Escape to…The Old No. 77 Hotel & Chandlery | New Orleans, LA

An unconventionally historic New Orleans hotel, the Old No. 77 Hotel & Chandlery the latest incarnation of a building that began its life in 1854 as a warehouse serving the Port of New Orleans. Built in the heart of New Orleans’ bustling port district just steps from the French Quarter, it served as a coffee warehouse before being purchased by E.J. Hart & Company who operated a chandlery, or general wholesale business, trading in everything sailing ships needed to stock their voyages – from canvas and rope to paper, tobacco and patent medicines.

The Victorian-era coffee warehouse has traded its humble industrial interiors for an elevated look that screams hipster chic. Just three blocks from the French Quarter, the pet-friendly hotel also houses Compère Lapin, a buzzy Latin bistro headed by Top Chef alum Nina Compton.
