“Very nice place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

The accommodations and personnel were excellent. When I found we didn't have a fridge in our room, they allowed us to put our cheese and fruit in the employee's fridge. We felt very welcomed.

There is also no TV or radio in the room, but after a day out in town, we really didn't miss it. The only complaints I might have is the noise (even at night) because we were in the front room, and there was only one chair in the very large room. It would have been much more comfortable to have 2 chairs for 2 people because the only other place to sit was on the bed. The room was quite large and could have accommodated another wing chair.

Room Tip: The front room can be a bit noisy especially since the hotel is on several tour routes. The front p...

Spent the night here while on an overnight trip to New Orleans! What a charming place to stay! Beats the heck out of a regular hotel chain! The old house has so much character! The location is great too! Within walking distance to everything in the French Quarter! I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Elvis stayed in room 1. The Clintons stayed in room 2 while Bill was Governor. Wish I could have go...

It was a fantastic Stay-cation thanks to fabulous accommodations and service by the Cornstalk Hotel. The room was enormous and beautifully decorated. We felt like we the lords of our own manor. We received some fantastic advice from Suzy that led a day gallery shopping & menu tasting. We are already looking to book another night next month!

Room Tip: Ask for a room near the balcony so that you people watch!

After a long few weeks of hard work and not a lot of quality time together, my boyfriend and I decided to switch it up. We had always walked by the intricate Cornstalk fence with amazement. There is no other place like this in New Orleans! We made arrangements to stay 1 night. Upon arrival, we couldn't help but have smiles from ear to ear. It was as if we were entering our own plush, luxurious, welcoming abode. A short stroll up the stairs and we were there. We were surprised how every detail of history had been preserved. Needless to say we will be back. Suzy, the manager, had a contagious smile and handled everything before we needed to ask. Thanks so much Suzy!

We recently attended a family reunion at the Cornstalk Hotel. It was a beautiful Victorian Hotel with outstanding customer service. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. The staff was wonderful and very accommodating. The location is amazing and the parking was an issue. We enjoyed a few drinks on the balcony and loved the constant flow of people and tours around the area.

Room Tip: If you have difficulty with stairs, one should request a room downstairs. However, the upstairs was...

Loved it - felt like we stayed in a very comfortably appointed guest room in someone's gracious old mansion (which, in some ways, we were). Service was very hospitable, and the room and bath were impeccably clean. If you're looking for all of the facilities and conveniences you'd find in a large, top-end hotel or chain, look elsewhere. If you've accumulated way too many frequent traveler points - and room-service calories - over the decades and prefer strolling across the street for a gourmet restaurant or 1/2 block for a great café, then this is your place. If you're looking for bellmen and lots of staff swarming all over you, look elsewhere. If you want to feel like there are a handful of people who give you the sense of a very hospitable family looking to make your stay in their gracious (if tired) old home very enjoyable, then this is your place.

My daughter and I stayed at the Cornstalk Hotel and loved it. They actually are on hotels tonight.com! If you're not hip to the app. Download it! You get $ credits for referring friends and family. The staff was awesome, The vibe was very sweet. My only request would be that there was a small refrigerator to keep cold drinks and little snacks. The front desk did give us coffee vouchers for coffee/espresso in the morning front he coffee house on the corner.. which was very nice! I would stay there again anytime. Much fun!!! Super nice staff!!! Thank you Christina and Suzy!!

Room Tip: Depends on your needs. My room was large, shared with my daughter it was great!!! Comfy, clean!!
