This real escape from the New Orleans hoopla more than lives up to its lofty name with lavishly appointed, romantic rooms that evoke old Louisiana through period pieces and distinctive private baths. The Greenwood Suite includes a hot tub, a Mardi-Gras-themed stained-glass window, and a private balcony that extends across the front of the house, overlooking historic St. Charles Avenue. An oak-shaded common balcony on the second floor stands atop a traditional New Orleans
garden. The continental breakfast is served in either the dining room or on the balcony.
