Revamped business-centric sleep on New Orleans’s iconic St. Charles Avenue, with a rooftop pool and Gulf Coast–focused restaurant
Built in 1984 for the world’s fair, this business-centric sleep just woke up from a $25 million makeover. The hotel’s 484 spiffed-up guestrooms start at 300 square feet and are done in gold hues complemented by cherrywood furnishings and stainless steel lamps; all include work desks, 42-inch flat-screen TVs and free WiFi. Suites start at 573 square feet and have balconies (some with French Quarter views). Among the benefits of the renovation is the 15th-floor fitness center, which has an outdoor pool looking out over the city and Pete’s Café, which serves rich coffee, pastries and sandwiches. Topping the hotel’s renaissance off is Trenasse, a new Gulf Coast–focused restaurant from chef Jim Richard of Florida’s famed Stinky’s Fish Camp. Fresh oysters are available “all day, everyday,” and the choice tastes of Louisiana include tangy buffalo frog legs, alligator tamales and flounder and lump crab paupiettes.
In the Area
Though the InterContinental New Orleans excels at conferences and weddings, its location on St. Charles Avenue puts it two blocks from the French Quarter, four blocks from Harrah’s New Orleans and six blocks from the riverfront — and, come Mardi Gras time, it has a front row seat on the parade route. The Morial Convention Center, Uptown and the Superdome are also nearby. Hop on the nation’s oldest streetcar, the St. Charles line, for a lift to the Garden District, which is famous for its antebellum mansions. Don’t miss the haute creole cuisine at Commander’s Palace restaurant, an icon in the heart of the Garden District since 1880.
