From its glittering lobby to each beautiful, traditionally furnished guest room, one of the truly iconic New Orleans hotels offers a grand experience. A downtown anchor for more than a century, the hotel was nearly destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. Its glam is back, the legendary Sazerac Bar is a top spot for cocktails, and the Blue Room serves a sumptuous Sunday jazz brunch. There's a 12,000-square-foot world-class European spa and fitness center as well. Also attached is the great John Besh restaurant, Domenica.

My partner and I stayed in the hotel over Christmas. It was so beautiful and enchanting with its festive flavour. The lights sparkled with illuminescence whilst the inhouse food was cooked to perfection. The concierge are always friendly and eager to help. As an out-of-towner we were embraced in the South with open arms. I would not hesitate to recommend this beautiful old school, romantic hotel with plush couches and egyptian cotton soaked king size
beds right in the heart of the French Quarter. Beignet anyone?
