NOLA with Old 77 Hotel & Chandlery
Incase you missed it on Instagram, a few weeks ago my gal pal and I decided to go to New Orleans for Galentines day!! We stayed at Old 77 Hotel and Chandlery and had one of the best weekends. A little challenging throwing 2 allergic reactions, cancelled flight and the flu in the mix but that didn’t hold us down. As you can see we definitely celebrated in style. We were welcomed with the cutest goodies and knew automatically it was going to be a great stay. From check in to check out the staff, door man and baristas were nothing short of exceptional! We checked in right in time to attend the WhereYArt opening in the gallery! Needless to say we wanted to take just about every piece home with us!
Old 77 Hotel and Chandlery Is a warehouse-turned-boutique-hotel located in the Arts and Warehouse District. I just LOVE a hotel with unique characteristics, ESPECIALLY brick accents! The whole stay we just swooned over the industrial vibe featuring hardwood floors, exposed brick walls and unique art. Another noteworthy feature is that the hotel is home to one of New Orleans’ most critically acclaimed restaurants, Compere Lapin, owned by renowned Chef and Top Chef runner up, Nina Compton. We started every morning at Tout La with the most amazing coffee and pastries to get the day started. Not to mention another bonus about the hotel is the location. Located in the French Quarter we were able to walk almost everywhere, only took one Uber the whole trip!
There are several major events throughout the year (usually involving music, food etc.), but any given day in The City can be quite an experience. Our trip happen to fall on the weekend Krewe Du Vieux in preparation for Mardi Gras and that was definitely a experience! From the historic French Quarter to the revamped Warehouse District to the beautiful Garden District, there is no shortage of places to enjoy a fantastic meal, craft coffee or most importantly the beignets…(we may or may not have gone to Cafe Du Monde three times.)
