Experience Modern History :: The New Jung Hotel and Residences – a New Orleans Hotel Collection
Looking down from the rooftop pool deck, the skyline is so much of what we love about New Orleans: the street cars gliding down Canal Street, the twinkling lights against the night sky, the classic Saenger Theater just a short distance away and faint sounds of laughter and revel from folks who are headed towards a good time.
The Jung Hotel and Residences is no stranger to history and in fact, has quite the story to tell. As early as the 1920’s, this hotel became well-known for its entertainment and opulence. Throughout the decades of 21st Century, the decorated walls of The Jung Hotel have held memories of comfort and enjoyment providing an inviting setting for guests, including the turbulent eras of the Great Depression and World War II.
We were so excited to enjoy a much needed retreat with our team for the weekend, but we had little idea just how lovely the experience would be. Every little detail was felt upon arrival from the incredibly helpful staff to the classically modern décor and get this – even though it isn’t Mardi Gras, the hotel pastry chef made King Cake for guests to enjoy at check-in. Now, THAT is the way to welcome a guest! As soon as the golden elevators open, you are taken to a place of elegant designs, calming colors and high-end amenities. Oh and the BEDS … because that’s an important part of the experience, right? They were so heavenly! This hotel truly has it all including a coffee bar, fitness center, restaurant and rooftop pool. Another element that was appreciated, was the security of the building because everything is accessed with a room card so coming in and out of all areas of the building is monitored and feels safe. Throughout our weekend, we got to dip into the the beautiful rooftop pool and utilize the event space and meeting rooms. Put this on your list if you’re planning an event or a wedding … the options are truly endless and iconic for creativity here! I can only imagine how stunning wedding pictures would look in this hotel. We loved this entire experience including the superior service of the staff down to the subtle touches of bathroom mirrors (yes, your makeup is going to look awesome!), doorbells on the door, plenty of in-room space and the LOCATION.
We are thrilled that the The Jung Hotel and Residences is now proudly apart of the New Orleans Hotel Collection, a locally-owned company that revitalizes some of New Orleans most historic hotels. How can we not love a fresh spin on a historic venue that embodies leaving its guests with “a lasting welcome that makes itself felt even after you have left the hotel?”
Without a doubt, a true staycation is in the future because we can’t wait to go back to experience it all again!
