Lovely hotel just in the Garden District, so quiet. Only one block to the St Charles streetcar line, bus lines also close by. Good restaurants with easy walking distance, and the access to public transportation put the city within reach without having to drive and park. All the staff were exceptionally friendly, helpful and welcoming.

It's hard to find anything wrong with this hotel. The location for us was perfect and the hotel exceeded every expectation. I wish Rochelle could be replicated so that everyone could experience the level of customer service she provides. The attention to detail at this hotel was phenomenal! It's quiet. The bedding and pillows were incredibly comfortable. The coffee service in the morning and the cocktails you could buy in the afternoon/evening hit the spot. The vibe at this hotel is unmatched and we've been to New Orleans many times. We will likely only stay at the Henry Howard Hotel from now on though. Thank you for making it such a magical experience!

This hotel is a GEM!! I don’t know why I’ve never stayed here or knew about it, but please stay here anytime you come to Nola! It’s small and beautiful…with so much character. The service is impeccable - all the way down to the chocolates and makeup wipes on your pillow each night with turn down service. The coffee and cocktails are delicious - and the monkey bread we had in the morning hit the spot. All of the staff was awesome, but Bruce is our absolute favorite human now. He is not only a great bar tender, he tells the best historical stories of New Orleans. It’s the little things, even being willing to hold our ice cream pints in the freezer for us till after dinner. He then brought them out on a tray with spoons for us to eat together in the lobby. (Get the ice cream at The Rabbit’s Foot across the street, you won’t regret it.) Thank you, HHH and Bruce for the best few days. I will stay here anytime I can from now on.

One of the best hotels in the best neighborhood in NOLA! The historic charm and warmth of the staff at The Henry Howard is just the start! The meticulously and tastefully restored Henry Howard Hotel also boasts a beautiful front room, evening cocktails and amazing hotel only events such as free private concerts & receptions with internationally renowned New Orleans musicians. Need help with finding a place to eat or go? The staff offers suggestions and assists in reservations like a 4 star hotel! The Henry Howard is one block off St. Charles street car line and easy tree-lined strolling to Magazine Street, numerous and local eateries such as The Commander's Palace, Shaya, The Rum House, Atchalchafalaya and Surrey's Juice Bar. The rooms are beautifully decorated with restrained detail and a whimsical nod to the musical history of the town. The beds and linens are luxuriously soft. If the free continental breakfast is not enough- there is The Rabbit's Foot market across the street sells coffee, breakfast and lunch items as well as a great variety of snacks.

The Henry Howard Hotel is an Oasis on top of an Oasis. New Orleans is my favorite getaway city in the US and after a crazy fun romp through the city it’s so nice to come back to this comfortable, quiet and romantic spot. The staff is incredible and the rooms are magnificent. Around the block from the trolley and right in the heart of the Garden district. Enjoy!

What an amazing place to celebrate something special! The Henry Howard Hotel went out of their way to make us feel special. We stayed in the Penthouse which was spacious, comfortable and stylish. The staff were very friendly, warm and welcoming - no ask was too big and no detail too small. The bar area was beautiful. We spent a few hours drinking, talking and laughing with friends while watching the golden afternoon light filter in through the large windows. Just a great atmosphere. The location was also incredible with great shopping, restaurants and cafes all within a short walk through the historical Garden District. AND, if you want to spend a little more time getting to the great destinations surrounding the hotel, do yourself a favor and get a copy of the hotel's Walk The Garden District's Tour Booklet which is full of amazing information and beautiful hand-drawn illustrations of architecturally significant properties in the area. Great hotel, great stay - what more could we ask for!

We stayed in February, celebrating a friend’s birthday. Our room was gorgeous and spacious, the staff was wonderful, and the bar was stocked. Perfect location in a stunning part of the city that is a short cab ride to the French Quarter, although I would have been happy to explore the neighborhood more. I highly recommend the “Walk the Garden District” tour booklet from the hotel - it was a perfect way to get to know this picturesque area and we were able to explore with a Bloody Mary in hand! Special shout out to Rochelle who took amazing care of us. Only downside was our weekend was too short. Looking forward to staying here again soon!

Staying at the Henry Howard in New Orleans is like staying in a private mansion. In the lower garden district, it is not only charming, but surrounded by some of the most stunning homes in the area. The hospitality of the staff could not have been better. The guests engage with each other in the large lounge where Brian serves up some of the best cocktails. Hanging with the charming hospitable Brian was a highlight of our trip. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. It has tasteful rooms and common areas. Sitting out on a rocker on the front porch while sipping a drink, is the perfect New Orleans experience.

We stayed in a royal king room. Our room was perfection. The mattress was comfortable, the decor on point, and it had everything we could think of! The hotel staff was beyond friendly as well as helpful. The location was amazing! We thought we would be missing out by not being at the French Quarter and it was quite the opposite. When we wanted to visit the quarter it was a quick Uber but we enjoyed the restaurants and scene of the Garden District. I really enjoyed exploring this area of New Orleans. We felt like family at the Henry Howard and will def be returning. A+++++
