Built in 1883 the mansion only has 20 rooms each uniquely decorated with Victorian furnishings or circa 1930. If you're looking for a mini bar, refrigerator or microwave you're not going to find it at The Columns. However, if you want to step back in time and marvel at the beautifully painted ceilings in the ball room, the mahogany bar/lounge, ceilings and original chandelier that still hangs there today you wouldn't regret your visit. The oversized staircase and stained glass window leads to rooms and a balcony. We ate a casual dinner on the balcony and watched the Margi Gras parade. The Columns has live music and seems to be the place to come and relax with friends on the large front porch. Everyone couldn't have been more friendly. Micaela our dinner server was a sweetheart and didn't forget 1 item we had ordered. The trolley runs in front of the hotel so getting up and down St Charles is quiet easy. There is only on street parking so once you've parked taking the trolley is the most time effective. Our room was in the front of the hotel overlooking St Charles street. It was quiet large, comfortable bed, shutters on the windows, wardrobe closet and fireplace (not sure if the fireplace worked) but added to the ambiance. The bathroom had a claw foot bathtub old fashioned but clean. Breakfast was included, seating in the dining room with breakfast items you selected from a menu. (No make your own waffles at The Columns. Enjoy your stay at this unique step-back in time hotel.
