Le Pavillon, a Piece of New Orleans History
Glamorous and grand, the reimagined Le Pavillon Hotel greets guests with a new, lavish design embracing its rich, storied past. Revealing classic luxury reimagined through dramatic enhancements, Le Pavillon Hotel offers a premier experience in a coveted location, recognized as a ‘Top Hotel in New Orleans' by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler. The hotel originally opened its doors in 1907 as Hotel Denechaund, later renamed the Desoto Hotel in 1913, and Le Pavillon was the name that stuck in the 1970s. Once housing the first New Orleans radio station, WDSU, in the penthouse, Le Pavillon Hotel's greatest tradition is tied to the sense of hospitality that is presented from the moment of arrival, enduring long after departure and enticing return.
