Traditional Southern stay in the heart of New Orleans with a rooftop pool and top-notch French restaurant
The luxe Windsor Court Hotel truly stands apart in the famously funky party town of New Orleans. It’s decorated in a traditional American style, with an extensive art collection that focuses on English art, particularly portraits of the royal family and Windsor Castle. With its large heated rooftop pool, elegant style and traditional ideas about Southern hospitality, it’s the only hotel in Louisiana to earn both a four-star rating from Mobil and a four-diamond rating from AAA. The Windsor Court is practically an all-suite hotel — even the 56 Deluxe Rooms come close, at 400 square feet. Full Suites measure up to 800 square feet and have a butler’s pantry and separate living room with French doors and views of the skyline or the Mississippi River. The hotel’s restaurants are popular with guests and locals alike, with the Grill Room leading the pack. It offers indulgent dishes such as prime New York strip and Hudson Valley foie gras. The Polo Club Lounge has a more casual vibe, while afternoon high tea in Le Salon is based on English tradition and is practically a requirement when staying at the Windsor Court.
In the Area
High tea is a must-do in Le Salon; the delicacies live up to the hotel’s British-inflected name, and you'll have a hearty meal served in three courses, including tea sandwiches, caviar canapés and, of course, tea (wine, too). Bar none, the best breakfast in New Orleans is at nearby Mother’s Restaurant. You’ll need to line up early to get a seat at this landmark (founded in 1938), full-of-life city gem. Although Mother’s serves food all day (until 10 p.m., including peerless po'boys and jambalaya), it has become famous for the hangover-easing properties of the food. Set quite close to the Windsor Court is the stunning Restaurant August. Lauded local chef John Besh takes on Nawlins classics and gives them a wonderfully inventive spin.
