The bar in the Columns is a great place for cocktails anytime. The atmosphere could not be any better. Happy hour specials are great.
The front porch is a perfect place for lunch or brunch.
We didn't stay in the hotel this time but we have in the past and it was equally romantic.
A must when visiting New Orleans.

Didn't stay here but rode the street car out from downtown for lunch. Ended up staying all afternoon, sipping traditional New Orleans cocktails on the covered front porch while a gentle rain fell through the live oaks in the front yard. It was like being transported to another time. The food and cocktails were delicious and the service was very attentive. Definitely worth a visit or a stay!

Hit this hotel bar for Happy Hour specials. Half off some appetizers and super cheap house wines and bottles, including bubbly. If possible, sit outside and just watch the people and the street cars roll by. It was a very relaxing environment. We like to try new places, but would prob go here again when we return to Nola.

We stayed here as part of a wedding room block and had such a great time. Molly is so incredibly kind and helpful. The 2nd floor balcony is the perfect place to spend time catching up and relaxing! The rooms are not very big, but that is to be expected. It is certainly not the fanciest place in town, but has a wonderful ambiance and is walking distance to lots of attractions.

Take the St Charles Streetcar to the Peniston stop for lunch or afternoon Pims or Prosecco, and sit on the front porch. The Charcuterie platter was a great choice for a sharing snack. A lovely way to spend an hour or two away from the hubbub of the French Quarter.
