Visitors to New Orleans looking for understated luxury and close proximity to world-famous Bourbon Street will be delighted to stumble across the Hotel St. Marie. This boutique hotel is a bit on the smaller side, with just over 100 traditionally decorated rooms with a French Quarter atmosphere that can’t be missed.
The tropical European-style courtyard and pool are a great place to relax at the end of the day and the Vacherie Restaurant and Bar is the perfect place to unwind with a glass of wine. Many of the rooms overlook the French Quarter so this is the place to be for those looking to be in the center of everything.
