The historic city of New Orleans is known for its incredible French-style architecture. Many of the hotels in the area take advantage of the city’s classical origins to create vintage yet luxurious experiences for their guests. Here are just some of the many amazing hotels found in The Big Easy.
Audubon Cottages is a group of seven historical cottages located in the famous French Quarter. There are both one- and two-bedroom suites available. Each of the cottages is renovated beautifully, maintaining historical New Orleans looks while adding modern amenities like flatscreen TVs and refrigerators. These cottages also come with private or semi-private courtyard spaces. A butler service is included, as well as access to the heated saltwater pool.
Though it’s one of New Orleans’s newer hotels, Columns is a converted 19th century mansion and is decorated to match its historical origins. The entire hotel, including each of its 20 rooms, is decorated with vintage-inspired décor. It combines its vintage vibe with modern amenities, which include an outdoor garden space, a restaurant that includes indoor and outdoor dining, and a rooftop bar. Located in the Garden District, it is conveniently close to the St. Charles streetcar line, making travel across the city easy.
Hotel Peter and Paul
The Hotel Peter and Paul is the outcome of a restoration of the former Saints Peter and Paul Catholic church, including its rectory and convent, as well as the schoolhouse next door. While the church is left as a bookable venue, the other three buildings include a total of 71 rooms decorated with antiques and touches of religious theming. Included is a restaurant, bar, café, and an ice cream parlor. It is located in the Faubourg Marigny neighborhood, between the French Quarter and the Bywater.
W New Orleans – French Quarter
The W in New Orleans offers a luxury experience in the French Quarter. Though the outdoor space is built with a courtyard-style, brick architecture to match the rest of the French Quarter, the entire interior is very trendy with an artistic, ultra-modern flair. The outdoor courtyard includes a pool and the hotel’s in-house restaurant, SoBou, offers Creole and New Orleans street food.
