So much to see, so little time!
Have you ever watched the sun go down and the sky change colors atop the glistening Mississippi River? It’s a pretty amazing sight. So are countless other New Orleans sights–like the Warehouse District, Jackson Square, and Audobon Park. Lucky for you (and us!), there are a handful of hotels that provide prime viewing spots so you can take it all in at once. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorites for you.
Rooftop decks are usually signs of good times ahead. And rooftop pools definitely kick it up a notch. There’s no better place to take in the beauty of the Central Business District skyline than from the deck and pool at Le Pavilion. Bonus: Location! It’s near the French Quarter and many fun tourist sites.
The Westin New Orleans Canal Place
Major viewing alert at The Westin Canal Place. You’re in for a treat when you head up to their rooftop pool and bar, which face the beautiful New Orleans waterfront. There are many magical moments to catch at sundown by the Mississippi River, or from staring into the Business District skyline from your room.
Loews New Orleans Hotel
Riverfront views, amazing service, and one of the best locations in New Orleans make the Loews New Orleans Hotel a very strong option. We love not having to pay premium prices for a river view, because at this spot, most rooms have it. This hotel also makes for a great stay when in town for business.
Le Meridien New Orleans
City views or river views–we just can’t make up our minds. Le Meridien may be stunning inside, but it’s the playful contrast of the vistas that give it that extra something. When the city lights up at night, it’s a sight to behold.
