New Orleans' Lower Garden District welcomes its latest destination, Hotel Saint Vincent. Housed in a landmark 1861 building, the hotel fuses the original 20th-century Italian architecture with mid-century and art deco elements to create an eclectic atmosphere full of modern opulence and grandeur. In its 75 rooms and suites, gray walls are a moody backdrop for jewel-toned furniture and rich velvet textiles, while bathrooms provide a contrast with vibrant tiles and custom Voutsa wallpaper. The property also hosts two restaurants, a guest-only lounge, a ByGeorge shop, and a lush courtyard enclosing a guest-only Saltillo swimming pool and bar.
