About two weeks ago, I headed to New Orleans for work. I have my "go to" hotels and always choose which part of town to stay in depending on my mood. If I am wanting a smaller hotel with local flare, I opt for the Hotel Provincial on Chartres in the French Quarter. I love it's quaint, Southern charm. If I want to stay in a big chain hotel (love those points), I choose the Renaissance Pere Marquette on Commons. I love it's swanky, modern vibe! However, for this trip, I was wanting to check out a new a new hotel. Part of Marriott Hotels and opened only six months ago, The Saint Hotel is my new favorite! One of Marriott's Autograph Hotels, it is unique and one of a kind. Boasting contemporary design coupled with local influences, it has such a lovely atmosphere. I so enjoyed my time in this lovely place! The designer brilliantly played with scale and proportion, as you can see from the pictures below.
