Overview

Within walking distance of the French Quarter and other top sights
Some rooms have no windows

Originally built as a warehouse in 1854, this boutique hotel is located just south of the infamous French Quarter in New Orleans. Its ideal location was a highlight for recent guests. Several visitors said they were able to walk to many of the Big Easy's top attractions, including the Louisiana Children's Museum and the French Quarter's jazz clubs and restaurants. If you'd rather explore the hotel's culinary offerings, you'll have two options. The Old No. 77 Hotel & Chandlery is home to Compère Lapin, a restaurant blending Caribbean and Gulf flavors, and Tout La, which offers fresh pastries, coffee and more. If you need to work off all those beignets, make use of the hotel's on-site fitness center. When it comes to accommodations, rooms feature exposed brick walls and neutral decor, plus free in-room Wi-Fi access, beds with pillow-top mattresses and Lather bath toiletries. However, previous guests found a few disappointments with their digs, noting that several rooms have no windows and that noise from Lafayette Street was a nuisance. Visitors were more impressed with the customer service at this property.

In each of the 167 rooms is a minimalist design with hardwood floors, an antique writing desk and exposed-brick walls, plus even more edgy local art (like, in one room, a hand gesture on top of a field of daisies).

Much of the hotel still retains historic elements from the building's 19th-century past, including brick walls, wood-plank floors, and exposed piping. Mid-century design details and original art by local students adds even more character.

Location & Parking

This boutique hotel is located in a 19th-century coffee warehouse in the Port District, just a few blocks from the French Quarter.

Situated between the Warehouse Arts and business districts, it’s a convenient location for both business and leisure travelers, and the hotel itself boasts an art gallery, with a rotating exhibit in the lobby of works by art students from the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts.
