In my humble opinion the New Orleans CBD is where it’s at. A resurgance of entertainment in The Civic, The Orpheum, and Saenger Theatres along with developements like South Market District and the like has really helped turn the CBD into a true cosmopolitan destination in town. Just blocks away from the French Quarter and right down the street from my favorite venue, The Orpheum Theater, The Troubadour Hotel (1111 Gravier Street) has become one of the hottest properties as of late.
I recently stayed over for a night, and was blown away by how centrally located it was. I caught a show down the street, met some friends at the stunning and spacious Monkey Board (rooftop bar), had a few drinks and it became a night for the books.
The room I stayed in could have easily become my next apartment. Top notch tech and super comfy bed with a livish and beautiful bathroom it reminded me of my perfect place. If only It made sense to live there. There’s a tablet at the side of the bed that offered all the hotel’s services and support at your fingertips.
I had both dinner and breakfast at Petite Lion (helmed by Executive Chef Phillip Lopez) and was blown away by both the cheeseburger and the very special pancakes the following morning. Below you’ll see some of the highlights from my time at The Troubadour. Check it out, and I hope it becomes your next favorite spot.
