In New Orleans, no two hotels are alike. This is especially true for boutique hotels, which include unique room designs, custom finishes, and curated spaces. Book a stay at one of the following hotels and enjoy your home away from home.

Stephen Kent Johnson, Maison de la Luz

An elegant overnight stay like none other can be found at the Maison de la Luz. Bespoke toiletries and bedding along with several other custom amenities are all standard in their luxury rooms and suites. The property is also home to Bar Marilou, an equally elegant craft cocktail lounge with speakeasy seating that features a separate bar area for hotel guests only.

This 75-room boutique hotel is located in New Orleans' Lower Garden District. The Magazine Street one-time orphanage has been transformed with a refreshed design concept that plays on its original build. Original wrought-iron gates complement its opulent color palette and rich textures. Saint Vincent's amenities include multiple restaurants and bars, lush public spaces, an interior courtyard with a Saltillo enclosed swimming pool, private event space, and outdoor verandas.

Virgin is known for its over-the-top, avant-garde approach to life, and their New Orleans hotel is no exception. Expect bright pops of color, quirky design features, and whimsical nods to both Virgin founder Richard Branson's home country, as well as New Orleans. The interiors were done by local design group Logan Killen, who also owns Sunday Shop–so if you find yourself wanting to snatch up some of the interior elements for yourself, make sure to swing by their Magazine Street boutique.

Christian Harder, Hotel Peter and Paul

Located inside of an old church and schoolhouse in the Marigny, Hotel Peter and Paul is full of unique flair and a one-of-a-kind atmosphere. Choose from a stay in the schoolhouse, rectory, or convent—no two guest rooms are the same. And their on-site restaurant and bar, The Elysian Bar, is well-known for their seasonal menu and stellar cocktail offerings.

Housed along the historic St. Charles Avenue, the Pontchartrain Hotel makes for the perfect girls’ trip stay. This Garden District gem comes complete with plenty of backdrops ideal for photo ops, like the rooftop bar Hot Tin and their in-house restaurant Jack Rose. Pro-tip - the Pontchartrain is a great option for a Mardi Gras rendezvous as it sits right along the Uptown Parade route.
