In a city known for weighing in on the side of excess, a day of pampering can be a lifesaver. New Orleans is home to a range of day spas and other places to relax and rejuvenate, some housed in luxury hotels, others locally-owned in neighborhoods from Uptown and the Marigny to Mid-City and the French Quarter. Whether you have all day or half an hour, need a facial or a full body massage, or simply want to treat yourself, these spots will leave you refreshed and pampered.
