About the Hotel

Find us in the Warehouse/Arts District, next to The National WWII Museum. We’re the official hotel of the museum, and our staff is on hand to share their knowledge and help you purchase tickets. Bourbon Street is within a mile, and we’re seven miles from City Park. Our hotel features a rooftop bar with views of the Bollinger Canopy of Peace. Art Deco inspired rooms stylishly and warmly reflect their connection to the Greatest Generation. All rooms are on the 3rd floor or above and some have downtown New Orleans city views, while others face the Crescent City Connection Bridge or our quiet courtyard.  Each guest room has a 55 inch HDTV, desk, coffee maker, mini-refrigerator and walk-in showers.
