We came to NOLA to get married and stayed at the Olivier House a week before the wedding and then a few days after. We needed a place that we could have people over if need be during this time of final planning. It was awesome and just what we were hoping for! As some of the other reviews say, if you are looking for a traditional cookie cutter hotel, this is not the place for you! There is nothing cookie cutter about this place. From the time you walk in the door, you will be taken by the antique pieces that decorate the efficient foyer. A staff person will greet with a warm hello at the front desk, and I do mean an old style desk and chair, where the hotel ledger is still written by hand in a big ledger book. Our room was 112 and it is fantastically different. It has a loft balcony where there is a a king sized bed and one bath with a shower and then another bath with a deep tub on the main floor. The main floor also has a little kitchenette area with a microwave, mini fridge, toaster, sink area, and some dishes (as does all the rooms). Also a table with 4 chairs, an easy chair and a sofa sleeper. Each room in this hotel built in the 1800's is different. The hospitality and service is excellent. Jon, Chris, the owner Bobby, and his sweet niece whose name escapes me were all very accommodating. My husband surprised me with roses, champagne, and fresh strawberries lite by candlelight, all arranged while we were at our wedding! As an added NOLA bonus, this room had a fountain, and huge tropical plants that great you upon entering. It has it's own porch and opens up to the inner courtyard which is cozy. They do have a pool but the water appeared murky....not sure what was going on with that. If you're looking for southern hospitality without the frills... This is the place for you...as long as you don't care that the towels and sheets may not match!
