Planning a couple’s getaway to the Big Easy? The most romantic hotels in New Orleans pair luxe accommodations with a charming French-Southern setting. 

Book your travel to New Orleans with Fora and you’ll get access to VIP perks at all the best hotels in New Orleans for couples, plus a bevy of expert travel recommendations, itinerary ideas (like our New Orleans 3-day itinerary) and more.

The 5 most romantic hotels in New Orleans


The most romantic hotels in New Orleans are mostly found in the city’s center, but also in trendy up-and-coming neighborhoods like the Warehouse District and Marigny. Read on to check out five of our favorite hotels for couples.

1. The Windsor Court: a luxurious four-star hotel near New Orleans’ waterfront

Just across the street from Harrah’s Casino and only a few blocks from the waterfront, you’ll find The Windsor Court. 

Here, a rather unassuming exterior hides an ornate interior that blends classic Southern charm with modern decor. Every spacious room in the hotel features a quiet balcony with romantic views of the New Orleans skyline or the Mississippi River. 

Live jazz can almost always be found in The Polo Lounge, or you can check out the heart of New Orleans’ nightlife in the surrounding Central Business District and Bourbon Street, which is only a few blocks away ( it’s also a great choice for a New Orleans girls’ trip).

Check in with a New Orleans trip planner — aka Fora Advisor — to learn more about The Windsor Court, which can be found in NOLA’s Central Business District.

2. Hotel Peter and Paul: an 1800s church-turned-hotel in a historic New Orleans neighborhood

Before it was turned into one of New Orleans’ most romantic hotels, the Hotel Peter and Paul was a historic church, rectory, convent and school. Now, each of these gorgeous buildings features an elegant, eclectic theme — much like New Orleans itself — and lavish accommodations.

The Hotel Peter and Paul is in Marigny, just east of the French Quarter and one of the best areas to stay in New Orleans if you’re looking for a quieter neighborhood (although Frenchman Street can get quite rowdy during Carnival Season).

3. The Ritz-Carlton New Orleans: an exceptionally luxurious boutique hotel for couples on Canal Street

Found on bustling Canal Street in the Central Business District, The Ritz-Carlton New Orleans occupies a historic Beaux Arts building dating back to the early 1900s. Here, you can enjoy a couple’s massage with a Voodoo twist at the in-house spa, listen to live jazz at the Davenport Lounge or indulge in classic NOLA cuisine at M Bistro.

Arguably the swankiest and most romantic boutique hotel in New Orleans, The Ritz-Carlton also features opulent decor and oversized rooms and suites for exuberant comfort. 

When you connect with Fora, an advisor can offer more details, as well as answers to all your travel questions, like how many days in New Orleans are best, or when is the best time to go to New Orleans.

4: The Roosevelt, Central Business District: one of the most storied & romantic hotels in New Orleans

Featuring the famous Blue Room, where legendary musicians like James Brown and Ella Fitzgerald have performed, The Roosevelt is one of New Orleans’ most iconic hotels. 

What makes The Roosevelt one of the most romantic hotels in New Orleans? A rooftop bar overlooking the city, a sumptuous spa, a variety of fine dining options inspired by local cuisine and easy access to many of New Orleans’ best attractions and sights.

You’ll find The Roosevelt, named after former President Theodore Roosevelt, in the Central Business District, barely a block away from the French Quarter. And since The Roosevelt is a Waldorf Astoria hotel, your advisor can unlock Hilton Impresario perks for you at no extra cost. 

5. Maison de la Luz, Warehouse District: the best hotel for couples in New Orleans’ Warehouse District

One of the most unique places to stay in New Orleans, the Maison de la Luz emphasizes the city’s vibrant culture with ritzy decor for an experience that’s as glamorous as it is stimulating.

While the hotel’s unassuming, industrial-chic façade is right at home in New Orleans’ Warehouse District, the interior is stunning and artful. Every room is meticulously designed for elegance and intimacy. The Maison de la Luz is a grand choice for romantic New Orleans lodging.
