About

#146 of 177 hotels in New Orleans
Service
A new boutique property in New Orleans, Kimpton Hotel Fontenot offers high-touch service in the heart of the city. The lobby welcomes guests, while the spacious guest rooms - up to 700 square feet - are decorated in neutral tones with soft pops of color. Hotel Fontenot is right at the intersection of everything that makes New Orleans the legendary city that it is: unique architecture, unforgettable food, and nonstop music. Located in downtown’s central business district, the hotel is adjacent to the French Quarter and its many charms, plus walking distance to the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, and the Smoothie King Center. Whether visiting for business or pleasure — or deftly combining the two — the hotel puts guests in the perfect position to explore the best of New Orleans. At the center of the community, that's deeply rooted in a sense of place, Hotel Fontenot's location boasts a packed calendar of events, from poetry and art to music and comedy. By day, settle into a local corner café for specialty coffee and snacks; by night, mingle at the best bars with a taste-making crowd over craft cocktails served from a 19th-century bar. There are social opportunities just outside the doors and around the clock, but when guests are ready to relax, the rooms provide a chic retreat.

Great stay at Kimptons newest arrival Fontenot! Arrived on there grand opening and was completely astonished! Absolutely the best staff in the business. From there door person to hostess a complete first class establishment. My room was generously equipped with an amazing view of the city. Couldn’t recommend this place enough!! Definitely can’t wait to return. On a side note, I had the pleasure to speak with the manager Dixie. I can not say enough good things about this person. The most Kind and helpful Manager I have ever had the pleasure dealing with. Extremely professional!

I have stayed at many hotels all around the globe an I will say this property is second to none!!! We travel to New Orleans and we have found our new home away from home. The staff was very attentive to our needs. The rooms are very comfortable and the views of the city are amazing. Looking forward to our next stay.

This hotel went thru a major renovation and removed the kitchenettes. Breakfast was also eliminated. The new room was nice with a fridge and a microwave. However, housekeeping lacked and never showed up one day and no towels or wash cloths another day. I discussed this with the manager and she compensated me with a refund on 50% of the points I used. The hotel is in a great location with the casino only a short walk away.

Loved the style of the hotel! Currently under construction so obviously not running as smoothly as I’m sure it will be eventually. Staff is very friendly and accommodating also doing the best they can working around the construction. Most of my complaints were only about things that will resolve once hotel is complete.
