Expert Review

Built in 1886, this French Quarter hotel walks the line between contemporary and Old World elegance. Head here in peak season – with such a vast number of accommodations (570 rooms total), there’s almost always space. The 18th-century grandeur is unmistakable in the lobby, which glistens with marble floors, chandeliers, gold-gilded paneling, and soaring ceilings. Room décor varies, but tends to be more modern with surprising touches like leopard-print upholstery contrasting with chandelier lighting, festooned moldings, and floor-to-ceiling windows (request a view of the Mississippi River or the French Quarter). The property is conveniently located just a stroll from the Mississippi, Harrah’s Casino, the aquarium, and tons of superb restaurants.
