Great place for a cocktail
We had a delightfully delicious brunch on the veranda that we will remember for years to come
Awesome atmosphere and great old new orleans feel.
One of the best bars to have a day drink at in New Orleans.
Beautiful views, a step back in time as far as the beautiful scenery goes, and damn good service and drinks.
This was our first time staying in the upper garden district. We pick the Columns because we saw the porch from the trolley. It didn't disappoint it's historical vibe is wonderful. The rooms are a bit tread bare but have antiques bring out old New Orleans charm. The staff was very friendly. As referring to the other comments about check in not being prompt, just bring some patience . I think you have to keep in mind this in mind when visiting the Deep South. If your from the north things here tend to be more laid back than you might be use too. Just go to the porch and enjoy their awesome Happy Hour as the street cars roll on by. More...

It's a beautiful place and the service is great and affordable.
Food was good, we ate outside in the heat because the inside was freezing. Overall I would say you're paying for the atmosphere over the quality of the food. Service was sub par, probably makes for a better bar than restaurant. More...
Great Victorian bar and porch! Fab bloody Mary's and great Margaritas. Yummy happy hour too if the still have it. Pretty Baby was filmed here years ago.
Lots of history, beautiful home, appetizers and drinks, not for dinner
Nice place to visit ❗

It's great if you want to be near the schools, enjoy live music at night, love sitting on a beautiful veranda to have drinks and/or visit. The staff is very friendly and the breakfast is delicious. You should remember that this is an historic property and the floors aren't all perfectly level. Sometimes the elevator doesn't work. Some of the furnishings show quite a bit of wear.Considering the pluses and minuses, this is still a great place to stay. It is very comfortable and, if you do take the steps, room service will be happy to bring you whatever you need from the restaurant or bar so you don't have to go back and forth. More...

I got married here so I'm partial to the columns, in fact I love it here. If you like vintage New Orleans vibes then you'll love it, too. It's a great place for drinks and small bites. It's also a great place to host events as the staff and event planner are amazing to work with. I've also stayed here before and the rooms are gorgeous. You can beat the view of st Charles from their porch and balcony. More...
Small intimate hotel bar located on the street car line. Excellent personal service and they pour stiff drinks here. It's Hollywood famous as several major films have been filmed here over the years. You feel like you are sitting in your grandmothers front parlor having a cocktail like that was ever gonna happen. That made me feel a little uneasy but the feeling soon passed thanks to the engaging barter. More...

Dropped in for drinks. Cool outdoor spot in the front, we went into the bar and had their signature drink, the mint julep.
A very nice place, as we as the people that work there.
Always a classic. Best way to view parades, hands down.
This place is great! I've only came here once to grab some drinks! It's literally right off the trolley tracks so an easy walk off the stop!Prices are decent but it's more of the historical building, the ambiance which makes this place great. There was a group of people dining/drinking outside and we had asked straight in to be welcomed from Shannon the hostess! Sat anywhere we wanted, drinks came quick and made the way we ordered it!Haven't tried to food but if we're ever around this area again might as well stop her for a drink! More...
I was married there 20+ years ago, very beautiful and history place. I remember all the special moments, I highly recommend a visit or even host an event there.

Dinner and drinks in a historic Avenue home now B&B with a public bar and restaurant.
Went for a birthday party and it was a perfect venue! Food was outstanding!
This is a rating for the bar only, which is classic old New Orleans through and through.
Great bar. Classy ambiance and good cocktails.
Such a cool hotel in a great location in the Garden district. Right off the streetcar line. The patio is the best part to enjoy a drink from the old fashioned bar and enjoy the beautiful setting. Good shrimp and grits too!

