This four-diamond, historic French Quarter luxury hotel situated in the heart of what Conde Nast Traveler’s 2013 Reader’s Choice Awards praises as “a magical city,” raving about its culture, atmosphere and restaurants, and declaring it has, “the best food in the U.S., with live music around every corner.” With full renovations completed only this year, classic iron balconies remain while modern amenities have been added to support more style and ease. There is no place with as much jazz, pizzazz, and razzmatazz as can be found from this Omni location in the heart of The Big Easy.
