Occupying a beautiful mid-19th century church and schoolhouse, the upmarket Hotel Peter and Paul sits in the exciting Faubourg Marigny neighbourhood of New Orleans.
Rooms are split between the original schoolhouse and the former convent, whilst the church itself has been restored and transformed into an impressive event space. From former classrooms to sleeping lofts under the eaves, no two guestrooms are alike. Interiors offer a mix of vintage aesthetics and up-to-date amenities - think antique European furniture, locally made fittings and a colour palette derived from 14th-18th century religious paintings. Select rooms also offer cast iron claw-foot bathtubs or private balconies.
Frenchmen Street is a mere two blocks away and home to some of city’s finest restaurants, bars and jazz clubs. But Peter and Paul itself is home to an impressive food and beverage offering. Partnering with New Orleans’ pioneering wine bar Bacchanal, the stylish Elysian Bar on the ground floor of the old rectory building treats diners to deliciously inventive cuisine and classic cocktails.
