We’re fans of the crisply contemporary Loews, with its judicious sprinkles of New Orleans flavor and the consistently genteel, professional service. The bright, expansive freshly spiffed rooms come with local photography, understated furnishings, and sophisticated finishes in a muted palette. Many rooms have fab river views that are worth the upgrade (others face surrounding buildings). Even the smallest are on the large size, though the handsome wood and granite bathrooms—which still have tubs—are just average). All get access to the steamy indoor pool and well-equipped fitness room, not to mention the persistently fine Café Adelaide (part of the Commander’s Palace family) and the excellent Swizzle Stick Bar.
