A reasonable stay but with problems
The apartmnetn was OK. but we had great difficulty in getting access because inadequate instructions were given how to use to electronic pad (which was in poor condition) to gain access. My main complaint is the way in which Sonder dealt with my complaint and the time it took to resolve matters. I believe they lied to me and to on a number of occasions.

Place was clean, awesome location for Margo gras , we did however experience a moment of no hot water but that was quickly resolved, definitely would use Sonders again , if fact already looked up other cities I would like to visit that Sonders can be found.

The apartment was very nice and had everything we needed for a short stay. The shower water was barely luke warm. If it’s hot in New Orleans, that’s fine, but it was cold and raining. Great location, but unsavory people hanging around outside selling pot and lots of homeless begging.

Our room was as pictured. Communication was good. Other reviewers mentioned that the shops below play loud music and that is true. Ear plugs recommended for light sleepers. Mattress was memory foam, not traditional. Sheets are slippery, not cottony. Would stay again when we go back.

Wanted to love this property because it is exactly like in the pictures but the lack of basic amenities made the experience less than acceptable. Hot water wasn’t available each morning for hours at a time. Elevator was either non-functional and we were trapped in twice. There was no person on staff present to help or repair elevator. There’s an online chat service for customer support. These issues were reported to them but none were fixed. On the day of departure I had to all the luggage down 4 flight of stairs. The emergency call buttons didn’t work at any floor; I tried them on each floor prior to leaving hoping for someone to come help. I don’t know safety laws for Louisiana but it sure doesn’t look safe especially if there are people with disabilities and/or children living on any floors besides 1st floor. Overall, I won’t recommend this because of the lack of attention to safety.

Good value for a place like this on Canal street. Everything is great and it would be better if laundry bags, water and slippers are provided.

Great pic, great location
Very comfortable Airy loft. Beds were very firm but I slept really we’ll honestly. You won’t escape all the noise of the French quarter as it’s basically situated right on the edge of bourbon street. But the noise was dull enough through the windows that it didn’t affect my sleep. Great people watching along canal street from the giant windows. Will for sure stay here again

The property was ok. For the price it was not really what I had expected.

Convenience and price vs everything else.
First, the pros: the location, on Canal St. is very central. It's right by the trollies and taxis are always floating around. Shops and dining and places for schlocky souvenirs are all within a few blocks. The apartment was spotlessly clean, just like in the photos, and had plenty of space with a huge bathroom, washing machine, full kitchen, big closets, and large TV in the living room. Plus, the price was great. If you need to get two hotel rooms, you save big bucks with a two bedroom apartment. Now the cons: again, it's the location. Yes, it's ultra convenient, but the immediate area is crawling with drunk or drugged out derelicts. And I mean that literally. None of them ever bothered us or acted aggressive/threatening, but they were ever-present, regardless of the time of day. The building is not a "hotel", and there isn't any lobby or amenities (a pool, etc). Just a door in-between a chicken joint and a beer store, like a speakeasy (Sonder will email you the entry code). There's no front desk and the check in time is a firm 4PM (unless you want to pay extra $). We arrived early and waited in a nearby Starbucks with all of our suitcases for 2 hours because there isn't a front desk that could watch our bags. Also, be careful in the entranceway. They use some kind of soap on the tile floor that's extremely slippery. A lawsuit waiting to happen. In the end, would I stay here again? Probably, if my flight arrived late enough. You can't beat the convenience or the price.
