Scene

Trendy, artsy upscale hotel in a former warehouse

The Renaissance New Orleans Arts Hotel is a beautiful, modern, funky hotel housed in a former warehouse. The common spaces are large, bright, and airy. Art is infused into the whole property, most of it of a vibrant, modern aesthetic. The lobby has beautiful multicolored glass chandeliers hanging above the reception, while a large, bright, Americana-themed mosaic hangs behind the desk. An indoor sculpture garden on the second floor is designed to look like it's outdoors, with a carved path, lots of greenery, and an atrium-style ceiling that allows sunlight to pour in. The hotel also has a meeting room that it uses as an art gallery. The hotel draws a mix of business and leisure travelers, and offers amenities to attract both, including a business center.

There is room for a workspace as well as a reading chair. Rooms come with flat-screen TVs, coffeemakers, and iPod docks. Bathrooms are bright and clean, but simple, with shower/tub combos stocked with Aveda bath products.
