Stay Near Historic French Quarter

Want to check out the vue from Vieux Carré, aka the French Quarter? At Kimpton Hotel Fontenot, we’re close to all the action of one of the country’s most vibrant and historic neighborhoods. Here, family-owned antique stores and restaurants that date back 100 years mingle with the omnipresent beat of jazz and go cups filled with neon drinks. It’s a full sensory experience: Hear the clip-clop of horses pulling carriages, smell the sweet scent of freshly made pralines, see the wrought-iron railings that characterize the balconies here, and taste Creole classics like seafood gumbo and spicy boiled crawfish. Don’t miss Bourbon Street, famous for its raucous revelry — you’ll never go thirsty here — and Royal Street, a picturesque stretch lined with fine art galleries, historic landmarks, indie gift shops, and street buskers. Just outside the French Quarter, Frenchmen Street is teeming with live-music venues; stop by Snug Harbor, the Spotted Cat, d.b.a, Blue Nile, and Three Muses.
