    The 10 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 our favorite hotels for couples.

    1. The Windsor Court (Downtown): 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).

    Connect with a New Orleans trip planner — a.k.a. Fora Advisor — to learn more about The Windsor Court, and why it’s one of the best hotels in New Orleans for couples.

    Fora Perks at Windsor Court Hotel:

    • $100 hotel / resort credit.

    • Breakfast daily.

    • Upgrade & extended check-in/out whenever possible.

    2. Hotel Peter and Paul (Marigny): 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 (Downtown): 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 New Orleans (Downtown): 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 romantic (and iconic) hotels. 

    What exactly 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. 

    Fora Perks at The Roosevelt New Orleans:

    • $100 hotel / resort credit.

    • Breakfast daily.

    • Upgrade & extended check-in/out whenever possible.

    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.

    Fora Perks at Maison de la Luz:

    • $100 food / beverage credit.

    • Breakfast daily.

    • Upgrade & extended check-in/out whenever possible.

    6. W New Orleans - French Quarter: an artful, intimate & conveniently located hotel

    A relatively new romantic hotel in New Orleans’ French Quarter, W New Orleans is a stylish and colorful retreat conveniently located near the heart of Downtown. Guests have the luxury of being only a few blocks away from Bourbon Street, Canal Street, Jackson Square and the waterfront. Location-wise, it doesn’t get much better. 

    As for W New Orleans itself, all the rooms are vibrantly decorated with local art and an eclectic theme that feels very much at home in a city known for its oddities. Couples can enjoy lush and private courtyard gardens, burlesque brunches at the onsite 3rd Block Depot Kitchen and Bar and more.

    • Breakfast daily.

    • Upgrade & extended check-in/out whenever possible.

    7. Virgin Hotels New Orleans (Warehouse District): an endlessly stylish hotel that blends contemporary whimsy with classic NOLA ambiance

    If you’re looking for that perfect balance between unique and trendy, choose Virgin Hotels New Orleans. 

    Like all Virgin Hotels, the decor here is exceptionally bold and fashion-forward, but in a way that still pays homage to its locale — the NOLA influence is undeniable, and in many ways, staying here makes you feel like you’re staying in a time capsule from New Orleans’ future, rather than its past.

    The vibe is inherently youthful, making it arguably the best romantic hotel in New Orleans for young couples (not to mention, a fantastic option for a New Orleans bachelorette party).

    Fora Perks at Virgin Hotels New Orleans:

    • $100 resort / hotel credit. 

    • Breakfast daily. 

    • Upgrade & extended check-in/out whenever possible. 

    8. The Eliza Jane (Downtown): an elegant, contemporary hotel in the Central Business District

    The Eliza Jane in Downtown takes a completely different approach to reimaging classic New Orleans decor, blending the elegance of the city’s Roaring 20s era with a trendy industrial chic style. The result is decidedly contemporary — yet you wouldn’t know it from the outside, as the façade feels right at home in New Orleans’ historic Central Business District. 

    While the vibe here is much more laid-back than the lively Virgin Hotels New Orleans, travelers who desire an intimate space may prefer The Eliza Janes to the formers’ party atmosphere. Both hotels are fantastic choices if you’re looking for a touch of romance in your NOLA hotel, of course — it comes down to preference (and we’d be happy to help you choose). 

    9. Four Seasons Hotel New Orleans (Downtown): a luxurious romantic retreat for the discerning couple

    Featuring an elegant, minimalist design (a rarity in New Orleans) and unbeatable access to the waterfront boardwalk, the Four Seasons Hotel New Orleans offers uncompromising luxury for discerning couples. 

    The hotel is located at the southernmost tip of Canal Street, granting guests awesome window views of either the Mississippi River or the New Orleans skyline. In fact, the only place that offers better views of the city is literally atop the same high-rise, the Vue New Orleans, which doubles as a contemporary art museum.

    Connect with Fora to plan and book your stay at the Four Seasons Hotel NOLA, and to learn what makes it one of New Orleans’ most romantic hotels.

    Fora perks at Four Seasons Hotel New Orleans:

    • When you book Four Seasons through Fora, you will enjoy exclusive Four Seasons Preferred Partner benefits. Your advisor will be pleased to give you more details.

    10. Maison Perrier New Orleans: a quaint, romantic inn in the heart of the Garden District

    The Maison Perrier is a tiny boutique hotel in New Orleans’ Garden District, far from the hustle and bustle of the luxe hotels of the downtown area. The vibe is homey, quiet and intimate — a plus for travelers seeking a private romantic getaway. 

    Staying here feels like stepping back into the late 1800s, long before New Orleans’ swing era.
