We stayed at the Cornstalk for one night to celebrate our engagement. The owner Louis was super nice, and actually upgraded us to a better room (no charge) since it was a special occasion! The room was beautiful, although our original room downstairs was just as beautiful. It was so pretty, and I was so glad we didn't stay at a conventional hotel in New Orleans (which I never have a good experience with). Everything seemed to be recently updated, and everything in the bathroom seemed fresh and brand new. The bed was super comfy as well. And right after we got to our room Louis knocked on the door and served us a pitcher of ice water and asked if we needed anything else.
We were in decent walking distance from everything, as we walked to Nola for dinner that night and Cafe du Monde for breakfast the next morning. We came back to the Cornstalk and ate our Beignets on the cute little patio off the upstairs hallway. The location was especially nice because we were that close and yet I didn't hear a sound all night and slept like a baby.
The Cornstalk must be a big deal, because all of the carriage tours people were taking would stop in front of the building to take pictures of it. So we felt pretty important :)
I highly recommend the Cornstalk due to the friendly staff (as Louis and the maid service were all personal and greeted us with a smile every time), cute rooms, and classic charm.
P.S. I think the negative reviews below were before the current staff took over, which explains a lot.

Brilliant crystal chandeliers, antique mirrors and furnishings adorn the entrance hall, beautifully set off by high vaulted ceilings. The rosette scrolls, cherubs, medallions, stained-glass windows, fireplaces and canopy beds are all relics of a Louisiana plantation home. We are in the heart of the Vieux Carre' (French Quarter), with the sights, the sounds, the gourmet food and night life of old New Orleans. ... more less
