Park yourself at one of the drum-kit coffee tables and stay put.
Keep it relaxed but stylish and you’ll fit right in.
None, but there’s no danger of going hungry in New Orleans. The hotel offers daily coffee, tea and orange juice in the Parlor, and light pastry offerings (think buttery croissants or muffins) are provided over the weekend.
Communal lounge and bar area, the Parlor has 12-foot tall ceilings, a sparkly chandelier and drum-kit coffee tables. Tongue-in-cheek artwork by local artist Hayley Gaberlavage is hung on the walls; most are family portraits of the current owners, with their faces covered by their favourite cocktail. Antique furniture has been updated with modern prints, a beautifully-framed orange Mardi Gras carnival dress has a place of honour, and chilled-out New Orleans jazz music is usually playing in the background. Try the two signature cocktails while you’re there: a home-made lemonade and bourbon Lemon H, or an orange- and pineapple-infused Hurricane Martini. The bar is also well-stocked with beer, including local craft brew Abita Nola ale, and you’ll find tried and true cocktail options too: go for an old fashioned or tempt fate with a dark ‘n’ stormy.
The bar is always open: on the weekends, bartenders run the full-service bar, but the reception team are perfectly qualified to pour drinks during the week.
None, but every room has a minibar stocked with local Zapps crisps, Tabasco dark chocolate, local sodas, nuts, sweet potato-based Zydeco bars, and a voodoo doll (yes, really). Chocolate-chip cookies magically appear during turndown service.
