333 Poydras St., New Orleans, Louisiana 70130, USA
A large modern space renovated in 2014, the hip, airy lobby lets guests mingle and relax before heading out to the many sights and spots located conveniently nearby this hotel.
YOU SHOULD KNOW At $45/night, valet here is quite pricey, but not unusual for hotels in the area. Book a nearby lot and trek it a few blocks, or consider visiting New Orleans without a car to save funds.
King beds are roomy and comfortable, decor is sleek and modern, and room windows (though some are quite small) offer views of the city.
Small bathrooms have modern walk-in showers.
With two story ceilings, floating shelves full of art books, and plenty of living room areas and high tables, this large lobby is designed to be a hip hangout for guests and friends. Beyond the restaurant you'll find an outdoor courtyard looking out onto Poydras Street.
Rooftop views, roomy cabanas, and potted palm trees bring glamour to this small pool and lounge area.
A 24-hour fitness center looks out onto the pool area, and offers several cardio machines, strength training equipment, and free weights.
In a chic space on the ground floor, LMNO serves New Orleans-inspired entrees for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Marche on the second floor is a great location for business luncheons and private dinners, when reserved ahead of time, and the hotel is flexible about making it work for your group's needs.
Longitude 90 serves coffee and espresso drinks during the morning and a wide bar menu at night, including the hotel's signature list of sparkling wine cocktails. It's a nice place to head before a day out or unwind before bed, and the wine list is impressive.
Its about a 5-minute walk to both the St. Charles and Canal streetcar lines, which can take you to Uptown, Garden District, and Mid City.
It's a 6-minute walk to NOSH (New Orleans Social House), downtown's chic new wine bar serving mezze, flatbreads, and fresh oysters. Locals will again and again recommend Peche (8-minute walk) for its stellar seafood and refined digs.
Within walking distance, you'll find popular Warehouse District venues of Howlin' Wolf (9-minute walk), good for a comedy showcase, or a night of local jazz or hip hop. Many local bounce stars and national hip hop, electronic, and R&B acts come to Republic NOLA (7-minute walk).
WHY WE LIKE IT
It offers a little more than the typical chain hotel in this area, in terms of style, drinks, and dining. It's an enjoyable (and convenient) place to come home to after a long day out on the town.
