One of the more elegant options on Bourbon Street, this large white-marble landmark is a replica of the grand 1800s St. Louis Hotel, with columns, gilt mirrors, and magnificent chandeliers. You get a central location along with traditional elegance. All rooms have marble baths; some have balconies. The lobby-level Rib Room is a classic see-and-be-seen restaurant. The rooftop pool has one of the city's best views of the French Quarter.
