Welcome to the energetic city of New Orleans, where history and vibrant culture intertwine. Amidst the lively spirit of the “Big Easy,” I have curated a selection of hotel options for discerning travelers of every travel style:
Four Seasons Hotel New Orleans: Situated between the French Quarter and Central Business District, The Four Seasons epitomizes timeless opulence and sophistication. This historical architectural masterpiece seamlessly blends Southern charm with modern elegance.
From the moment you step into the grand lobby adorned with the extravagant crystal chandelier, you'll be transported into a world of refined luxury. The hotel interior is impressive, with a bright, airy design that features references to nature and plants found in a classic New Orleans courtyard.

Their impeccably appointed rooms and suites offer breathtaking views of the river. Each room features a dramatic focal point just above the bed: a large plaster wall relief depicting magnolia flowers. Water lovers will appreciate that the infinity pool is the largest in the city and is crescent-shaped as a nod to the city’s history. Other amenities include the spa which offers customized products for various skin types and a fitness center.
Guests never have to step foot out of the hotel for an outstanding culinary experience. With two world-class dining offerings guests are sure to have an unrivaled dining experience on property. The Four Seasons New Orleans is the perfect option for guests who look forward to a luxurious and unforgettable stay in New Orleans.
The Westin New Orleans: Perched gracefully along the Mississippi River, the Westin is a sanctuary of refined grandeur. Prepare to be pampered by the attentive staff as you indulge in a contemporary stay at the hotel. The Westin New Orleans boasts exquisite accommodations that feature modern decor that is designed to cocoon you in comfort and luxury.

The rooms and suites are thoughtfully curated with a modern aesthetic and sleek marble bathrooms, providing you with a serene escape from the bustling city. Guests can sink into the signature Westin Heavenly Bed®, ensuring a restful night's sleep, and the sleep well oil was a nice touch to usher into a good night’s sleep. Guests in upgraded room categories can awaken to sweeping views of the city or the Mississippi River with the city as the backdrop. Each room is well-appointed, guaranteeing an unforgettable stay.
Whether you are taking in stunning views from your room, or savoring the tantalizing delights and libations offered at the hotel's vibrant O11 bar and restaurant, every moment spent at The Westin is an embodiment of intentional luxury.
New Orleans Marriott Warehouse Arts District: Nestled in the heart of the Arts District, the New Orleans Marriott Warehouse Arts District Hotel beckons you with its seamless blend of buzzing energy and culture. This extraordinary hotel caters to discerning business, family, and cruise travelers seeking a perfect balance of luxury and artistic inspiration.
The property is great for families as it has a pool and is a little further away from adult activities that take place in the popular French Quarter area. Cruisers will appreciate that this hotel is a short ride to the cruise port making it a great pre and post hotel stay option. For business and event travelers, the hotel is steps away from the convention center giving attendees a nearby comfortable escape away from their meetings.

The hotel's contemporary design pays homage to the vibrant local arts scene, with captivating works of art displayed throughout its stylish corridors and public spaces. Each room and suite is thoughtfully appointed with modern furnishings and features carefully curated artwork, creating an atmosphere that is both elegant and inspiring. The property is one of the select properties in the U.S. to offer the M Club, which is available for Elite members and those with upgraded room categories. The M Club offers breakfast, snacks throughout the day, evening hors d'oeuvres, and desserts free of charge for guests.
There is also a Starbucks located inside the hotel that is available during breakfast and lunch hours. Whether you are on a family vacation seeking a break away from Bourbon Street, a connoisseur of fine experiences, a cruiser departing from New Orleans, or a traveler in the city for business, the Marriott Arts District New Orleans ensures a stay that transcends ordinary luxury, offering guests a stay where art, culture, and comfort converge.
In New Orleans, a city steeped in history and culture, luxury knows no bounds. From the moment you step foot into these magnificent establishments, you'll be enveloped in a world of refinement, elegance, and culture. Allow yourself to be captivated by these top hotels as New Orleans welcomes you with open arms with charm that will linger in your heart long after you depart.
