A Family Fling in New Orleans at Le Pavillon Hotel

August 16, 2006 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Le Pavillon

This New Orleans gem is straight out of the Gilded Age. Situated in the heart of the city, adjacent to the French Quarter, Le Pavillon is a grand historic hotel dating from 1907. A member of Historic Hotels of America, Le Pavillon is the recipient of the AAA four-diamond award, and was named to the Conde Nast Traveler Gold List 2006. Each of the hotel's guestrooms is individually decorated, featuring special antiques, such as the hand-carved wooden fireplace mantle in Suite 730 (circa 1600's), Full Tester Bed in Room 316 (what the New Orleans aristocracy slept on in the mid 19th century), and Marble Bathtub, Palace Suite 730 (once owned by Napoleon Bonaparte). The hotel's rooftop—with heated swimming pool, fitness center, hot tub, sun deck and private cabanas—offers spectacular views of the city. In the evenings, Le Pavillon treats its guests to a long-standing tradition: freshly made peanut butter and jelly sandwiches alongside ice cold milk and piping hot chocolate served in the magnificent lobby at 10 pm. This is the perfect hotel for a family getaway, and with so many things for kids to enjoy in the Big Easy, Le Pavillon has put together an excellent Family Fling Package. Starting at $499 per night, the package includes two nights accommodations for four in a two-bedded guestroom, daily breakfast, complimentary parking, passes for admission to the nationally heralded Audubon Zoo, and a copy of 101 Things for Kids to do in New Orleans.
