  1. Awesome list. I cam speak of Bienville House Hotel review. We went for a romantic weekend in New Orleans last year, and I must confess, this hotel cant be bettered in anyway. Their staffs are friendly and helpfull. We had a 4th floor terrace room which was so fabulous. Breakfast was awesome. It’s a great location for all attractions.

  2. It’s a good detailed catalog of destination places one can find in New Orleans. I’ve never been there myself but I am kind of brows up now.

    You have clearly exhausted the places where one should be especially in the coming festivities, am sure people who read this content, and your overall website will not be short of ideas to go retreat with their families during Christmas. 

    Keep on writing on other cities too, as you’ve been doing and probably shed more light on Africa too. 

  3. New Orleans is such an amazing lively town. Finding a great place to stay in a walkable location has always seemed like the best way to enjoy the city. This is a lovely collection of penthouse rentals in some great neighborhoods. Thanks for sharing the information about how many people could stay at each place and the average cost per person – this absolutely makes for a perfect fun trip with friends!!

  4. Thank you! Really great article. Always glad that there’s another article from your website. Wow, Windsor Court hotel is really nice with that pool. I like the Tulane Avenue penthouse on the inside, as well as the huge downtown penthouse on the inside. These are all really nice and luxurious. I like the format of your articles, how you always format them in a similar way so it’s easy to follow for return visitors. Thanks for inspiring me to travel and have a great day!

  5. I’m very excited to stay at the Bienville House Hotel when we visit New Orleans. The fifteenth-floor penthouse looks awesome too so maybe we’ll stay a couple of nights in both during the visit. I would love to know if you have a personal favourite or one that you would recommend?

  7. Traveling is one thing and getting a real place to stay is another. New Orlean is among one the many cities I intend to visit after me retirement and I must confess a good place to stay in such nice environment would just be the best anyone can ask for. So far i have had problem with high rents but these one seem really cool considering the standard of these penthouses. Nice being here.

  8. Windsor court hotel actually offers all these services and great luxury for that cheap price? That is definitely one of the lowest amount I have seen such luxurious top notch places to charge for what they offer. An experience in this place would really be a thing that would last a lifetime with me. Such beauty and serenity. I like every place listed here as places to stay in new Orleans. If I ever visit new Orleans and I have the cash with me, I would try my best to stay in any of these.

  10. I’ve been going to New Orlean all my life and I didn’t know that some of these hotels existed! I usually stay with my uncle, but I might have to get my own room next time I go. These are all so beautiful it will be hard to choose which one I want to stay in. Thank you for being so specific with the locations!

  11. Thank you so much Adnin for this post. Truly speaking finding a right place to stay in New Orleans can be a challenging task. My friend and his newly married bride went there for their honey moon sometime last year and they really had a tough time locating a cool spot to stay. I wish they had access to this post before that time. 

    i am planning on having my honey moon there next year. I like the Bienville House Hotel. What do you think?

  12. You provided an excellent list of places to stay in New Orleans. Last time I was there was some years ago, love the French quarters and these properties look good. Spacious luxury penthouse caught my attention with 4 rooms looks really good for family travel or larger groups. It is also near city center attractions. Huge downtown penthouse is the other that caught my attention. 19 persons? Wow, that is huge. I was wondering if there really is 19 beds in this penthouse? Now, I need to find a reason to visit New Orleans.

  13. What an awesome list of penthouses. I just love New Orleans I have been many times over the course of the last 35 years. I got engaged in the middle of Bourbon St so the town and the people will always be special to me.Bleinville I can tell you is absolutely beautiful on the inside. Stayed over a weekend and would definitely recommend it.

  14. Thanks for sharing these penthouse reviews. I was browsing for future US destinations and came across your reviews. New Oleans was one destination we had considered before. Anyway, it has given me the idea to ask around my friends to see if there might be some interest from them to take a New Oleans weekend vacay as a group, and we can consider staying here at one of the penthouse suggestions you have given us depending on how many friends are interested. I much appreciate your post! 

  15. New Orleans is such a wonderful city and every time I am there it seems there are new corners and delights that I had missed on previous visits. The night-life is loads of fun and the food is to die for. The only way I can think of to make it an even better experience would be to stay in one of the places that you have highlighted in this post.

    The prices are reasonable and the locations ideal, most definitely since I have come across your wonderful website my eyes have been opened to the best way to experience these storied places, as New Orleans most certainly is. Of the options listed, I like the Bienville House Hotel best, and the price is very good. Added to my growing list thanks to you!


  16. Thanks for this list of places to stay in New Orleans. I am actually planning a trip right now and I’m trying to find the right place to stay when we go as I’ve never been before. I’m really liking the huge downtown penthouse as we are a large group and it’s right downtown. It looks really nice and well furnished.
