Soniat House Reviews
Mr & Mrs Smith have just returned from a stay at this Louisiana boutique hotel, and as soon as they've unpacked their antiques and feathery masks, a full account of their US luxury city break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick snapshot of Soniat House in New Orleans…
In a quiet stretch of the French Quarter, Soniat House is a counterpoint to the buzz of the nearby restaurants and bars. It’s close enough to the action, but has a built-in reprieve of two palm-dotted courtyards. This orange-hued, grass-green shuttered colonial building acts as a time machine. There’s antique furniture at every turn: holding books, showing off china, and housing the all-important liquor cabinet.
A long dark-tiled highway opens onto one of the courtyards. As you walk, check out the drawing room: a hotchpotch of original art (some on loan from the New Orleans Museum of Modern Art), chairs, rugs and lamps. The mismatched mix makes it feel like an inherited house.
Unwind in a white wicker rocking chair on the fan-cooled wrought-iron balcony, Sazerac – an old fashioned done Nola-style – in hand. This must be why New Orleans is called the Big Easy.
