Boutique Hotel Find: Henry Howard Hotel New Orleans
Ask any New Orleans resident and they’re bound to agree that there’s much more to their fair city than the tourist-laden French Quarter. Thankfully, for those travelers looking to explore the greener, storybook side of NOLA, there’s stylish addition to the picturesque Garden District’s hotel scene – The Henry Howard Hotel – a boutique property situated in an 1860s mansion built by (and named after) local architect Henry Howard. Originally built in Greek revival style complete with Corinthian columns and a spacious porch fit for whiling away the day, the historic mansion-turned-boutique hotel maintains its truly elegant Southern style. Though, the designers clearly sought to inject a contemporary sophistication into it, including details like the custom Mississippi riverboat motif wallpapers, saxophone artworks perched right above the canopied beds – mixing together design and art elements that create one of the most Instagrammable hotel experiences in the city.
The 18-bedroom hotel offers guests a twist on the classic New Orleans travel experience and the front desk hosts will make it their priority to help fix an authentic NOLA experience or a well-made cocktail on the porch as you watch the world go by, whatever it is you may fancy.