I love this place. Its a great spot to just relax and have a mint julep. I have not stayed in the hotel but i would assume it would be very noisy as the bar downstairs can get very loud. If you visit id suggest earlier in the evening and/or on a week day as to avoid the late night crowd. More...
Cannot imagine stayig anywhere else while in New Orleans!
It's a great place for a cocktail.
Super busy night with a tad understaffed at the bar, but the bartenders worked it hard and made great drinks! Gorgeous outdoor area.
Very beautiful place to go and relax.
Great bar with the perfect uptown New Orleans atmosphere. Can't beat cocktails on the front porch.
The Columns er et skønt gammelt hotel med masser af atmosfære og sydstatsstemning. Nærmest som at bo i en antikvitetsforretning - men på den skønne måde. Beliggenheden er helt i top - på en skyggefuld allé tæt på centrum af New Orleans, …Read more on TripAdvisor More...

Always enjoy stopping in when we are visiting New Orleans!
The hotel bar was beautiful and so was my waitress but the drinks were pretty ok not the greatest.
A great historical hotel that will warm your heart, mind, and soul. The staff are wonderful.
Great bar atmosphere
Beautiful music venue
Nice place to sit on the porch with appatizers and drinks and watch the street cars and people pass. Music inside is nice. Defenitly a must stop and check out. More...
Fun happy hour on the porch
Great place to grab a drink and enjoy a nice view of St. Charles St.
Go for the gin Ramos fizz
Bien mais se donne des airs de luxe alors que ça ne l'est pas. La nappe était sale et n'a pas été changée. 2 services sont tombés à terre. Les bières sont servies en canette ! Et les fameuses colonnes sont tout simplement en plastique ! Mais la viande était très bonne et les plats bien présentés pour un prix très raisonnable. More...
Beautiful Old N.O. hotel

The Columns was a fun place to stay. Lots of local flavor here. We were told that it was originally built as a private residence in the late 1800’s and it has all the charm and issues that you should expect from a structure that old. …MoreThe Columns was a fun place to stay.

Great friendly staff
Cool old hotel, staff is top notch, the bar is awesome and the complementary breakfast is substantial. Would be more comfortable with just a little bit of updating, particularly in the room bathroom.
Reveillon dinner was excellent.
The food, atmosphere, and staff was impeccable! Our family couldn't have asked for a better experience!
A must place to go on St Charles Street
Awesome service in the bar. Great place for drinks and snacks watching the streetcars.
Muy buenos los tragos en el bar
Gorgeous inside and out. Another fabulous historic hotel in NOLA with unique charm. "Laissez les bons temps rouler!"
Nice for a afternoon drink no good coffee
On the Sunday after a great Saturday wedding, 60 of the wedding guests still standing met for Brunch at The columns Hotel. This is grand place on Saint Charles Ave New Orleans, which has, Tulane University, LYOLA university, a great park …Read more on TripAdvisor More...

Beautiful stately old home, ecxellent atmosphere, large porches, very good bartenders, very classy. Didn't eat at the restaurant, but glanced at the menu.

Eggs Benedict! Sit on the patio!
Beautiful buuldi g and bar with great staff and menu, ruined only by horrible music completely unfitting to the atmosphere.

