Style and comfort are big at this ultramodern hotel in a historic building on Canal Street, where you can equally indulge in a lively lobby and late night burlesque show, as you can in soft sheets and spa-quality bath products.
YOU SHOULD KNOW The entertainment and style at this hotel caters to adults, and isn't the best choice for children and families.
Rooms are more toned down than the dramatic lobby, with exposed brick, blue and white accented decor, and Egyptian cotton linens. The "Archangel Michael" deluxe suite plays the saint, with white leather furniture, a full white kitchen and glass dining table; while the "Archangel Lucifer" plays sinner, with red and gold accents, black marble, and a private stage and dance poll, for more adventurous guests.
Request a room on a high floor for ultimate quiet and entertaining views of the street down below.
The lobby, with its fun house of mirrors, throne-like chairs, and gigantic bell-shaped chandeliers, besides being a surprisingly comfortable place to sit and relax, has a lot of entertainment to offer: there's full sized pool table, a library, Apple computers for complimentary use, and intimate velvet seating alcoves.
In a sleek open dining room overlooking Canal Street, Tempt serves contemporary Southern food for breakfast and dinner.
The Saint is packed between several other large hotels on a busy section of canal street. On one side of Canal, you’ll find the CBD and Warehouse District, while the other will lead you into the French Quarter.
Acme Oyster House (5-minute walk) is a favorite for sampling gulf oysters in their best ways: fried in a po' boy or charbroiled with garlic and butter. Galatoire’s (4-minute walk) is a historic stop for ambiance and Creole cuisine.
Having a cocktail at Arnaud’s French75 Bar (5-minute walk) makes for an elegant step back in time; Old Absinthe House (4-minute walk) has charming French Quarter history in a more divey atmosphere.
WHY WE LIKE IT
We like that this hotel is a nod at the more sinful indulgences of New Orleans, while still maintaining saintly comfort and a great night's sleep.
