The LGBT community is a critical part of the melting pot that is the city of New Orleans. In order to help show our inclusive nature, the city has launched a ‘welcoming sticker’ program for businesses to showcase in their windows. While many businesses in the city have begun to hang these symbols of inclusivity, hotels are helping lead the charge, as they are the first touch-base in the city for most LGBT visitors. Although not an exhaustive list of hotels displaying the NOLHA welcoming sticker, we decided to highlight some of those that were pioneers of this program.

This historic hotel with tons of old world charm is located right in the middle of the Quarter. The St. Pierre is just a few blocks from the center of LGBT nightlife in the city - the corner of St. Ann and Bourbon Streets.
