Sophisticated Downtown NOLA Hotel

Chic + Trendy Hotel in Downtown New Orleans

New Orleans has been built on a musical legacy equal parts traditional and improvisational — and now, Kimpton Hotel Fontenot is taking a page from that songbook by riffing on the standard Crescent City hotel, creating something contemporary and new. But it still embodies the NOLA spirit and honors the area’s over-the-top style with a few surprises, including the magnificent Peacock Room, an ornate gathering spot filled with a menagerie of prints and patterns. Expect five-star service that’s anything but stuffy, chic design mixed with playful touches, food and drink that satisfies the soul, and an atmosphere that has the chops to impress locals and visitors alike.
