The Renaissance Arts Hotel


Art house: The Renaissance Arts Hotel

Among properties leading the rebirth of the city’s hospitality industry is the Renaissance Arts Hotel on Tchoupitoulas Street in the city’s Warehouse Arts District.

Near the New Orleans Convention Center and the French Quarter, the 201-room, 3-year-old hotel owes its arty atmosphere to a gallery, sculpture gardens and a collection of works by Dale Chihuly, Lyn Emery and others. On site, the property’s La Cote Brasserie features great New Orleans cuisine prepared by chef Chuck Subra.

The Renaissance Arts Hotel has nine meeting rooms comprising more than 5,000 square feet (the largest, Patrons, has a capacity for 441 people).
