10/10 Exceptional

Stayed 4 nights here with my husband in November 2020... I got the recommendation from Andrew Harper. It was such a wonderful experience.. feel like home..charming townhouse.. great location with walking distance to everywhere.. staff is friendly, attentive and helpful... the manager got us upgraded to suite #16 is facing the garden. We requested breakfast in the garden and It was just fabulous. The bed is clean and comfortable, the bathroom updated and clean. The place is so unique and has NoLa vibes. They handle well for Covid 19 pandemic with mask and everything. we even got an option to do non contact express check out. I would go back to stay in this charming house again.

The property took you back in time. The location is convenient on the quieter side of the French quarter. Service was outstanding. Because it is an old building, the ceilings and walls don’t offer a lot of privacy. It was a unique experience without a doubt.

8/10 Very good

The staff was excellent and very accommodating. A special about out to Irvin for arranging highly desirable dinner reservations last minute. The location is excellent; however, there are a few downsides. You should definitely request (and pay for) and inner room. Our room had street noise even with the thick shutters that faced the street. Also, our mattress and pillows were surprisingly uncomfortable for this price point.

We had a wonderful stay at Soniat House, Cornell was our first contact when we arrived and he is wonderful! He always had a smile and eager to help with whatever you need. We had a room facing courtyard, which I would recommend, and it was quiet. My negative is that breakfast was not included but our overall stay was great!

6/10 Good

The initial room they provided was dark and poor. I needed to upgrade to get a better room. This was a difficult beginning to my stay. I don’t believe they can be trusted to provide the room quality I thought I had reserved.
