Our favourite rooms
Dressed with exposed brick walls, polished hardwood floors and upholstered headboards, rooms espouse the neighbourhood’s warehouse-chic aesthetic. Windowless Deluxe rooms are perfect for night owls, but early birds may prefer the Premium King rooms’ floor-to-ceiling windows. Creative types should hole up in Artist Loft Suites, sprawling spaces with a convivial sitting area decked out with pieces curated by a local artists’ collective.
Bring some dancing shoes for joining impromptu street parties, but leave plenty of space in your luggage for something to hang on your walls at home.
The hotel has wheelchair-accessible rooms equipped with larger bathrooms and adapted showers. Stop by the shop for locally-crafted totes, soaps and candles – a nod to the building’s past as a chandlery serving the city’s ships.
Furry friends are welcomed with their own bed, food and water bowls, a toy, treat and custom-made tag with the hotel’s details should they stray from their owners. Pet stays cost $45 for any duration. See more pet-friendly hotels in New Orleans.
Welcome. Under-16s stay free in two-bed Premium and Deluxe double rooms and the Artist Loft Suite. Cots and extra beds can be added to other rooms. The restaurant has highchairs and the team will happily rustle up child-friendly meals.
The hotel takes care to reduce its footprint: it uses energy-saving bulbs, recycles food waste and sources much of its seafood, meat and produce locally. Guests are encouraged to enjoy responsible stays, too, by receiving a $5 minibar credit for every day they skip housekeeping.
