Fodor's Expert Review Le Pavillon Hotel

833 Poydras St., New Orleans, Louisiana, 70112, USA

One of the most regal hotels downtown offers romantic spaces, attentive service, and high-ceiling, traditionally furnished guest rooms in history-filled building dating to 1907. Magnificent chandeliers adorn the European-style lobby, a handsome collection of artwork lines the corridors, and the marble railing in the clubby Gallery Lounge is originally from the Grand Hotel in Paris. The opulent hotel lounge has 30-foot ceilings, marble columns, and a magnificent mahogany bar. It's great for an afternoon cocktail.
