Hotel Monteleone

$$ | French Quarter landmark since 1886

This beautiful, historic hotel in the heart of the French Quarter has been a favorite since it opened in 1886. A lot has happened since they opened their doors and many characters have stayed at the hotel or just stopped by for a drink. This was the favorite hangout of many literary greats, from William Faulkner to Tennessee Williams, many of whom wrote the historic hotel into their stories that took place in New Orleans. In fact Truman Capote loved this place so much that he could often be found in the Carousel Bar boasting that he was born in the hotel. While his mother did in fact live in the hotel while she was pregnant with him, he was actually born in a nearby hospital. Speaking of the Carousel Bar, this slowly rotating bar that has been made one revolution every 15 minutes for over 65 years is where the Vieux Carre cocktail was invented. Over the years a few guests and employees never left the building, making this one of the most haunted hotels in the city. Guests have reported sightings of many former employees, William “Red” Wildemere, a guest who died in the hotel, as well as Maurice Begere, a toddler who died in his room. When the International Society of Paranormal Research visited in 2003, they made contact with over a dozen beings.

Henry Howard Hotel

$$$$ | Historic mansion beautifully reimagined

This Lower Garden District mansion was built by the famed architect Henry Howard in 1867.

This greek revival-style hotel was beautifully restored and impeccably designed for its grand opening in 2016. Its location puts you between the shops and restaurants on Magazine Street and the St. Charles Streetcar line.
