We stayed here around Halloween so I think the prices were overinflated, but still the cheapest we could find in town while still staying safe and centrally located. This place ilooks pretty cool from the outside and has a good vibe if you're looking for a traditional NOLA style hotel without breaking the bank. Our room was basic but had... More

This hostel seen better days before. It must be renovated but it's not too expensive and my room was clean but very very old. No free WiFi. 20 dollar per week. Bus station in front of the hostel and streetcar and Walgreen 4 blocks away. Would I recommend it or stay a second time there. I don't think so

I fell in immediate and irrevocable love with St. Vincent's the moment I saw it from the outside! Then I stepped inside and found a charming and warm atmosphere with a SUPER friendly staff that made our stay there so pleasant. The rooms are basic, but who stays in their room while in New Orleans anyway? Highly recommended!

Spacious rooms in a historic place. New Orleans style of hospitality - a unique and very warm welcome (I was greeted by a guy with a parrot (!) called Margaret). My room was even decorated with beads. Nice location in the lower Garden District on Magazine str. Easy to find - the magnificent building immediately catches your attention on the... More

This place was the cheapest place available in New Orleans for our visit, and we were prepared having read reviews for it not to be great. The location was very handy but the cleanliness and general state of the room wasn't something I would choose to stay in again, I'd pay the extra little bit and go for a motel... More

The room was nothing fancy, but it had everything we needed. A major bonus was that it was quiet! We didn't hear any noise from the halls once we closed our doors. It was also clean and the shower had hot water and great pressure! The building itself is amazing (before you stay here make sure you look up the... More

First, if you want Hilton, Waldorf or Holiday Inn accommodations DO NOT stay at St. Vincent's Guest House. If you're traveling to New Orleans on a budget and you want a convenient place to stay in a nice area of New Orleans, then St. Vincent's Guest House is the place to stay. In the Garden District of New Orleans (a... More

I'd really like to give this place a zero but it won't let me. We arrived late last night. We stayed in room 4. It was nothing to write home about and it looked like it hadn't been spring cleaned in about 30 years but we weren't expecting great things, just a place to sleep for the night. We woke... More

Staying in Garden District

Neighbourhood Profile
Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
St. Vincent Guest House is Under New Management!!! As of December 1, 2013 The Guest House will be operated under a new management team that is dedicated to improving both the aesthetics and overall condition of the entire establishment. Steps are being taken to bring this beautiful and historical building to its fullest potential and offer our guests a wonderful experience and comfortable stay. St. Vincent's is not a full service hotel, it is more of hostel/quaint budget hotel that is both economical and located in one of the best areas in the City of New Orleans. (The Lower Garden District) First opened in 1861 as a orphanage; the building has a distinct and colorful history that is worth exploring. The lobby is adorned with photos that reflect the history and show the building's usage over the last 100+ years. Each room has an individual decor and design scape that will make you feel as though you are walking into an era of Nola history gone by... The grounds are well kept and offer several areas for outdoor seating for morning coffee, an evening cigar or just great conversations... Our staff have been trained and are dedicated to providing each guest with the highest level of customer services with courtesy and a smile. Although there are not a great deal of amenities available, every guest will find that the Guest House offers a tremendous value for the price. We have both private sleeping rooms as well as dormitories available. There have been several negative reviews that have been posted in the past and those reviews have been duly noted and taken into consideration for action as we move towards improvements... Likewise, there have been several positive reviews from guests who have enjoyed their stay and the experience at the Guest House; and for that we are thankful! We look forward to this new era at St. Vincent's and welcome each and every guest with open arms... ... more   less
