New Orleans

International House


221 Camp St.,
New Orleans,
United States,

Just three blocks from the French Quarter, the International House hotel has a white Beaux-Arts exterior dating from the early 1900’s. In the high-ceilinged lobby, white carved pilasters and decorative molding contrast with bright red, antiqued velvet chairs and murals depicting the history of Mardi Gras. Most of the 117 guestrooms contain black-and-white photos of the city, custom-made tables topped with gold marble, and vanity lights decorated with Swarovski crystals. Basque-style cuisine is served in Kenneth LaCour’s Rambla restaurant, while the candlelit Loa bar offers inventive cocktails made with chicory-plantain bitters, freshly squeezed juices, and even Spanish moss.
