Reviewed 23 June 2012

Booked hotel because a friend reccommeded it. So glad we did. Stayed two nights to celebrate our 7th anniversary. Lobby was artsy and smelled so good!! We stayed in an Apple King room. Loved the simple style of the room, high ceilings, and flat screen tv. The bathroom was standard size...but the tub was oversized. :) The location was great...close to the quarter and tons of restaurants and shops.. We will definitely be back.

We recently spent three nights at this hotel and enjoyed it very much. It has a great location, close to the French Quarter but not in it. Being in the French Quarter may be a tad bit more convenient but good luck sleeping! The hotel is tastefully appointed with some very nice touches and the room prices were quite reasonable. All in all, a very fine choice. PS Try Chuck's Bar just down the street for a late night drink with the locals.

This is a good boutique hotel. Staff helpful without being fawning, which can sometimes happen in America. Great location for the French Quarter or anything else you want to do in NOLA. Rooms are funky without being overdone. Bathrooms clean. Rooms are quiet to a point but could benefit from double glazing. A room safe would be good. All in all, it helped to make my NOLA stay memorable.

As a local and as someone who has stayed at the International House on several occasions. I feel it's one of the best hotels we have in the area. The Lobby and LOA bar are incredible. Rooms are clean, well sized and have a very appealing decor. Beds are huge and comfortable. I recommend it to anyone I know staying in the city. I also recommend it for people who don't want to deal with the mess and noise of the hotels in the Quarter. If you are in our city looking "for the New Orleans vibe" this is probably not the hotel for you, but if you are looking for a posh and comfortable stay this is the best.

My wife and I traveled to New Orleans late May 2012. This boutique hotel is perfectly located on the quiet side of Canal street just blocks from everything you want with very little of the noise. The hotel has a modern decor and an unique bar in the lobby where the bartenders pride themselves on mixing any number of drinks with ingredients you would never combine.

Upon our arrival we checked in with no issues and were taken quickly to our room. The room was clean, comfortable, and well appointed. For me the most important aspect of any hotel is the bed, and the International House did not disappoint. The King size bed was very comfortable, with high thread count sheets and nice full pillows. The bathroom was a large and covered in tile and granite. The shower was full size, but the shower head in our room was ready for replacement.

The location is fantastic. We were able to walk to many of the shops, restaurants, casino, and bars. We were on the third floor and experienced no noise issues during our entire stay.

The service was questionable. One more than one occasion we were unable to get the front desk to bring us ice, and when we came down to get it ourselves the attendant acted inconvenienced by our request. The majority of the staff appeared to be college age students who often seamed distracted or indifferent to customer service. While this wouldn't keep me from returning, it certainly was worth mentioning. Overall a nice hotel.

On a recent trip to New Orleans my husband and I stayed here for one night for our anniversary. The hotel decor is lovely, the lobby and bar being highlights, and all the fresh herbs and fruits on the bar smelt amazing! We were offered an upgrade from a panoramic corner king to a terrace room for an extra $10, which we took (though subsequently realised that we only saving $10 anyway!) and the room was really nice, the terrace was a bonus in the New Orleans heat. The staff however generally did not live up to the hotel's aspirations, the barman being possibly the rudest we have ever met. We were contemplating eating in the restaurant but it was completely empty and so we went elsewhere. Generally we got the perception that everyone is just taking the place a little too seriously and trying to be too cool, at the expense of warm, friendly service (except the bellman who was nice) and, given the price, we would not stay here again. Could be great if the staff were told to relax and learn some customer service!

My husband and I have stayed at the International House at least 8 times, both before and after Katrina. Over the years we have tried the Windsor Court and the Loew's, but have concluded that the International House is the best hotel for us in New Orleans. The location is superb - an easy short walk to the French Quarter, but outside the craziness and noise.The lobby is fabulous. It's just the right mix of funky and luxurious without being fussy. It has character. We usually stay in a corner room on an upper floor. The rooms are lovely and understated, but do not feel sterile. The black and white photos of musicians on the walls and the decor say "New Orleans". The service can sometimes be a bit casual, but it is always friendly. There's even a more than adequate fitness room. Highly recommend.
