The Loews New Orleans has a whole lot to offer, including a complimentary fitness center, pool, whirlpool, and dry sauna — plus happy hour each day from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. The property lies in the heart of New Orleans’ central business district, just a few blocks from the French Quarter and the Morial Convention Center. What was once an office building on the corner of Poydras and South Peters Street now features some of the city’s largest guest rooms — and extraordinary service. 

What You Need to Know

The Look

It's All in the Details

The Loews is quintessential New Orleans: warm and elegant. It weaves a mix of Creole, West Indian, and Colonial French cultures into the interior design elements, along with a New Orleans-inspired collage behind the front desk. The guest rooms are awash in blues, grays, and splashes of bright color. You get a true sense of place with beautiful photography, which depicts the city’s beloved architecture.

The Vibe

You’ll feel at home whether you’re hanging out in the lobby, relaxing with a cocktail at Bar Peters, or dining at the on-site restaurant, Poydras & Peters, which pays homage to the cultural diversity and history of the Poydras Market. The market occupied the land in the center of Poydras Street from the 1830s to1930s. 

Who Will Love It

Business travelers will love the convenience to the Convention Center. Leisure travelers — be it couples, families, or friend groups — will love its central location and proximity to attractions. It’s also a short walk to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. 

Who Might Not

If you want to be in the heart of the French Quarter, this might not be your best option (though it’s within easy walking distance). 

Best Amenity

Aside from the superior hospitality, the indoor saltwater lap pool, whirlpool, and dry sauna are pretty fantastic. 

Money Matters

What’s Included

Rooms start at $189 per night. The nightly rate includes complimentary wifi plus use of the fitness center, indoor pool, whirlpool, and dry sauna. There's also a 24-hour business center and 24-hour room service.
