The Henry Howard was the perfect place for my out of town family to stay during my wedding. My husband’s family stayed there as well and we had the place to ourselves after booking almost all of the rooms available. The style is New Orleans traditional and I love the antique furniture throughout the hotel. The staff jumped into action when city restrictions changed at the last minute and affected our wedding plans. I can’t thank Suzanne enough for being so flexible and helping us adapt our plans so that the whole day wasn’t ruined. Brian was also amazing at accommodating all of our family’s requests and was the best bartender. My husband and I will definitely make the Henry Howard our go-to staycation spot and will recommend to all out of town guests. We have such wonderful memories of our stay. It will forever hold a special place in our hearts as such an integral part of our wedding weekend.

We visited this hotel in January for a family wedding. The hotel was so clean and welcoming that we felt right at home. The staff was professional, courteous and so accommodating when last minute changes occurred with the wedding. Brian and Beth went above and beyond to make sure our stay was enjoyable. Beth even went back to our room after we left to see if my daughter had left her videogame (which she ended up finding). We don't get to stay in hotels too often in NO since family lives there, but this is definitely one that I want to come back to and enjoy the walking tour and all the area has to offer. Thank you for helping make the weekend memorable for me and my family.

We had a wonderful weekend stay at the Henry Howard Hotel. This was our first stay at a hotel during the pandemic. The hotel was very meticulous with their precautions which put us at ease. More importantly the staff was warm and welcoming. The room was very clean with a very comfortable bed. We will definitely stay here again!

My girlfriend and I visited in September for a nice weekend away from the hustle and bustle of our Southern California lifestyle. We were more than impressed with the cleanliness of our accommodations, but what was more important to us was the friendly, caring, and attentive attitude of the staff. We had the pleasure of working with Cara as well as Suzanne, and we wanted to make it a point to mention their unprecedented attention to detail and positive attitudes. Cara made us feel like we were part of the local crowd, and had wonderful suggestions for romantic dinners and fun cocktail lounges. The accessibility of magazine street made for easy, stress free, and eventful nights. For our first time in NOLA we couldn’t have asked for a more picturesque getaway. We will definitely be back!

We went on girls celebration weekend and stayed at the Henry Howard Hotel in New Orleans. The property and accommodations are wonderful...but what made the weekend a truly cherished memory was the unbelievable staff that make you feel so comfortable and at home! They all do everything in their power to make you not want to leave...and to come back as soon as possible! Thank you to Suzanne, Brian, Brittaney, and Beth who treated us like old friends and made our weekend wonderful and smooth(especially during these challenging times). A++ to these amazing individuals.
