Hotel Peter & Paul

New Orleans, Louisiana

Hotel Peter & Paul, in New Orleans’ Marigny neighborhood—a joint project of resident Nathalie Jordi and design firm ASH NYC—is unlike any other hotel in New Orleans. For starters, it’s spread out over four historic buildings, including a Catholic church that dates back to 1861. Original features, like stained-glass windows and marble fireplaces, were meticulously restored. The bedrooms on each floor have a different gingham-patterned color scheme, as well as decor that combines history (religious paintings, antiques from European estate sales) and modern-day New Orleans (locally designed furniture). When they’re not in their rooms, chances are guests are visiting the Rectory, a section of the hotel that’s home to the coffee shop, open-air courtyard and bar—run by the team behind beloved wine bar Bacchanal, with a daily happy hour from 3 to 6 p.m. —Stephanie Wu
