New Orleans’ Most Boutique Hotel

I read about all the new boutique hotels that have been opening up around New Orleans, both before the pandemic and afterward, they are all interesting, but they are nothing like the original, which is La Belle Esplanade.  La Belle Esplanade is New Orleans’ most boutique hotel.

We’ve been around a long time so we’ve seen fads come and go.  This is just another example of people who have more money than we do trying to do what we do and make a profit off of it.  I can’t blame them.  I’d do the same if I wanted to constantly expand the business while watering down the quality.  A 75-room hotel in an old orphanage is considered boutique.  You can get lost in a place with 75 rooms.  La Belle Esplanade has five suites.  You will never get lost in the shuffle.

New Orleans’ most boutique hotel is a B&B hotel.  No, not an AirBnB.  La Belle Esplanade is a tiny boutique hotel run by two people.  If you want to know what it is like to live in a colorful mansion on Esplanade Avenue, La Belle Esplanade is New Orleans’s most boutique hotel right out the gate.

Your home in New Orleans.

With only five suites, availability is limited.  Only a lucky few can stay at La Belle Esplanade during any given year.  Why is gold valuable?  Because there is a limited supply.  That’s the way it is with the good memories that are made at La Belle Esplanade.  You’ll mint your own while you are here.

A boutique hotel offers personalized one-on-one hospitality.  Anyone can buy a truckload of ersatz New Orleans memorabilia and hang it on the wall.  The smaller the hotel, the closer you are to the owners, and, when the owners are around and paying attention, you know they care about exemplary service.  Now that is both unique and boutique in today’s world.

New Orleans is a world of it’s own.  There is tourist New Orleans and then there is the authentic New Orleans, where we live.  You can make your New Orleans headquarters in the real New Orleans.  Visit like you belong here.  La Belle is a short stroll away from the major tourist activities, but far enough away so that our neighborhood is quiet and full of serendipitous occasions that can only happen in the authentic New Orleans.  Everyone is friendly and everyone will be happy to have you in the neighborhood.
