Perhaps the most distinctive and most photographed of the small inns of the French Quarter, The Cornstalk Hotel offers its visitors a unique experience of Victorian charm in the heart of the Vieux Carre’.
Brilliantly glowing crystal chandeliers reflected in lovely antique mirrors greet you from a bygone era as you enter the lush quiet of the grand entrance hall lobby. Antique furnishings, beautifully set off by the high vaulted sleeping room ceilings, set the mood of quiet comfort found during your stay with us. The rosette scrolls, cherubs and medallions are relics of Louisiana sugar plantation home craftsmanship. Stained-glass windows, fireplaces, oriental rugs and canopy beds are among the many amenities.
In contrast to the raucous bright lights of Bourbon Street, Royal Street is the French Quarter’s crown jewel in terms of elegance, decorum and culture. Galleries and other specialty shops are designated only by plain wooden signs, and feature the work of some of the finest local artists, as well as others with international “name recognition.”
In addition, Royal Street features some of the finest examples of centuries-old architecture with ornately decorated exteriors and balconies. It is one of the most photographed streets in the world, and one of the most frequently seen streets in films and TV shows.
“The cornstalk is gorgeous. Far enough removed from the chaos of Bourbon St, surrounded by art galleries and boutiques. The ample free water and turn down service is thoughtful and the hotel itself is beautifully kept…” – BebeK from London,UK via TripAdvisor
