The obvious appeal of these slightly smaller penthouse hotel rooms is the handsomely furnished private terrace, offering outside lounge seating, southwestern sunsets and city views. True to New Orleans style, there is a handmade element woven into the interiors. Local artist Erica Larkin’s hand-crafted bedside tables and totem inspired café tables are topped with honed Calacatta gold. Modern electronics from Sharp Aquos flat-screens are juxtaposed with a seating area that includes not only iconic black and white photographs by legendary Herman Leonard but also an "LM Chair”, designer Lisa Marie Pagano’s original chair-and-a half. The substantial California king bed, with its 7' tufted headboard and layers of white linens, is animated by Modern Fan Co.’s slow-moving "Flute" fan. Generous bathrooms feature a handsome white pedestal, elegantly beveled mirror and unusual vanity light dressed in cascading strands of Swarovski crystal. The closet is thoughtfully customized, a feature which like the terrace makes these New Orleans hotel rooms among the more popular for extended stays.
