The Best Boutique Hotels
New Orleans

Long an outlier among Southern cities, New Orleans continues to evolve, but without losing an ounce of its distinctive character. Heavily influenced by both Europe and the Caribbean, it's got personality to spare, a fact that's reflected in its uniquely eclectic selection of boutique hotels.

Audubon Cottages — A luxury boutique hotel in New Orleans

Audubon Cottages

The French Quarter

There’s a certain class of hotels that guests, especially the famous ones, seem to have a hard time leaving — places like Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood, or the old Chelsea Hotel in New York. Add to the list New Orleans’ Audubon Cottages, a perfect picture of genteel Big Easy leisure if ever we’ve seen one. The seven private residences, centered around a quiet, leafy courtyard in the French Quarter, take their name from the naturalist John James Audubon, who showed up in 1821 and didn’t leave until he finished his famous Birds of America series the following year.

Soniat House — A boutique hotel in the french Quarter, New Orleans

Soniat House

The French Quarter

Certain parts of New Orleans had been quick to trade history and atmosphere for a quick tourist buck. But the Soniat House is the precise opposite of the phony drunken theme park atmosphere which was once so readily available elsewhere. This, a peaceful residential district in the lower Vieux Carré, is the authentic New Orleans, all nineteenth-century Creole charm, and this hotel is as authentic as they come, three 1830s townhouses converted into the city's finest boutique hotel.

International House — A boutique hotel in the Central Business District, New Orleans

International House

Central Business District

It is time to go back to New Orleans: if not for the Mardi Gras shops selling Comme des Garcons, and fusion cuisine replacing the beignet. International House hotel still manages to fuse old and new successfully — it is modern without being obnoxious, stylish without being frigid. It is, in fact, one of those most rare things in life: a boutique hotel with soul. More...

Loft 523 — boutique hotel in the Central Business District, New Orleans

Loft 523

Central Business District

Loft 523 is an oddity in old-fashioned New Orleans — a boutique hotel in a completely modern style, one that would look at home in New York or London. Where many New Orleans hotels aim for a French mansion style, all antiques and ivy, Loft 523 is stark, minimal, contemporary. From inside, one could be forgiven for thinking of Soho; the fact that the French Quarter begins just a block away may make for a case of culture shock. More...

Henry Howard Hotel — boutique hotel in Uptown The Garden District, New Orleans

Henry Howard Hotel

Uptown The Garden District

Who doesn’t love a good makeover story? It wouldn’t be quite fair to cast the old Henry Howard House Inn in the role of ugly duckling, but the transformation of this Greek Revival mansion, at the hands of a pair of New York hotel developers, was a dramatic one. Now, the historic building gets its star turn, reopening its doors as the Henry Howard Hotel, an 18-room boutique that’s every bit as graceful as you’d wish from a long weekend stay in the Big Easy.

W New Orleans French Quarter — A luxury boutique hotel in The French Quarter, New Orleans

W New Orleans French Quarter

The French Quarter

There are touches of French Quarter influence all over the W, from the wrought-iron gate outside to the Venetian chandeliers hanging in the restaurant; all very appropriate for one of America’s most European cities. But it stops well short of kitsch — this is 21st-century New Orleans, not some gothic period piece. The rooms are sunny and bright, with cheerful splashes of magenta keeping the vampires at bay, and some rooms have French doors opening onto balconies with views over the courtyard pool. More...

Ace Hotel New Orleans Hotel — A luxury hotel in the Warehouse District, New Orleans

Ace Hotel New Orleans

Warehouse District

There’s no place in the American South better suited to the Ace aesthetic than New Orleans, perhaps the most colorful city in the country. And it’s hard to imagine a better building for the task than this Twenties Art Deco edifice, in the newly revitalized Warehouse District. Ace’s favorite designers, Roman and Williams, had plenty to work with here, a richly detailed backdrop for their trademark eclecticism. The result is predictable, in a good way: it’s more or less what you’d expect when America’s hippest hoteliers set up shop in one of America’s coolest cities. More...
