The formidable, luxurious Windsor Court Hotel has held the imaginations and hearts of travelers since it opened in 1984. Recently updated rooms—part of a larger $22 million renovation—debuted in January 2012, and they could have been decorated by your aristocratic aunt. Thick, custom magnolia curtains, toile footstools, cream marble countertops, and playful aviary lamps pull you into a proper Southern parlor. The only hotel with Forbes Four Stars and AAA Four Diamonds Awards in Louisiana, the hotel's rooms drip with luxury and charm. Molton Brown bath products, jazz in the lobby, complimentary valet, and a well-trained staff complete the experience. And Windsor’s culinary team—Chef Drew Dzejak, Pastry Chef Shun Li, Sommelier Sara Kavanaugh, and Mixologist Christin Jeanine Nielson—pamper guests with high-end cuisine and drinks.
