Editorial review:

A luxury boutique hotel Soniat House which compromises of three 1830s townhouses, located in the residential French Quarter which are full of refinement and sophistication. There are beautiful flowers everywhere, the rooms are charming (some even have balconies overlooking Chartres Street) and are decorated in gorgeous period furnishings and stocked with Frette linens, while the proprietors also own an adjacent antique shop. Expect to be treated like royalty.
