Blending seamlessly into a historic neighborhood.
The complex historic renovation of the 156-year-old Saints Peter and Paul Church and School transformed the campus into a 71-room, independently run boutique hotel located in the Marigny neighborhood of New Orleans. The property consists of four historic structures that sat abandoned and deteriorating for nearly two decades: school, rectory, church, and convent buildings. The now 4-story school building is the largest on the campus and houses the majority of the hotel’s guest rooms. The rectory’s first floor includes a welcoming lounge area, coffee shop, bar, and restaurant.
The church space was brought back to life by restoring plaster, stained glass, and artwork as well as installing a modern HVAC system and restrooms. The Design Assist delivery method ensured that conflicts were resolved before the work was put in place.
The church now accommodates events and community programming. Completed in 2018, the 102,000-square-foot Hotel Peter & Paul was designed by project architect, studioWTA. It is a unique space that blends seamlessly with the culturally rich neighborhood while adapting to the various needs of the hotel.
