There are a total of 111 rooms and suites on the property each with its own character and charm. The rooms are divided between the Main House, Hermann House Cottage Guest Rooms, and the Carriage House Guest Rooms.
The Main House has three floors of rooms. Some of these rooms have lovely balconies overlooking the courtyard or French Quarter. The Hermann House Cottage Guest Rooms and Suites include 14 spacious rooms and 2 one-bedroom suites. These rooms are across the street from the Main House. In 1991 the hotel did renovations and uncovered the original brick walls and cypress posts that are now part of each room.
The Carriage House Guest Rooms and Suites include a combination of 8 rooms and suites which overlook the lush courtyard of the Carriage House. The house was once part of a French Quarter townhouse. These rooms feature eighteen-century architecture and period antiques.

There is onsite valet parking available at the front entrance of the hotel. The valet can also assist in holding your bags if you have a late flight out of New Orleans. We took advantage of this service and it was so nice knowing our bags were locked up while we had a chance to enjoy a few more hours in New Orleans.
