I'm often suspicious of breathless reviews, and Soniat House has plenty of them. But this is an unusual place that deserves all of the praise it receives. It's a charming property, very well-located in the French Quarter -- in a setting that's convenient, but well...More

I am so pleased that you were not disappointed by the Soniat House. It is not an easy atmosphere to maintain but it is the reviews that keep us trying.

Reviewed 10 July 2017

A beautiful courtyard, complete with a resident cat (very friendly), and a gracious yet unobtrusive staff. The location is great: far enough from the noise but close enough that you can get to great restaurants. The balconies overlook Chartres and the convent and church.

Claire ( the cat ) really runs the hotel. She does a pretty good job of welcoming the guests to her house. Thank you for your review.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
