The place is within walking distance of just about everything the Quarter has to offer, the room was nice and did have a "gallery" view of the street. Nothing like relaxing with wine in hand on the "terrace".

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

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
