Award Winning Boutique Hotel in Downtown New Orleans

Amid the rising tide of so many new projects in the CBD, the Catahoula Hotel is a small one that feels like it’s been here all along.


The Catahoula Hotel is a 35-room boutique hotel in downtown New Orleans, located near the French Quarter and the Superdome. Originally built in 1845, the hotel resides in a restored Creole townhouse nestled on a quiet side street in the Central Business District.

Our philosophy is simple: keep it casual, cozy, and above all, human. The Catahoula Hotel’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 we simply couldn’t have it any other way.


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.

More than just a Hotel

Piscobar & Rooftop bar

Our goal is to expose our guests to Peruvian cocktail culture in an environment where you can’t help but enjoy yourself.  We care about our cocktails and go to great lengths to make sure they are interesting, fresh, and yes, even exciting.  We want to offer New Orleans something truly unique.

The backbone of the cocktail program is pisco, a Peruvian liquor made from grapes. Pisco’s history goes back 500 years and is the cornerstone of many important classic cocktails. What makes it so special, though, is how it is produced. Every drop of liquid in a bottle of pisco came from a grape, and nothing else is allowed. This level of purity is unheard of for a spirit category, and for that reason making pisco is truly an art form, and an exciting opportunity for us at the Catahoula.

Private Events

Catahoula Hotel features two unique spaces for private events: a third-floor Rooftop Terrace and a garden-level Café and Courtyard. The venues at Catahoula Hotel each feature a full cocktail bar and make the perfect location for a milestone celebration, corporate reception, or wedding ceremony and reception.


Piscobar Kitchen

Piscobar Kitchen is located inside the Catahoula Hotel and serves up powerful, plant-based flavors from traditional Taiwanese comfort foods–think fresh market vegetable stuffed dumplings and gochujang braised eggplant–through a 100% vegan lens.
