It doesn't take long for New Orleans to start working its magic on visitors. Most start in the French Quarter, where you can order a Sazerac at a historic grande dame hotel that's hosted Ernest Hemingway and Truman Capote. Another convenient base, the Central Business District, offers a renovated property with French influences, museum-worthy art, and live jazz.
But there are many more charming, distinctive neighborhoods to explore, from the stately Garden District to the Faubourg Marigny. Let T+L make your trip planning easier with this guide to the top hotels in NOLA, based on readers' votes in our annual World's Best Awards survey.
