The Higgins Hotel New Orleans, Curio Collection by Hilton 

If you’re in NOLA to visit the excellent National WWII Museum, keep things super convenient and stay right next door at the stylish, WWII-themed Higgins Hotel.

The sophisticated Higgins Hotel promises a connection with history. From the moment you step foot into the atrium lobby, you’re transported to a place inspired by the war era, with 1940s Art Deco styling. It’s a fitting approach given its location right next door to New Orleans’ National WWII Museum. The interiors are nostalgic and thoughtful without being gratuitously themed. Over 200 guestrooms feature nods to the WWII era in their artwork and furnishings, yet don’t lack the modern essentials. Expect large flatscreen TVs, fast Wi-Fi, and in-room tablets pre-loaded with city and hotel information. Rosie’s on the Roof, the Higgins’ rooftop bar, honours the women of WWII in its styling. It’s the perfect location to unwind with a pre-dinner cocktail overlooking the CBD area of New Orleans before heading down to Café Normandie, the hotel’s French restaurant. Come morning, Provisions, the Higgins’ lobby marketplace, is a handy place to pick up a coffee and pastry before a day exploring the museum, or further afield.
