Robért LeBlanc will open LeBlanc+Smith’s first hotel project, The Corsair Hotel, in historic Uptown New Orleans.
The Corsair Hotel will be the newest addition to the LeBlanc+Smith portfolio, which includes Sylvain, Meauxbar, Barrel Proof, Cavan, and Longway Tavern.
Opening fall 2019 with interior design by Sara Ruffin Costello and landscaping by John D. Gray and Gray Gardens, the hotel will have 15 rooms, including four suites, a restaurant with an adjoining lobby bar, and a pool bar.
Housed in a historic Queen Anne-style mansion, which was built as a private home in 1891, The Corsair will have 13-foot ceilings, hardwood floors, and original fireplaces. Guestrooms will have views of St. Charles Avenue and Uptown, custom-designed and antique furniture, luxury bedding, complimentary Wi-Fi, flat screen televisions, a locally sourced minibar, and walk-in showers and clawfoot tubs stocked with custom bath and body products.

The hotel’s indoor and outdoor space will be able to accommodate events.
