The ideal crash pad for a whirlwind break in the Big Easy, Aloft New Orleans Downtown promises comfort, convenience, and a celebratory atmosphere without superfluous frills.

The neon-lit entrance to Aloft New Orleans Downtown sets the scene for the vibe within. When you check-in, there may even be some live music playing in the adjoining W XYZ bar. You’ll be forgiven for not making it up the guestroom before ordering a cocktail and getting into the NOLA swing of things. While the rooms have nothing particularly special to keep you lingering (except perhaps for those with city views), they’re smart and comfortable with fast Wifi. Heading to Bourbon Street? You can walk there in six minutes flat. An outdoor pool on the 11th floor, while small, is a welcome addition for post-sightseeing rejuvenation and before heading out on an evening adventure in the French Quarter. The in-the-know staff can quickly get you up to speed on the latest city openings and happenings. Conceding to the far superior offerings of the restaurants of New Orleans, Aloft makes a wise call to stick to simple snacks and on-the-go items for its onsite food.
