    The Nopsi Hotel

    It actually doesn’t get any more New Orleans than NOPSI. Short for “New Orleans Public Service, Inc.”, NOPSI was who…

    One Poetic Stay

    In my humble opinion the New Orleans CBD is where it’s at. A resurgance of entertainment in The Civic, The…

    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.

    AC Hotel

    We’re at an interesting crossroads in New Orleans. 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. Brands like Le Meridien and Marriot are doing a fantastic job building out fantastic spaces and offering clean and modern amenities that are meant to full integrate within the culture and community. Located in the CBD, The AC is blocks away from some of the best food in the city as well as walking distance to the center of the French Quarter.

    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.

    The Hotel Modern

    Of all the addresses in the city, Lee Circle is quite possibly one of New Orleans most interesting and cherished spots. The Circle is home to one of the best views of carnival as well as one of the most trafficked thoroughfares in town. In the center of it all is The Hotel Modern which has become just as much a landmark property as The Roosevelt Hotel or The Monteleone. What The Hotel Modern lacks in capacity and age, it makes up for it in it’s millennial approach to everything they do.

    The Hyatt Regency

    For the last few years when I’ve been fortunate enough to be a tourist in my own hometown, I’ve stayed in hotels in the French Quarter or within blocks of it. This year I truly wanted a completely different experience.
