Our favourite rooms
Simply dressed with polished floors, crisp cotton sheets and imposing cypress headboards, rooms at Catahoula have playfully preserved the townhouse’s rich, photogenic history. Book a snug Guest Room if you’re planning on being out and about; for a more leisurely stay opt for one of the Premier Rooms with a small balcony. The loft-like Master Room has its own little bar, an open-plan seating area with a cosy Chesterfield sofa and a large shower for sudsing up à deux.
Bring shades and an old-school fan for the hot and humid summer months; earplugs and eye masks if you’re visiting during Mardi Gras.
One Classic Room has been adapted for wheelchair users, who also have access to the rooftop bar in the hotel’s lift. Nights can get a bit noisy during Mardi Gras: The Union Street windows are 19th-century originals.
Pets under 23 kilogrammes are welcome for $75 a stay, though they’re only allowed in the rooms and courtyards. See more pet-friendly hotels in New Orleans.
The hotel is more of a grown-up stay, but kids are welcome. Older children can stay in interconnecting rooms or the Bunk Room.
