Creole Gardens Bed & Breakfast Hotel (1415 Prytania St., (866) 569-8700)
When exploring the grounds of the Creole Gardens Bed & Breakfast, it becomes evident that this is a hotel that embraces guests with true New Orleans relaxed spirit. The hotel hosts an array of individually themed suites, ranging from soothing Caribbean cottages to the Storyville themed bordello rooms. The artwork found throughout the hotel consequently reflects this fresh, eclectic attitude. Portraits of local personalities, mixed media pieces, vintage festival posters, and quirky clocks span the walls. The majority of works come from local artists, such as Manfred Pollard. Resembling Goya’s Los Caprichos series of satirical etchings, Pollard’s whimsical black and white drawings are exhibited in the main mansion’s dining room. In addition, Creole Gardens celebrates the city’s musical pulse by displaying archival prints of photographs by Charlie Steiner. Steiner was known for documenting rock legends of the 1960’s, and his depictions of Little Richard and Janis Joplin smile at guests as they embark on their next New Orleans adventure.
