A timelessly beautiful Beaux-Arts style building located just a few blocks from the French Quarter, International House has enjoyed three major incarnations as a local institution and international destination. In 1943, this stately 12-story building was transformed into "International House", literally the first World Trade Center in the world. In 1998 it became New Orleans’ first boutique hotel. Forward looking but instantly familiar, this International House was a design icon from the jump, heralding a bright new time in New Orleans and honoring its role as both local institution and international destination today. International House is a joyful tribute to New Orleans today - an ensemble of historic architecture, colorful characters, cheerful culture, signature food and local music unlike any other city in America. Once the first world trade center in the world, our downtown New Orleans hotel offers 117 guest rooms, suites and penthouses, as well a destination bar and popular restaurant. It also includes Entrepreneurs’ Row, a modern conference center with meeting spaces for promising start-up companies fueling New Orleans’s economy. It is a forward-looking hotel, alive with the energy of New Orleans today - a creative culture of invention that has gifted the world legendary music, seeded the nation's finest kitchens and nourished a joyful quality
of life.

The hotel lobby is one of those moments. With soaring 23' ceilings, ornate pilasters and intimate groupings of furniture, the lobby glows in tones of carnelian and opulent antiqued velvets. Candles and seasonal wild flora transform a Senegalese bench into a sacred altar, hinting at the ritual and religiosity that flavor New Orleans’ mysterious character. Elevators open to reveal an alluring Adonis and Venus mosaic by Bisazza, and the interplay between bar, restaurant and hotel enlivens the space in which Pagano seems to tap effortlessly into the sensuality, magic, mystery and elegance of this place. The result is a soulful and inventive expression of New Orleans style.
