Fathom Favorites : New Orleans

1. Hotel Peter and Paul

Hotel Peter and Paul

Set in a historic 19th-century compound that once consisted of a church, rectory, schoolhouse, and convent, the 71-room hotel has a refreshing grown-up vibe that feels different. Rooms are decorated with gingham fabric in rich hues of red, blue, green, and yellow (a palette of colors derived from 14th-18th century religious paintings); baroque-style wood furnishings; and simple white linens.
