The Mercantile New Orleans hotel is an all-suites refined boutique hotel located in the heart of the historic Warehouse/Arts District in New Orleans, LA (the cleanest and safest neighborhood within walking distance to French Quarter, Casino, Convention Center and Cruise Ship terminal).
‘Refined,’ in this sense, has more than one meaning. Our beautifully restored historic building started life as a sugar refinery in the late 1800’s. Today we offer spacious, stylish rooms with fantastic views of the city and Mississippi River.
The Warehouse/Arts 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.
It is a neighborhood experiencing 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.
Are you a big history buff? The Warehouse/Arts 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.
If you are looking for a little more casual fare, there is lots on offer in the Warehouse/Arts district. 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 attractions like the French Market and Frenchman Street in historic style.
