St. Vincent's Guest House

Reviewed 30 October 2017

While the staff at the front desk was so kind and helpful, it was definitely not a place to stay for those that don't travel a lot, aren't cool with hostels, or germaphobes. The pics on the website are misleading and it was very much the bare minimum. if you are used to chain hotels, this is not for you. Also, too far from the Quarter to make the most of your stay.

The worst thing was the bed - as I was in the middle of a camping trip I used my stuff and slept on. Everything else was great. About a 15/20 min walk from the centre. The garden district also has good restaurants as well.

There is a fridge in the room also

I stayed for 2 nights with my friend as visitors from Florida and I had such an awesome stay! The 2 woman working the overnight shift on Sept 28-29 were amazing. They were more than just hotel employees. I can honestly say I have 2 new friends when I visit New Orleans again. They were so kind and welcoming and told me and my friend stories of New Orleans and made us feel welcome. I will absolutely visit this hotel EVERY time I visit New Orleans. I can also add that there are definitely spirits in the hotel, but nothing negative. This was a very pleasant stay.

Piece of garbage! My parents were told that they have to pay before they can see the room. Completely disgusting. Dirty toilet with urine and hair , bathtub looks like it was never been cleaned . Furniture falling about. When I called for my parents to complain they seen nothing wrong with it and then he hung up on me.

You will love this place is you have an appreciation for the strange and historical. St.Vincent's posses very friendly live in tenants, & employees whom are extremely helpful and friendly. We brought our own food stored some stuff in the communal kitchen & made an awesome dinner while staying in. They were in the middle of some renovations to the kitchen while we were there. Greatly enjoyed our stay, & the pool daily, within the centre of a court yard in the center. Would definitely visit again in a heart beat.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
St. Vincent Guest House is Under New Management!!! As of December 1, 2013 the guest house will be operated under a new management team that is dedicated to improving both the aesthetics and overall condition of the entire establishment. Steps are being taken to bring this beautiful and historical building to its fullest potential and offer our guests a wonderful experience and comfortable stay. St. Vincent's is not a full service hotel, it is more of hostel/quaint budget hotel that is both economical and located in one of the best areas in the city of New Orleans (the Lower Garden District). First opened in 1861 as a orphanage, the building has a distinct and colorful history that is worth exploring. The lobby is adorned with photos that reflect the history and show the building's usage over the last 100+ years. Each room has an individual decor and design scape that will make you feel as though you are walking into an era of Nola history gone by... The grounds are well kept and offer several areas for outdoor seating for morning coffee, an evening cigar or just great conversations... Our staff have been trained and are dedicated to providing each guest with the highest level of customer services with courtesy and a smile. Although there are not a great deal of amenities available, every guest will find that the Guest House offers a tremendous value for the price. We have both private sleeping rooms as well as dormitories available. There have been several negative reviews that have been posted in the past and those reviews have been duly noted and taken into consideration for action as we move towards improvements... Likewise, there have been several positive reviews from guests who have enjoyed their stay and the experience at the Guest House; and for that we are thankful! We look forward to this new era at St. Vincent's and welcome each and every guest with open arms... ... more   less
