Historic 19th century site that consists of four buildings — a church, rectory, schoolhouse and convent — which has been transformed into an elegant hotel that includes 71 guest rooms. The property also features a rotating retail space, a unique meeting and events area located within the restored church, and distinctive
The rectory & church were designed by noted New Orleans architect Henry Howard. All four buildings were restored and converted by studio WTA. The color palettes common among iconic religious paintings and tapestries dating back to the 14th-18th centuries in Europe and Africa inspired the hotel’s re-design by ASH NYC. The firm incorporated many of the building’s original features into its reimagined aesthetic such as the cypress wood moldings, stained glass windows, wainscoted corridors, and marble fireplaces. Signature design pieces can be found throughout each building including antique chandeliers, custom rugs handmade in India, and a striking mural depicting a 19th century sitting room located on a stage in the former school house. Furnishings include pieces designed and constructed locally by the region’s finest artisans, as well as antiquities collected from the great art fairs in Europe and several of New Orleans’ finest estates.
The ground floor of the former rectory includes a bar and beautiful public space. The old side chapel houses a café space. The property also offers an outside courtyard ringed by church bell towers.