Beautiful setting, it's like stepping back in time. Cocktails were truly solid but not spectacular
AMAZING bloody marys! great place to come if you are in search of a more relaxed scene
The bar sets a pleasant, cozy ambiance to get a couple of drinks. Cocktails there are great. Even when the bar has a big crowd, there are a few nooks that you can share with a date or a small group. The atmosphere compels me to dress up a bit, but you don't need to get too fancy. More...
I've never stayed at this hotel on St. Charles Avenue - but I wanna - nonetheless, it's a fun place to grab a drink and share a snack with friends - choose to sit on the outside patio or inside in one of the several old-style New Orleans rooms that are set up with first-come-first-served waiter service. I like the book-filled study next to the hotel reception desk. Check out the double staircase and the murals. You can actually spend hours examining the decor, maps, and tchotkes in this place. Then grab a drink and laissez les bon temps rouler. More...
Old school feel rooms. Elevator small but staircase is decorated. Good bar who doesn't skimp on the alcohol. Would stay at again.
Another hotel general manager recommended that we come by and have a drink and watch life go by from the porch of the Columns Hotel. So, we made a point while touring the Garden District to drop by this gorgeous and historic hotel. We were blown away with the historical beauty of this hotel. It was too early for the bar to open nor did we stay at this hotel, but let me say I wanted to do both and will next time in New Orleans. More...
Really nice atmosphere with friendly waitresses and excellent food. The old fashions were outstanding.
Is there anything more iconic NOLA than sipping a late afternoon adult beverage on a front porch with Columns on St. Charles Avenue? Not for me.It's beautiful here. Check out the side garden and fountain. Then go inside. How beautiful it is. And rooms are reasonable. Made us think about actually staying here ( but only saw public areas...not guest rooms.) Drinks were good and there is a happy hour. We'll be back. You know we will. More...
nice hotel. looks pretty with the huge columns. they have space for private events.
Great spot for pre-dinner drinks! Fantastic view out on the deck sippin some mint juleps.
On a toujours l'impression d'arriver dans quelque chose de très classe mais non. L'endroit est convivial en terrasse, intime en intérieur.
La déco est très sympa.
This place is amazing! I love the atmosphere, the house is gorgeous, history is intriguing, and the cuisine for Sunday jazz brunch took everything over the top! Walking through the garden district, this 19th century Hotel and restaurant embodies the antebellum era and the food seems to take you back in time. I had the turtle soup which is amazing and the eggs Benedict which are to die for! After brunch, we took a tour of the upstairs, which is said to be haunted by the spirits of the original owners. Very fun and exciting to be in such a historical place. Would recommend. More...
Lovely place. Great front veranda to hang out on and have an early evening drink. Very attentive/supportive staff both at the desk and in the Bar. Bartender is good, caring and realistic! Able to juggle and addresss the patrons all around the bar and in the booths.Same applies to the hotel desk staff.Went for a Sunday evening Jazz combo. Unfortunately the combo which was supposed to start at 8PM, still hadn't gotten that acts together by 8:45. They arrived around 8, however, they were more interested in talking and joking with each other than getting serious about playing. Finally walked out. Can't hold it against the place as they were all top level. Everyone but the combo thought it was to start at 8, not whenever...Would we return? Absolutely, Just not for the same group. More...
Went in for drinks with friends. Great ambiance and architecture, and friendly staff. Would have preferred a good cider or Mead to be on the menu, since they had a such a large selection.
Historic and beautiful, I have not slept here but if you have been to New Orleans or even if you have not bring earplugs as these older beauties have creaks and noise. The hotel was a home and is now a grand in with amazing wood work, rooms all of different styles and a stunning front porch. Come take a tour and enjoy the gracious front desk attendants.( Sorry for fuzzy photo.) More...
The drinks were good. Bartender was able to make a whiskey sour with egg white, which is tastier than the regular kind.
Delicious burger! No dress code, stop and grab a quick bite while you are around or coming back from the zoo! I tried the french 75 with brandy, upon suggestion from our lovely server, and it was great. Great ambience, great (and fast) service, great food! We hope to come back! Thanks so much!

Beautifully restored uptown mansion that is now a hotel. You get to enjoy and experience classic Southern hospitality in a epic New Orleans setting. Tjere is nothing like sitting on the grand front porch to watch the street cars go by and to get nota feel of old uptown New Orleans life. The service, staff and food were all above standard even at the busiest time of year, Mardi Gras. I would highly recommend to anyone a visit or stay at the Columns to make their New Orleans experience complete. I love the Columns. More...
Great staff, reasonable drink prices. Hannah was super friendly, will be visiting again.
A gorgeous mansion in the Garden District, now a boutique hotel. Enjoy cocktails and tasty snacks on the front porch or in the shady side garden.
The decor is very lovely.It would be a elegant venue for a small to medium sized wedding reception. I found the staff to be very attentive and polite.
I recently attended a repast there for a long time employee, that was given by the owners. That show's a good regard for there team. That impressed

