New Orleans — It might not be the prettiest place to vacation, but this tiny, seaside town is definitely worth a visit.
New Orleans, Louisiana, is home to the nation’s oldest continuously inhabited city, and its famous jazz and blues music scene, but it’s also home to one of the most expensive and luxurious hotels in the world.
A hotel called Gatlinburg Live will be the priciest and most luxurious hotel in town, and it’s about to get that honor.
It’s scheduled to open this fall.
Gatlinburys owner, Michael Gatlin, told The Huffington Post he decided to build the hotel in the middle of the floodwaters of Hurricane Katrina because it’s a perfect spot for him to live and work.
He built the hotel during the hurricane, and says he’s never experienced a hurricane with a budget like it.
It has a total of three floors, which will house four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and two dining rooms.
The hotel will be located at 735 W. Canal Street, which is located on the west side of New Orleans.
Gatlins wife, Sarah, said the hotel is a total family affair.
“It’s family friendly,” she said.
“There’s an entire kitchen staff, an entire maid service, and a full bar.”
She added that the restaurant will be open and serving up the best local cuisine.
The room rates start at $1,000 per night, but that’s only for the first night, and the hotel will eventually go up to $3,000 for the weekend.
“We’ve been able to raise the price of the rooms for the most part because of the need to get a lot of people out of their homes, and we’re just able to do that by the weekend,” Gatlin said.
A total of 12 rooms will be in the hotel, with an additional two bedrooms available.
Gatler is a big fan of the New Orleans Saints, who he says have been extremely supportive of the hotel.
“Our guys are the best in the NFL,” he said.
Gatlynzburg Live is the first hotel to be built in New Orleans after Katrina.
It will be part of a massive revitalization project for New Orleans and will eventually house more than 200 businesses.
“I think people are just excited to get back to their home,” Sarah Gatlin told HuffPost.
“People don’t know how much money we’ve raised for the city and the people who live here.
People don’t even know we exist.”
The hotel is scheduled to be completed in 2018.
Gatline has said he wants to do everything he can to make Gatlinberg Live a “perfect” hotel.
That includes hiring a professional chef, installing new landscaping, and building a new restaurant that will cater to the tourists who come through Gatlinville each year.
