By Isabella Sandoval
Every Ace Hotel is unique to the city it is located in. No property looks the same and the Ace Hotel New Orleans embraces the art, music, and food of the Creole heritage. The hotel walls are covered in local art, while local musicians entertain guests at the live music venue, 3 Keys, inside the hotel.
HERE’S THE SCOOP
Ace Hotel New Orleans bleeds New Orleans soul and has a spectacular rooftop bar and pool that boast views of the New Orleans Skyline. The historical building, in its day, used to house local musicians. While giving a nod to the past, the guestrooms carry a musical theme throughout with armoires hand-painted by local artists.
GET THE DISH
Ace Hotel New Orleans is home to two restaurants. Seaworthy, is a seafood restaurant while the oysters are most popular by guests and locals alike. Josephine Estelle is also a local’s hot spot! It was by far our favorite brunch spot on the entire trip. They also have pasta made from scratch that’s not to miss on your next visit!
