Listen to Track 4 - the St. Louis Hotel (above). The St. Louis Hotel used to occupy the site that is now the home to the Omni Royal Orleans Hotel.

Directions: Stand in front of the Napoleon House restaurant at the corner of St. Louis and Chartres Streets, looking down Chartres Street toward St. Louis Cathedral. Just past the Omni Royal Orleans Hotel loading dock, note the five archways to the right with the word “CHANGE” faintly visible above the first of these arches. This façade is all that remains of the St. Louis Hotel; the current hotel’s structure was built in 1960.
