When planning a trip to the Big Easy, one of the first questions one asks is “Where should I stay?” A quick search and dozens upon dozens of options come up. Just as there are no shortage of choices when it comes to hospitable lodgings and hotels in New Orleans, there’s no lack of stories to tell about them either.
Beginning as modest boardinghouses in the late 18th century, through the grand hotel days, to the modern conveniences of today, hotels have always been an integral part of life in New Orleans, reflecting the history of the city throughout the ages. Some of these events would go on to impact the landscape of the entire country.
Writer and travel journalist Paul Oswell brings to life all the successes, failures, triumphs and tragedies of many a celebrity, politician, jazz musician, pirate, soldier, and more. Follow along as he checks in to the New Orleans hotels of the past and present to learn more about the influence of the city’s hospitality industry, or as a guide to planning a future visit.
