Expert Review

Discreetly hidden behind a tall gate, the Soniat House offers all the Southern elegance you could imagine in a New Orleans hotel. Built around private gardens with dribbling fountains, the hotel is grand and old-fashioned like a classic Creole home. The two 19th-century townhouses that comprise the hotel boast original spiral stairs, balconies, and patios. Between the two are 33 distinctly different rooms – 31 regular rooms in the main house and 12 suites across the street. The suites are a bit more splendid, with high ceilings, large bathrooms, and Jacuzzi tubs. All are filled with antique furnishings, full-size mirrors, Egyptian cottons by Frette, and plush European fabrics, plus modern amenities like data ports, voicemail, and two phones. Unique touches like antique books and candelabras add to the Old World charm.
