“nice but not extra-ordinary”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2009

I stayed at the IH for a conference.

Rooms are ok, but not extraordinarily spacious or hip. Lighting in the whole hotel is quite dim - but I knew this before booking, and had no problems with it.

The bar is nice but not a hotspot in the evening. The hotel lacks an outdoor facility, like a roof-terrace, which would be a cool location for the bar.

When I arrived the hotel didn't have my reservation, so I was assigned to a room without window (!). However, after the first night I was moved without any discussion to another room.

The hotel features free wireless LAN.

I cannot say anything especially bad or good about the hotel. My stay was ok, but I am not sure I would return to this place.

We stayed for one night in July 2009. Our room was upgraded from a queen to a king. We got a great rate online, os to be upgraded mdae it even better! Room was small, but very nicely decorated. Smallish rooms are to be expected in old builidings such as those in New Orleans. Lobby has a great feel. Very attentive doormen. The room was bright & airy. Beautiful modern fixtures. No tub in our bath, but there was a great shower. Front desk personell were very nice. One bartender had a serious attitude, but the others were friendly enough. Nice bar w/ posh surroundings. Would stay again.

When i entered the International house, i was really impressed. I had in mind that it was really small. My first thought was wow!" this is BIG! " The valet cordially welcomed us into this elegant decor. The front desk representative made sure we were well taken care of. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The location was PERFECT! Just close enough from the french Quarter but not in the middle of the craziness...!
The bar was Great! They had the best Bloody Mary! And of-course the bartenders took good care of us! Overall, i am writing this review because i am totally going BACK!

My husband and I stayed at the International House June 2009 to celebrate our 20th anniversary. We had booked the only room available at the time (A queen). Apon arriving we were very pleasantly surprised at the beautiful lobby and when checking in we were upgraded to the Penthouse floor. No-one even knew we where there celebrating our 20th anniversary!! What a present, it was beautiful! Very close to everthing but far enough away from all the noise. We did not hear any noise at night!! This was a great hotel and we would definately stay again.

My colleague and I had to travel to New Orleans over a city-wide convention. We booked very short-notice and were lucky to probably get the last two rooms at the International House.

What a lovely property. Only a few steps away from the French Quarter (which is wonderful as I prefer not having to sleep in the French Quarter) it has a great location as everything is within walking distance. It's a very stylish and chic hotel with large, well-appointed, very clean rooms (not very quiet though as many of them face a rather busy street). The hotel has a lot of soul and did a great job to create a hip atmosphere and adding the special touch of the South to it.

The South is known for its hospitality yet I was impressed by the friendleness and the service provided by the staff considering that the hotel was sold out.

The Loft 123 is almost across the street and the sister property of the International House. If you have a chance, try to get a room there. The rooms are very cool and huge. It's got a very urban feel and may not be everyone's taste but I wish we had something like that in NY.

Now, last but not least - check out the bar: it is a happening place
The restaurant La Rambla probably has the best croissants in the US and I would dare to say that they are better than most croissants in France.
