A boutique hotel on the property once owned by the founder of New Orleans.. The Scene What this small, European-style hotel doesn't offer in amenities it makes up for in ornateness. You'll find crown molding, chandeliers, flowery fabrics, old-fashioned art and rugs that bid you to remove your shoes. The house restaurant serves up American favorites, and guests can also take advantage of the neighborhood's star eateries. Early risers can nosh on breakfast fare at Huey's Diner or sample the best roast beef Debris on earth at Mother's Restaurant--it serves this signature New Orleans' dish over biscuits or on po'boys. August, Cuvee and Rene Bistrot are all in the highest league for dinner service.
The Details Basic amenities like cable TV, coffeemakers and safes are offered. Four-poster king and queen-size beds and English-style furniture set the tone. The hotel is within walking distance of the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center and the Mississippi River.
