    A hotel can be old, but it certainly shouldn't look old. Case in point: The historic Roosevelt, a classic among the lodging offerings of New Orleans, had begun to show a little wear before Hurricane Katrina.

Recent lodgers gush over the comfortable rooms and their high-quality furniture (leather chairs and couches, in some cases), and appreciate modern features like the high-speed internet access (for a fee) and two flat-screen TVs. The staff members also win over recent patrons for being exceptionally accommodating.

    Soniat House is an idyllic choice for couples — the decor practically screams "rendezvous," with its four-poster beds (only available in some rooms), its French and Italian antique furniture and its candlelit courtyards.

Recent guests say they flocked to The Soniat House Hotel knowing it would be more like an escape to the city's bygone era and therefore tolerated some of its flaws (no in-room coffee makers and a small, slow elevator) for the charming experience.
