Henry Howard Hotel
Henry Howard Hotel—the 150-year-old mansion designed by famed architect Henry Howard—has been restored and opened to the public as an 18-room luxury boutique hotel. Located one block from the St. Claude streetcar line in the Garden District, it has distilled New Orleans charm to its essence. Rooms are accented with second-line instruments (there might be a sax hanging above your bed or a snare drum serving as a side table) and blue toile wallpaper printed with images of local icons such as Louis Armstrong and the steamboat. And it doesn’t get any more NOLA than sipping a Lemon-H (fresh lemonade, bourbon, and Herbsaint) in one of the wicker chairs on the front porch as the world marches by.
