This city has an expansive, palpable soul. The atmosphere carries a strong self-assurance - a tangible hope and grit of a resilient people. We’re new but we’ve already fallen in love with the city of New Orleans.
Here’s A Little Local History
New Orleans is a rare city as much as it is legend. Beginning its history as a small town located between two lakes and a mighty river, the cultural fabric has blossomed into a rich mosaic that can’t be replicated anywhere else in the world. Even better? It’s home to the jazz capital of the world.
The Ace Hotel hangs its hat at 600 Carondelet within a stunning 1928 Art Deco building. There’s something to do at every corner, as this luxurious little stay is hosted right within the rich, vibrant Warehouse District. This historic nine-story building stood until the mid 1970s as Barnett’s Furniture Store as a family business and the city’s first importer of Scandinavian furniture.
The area surrounding the Birthplace of Jazz has been a melting pot long before its founding. However, one thing has stayed - the ability to reinvent itself. The city’s resilience, can-do attitude, self reliance have been pillars of the community long before the Industrial Revolution.
Now, it boasts a tenure as one of the world’s most cosmopolitan cities, been ground zero to some of the country’s most complicated tragedies, and has given us more unique American inventions than anywhere else. In these ways, it is perhaps a city living out the elusive concept of the American dream more than any other.
