5 Best Boutique Hotels In New Orleans, Louisiana

Updated: April 22, 2021

As one of the most notorious party spots in all of the United States, New Orleans is a beacon of culture and good vibes for all who visit. So, if you are looking for a good time on Bourbon Street, you want to engage in the cajun cuisine, or anything else, New Orleans is the place to do it.

Louisiana is the heart and soul of southern culture. Arguable, New Orleans is the richest (in terms of culture) city in southern America that exemplifies all of those core values.

With so many moving parts, New Orleans can be an overwhelming place, especially for foreign visitors. So, staying in a boutique hotel can help you truly appreciate all that this city has to offer.

Here are five of the best boutique hotels offered in New Orleans!

 

Old No 77 Hotel

The Old No. 77 Hotel

The first spot on our list is the Old No. 77 Hotel. Located in the arts district, you are a short walk away from some great food and art shops. The hotel itself is an old warehouse that has been repurposed into a place to call your short-lived home while in New Orleans. This really makes it feel like you are living in the arts district.

A unique feature that places into the art scene is the commonplace practice of hosting student art exhibits. The New Orleans Center for Creative Arts has a partnership with this hotel to provide some great art pieces.

There are 167 rooms, so it is a bit large, but it was a warehouse, after all. So, keep this aspect in mind when making your decision.

Soniat House New Orleans

Soniat House

This is a bit more expensive than the previous option, and it is because the Soniat House is located in the French Quarter. This is the most popular place to stay in all of New Orleans, so the price is going to be a bit more.

This is where a lot of the culture is packed right into the streets of the French Quarter, so even if you stay somewhere else, you will spend a lot of time there.

Among the 30 rooms available, 11 are suites, and one is an even more elevated and luxurious suite. So, if you want to spend some extra coin, there are plenty of options to upgrade.

Hotel details

Address: 
1133 Chartres Street, French Quarter (Vieux Carré), New Orleans, LA 70116, United States of America.

Guest rating:

The Drifter Hotel

The Drifter Hotel

One of the smaller options tucked into New Orleans is The Drifter Hotel. There are just 20 rooms, so securing a room should be booked in advance as much as possible. The area in which this hotel is located is not in the French Quarter and offers very different features.

So, if you are done exploring the party spots and busy streets, escaping to this area is a great idea. You will be surrounded by very contemporary features like craft breweries and food trucks for your enjoyment.

Again, this is a spot with 20 rooms, so you are going to get a quiet, personable experience. For many people, this is exactly what they want out of a boutique hotel, especially in a city as busy as New Orleans.

Address: 
3522 Tulane Ave, New Orleans, LA, USA.

Guest rating:
4.4 out of 5

Price per night:
From $119

Hotel Peter & Paul New Orleans

Hotel Peter and Paul

New Orleans is a city that millions of outsiders travel to every year. So, the hotspots can get super busy, especially at certain times of the year. Staying at Hotel Peter and Paul, you will escape those heavily-traveled areas and get a more authentic feel of the culture.

Faubourg Marigny is the neighborhood in which this hotel is located. Although it still neighbors both downtown and the French Quarter, it is far quieter and less traveled by outsiders. So, you can have that quiet experience, but you will still be engulfed in all that New Orleans has to offer.

There are 71 rooms, so it is on the big side, but the idea still stays the same. You are getting a different experience than staying in the popular areas, but you still have quick access to them.

Hotel details

Address: 
2317 Burgundy Street, New Orleans, LA 70117, United States of America.

Guest rating:
4.7 out of 5

Price per night:
From $135

Ace Hotel New Orleans

Ace Hotel

The largest option on our list is the Ace Hotel. To round out our options today, this hotel has 234 rooms and encompasses a lot of values that New Orleans is known for. The rooms are beautiful, the lobbies are inviting, and the Three Keys is where you can get your nightly entertainment. This is an actual music venue located in the hotel.

So, you can live it up to New Orleans style without being right in the middle of the action, rather experience it in-house and travel out when you want to.

Hotel details

Address: 
600 Carondelet Street, Arts – Warehouse District, New Orleans, 70130, United States of America.

Guest rating:
4.3 out of 5
