Hotels in New Orleans
Whether you want a luxury hotel, mainstream chain or an antiques-filled inn or B&B, there is a wide variety of hotels in New Orleans. If you want to stay near the action, choose a hotel in the French Quarter, Warehouse District or Central Business District, but if you want to be a little more away from it, choose Uptown or the Garden District. Just book ahead if you plan to come during spring or fall. Nestle yourself right in the action, or while away the hours at some of the best hotels in New Orleans.
The Audubon Cottages, a luxe collection of antiques-filled cottages, have both charm and easy access to Bourbon Street. 714 Gov. Nicholls Street is a New Orleans hotel that’s an example of the city’s coy Hollywood presence: Francis Ford Coppola turned this French Quarter house into a seven-room inn with exposed-brick interiors, antiques, and modern art. Located at the edge of the French Quarter, the Ritz-Carlton is a plush New Orleans hotel and an oasis of calm, Southern hospitality. It’s comprised of two buildings: the Beaux-Arts Maison Blanch (1908) and Art Nouveau Kress (1913), with cypress elevator cabs and a $3.5 million art collection. The Windsor Court Hotel sits in the Central Business District, but the New Orleans hotel has a seriously fun side: Jazz bands serenade crowds in the Polo Club Lounge and museum-worthy sculptures, paintings, and tapestries line the lobby and halls.
