Many head to New Orleans for the food, others for the nightlife, but we always head to this sweet southern city for its romance. For a lover’s getaway to New Orleans, we chose to stay at The Soniat House, a member of the Small Luxury Hotels. With its classic New Orleans brick façade, ornate cast-iron balconies, and luxurious antique interiors, the 19th century charm of the Soniat House transported us to traditional times in New Orleans. In a world of big brand names and chain hotels in the French Quarter, the authenticity, intimacy, and attention to detail of The Soniat House stands out makes it stand out as the premier hotel for romantics in New Orleans.



The Soniat House is nicely nestled in the fabulous French Quarter of New Orleans. the ideal location for travelers that want to be close to the action. The hotel is within walking distance to the best beignets in the world at Café Du Monde, the legendary jazz on Frenchmen Street, and the renowned nightlife on Bourbon Street. Unlike other New Orleans hotels, The Soniat House has a prime spot as a French Quarter hotel, but this romantic respite is far enough from the bibulous cacophony of the party crowds in New Orleans.



We had the honor of staying in the Grand Suite, a premier room at the Soniat House. With its second story location, high ceilings, heavenly bed, dual en-suite bathrooms, and magnificent balcony overlooking the French Quarter, The Soniat House Grand Suite boasts the best room in all of the Big Easy.

Each room has the option to have room service breakfast anytime of the day. For guests staying in the Grand Suite or a suite with a balcony, they can choose to enjoy their breakfast while people watching on their veranda.



The Soniat House has free WiFi throughout the property, Molton Brown bath products (my favorite!), free use of the New Orleans Athletic Club, an antique shop, courtyard, and an honor bar. The honor bar is filled with high-end liquors, beer, and wine for you to enjoy before heading out on the town. The Soniat House also offers all-day breakfast room service. Guests can enjoy their room service from the comfort of their balcony while they nosh on buttermilk biscuits.



The Soniat House is ideal for a lover’s retreat, girlfriend getaway, or family vacation. This boutique hotel provides a quiet, intimate respite from the hustle and bustle of New Orleans, while still offering a prime location for visitors to explore.
