Clubby, industrial, cool. A $10.2 million renovation in 2014 has transformed the Q&C into one of the Big Easy’s most stylish boutique hotels. The lobby blends concrete floors and exposed ductwork with honeywood paneling, buttery leather sofas and glossy white tile in a manner reminiscent of a modern-day speakeasy. Open-work iron light fixtures are fitted with copper-hued glass globes and Edison lightbulbs for a look that’s functional and funky. Black-and-white photographs and cameo-style prints adorn the walls throughout the Q&C, lest guests lose sight of the hotel’s — and the city’s — storied past.
Bed and Bath
What the guestrooms lack in square footage they make up in style, in the form of polished wood floors and headboards, exposed brick walls, and crisp white linens. Custom retro wallpaper by Kraig Kalashian Architecture & Design is emblazoned with locomotives in homage to the hotel’s past as the headquarters of the Queen and Crescent Railroad. White subway tiles and chrome fixtures give a modern feel to the bathrooms, which are cleverly concealed behind sliding wood panels.
The Q&C’s lobby bar slings craft cocktails and small-batch brews, while chef Josh Garic’s kitchen serves gourmet happy hour snacks — think boudin with creole honey mustard — and regionally inspired dishes for breakfast and dinner, from fried oysters to baked cheese grits, which patrons can enjoy at the bar or in the Whiskey Room dining room. Tufted leather sofas in the adjoining lounge area make for comfy pre-dinner drinks or sports viewing on the flat-screen TV, while a separate library and a den offer quiet comfort. High speed WiFi and in-room work stations keeps working visitors connected, and the fitness center allows guests to work off all those Cajun calories.
In the Area
For every jazz club in the Crescent City — start at Preservation Hall — there’s a stellar restaurant or attraction to match. Head to Mother’s for real-deal po’boys and jambalaya, then satisfy your sweet tooth with pillowy beignets and hot chicory coffee at Café du Monde. For dinner you might be served a celebrity sighting with your braised beef cheeks at Sylvain. Post up for battle aboard a submarine at the National World War II Museum, stomp along with street performers in Jackson Square, stroll past historic mansions in the Garden District, or catch a Saints game at the Superdome.
How to Get There
First time at this property for out honeymoon and wow the customer service was amazing! No-one failed to congratulate us and make us feel so special! Amazing housekeeping team, front office and Conceirge!!!! Hands down to one of the best trip for us!
Will definitely be back.
From the moment we walked in everything was wonderful. All of the staff was so great and welcoming but especially the doorman Keith! We absolutely loved him and he made our stay so wonderful. Next time we visit we will definitely be staying here agin!
After leaving another hotel because of multiple guest service issues, I stumbled upon this hotel on my Bonvoy app. Decided to book a room for the night and walked over to check in. Because I had a wedding to attend, I was a bit early to check in, but was reassured that a room should become available soon.
Everyone from the concierge to the gentleman assisting with my luggage was outstanding, but I would like to draw specific attention to Vanessa at the front desk.
Vanessa was out-of-this-world friendly. Her warm and welcoming demeanour made me feel relaxed and at home.
Please recognise her for her commitment to exceptional guest service; she is a definite asset to your hotel.
The hotel is really beautiful, I am a huge fan of a place with character and it surely has the charm of Nola. The staff was absolutely amazing and made the stay for our birthday weekend celebration even more special with the warm welcome and the ideas for things to do around town. The rooms are a little smaller than what I'm used to however it ended up being just right. The mattress was surprisingly comfortable.
My only thought was relating to the music in the lobby on the first day or two of my trip it seemed to have music that matched the expected NOLA charm, then it switched to Top 40 which changed the atmosphere for sure.
Close to everything in the French Quarter with out all the traffic. This has been my 3rd stay and I will always book at the Q&C from now on. Staff is outstanding! During my 3 day stay my hands never touched the main door, there is always someone there to open the door and welcome you back. The staff at the front desk ALWAYS greets you as you walk by. Outstanding hospitality.
