Named the Eliza Jane after a pioneering publisher, this new boutique hotel just two blocks west of the French Quarter is full of historic influences.
Manhattan–based interior design firm Stonehill Taylor has converted a row of 19th-century warehouses in New Orleans into the The Eliza Jane, a boutique hotel elegantly dressed in homage to the area’s cultural and architectural heritage.
The seven different buildings that have been combined to create the 196-room property have led diverse former lives. Prior tenants include The Daily Picayune newspaper, the Gulf Baking Soda Company, Peters Cartridge shop, and the Peychaud Bitters factory.
An elegant lobby welcomes guests with evergreen paneled walls and a geometric hex-tiled floor from Nemo Tile + Stone.

A fluted glass partition separates an intimate lounge area adjacent the front lobby from the main public space.
The 60-foot-high atrium floods the lobby and Press Room bar with natural light, while lush plantings and a Havwoods parquet flooring soften the original exposed and slate-colored plaster walls.
Exposed brick walls can be seen in the Premium King Suite, which overlooks views of Magazine Street.
The elegant bathrooms are finished with white beveled subway tile, marble countertops and brass Kohler fixtures.
