    The Nopsi Hotel

    July 14, 2017

    It actually doesn’t get any more New Orleans than NOPSI. Short for “New Orleans Public Service, Inc.”, NOPSI was who you paid back in the days for your utility service in Nola.

    Q&C Hotel/Bar

    I was downtown for the weekend mainly because of Boudin, Bourbon, & Beer and for a long time I wanted to stay in the Q&C Hotel/Bar (344 Camp St.).  Located in the CBD, and just blocks away from Champion Square, as well as tons of New Orleans attractions, the Q&C proved to be a perfect home base.

Now more than ever, we’re starting to see a serious influx of international boutique hotels popping up around town, and more importantly, giving folks a great alternatives to the grand and traditional Nola stalwarts.

  • Le Méridien

    For years, The W Hotel at the end of Poydras (where the French Quarter meets the CBD) was the pinnacle of modern hotels in New Orleans. Don’t get me wrong, there are some tremendous modern and chic boutiques around pre-k, but it was SPG’s W hotel which ushered in a new modern era. As a city we’ve evolved since the opening of the W on Poydras and so has SPG’s plans for the space.

  • The Hotel Monteleone

    In my opinion, historically, there’s no other New Orleans hotel more regal in stature than The Hotel Montleone. Of all the historical properties around town, or even in the French Quarter, The Montleone is New Orleans. From the moment I stepped through their storied doors, I was met with comfort and enthusiasm from the staff, and was very well taken care of. For the most part, as a tourist in other cities, I don’t ask for much or for that matter need much. I always had fresh towels and toiletries, never waited more than a few minutes for my vehicle when I needed it, and the high speed wireless internet was a huge plus.
