The New Orleans Hotel & Spa's idiosyncratic, eclectic vision offers a perfect modern alternative to the institutional approach one now finds in even the most high-end boutique design hotels. We are one of the most spirited and charming hotels in Eureka Springs, reflecting a historic heritage and the lively, adventurous spirit of an emerging age.
A great hotel is not just a building, it is an individual, with personality, spirit and authenticity.
Established in 1892.
In the gay 1890s, Eureka Springs boasted many fine hotels and bath houses. The town was a very popular spa known as "The Town that Water Built." The New Orleans Hotel is a lovely survivor of those days.
Today, the New Orleans continues to thrive as a very popular establishment just as it did over one hundred years ago. New owners are overseeing an exciting renovation and restoration of the hotel. Ideally situated in the very heart of downtown Eureka Springs, the hotel offers large comfortable rooms with Jacuzzi tubs, 32" flat screen TVs with DVD player, wireless internet access, a new sensational spa on the lobby level and convenient parking directly behind the hotel. Remodeling is almost complete in the downstairs restaurant and bar area. Long disused spaces are being developed for retail use. The new stores will face Center Street and offer distinctive and exciting shopping experiences.
Completed in 1892, The New Orleans Hotel was originally called the Wadsworth Hotel. W.S. W

We really enjoyed our stay here. The hotel staff is friendly and the hotel has a lot of character. Other than the bathrooms (renovated), most of it looked straight out of the 1890's. Since my fiance and I love Victorian architecture, it was a lot of fun. The location is very convenient, right along Spring Street. I was also able to get a reservation during Valentine's day weekend, while the other big hotels in town were booked (or had a 3-night minimum stay). Also, there was a minor problem during billing (the price of the room was mis-quoted over the phone), and they fixed it right away.

I am originally from New Orleans and this place felt like home,especially for our first visit to historic Eureka Springs. Right in the historic district near several fine galleries and walking distance to the Spring Street Victorians. Beautiful lobby with tin ceiling and lots of wood everywhere, very accommodating and friendly staff, mostly Gay. Very helpful with restaurant recommendations and sites to see.
We reserved one of the less expensive $99 smaller rooms for one night ( they usually have a two night minimun in summer and strict cancellation policy ) and it suited us just fine. It was smallish and only had a teeny bathroom with shower only but a/c was working good, queen bed ok and decorated with antiques, flat screen TV, free internet service. Reminded me of The Gunn House in Sonora, CA. but without a much desired pool on this 100* weekend.
I am a full breakfast kinda fella but this continental buffet was very nice and filled me up just fine. Fresh and RIPE fruit served in a watermelon ( nice touch) fresh baked banana bread, yogurts, juice and coffe with CREAM! ( told you I was picky)
No elevator but we were only on the second floor,so no problem, free and easy parking in back.
While in town we checked out the much praised Basin Park and Crescent Hotels and these both looked tired and dingy. Only the Palace looked comparable to the New Orleans.

My boyfriend and I came up from Little Rock and stayed in a room on the second floor. Pros and cons are as follows:
Pros: free parking in the back gave us quick access to the hotel and because of its location, we were central to everything and we were able to stay on foot and see all the downtown sights.
The staff was friendly; free drinks in the hotel room's minifridge, free wifi . The room itself was clean and the bed was a king size. Comfy to sleep in.
One particular amenity i enjoyed was the jacuzzi. I really enjoyed the tub.
Cons: the biggest con about the New Orleans was the sheer amount of noise. We were in a room facing Spring St and bc we were right next door to the bar Chelseas, we could hear people coming in and out slaming doors, being loud above us and below us. The hotel door was paper thin and we could actually see light from the hallway shining through cracks of the center part of the door.
All in all, an alright stay. Best part definitely being its price and location. Its convenient to everything.

I stayed at this hotel on Labor Day weekend and the experience was one to remember. When I called to make reservations I spoke to Cajun who explained all my options and prices and was very patient and knowledgeable. Cajun met us outside the hotel by the door upon our arrival, valet the car and checked us in before walking us to our room. I was very impressed by her personable interaction with us and her hospitality. The room was great. Kind of noisy but not when we were going to sleep. The jacuzzi was amazing. The fridge had complimentary sodas. Movie rentals were free as well. All in all I'm very glad we stayed at this hotel. Also because it is so centrally located in downtown ES and you can keep you car in the back p.lot while you walk around or even catch the trolly.

I did not stay in the hotel. I just visited their lounge. The decor is cool. It's relaxing and fairly quiet. However, the beverages are over-priced and terrible. Don't waste your time. Any questions?

Two friends and I stayed here for Spring Diversity Weekend. I was the first to arrive and parked my car in the loading zone. As I started towards the door it was opened by a friendly staff person. I unloaded my luggage and went into the beautiful Lobby. The staff person parked my car and I was done with driving for the entire weekend. The hotel is very conveniently located so everything is within walking distance.
My room was on the second floor, my friends were just above me on the third. I lugged my luggage up the two flights and wish I had taken the offer of having them taken up for me. Those stairs are a killer when you're an over-packer like me.
I stayed in a lower priced room which has a queen bed, flat-screened TV, an armoire for the hanging clothes (although no hangers), a dresser for the other things and a night stand with drawers.
The bathroom is tiny as is the shower but the water presser is good and the water gets hot quickly. The bed is comfortable and I slept like a baby each night.
The staff is very friendly and helpful. The hotel is clean and well dressed with antique furniture and a large table in the hall of the second floor. There is a balcony on the street side for all guests to use where it is fun to watch the stores opening for the day in the cool of the morning.
They offer a continental breakfast in the lobby which is not you typical donut laden fare. They had fresh fruit, granola, yogurt, coffee and pastries made by locals. The coffee was actually good! They offer free DVDs to use in your room but why would anyone waste time in their room when there is so much Eureka has to offer?
I very much enjoyed my stay here but my legs are paying for walking up and down those stairs as many times as I did. I'm lucky I was on the second floor since my friends had it worse on the third floor.
Don't miss the Voulez-vous Lounge just below the hotel, the drinks are awesome and the ambiance is fab.
