New Orleans is a romantic city. If rekindling or stoking the flame of passion is your goal, selecting the hotel is an important part of the process. The city has endless accommodation options, but a few choice properties reign supreme.
What is it that sets these properties apart? Enchanting rooms, first-class service, top notch spas, skyline views, classy dining and architecture are all on the checklist for couples making their New Orleans hotel decision for a weekend of romance. The rooms at the Windsor Court are designed for luxury and comfort, newly renovated and loaded with extra amenities and upgrades. The Hotel Monteleone has views of the city that are matched by few. The spa at the Ritz-Carlton is one of the country's best. And the seclusion of the Audubon Cottages makes anybody feel like a rock star.
If you want to up the ante, arrange in advance for champagne to be chilled and waiting, a nosegay of flowers on a vase by the bed and maybe even set up a couple's massage at the spa. The city, with its picturesque streets meant for strolling, cheek to cheek dancing opportunities and wide array of intimate bars and restaurants, will do the rest.
