Story of Our Building + Neighborhood

The Mercantile New Orleans hotel is a refined all-suites boutique hotel located in the heart of the historic Warehouse/Arts District in New Orleans, Louisiana.

When we say ‘refined,’ we mean it. Our beautifully restored historic building started life as a sugar refinery in the late 1800s. Today we offer spacious, stylish rooms with fantastic views of the city and Mississippi River.

The Arts and Warehouse District is the cleanest and safest New Orleans neighborhood in walking distance to the best attractions such as the French Quarter, Convention Center, cruise ship terminal and more.

As our neighborhood experiences a rebirth, The Mercantile New Orleans Hotel puts you in the heart of that excitement. When it comes to exploring, there are plenty of sights and sounds to experience within minutes of our doors.

Into history? The Arts and Warehouse District is home to fantastic museums. The National WWII Museum (best-rated attraction in New Orleans on TripAdvisor) and the Memorial Hall Museum are neighborhood icons.

It’s also home to some of the Big Easy’s most iconic restaurants, including Emeril Lagasse’s newest restaurant, Meril, and John Besh’s award-winning flagship eatery, August.

If you’re looking for a little more casual fare, we’ve got that, too. Tackle the Croque Monster, a massive grilled cheese sandwich at St. James Cheese Company for lunch, enjoy the best Mexican food and tequila in the city at El Gato Negro right across the street or dig into a charcuterie plate over at Cochon Butcher.

The Mercantile Hotel New Orleans is a three-minute walk to the New Orleans Convention Center, the cruise ship terminal, Harrah’s Casino and the Outlet Collection at Riverfront – an enormous mall featuring shops from all your favorite national retailers.

We are near the final stop of the Riverfront streetcar, which is a fun and inexpensive way to explore Mississippi Riverfront attractions. It will take you to famous places like the French Market and Frenchman Street in historic style.
