Top 10 Hotels for Mardi Gras
Le Pavillon Hotel
Regal ambience welcomes guests at this historic hotel in the Central Business District.
This hotel stands out with its opulent formality. A doorman wearing a top hat and white gloves greets guests as they step into the entry portico adorned with imposing columns. The high-ceilinged lobby of the narrow building has an Old World air, with its lavish furnishings and live piano music. Far from being stuffy, though, the hotel has a sense of humor about its own excess. Every night guests help themselves to a spread of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches set out on silver trays and chocolate milk cooling in Champagne buckets.
The property dates back to 1907 when it opened as the DeSoto Hotel. Its guest rooms (some quite small) and suites are done in a range of sophisticated styles, from classic European to sleek Art Deco. House restaurants include the Crystal Room, serving French cuisine with regional influences, and Le Gallery Lounge, offering small plates, wine and cocktails. Of note is the attractive rooftop pool area with beautiful views. Elegant meetings spaces include the clubby Poydras Board Room for small executive gatherings. Room service is available round the clock.
