boutiques, antique shopping etc... Very pretty hotel, attentive staff, easy off street parking n/c. Quaint bar near lobby, & conversation setting areas all around. We stayed in a suite in main bldg. #217 PROs: separate living room w/tv, coffee maker, fridge, micro, dining table. Comfortable bed and linens. Large bath, soaking tub, closet w/safe. CONs Very Loud traffic noise!! No makeup mirror, No tv in bedroom. Needs thick drapes to keep light from filtering in & to help with traffic noise.

Second time here and just as wonderful! Comfy beds with great bed linens, excellent shower, VERY CLEAN, friendly staff and everyone greets you ! But what sets this hotel apart from most is the excellent restaurant, and bar. Competent, knowledgeable wait staff, great wine menu, fresh well seasoned foods, lovely open dining space....even breakfast here is delicious. I like a smaller menu because everything on the menu is well made. So worth staying in this lovely art filled hotel!
