When it reopened for business in late 2011, this 27-story tower was the last of the major hotels to come back after Hurricane Katrina. But it did so with a bang—a full renovation of all rooms and reimagining of the off-street entryway as a modernist concert hall, complete with grand piano. The hotel complex is both attached to and dominated by the nearby Louisiana Superdome, which fills one of the huge atrium windows and provides a self-contained world for event-minded guests. The new rooms have all the expected amenities (fluffy robes, in-room iron, iPod docking station) and a spare, modern decor that would seem more at home in downtown Houston than the Crescent City. A minimalist black-lacquered desk/minibar combo sports an Internet-enabled flat-screen TV; a matching armoire in the entryway gets paired with a faux alligator-hide dressing bench. The 32nd floor fitness center sits atop the tower, giving commanding views of the city as you clop along on the treadmill.—Pableaux Johnson
