There is so much to love about New Orleans, but a few must-dos while visiting the Big Easy include enjoying warm beignets at Café du Monde, taking in a jazz band, or solo musician in a small, darkened nightclub while sipping on a Sazerac cocktail and riding the streetcar. Of course, taking the city in from your own spacious suite with a balcony is the icing on the king cake – just don’t forget your beads. To get you started, here are a few of our favorite suites in New Orleans – bookable on Culture Trip.
When it comes to hotels with suites in New Orleans, the Bourbon Orleans Hotel is just as famous for its ghosts as its central location in the French Quarter. But ghosts will be the furthest thing from a guest’s minds once they throw open the French doors of their two-story Bourbon Balcony Suite and take in the sounds of jazz saxophone wafting up from Bourbon Street below. Other featured suites include the St Ann Balcony Loft Suites and French Quarter Loft Suites – ghost sightings not guaranteed.
With panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows on two sides of the living room – and all of New Orleans at your feet – life is good in the King Suite, located on the 16th floor of the Troubadour hotel. When it comes to New Orleans hotels with suites, the Troubadour is located in the burgeoning Central Business District – making it close to the action of both the theater district and French Quarter, but still far enough away to get some rest once the party’s over. This suite’s elegantly eclectic style includes an art deco-meets-1970s vibe.
Housed in a 19th-century building, the St James Hotel New Orleans exudes Southern charm and welcome. In fact, the St James’ suites are not only pet-friendly but also family-friendly – something visitors researching New Orleans hotels with suites won’t always find. And, while its French Quarter location means guests are close to the city’s jazz scene and Cajun and Creole cooking, the hotel’s intimate courtyard and outdoor pool are ideal for some quiet time.
With more than 1,000 guest rooms – including 95 suites – the Hyatt Regency is one of the most centrally located hotels with suites in New Orleans. Just minutes from Caesars Superdome, Champions Square, Smoothie King Center, the French Quarter and Mississippi Riverfront, the Hyatt Regency New Orleans makes an ideal basecamp for sports fans, music and art lovers, history buffs and culinary crusaders.
Maison de la Luz is a self-described “place for reverie and proper Southern swoon, for prophetic visions or quiet inspiration.” To that end, this distinctive new guest house is home to 67 resplendent suites, private sanctuaries and bespoke concierge service. The sumptuous private living room at Maison de la Luz is a stately lounge where guests can enjoy nightly wine and cheese – or visit the honor bar to sip an expertly crafted cocktail.
