Welcome to the Catahoula Hotel, a hideaway in the heart of New Orleans. Originally built in 1845, the Catahoula is a restored Creole townhouse nestled on a quiet side street in the Central Business District, just blocks to the French Quarter, the Superdome, and the street car lines.
Our 35 hotel rooms are all unique and offer simple, relaxed comfort and respite. Each room has been thoughtfully considered for the modern traveler, yet historical charm resonates throughout.
To us, an experiential hotel means high design and exceptional service; where guests are offered more than just a beautiful room, but a highly personalized stay. The Catahoula is the lens through which you experience New Orleans, and we relish the opportunity to showcase its charms.
The Catahoula's Cafe/Bar is a lively coffee shop by day and imaginative pisco bar by night. Local chef Dana Honn of Carmo Restaurant, has designed a versatile menu of Peruvian small plates featuring both ceviches and sandwiches and lead barista Eric Goldberg provides a coffee program committed to offering the best quality beans and techniques. Award-winning bar director, Nathan Dalton, has planned an innovative drink menu which highlights the Peruvian liquor, pisco, as well as our take on the local New Orleans classics and some surprising experiential drinks. All of this can be enjoyed in the main parlor, adjoining courtyard or rooftop terrace.
Our philosophy is simple: keep it casual, cozy, and above all, human. The Catahoula’s style of hospitality is not flashy or exclusive, nor is it predictable or contrived. This historic property was once a home and that is what drives our ethos – to welcome guests as we would someone into our own home, to care for them and do whatever it takes to ensure their time with us is as memorable as possible.
It’s old-fashioned maybe, but it’s what we look for when we travel, and we simply couldn’t have it any other way.