Beautiful old hotel with some interesting history associated. Had drinks in the first floor bar: lovely!
Very charming! Come here on a late afternoon for a cocktail. Both indoors and on the porch can be lovely.
Nice old place. The bar makes excellent drinks and their breakfast is delicious. I wasn't that impressed with the rooms but than again I don't care about antiques. Other people love them. Still a cool place to visit. I'd avoid their elevator if you're claustrophobic because it's very small and people have been known to get stuck in it very scary. More...
Very cool historic bar and hotel, but the drinks are just ok and the service wasn't that great. Definitely a must see location for anyone visiting New Orleans though
Great place to stop & grab a drink in the garden district. Happy hour specials were good. I got a Pimm's cup & she got $2 off a glass of wine. Its right off the St. Charles street car line and was easy to find. Inside the lobby was fantastic, it was like stepping back into time, and the bar was just as nice with a wood burning fireplace, & friendly staff. It was winter so we stayed inside to keep warm but I am sure sitting on the porch on a nice day would be great too. More...
Always a great location, relaxing most of the year but packs a crowd during the holidays. It is truly a great time, spacious and excellent bar.
My wife and I had a great stay at The Columns. Great ambiance and top-notch service. Both Waitresses (Shonda) at breakfast and at night were probably the two best I've ever been around. So personable and fun. We enjoyed seeing them so much at meals. I would recommend this spot to all my friends and family. The biggest thing to me coming from Houston is how safe the area felt. Even the street parking off of St. Charles was easy and accessible. We will definitely be back again!!! More...
Have never stayed at the hotel but have spent many nights at the bar. The drinks I've had have always been stiff, prompt, and well priced. Jameson seems to be a crowd favorite, so I've always followed suit. I plan on going back this weekend and for New Years Eve! #GiddyUp More...
The Columns is a beautiful antique gem on St. Charles Avenue. Here food is served in a grand home, similar to the way it was at Corrine Dunbar's and remains today at Brigsten's. Our experience was with a holiday Revillion dinner, a prix fixe offer common among better New Orleans restaurants in November and December.The meal was consistently good, from soup to dessert. Service was not consistent with the food. We had long delays between drinks, ordering, and then between soup and entree. A salad ordered without goat cheese, for example, had to be sent back and replaced while the rest of the table waited. Water replenishment was a slow and irregular.That said, the ambiance is charming, the bar is top-shelf, and the food is nicely done. If you afford or tolerate a bit a waiting and inefficiency here and there, it's a pleasant experience. More...

Super cozy place. It was chilly the night we went. I'm new to everything in New Orleans so everything is such an experience! I just love it! Sipped my first Ramos Gin Fizz while perched on the sofa. They even built a fire! More...
This hotel is all about location and atmosphere. The drinks were entry level and I wasn't able to try the food. I will be back because the location and building are gorgeous. The dated look really works for this place! I look forward to stopping over again. More...
What a gorgeous, old, hotel! This place is just beautiful.I've been a patron for years and the charm of the Columns never gets old. I've been to parties here and have visited just because. It's s great place to hang out with old friends and new. It gets pretty loud in the main bar, and I LOVE IT!Make sure that you really look around when you're there. Check out the architecture. From the floors to the ceilings, this place is amazing. Aaaannnddd, they make a mean White Russian. Parking is the only issue I've ever had, so the valet works for me. Keep in mind that if you valet and you plan on closing the place down, you'll have to get your keys from inside. I think the valet might leave at around 10. More...
I have not stayed in the hotel. I came for the music/drinks/apps. The hotel is beautiful. The architecture is amazing. The wine and apps were priced right. The music was great. Only crappy thing was that the bathroom sink wasn't working, and that is kind of gross More...
Dave Lindsley is a monster bartender. I'm trying not to be an alcoholic, but he makes it so difficult to be sober because of his INSANE bartending skills. You ever seen Cocktail? He makes 80's Tom Cruise look like Jumping On Oprah's Couch Tom Cruise. (that's a good thing!)Dave is an alcohol god who's power is only surpassed by Dave's alter ego, J. Dave. All hail the king!

Love this place!
