This elegant New Orleans mainstay serves up southern hospitality and French Quarter character right alongside the quintessential Bourbon Street bustle. The spa sprawls over 25,000 square feet with 22 treatments rooms, while a NOLA antique collection sets a decidedly old south scene. Vibrant jewel tones lend a festive vibe in the rooms with neoclassical-style furniture, marble bathrooms and specially commissioned artwork. Both the Davenport Lounge (with Wednesday jazz) and M Bistro (with a southern tour of farm-to-table flavors) attract tourists and locals alike.
In the Area
Start your day with creative crepes (like duck confit with apple and balsamic reduction) at Merchant cafe. Head over to Congo Square at Louis Armstrong Park for grassy lounging scored by street jazz. Then get ready for more good eating, from down-and-dirty po’ boys at Verti Marte to duck confit beignets at SoBou to the boozy 25-cent martini lunches at the landmark Commander’s Palace. Ditch the Bourbon Street mess in favor of nights spent chilling to live music in the backyard of wine bar Bacchus or hitting up the jazz clubs—Spotted Cat, dba—on Frenchmen Street.
How to Get There
I am quite picky about my hotels and I loved this one! It's beautiful, well kept and definitely has NOLA charm/vibe. The staff from the front desk (especially) and the cleaning staff were so accommodating to some unique requests I had and happy to help. Nice work out facility w a resistance pool and Jacuzzi (indoor only). Great location within walking distance to Bourbon Street and Jackson Square.
I was here for a business conference and found the room and the service to be excellent. Upon checking out, I left my keys in my room and didn't discover this until I had flown home. I called the hotel, they sent someone to check the room, and they found my keys. They were sent via express service by the next morning, and the employee (Adrian) did a nice job of keeping me apprised via email. He even apologized for the inconvenience, as if it was the fault of anyone but me!
Attended a 3 day conference at the hotel and stayed there. An older hotel but maintained in the elegant style of the design. The service was excellent from the rooms to the meal preparation in the conference areas.
The rooms are large, comfortable and very clean. A little tricky to get to the check-in that is on the 3rd floor with slower limited elevators. I have not stayed in any other hotels in this city.
The wifi seemed a little spotty even though I had signed up to receive complimentary wifi and also had access to the conference wifi.
Just spent the weekend here, and once again, had a great time! I love the convenience of having the club to go to for drinks, snacks, etc throughout the day/night, which pays for itself compared to staying on a non-club level and paying $6 for Oreos. The club has fresh baked cookies, along with many more things, and free drinks after 5PM. I love the spaciousness of the club and the rooms.
We had a great stay in this beautiful hotel. The rooms and staff were great. We had a wonderful experience on Bourbon street which was right around the corner. The nightly entertainment was a treat as well. We would definitely stay there again.
