New Orleans Hotel Collection Opens the Audubon Cottages

Feb 21, 2013

The New Orleans Hotel Collection has opened the Audubon Cottages in the city’s French Quarter. Following a multi-million dollar restoration, the seven cottages reflect old New Orleans charm in a historic setting.


Named in honor of painter and naturalist John James Audubon, the Audubon Cottages were originally built shortly after two large city fires in the late 18th century. The cottages surrounded what is believed to be the French Quarter’s oldest pool—set in original brick and surrounded by foliage.


With one- and two-bedroom suites, the cottages offer historic Creole décor in various palettes and tones. Private brick lined patios surround the saltwater pool, which is accessed through an avenue of ancient crepe myrtle trees. 


Each cottage offers a unique history. The two-bedroom suite in Cottage One was the residence of Audubon, who lived there while completing his “Birds of America” series from 1821 to 1822. Cottage Two boasts hardwood floors and a private courtyard with its two-bedroom suite. A known favorite of Elizabeth Taylor, Cottage Three includes a private courtyard with a fountain, antique furnishings, and a brick faux fireplace in one of the bedrooms. 


Cottage Four, noted for its rumored hauntings by a music-playing soldier, also includes a private courtyard as well as a balcony overlooking the pool. Cottage Five features a faux fireplace, a crystal chandelier, hardwood floors, and French doors opening up to the semi-private courtyard. The one-bedroom cottages include Cottage Six, with a semi-private courtyard, and Cottage Seven, which was used as Audubon’s studio.
