Built in 1927 and named after the Count de Pontchartrain, a member of Louis XVI’s court, The Pontchartrain Hotel is a New Orleans treasure. Perched proudly on St. Charles Avenue in the legendary Garden District, this historic 14-story hotel has welcomed Hollywood stars including Tom Cruise, Nicholas Cage, Naomi Campbell, ZsaZsa Gabor, Frank Sinatra, Ronald Reagan, and Walt Disney, as well as prominent New Orleanians such as famous author Anne Rice, Sears and Roebuck heiress Edith Stern, and Frankie Besthoff, whose family co-founded the K&B drugstore chain..
The Pontchartrain was lovingly and comprehensively renovated to preserve the iconic ambience of the hotel’s golden era, while simultaneously imparting a sense of comfort, luxury, and style that appeals to modern travelers. Our spacious, beautifully decorated suites, outstanding amenities, and unparalleled location in the center of historic New Orleans have rendered us one of the city’s premier full-service hotels.
We invite you to experience the timeless elegance and modern comfort of The Pontchartrain Hotel.
