Soniat House is the most acclaimed luxury boutique hotel in New Orleans’ French Quarter. In January 2003, Travel and Leisure once again named Soniat House “one of the best hotels in the world.”

The hotel was created twenty years ago by combining three historic Creole town-houses in the quiet residential section of the French Quarter. The remarkable renovation by Rodney and Frances Smith won every local award as well as national praise for its sensitive design and the striking taste of the guest rooms. Two of the houses were built in 1830 by Joseph Soniat, a plantation owner who needed a house in New Orleans when visiting with his large family. Just four years later his oldest son built an even larger house. The three have become one.

Soniat House offers 18 rooms and 12 suites. Fine antique books, lamps, and interesting objects are carefully arranged throughout the hotel making a trip to the Soniat House a unique experience.
