Why Stay At Windsor Court Hotel
Just two blocks from the French Quarter, the centrally located Windsor Court Hotel is a NOLA institution that combines traditional luxury with impeccable (yet low-key) service.
The 324-room Windsor may rise high above the Central Business District, but don't expect all work and no play here. After a $22-million restoration that added a distinctly French allure to the classic English-inspired digs, the hotel is swinging again in more ways than one. Jazz bands serenade crowds in the Polo Club Lounge and museum-worthy sculptures, paintings, and tapestries line the lobby and halls, making the hotel easy on the ears, the eyes, and, thanks to the elegant Grill Room, the stomach. Guest rooms are appointed with Italian marble bathtubs and modern touches such as iPod docking stations. Another highlight: the gracious, helpful staff is as sweet as the city's famous pecan pralines.
Equal parts hotel and living art museum, the Windsor Court is home to an $8-million collection that includes works by Flemish Baroque painter Anthony Van Dyck and French-born Nicolas de Largillière.
If you're ordering room service, bet on the Reuben, which is reminiscent of a Carnegie Deli sandwich.
Arrive at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY) which is approximately 13 miles from the hotel. Anticipate about 25 - 35 minutes of travel time depending on traffic.300 Gravier Street, New Orleans, Louisiana, United States

Why We Love New Orleans
There's no shortage of culture in New Orleans. Take in the wrought-iron galleries and cobblestoned streets on a walking tour of the Garden District, or help yourself to heaping bowls of gumbo in any of the city's hole-in-the-wall Creole joints.
Where to Eat: Dressed-up Cajun dishes are the specialty at Donald Link's Cochon. Adventurous eaters might like the slow heat of fried alligator dipped in a chili garlic aioli, or the wood-fired oysters served with sweet cornbread dumplings.
930 Tchoupitoulas St.
Where to Drink: At Arnaud's dimly lit French 75 Bar, Chris Hannah, one of the city's most respected bartenders, mixes signature cocktails like the French 75 (champagne, lemon, and cognac) and the 1938 Vieux Carre (rye whiskey, cognac, sweet vermouth, Bénédictine D.O.M., and bitters).
