Check Out Ten Places To Stay in Uptown New Orleans

View as Map

The majority of New Orleans hotels are clustered in the French Quarter or Central Business District, so what happens when one is on the hunt for Uptown accommodations? That's where this handy map comes in. After scouring the mean streets of Uptown, here are ten properties that range from a historic Thomas Sully-built St. Charles Avenue residence now operating as a bed and breakfast, to a Lower Garden District inn with a stunning courtyard and clothing optional saltwater pool, to yes, even a couple of chain hotels. If we missed your favorite spot, don't hesitate to tell us via email or in the comments section below. Just because Hotels Week 2014 is coming to a close doesn't mean we're packing up the hotel coverage 'til next year. Any hotel development scoop, hotel switcheroo news, and general tidbits of information are always appreciated.

1146 Constantinople St
New Orleans, LA 70115

This place has been in the b&b biz for 28 years, so they're probably doing something right here. The five rooms vary in size but all have private entrances and private bathrooms. Perk alert: parking is free.

2. Maison Perrier

4117 Perrier St
New Orleans, LA 70115

The ratings are pretty spectacular at this b&b, a Victorian mansion that dates back to 1892. Rumored to have once been a "gentleman's club," the rooms are named after the ladies who may have um, entertained here back in the day. There's free parking, a fully stocked honor bar, and complimentary wine and cheese on Friday and Saturday evenings.

A mansion dating back to 1883, The Columns is just as much a bar and hoppin' brunch spot as it is a 20-room hotel. Those willing to pay the price should try to score room 16, which has floor-to-ceiling windows that open to a private balcony.

4. Hampton New Orleans St Charles Avenue
