Welcome to The Windsor Court Hotel The Windsor Court sets the bar in luxe yet eco-friendly boutique hotel experiences. Although they love their thriving French Quarter neighborhood and all the rowdy excitement that Vieux Carré has to offer, they relish having people step into their stylish living room where tantalizing secrets and luxurious indulgences await. A white marble fireplace anchors this social space marked by a daring array of textures and finishes (plus two dog effigies). Guests linger here, sharing tales as they sip scotch or a glass of wine. Inside this landmark building, the Windsor Court Hotel’s gaze continuously threatens the boring and enchants the curious.

Rules of the Hunt New Orleans has many historic landmarks and fun places to visit! Take a picture in front of each of the places in the coloring book, then stop by the front desk and show your pictures for a fun prize.

1. Windsor Court Hotel An elegant escape in the heart of a legendary city, Windsor Court Hotel offers the quintessential four-star New Orleans experience. The Crescent City’s crown jewel, Windsor Court Hotel is committed to classic luxury with contemporary comforts by providing unmatched elegance and luxury with superior service and grace. Developed by James “Jimmy” Coleman, Jr. in 1984, and bought by The Berger Company of New Orleans and Crow Family Holdings in 2009, all 316 of the Windsor Court’s guestrooms offer private balconies or bay windows with Mississippi River or city skyline views. Onsite amenities at the palace include the on-the-go eatery Café Anglais, fine dining fare from afternoon tea to weekend brunch, a cocktail lounge featuring live jazz, a 65-foot saltwater pool with the cabana-style Waterman Poolside Bar, and a full-service, luxury spa.

2. French Quarter One of the city’s most historic neighborhoods, the French Quarter is considered to be the Crown Jewel of New Orleans. Its timeless landscape is represented by artists, writers, and performers living side-by-side with businessmen, street urchins, restaurateurs, and descendants of French aristocrats. The area's architecture has an eclectic mix of Greek Revival and Creole edifices that include castiron balconies, courtyards with fountains, and grand arches. One of the most desirable districts in NOLA, the French Quarter fuses the macabre and the beauty–where the voodoo of fortunetellers on Jackson Square meet the butter-crème-colored walls of St. Louis Cathedral, reflected by the magic of its fiery sunset.

7. Steamboat Natchez When the New Orleans Steamboat Company launched the Natchez in 1975, they revived more than a famous name. They created one of only two true steam-powered sternwheelers plying the Mississippi today. The Natchez combines the best of contemporary construction, safety, and comfort standards with all the authenticity and style of her classic steamboat gothic predecessors. Resembling the sternwheelers Virginia and Hudson in her profile and layout, the Natchez is the pride of the Mississippi River and is as beautiful as any of her namesakes. Many of her crew have been with her since her maiden voyage. True to tradition in every detail, boarding the Natchez makes you feel as if you have entered another era. As the Natchez glides past the French Quarter and through one of the world's most active ports, you begin to understand the magic of the experience. For all its history and romance, the excitement of riding a steamboat is as real and rich and genuine now as it was a century ago.

9. St. Charles Avenue Streetcar Rumbling down the middle of St. Charles and Carrollton avenues for over 150 years, the St. Charles Streetcar has become a symbol of New Orleans’ charm and romance. The dark green St. Charles streetcar is the world’s oldest continuously operating streetcar line. Vintage streetcars built by Perley Thomas Company still run along a 6-mile crescent from Carondelet at Canal Street in the Central Business District through Uptown New Orleans’ oldest and most majestic section, around the Riverbend to Carrollton at Claiborne Avenue. Swaying along St. Charles Avenue through a tunnel of Live Oaks, the streetcar passes dozens of antebellum mansions, Loyola and Tulane universities, Audubon Park, and hotels, restaurants, and bars.

11. Spotted Cat Jazz Club

The Spotted Cat Music Club is the Quintessential Jazz Club of New Orleans. Located on the famous Frenchmen Street in the heart of the Marigny District, "The Cat" has been recognized as an international destination for JAZZ music. Numerous movies, commercials, and print media have filmed and written about "The Cat" for its outstanding music and unique ambiance. Opened in 2000 as a club for local musicians, it initially struggled to bring in customers, but after surviving Hurricane Katrina and numerous changes in ownership, the club is now a staple of Frenchmen Street.
