International House Hotel
Ranked #74 of 166 Hotels in New Orleans
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 January 2012

We were lucky to get a hotel room the week of the BCS Championship. The International House is not in the French Quarter, but a very walkable few blocks away. It was also convenient to the casino, superdome, and convention center. We paid about 3-4x the going rate because New Orleans hotels were all charging a premium that weekend.
The room was very basic -- 2 queen beds a dresser and small closet. The bath was sufficient, but also rather small. There was no room safe, mini-bar, ice machine or vending machines. I consider those pretty standard these days. The front desk staff were nice, but seemed flustered at times especially with the hotel safe.
The bar was okay. The attached restaurant was tapas and before we were served 2 other tables walked out because they had not been waited on. The food was pretty good and we felt lucky to get any.
Our major complaint was this incredibly loud noise every hour or so 24 hours a day. At first we thought it was a car screeching its brakes on the street outside the hotel. After about 15 times we realized it must have been an a/c or heating unit. I cannot adequately describe how ridiculously loud it was. We would have done something in a normal situation, but the entire town was full so we just dealt with it.
As a value hotel, I would say this is an okay and convenient place to stay. I do not consider this a luxury hotel.

This hotel is in a great location. We were a short walk to 80% of the highlights of the city. The only place that was further was the Garden District. The street car to get you there was a short block away. The staff was very helpfull.If you need to get good sleep, choose the"Rock Star Room" no noise. Very dark. Compfy beds. The best sleep we had in a very long time. Chic decor. Everyone looks great in candel light. We plan on retuning to the International House on our next tip to Nola.

I stayed here in August for a weekend trip with friends. We loved the hotel! The place is cool, the service good, and the location was great. The lobby bar was fun and usually had a good crowd. It was a short walk to the French quarter, so it was a perfect place to stay and explore. We also chose to do a haunted history ghost tour. I don't remember the name of the tour, but it starts just outside Marie Laveau's House of Voodoo (cool place to check out). Any tour operator can tell you which one it was. It ended up being the highlight of our trip. I also highly recommend the Coffee Pot for breakfast. We went there twice it was so good! Can't wait to go back.

Extremely helpful staff, discrete and helpful. Lobby is very classy. Concierge Stephanie directed us to great restaurants and sites. ( Don't miss Ogden museum). Rooms spacious and understated. Best of all a tv-less bar and atmosphere.

I was initially "forced" to stay in a major hotel chain for a conference - but as soon as I found out that International House was just around the corner, I moved! Very cool lobby, nicely decorated rooms, but the outstanding feature of this hotel is the level of personal service! From the front door, to the frond desk, to anywhere else in the hotel - it seems they cannot do enough to make sure your stay is everything you want it to be.

We had a wonderful experience at The International House. It's well located in the business/warehouse district, just a short walk away from the French Quarter.

The decor is chic and trendy and clean. The Loa bar is swanky and cool, and beautifully candle-lit at night. The bartenders were always friendly and willing to make the more complicated drinks with no complaint. I didn't have dinner in the restaurant, but the breakfast buffet was FANTASTIC and way above and beyond for a hotel. *Be sure to add the breakfast plan to your room before you arrive and it will be cheaper ($10 per room per day, as I recall—and well worth it).

The rooms were quiet with the exception of traffic honking at the adjacent parking garage, which only occurred during the day (while we napped through the afternoon heat).

The staff was always friendly and offered some great tips on local festivals and events and places to eat.

I would stay with them again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: *Add the breakfast plan before arrival.
