Elegant medium size lobby with an antique crystal chandeliers, a casually elegant atmosphere, and a white marble promenade the length of the building create a feeling of intimacy not found in today's contemporary hotels. Beveled and arched glass windows, shiny brass and warm rich colors have become a trademark of the hotel.
Lacy iron balconies and arches grace the historic exterior of this now famous landmark. Covering a full city block between Chartres and Royal Streets, and facing the imposign facade of the Supreme Court Building, the Hotel has won many awards, including the coveted Vieux Carre Honor award for historic restoration.
Comfortably elegant, the traditional style of the rooms offer guests all the pleasures of modern convenience and an understated elegance that is perfect in an historic property. Many face the vibrant streets of the French Quarter, with views over the rooftops, while others on lush quiet and hidden courtyards. All are graced with amenities like high speed wireless internet, umbrellas and robes, laptop size security safes, minibars, writing desks and the rich, warm decor of a luxury hotel.
The restaurant has been the haunt of literary greats, and infamous politicians for generations. Truly the place to "see and be seen" in New Orleans. Creole dishes, fresh Louisiana Seafood, a lavish breakfast buffet are served seven days per week, with a Jazz Brunch on Sunday. There is also a rooftop pool side cafe with spectacular views of the mighty Mississippi River.
