Destination Guide

New Orleans

Unknown Image

The historic pastel city on the bayou is a place where the tropics meets the American South, where Creole meets Cajun, Haitian meets African, and everyone eats, drinks and dances. The city is teeming with refreshing new energy, and is a destination infused with a French joie de vivre.

Exterior View - Soniat House, New Orleans, American South

Soniat House

Tucked away on a quiet street in the back of the French Quarter, Soniat House is an unassuming oasis in the heart of the city. The boutique property is comprised of three small townhouses of beautifully restored Creole Cottages. Upon entry through the gates, guests proceed down a candlelit, stone carriageway into a courtyard—to what feels like the essence of old New Orleans.

The property is furnished with exquisite antiques that help create a classic atmosphere of grandeur. Each of the 31 rooms are somewhat different and while some are spacious and light, others can feel slightly cramped with old-fashioned, small bathrooms. (Indagare members can contact our bookings team for assistance on picking the right room.) The best rooms and suites are located along the street and have private balconies and views of the French Quarter.

The hotel was opened in 1984 by Frances and Rodney Smith, antiques dealers from the area who have taken care to preserve a quiet old world atmosphere while maintaining high standards of service and personal attention. The hotel provides a definite home-away-from-home feeling; one guest checked in soon after Hurricane Katrina and has yet to leave.

While there is no hotel restaurant (the case for many small New Orleans properties), a delicious breakfast of café au lait and baked-to-order Southern biscuits with jam is served in-room or in the garden courtyard.
