The Eliza Jane

This post was originally published on this site

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.

A closer look at the front desk with painted paneled walls, built-in bookshelves. a decorative fireplace, and a framed sketch of a figure evocative of Eliza Jane.
A fluted glass partition separates an intimate lounge area adjacent the front lobby from the main public space.
