The Pontchartrain Hotel



A GARDEN DISTRICT GEM: The legendary Pontchartrain Hotel reclaims its place as the ne plus ultra classic New Orleans hotel.


Located in the Garden District of New Orleans, adjacent to its charming streetcar route, the Pontchartrain Hotel is a one-of-a-kind full service luxury New Orleans hotel. This historic circa-1927, 14-story architectural gem, provides modern luxurious amenities, minutes away convenience, and old school home away from home attention to all your needs.


A sanctuary where both visitors and locals mix it up, the re-imagined Pontchartrain offers four restaurant and bar options, including a breathtaking-view new rooftop bar and lounge. Whether you are looking for a transportive vacation, in town for a business affair, or here for an extended stay, the Pontchartrain is an only in New Orleans stay, providing comfort in a city that prides itself on making everyone feel at home.


In the lobby is the Bayou Bar with music, a cafe frequented by many locals, The Jack Rose an excellent award-winning restaurant with its mile high pie, and the roof top bar Hot Tin with wonderful views of the city. (Get it – Hot Tin like hot tin roof.)


The hotel is right there on St. Charles Avenue where it’s easy to catch a streetcar and get to the Quarter or heading uptown where you can eat at the many wonderful restaurants along the way or visit Audubon Park and its excellent zoo.
