I don't normally write reviews. As an event planner, I travel a lot and tend to see too many negative things. But as I leave Suite 38 of the Soniat House in the morning, I just couldn't resist. It's just a little jewel tucked away...More

We really enjoyed our stay at Soniat House. We also used the "midweek special" for a great room in the main part of the hotel. We loved the courtyard area, which was a wonderful oasis even when the temperatures throughout the city were blazing. It...More

Great review. Thank you. Congratulations on finding the mid-week special. Not only are the prices better but as you undoubtedly found out restaurants, museums, stores are all less crowded and much more enjoyable. Come back soon.

We couldn’t bring bikes into our room. Enjoyable stay but we won’t book again because of the bicycle policy. I don’t understand why we couldn’t bring up our bikes or why they couldn’t figure out some other way of keeping them safe. Lesson learned. That...More

Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
