Here’s The Scoop
When we stayed at the Henry Howard Hotel as tourist we really felt as though we were experiencing true New Orleans. Not the iconic but typical Bourbon street party vibe, but what is truly New Orleans life. The old world nostalgia of the architecture combined with the luxury amenities and modern design is almost exciting. The staff is so pleasant and knowledgeable; they made us feel (and wish) that we were at home. Though it is not standard, we highly recommending requesting a tour of the property. This history of the Henry Howard Hotel and the surrounding area is fascinating. We cannot wait to visit the Henry Howard Hotel again.
