8 Reasons We Can't Wait to Staycation at The Fontenot

We're patiently-impatiently waiting for the Kimpton Hotel Fontenot to open its doors in the CBD. The breathtaking boutique hotel has draws that go beyond the guest rooms, outfitted with custom embossed wall coverings, French accents and Atelier Bloem bath amenities. The gorgeous Peacock Room—with its bohemian mix of art, vintage carpets, crystal fixtures, velvet upholstery, and real (stuffed) peacocks—beckons for an afternoon aperitif, dinner or nightcap. Corner café Gospel Coffee and Boozy Treats will be stacked with NOLA-inspired breakfast tacos, pastries and buzzy treats like Mexican hot chocolate with mezcal. Stay tuned to social for an official open date—we're giddy with anticipation.
