    About the Area

The Heartbeat of New Orleans

Naturally, you’ll want to set out and see the whole city. But lucky for you, some of the very best things are right outside our door. At Hotel Vinache you’re right on legendary Canal Street. Steps from famous Bourbon Street. Next to the bustling CBD (the Central Business District). And in the heart of the historic French Quarter (or the Vieux Carré if you’re fancy). If you’re ready for New Orleans, we’re ready for you.

Canal Street

Parades, shopping, theaters. Once upon a time you could find lavish department stores such as Godchaux’s, the Maison Blanche and D.H. Holmes, but now you’re more likely to find small boutiques, some of the oldest theaters in the country, and Mardi Gras parades and festive hotspots.

Bourbon Street

Iconic bars, music on every corner, perennially celebrating…something. Stretching for 13 blocks from Canal Street to Esplanade Avenue, bearing the name of the French royal family ruling in 1721 not the spirit, Rue Bourbon is full of life, energy, color, and excitement. It’s hard to say what you’ll find in the dim glow of neon lights here. But you’ll leave feeling revived.

CBD (Central Business District)

A business district may not sound all that exciting, but in New Orleans, nothing is ordinary. Industrial streets formerly lined with cotton, sugar, and rice warehouses are now where you’ll find award-winning bakers and chefs, trendy restaurants, beautifully restored theaters and Broadway shows, boutiques, museums, and galleries.

The French Quarter

New Orleans’ most historic and possibly most famous neighborhood dates back to 1718. But that doesn’t mean it’s frozen in time. Modern boutiques and artisanal cocktails blend beautifully alongside antique shops and iconic French architecture and elegant ironwork balconies. You’ll find everything from voodoo temples to markets. And maybe even a horse-drawn carriage clopping by.
