An ornate Beaux Arts building marks the spot for this divinely inspired address which opened on Canal Street in December. Inside, an ethereal theme takes guests from a heavenly all-white reception desk with two cherubs poised overhead, to a red bordello-style bar that would seduce even the saintliest of souls. The lobby has a custom-made, turquoise-felt pool table; the walls are lined with vintage photos; and large bell-shaped chandeliers hung throughout contribute a modern, design-focused feel.
The Saint, 931 Canal Street (001 504 522 5400; thesainthotelneworleans.com). Doubles start at $209 (£139), room only.
