The Henry Howard hotel is a special place. The rooms are immaculate, the architectural details of the hotel are unmatched, and the customer service of staff was as good as it gets. My only comment is to be mindful that the hotel is a very old, historic home. It’s perfect for couples or families that want to walk the Garden District. It wouldn’t be appropriate to blast bass in your room or come in loud from the quarter. The hotel was full during my stay, and I had a great time!

Within walking distance of the magnificent Magazine Street for shopping, this hotel is everything you could want and more. The extraordinary beauty, charm, and elegance of this hotel is surprisingly surpassed by the incredible hospitality of the staff. There are plenty of things that make this place special, such as the uniqueness of each room; and the antique furnishings and horns, but it's the staff that make this place shine. I was greeted by Dewan at the door who helped me with my luggage, showed me to my room, got ice for my champagne bucket, and called for a taxi to take me to a late dinner. And then I met Brian - the keeper of all things - the bar, the secrets. He was amazingly friendly and helpful. It's no wonder why the guests linger for hours in the parlor while he pours drinks for everyone and regales guests with his extensive knowledge of the city; where to go for all the best food and entertainment. Brian is second to none in hotel management and hospitality. The hotel is sparkly clean and the beds and linens are incredibly comfortable. I will definitely be back; I just hope I can stay longer than a few days next time.

We ended up here because the hotel we reserved was closed and did not tell us. We stopped in to take a look at a few places and ended up choosing the Henry Howard. Our stay exceeded our expectations, Super clean and well maintained, nice rooms. Enjoyable “sitting room”/common area. Great staff.
