A sister hotel to the International House Hotel down the street, this property utilizes a bright industrial space to show off chic decor, modern art pieces, and plenty of natural light and space. Far enough from Bourbon Street to be a quiet escape, except on Thursday nights when the club downstairs hosts festive burlesque shows.
YOU SHOULD KNOW From the speakeasy bar to the chic modern furniture, consider leaving the children at home for a more enjoyable trip to this hotel.
Lofty rooms have high ceilings and chic decor. Beds are ultra comfortable, though walls are thin and rooms can get noisy with the bar downstairs. Three lofts have spacious, 325 feet patios.
Most rooms have large glass showers with teak benches. Upgraded lofts have gorgeous porcelain free-standing tubs.
The lobby, with sky-high ceilings, reclaimed wood beams and walls constructed almost entirely of windows, is airy and spacious.
The hotel is happy to provide free access to the gym at the International House Hotel down the block.
Ask the front desk anytime if you'd like to borrow a yoga mat.
Gravier Street Social sometimes hosts food pop-ups, but currently does not have their own food menu.
Gravier Street Social (designed by the same founder as the swanky bar Loa, down the street), is an artsy but casual spot inspired by London social clubs, and a great stop for a cocktail or two. The club often hosts burlesque shows and other live entertainment.
YOU SHOULD KNOW The bar is only open Thursday through Sunday.
Two streetcar lines are within a 3-minute walk from this hotel. The St. Charles line takes you Uptown and to Audubon Park, where streetcars on Canal St. can take you to Mid City and City Park. Travel on foot throughout the Quarter and CBD (take a cab late at night).
9 Roses Cafe (8-minute walk) serves fantastic Vietnamese comfort foods, And Restaurant R'Evolution (8-minute walk) is the place to book a one-of-a-kind New Orleans luxury meal.
While touring the Quarter, get your Pimm's Cup at Napoleon House (11-minute walk), your sazerac at Chart Room (6-minute walk), and your strange tropical concoction at Tiki Tolteca (7-minute walk).
WHY WE LIKE IT
It's a great stay for those who don't want to be cramped up in the Quarter, yet still want to feel part of the arts and entertainment scene, and walking distance from pretty much everything.
