Boutique Charm in the Historic Heart of New Orleans
Inn at the Old Jail
Inn at the Old Jail is an award-collecting modern guesthouse built into a national historic landmark in Tremé, New Orleans. The city’s most elegant Queen Anne Victorian was originally home to an NOPD police jail & patrol station, then a library, then a community center, then abandoned ruins of Hurricane Katrina. Completed in 1902 as an overnight lockup for neighborhood offenders and juvenile delinquents, our jailhouse has been impeccably restored into a boutique guesthouse with nine unique rooms and beautifully appointed common spaces.
