As you learned during your multi-day family gathering over Thanksgiving, nothing beats the comfort of your own home. But a chic hotel makes for a close second. Meet our latest staycation crush, The Old No. 77 Hotel & Chandlery. Once a coffee warehouse with roots that date back to the 1800s, the historic building has recently been refurbished with updates that showcase the exposed brick-and-beam respite, bringing it to its most attractive era to date. We stopped by the slumber, sip and sup spot to scout a few of our favorite details...

1. Don't have a room? The lobby lounge features a petite cafe called Tout La. Stop by for a morning Americano and a slice of avocado toast to go. 

2. Catering to art lovers: The Where Y'Art gallery just off the lobby featuring local New Orleans artists in a rotating seasonal exhibit. Currently on display is X: The Variable of Progress Sound Off show.

3. Also in the lobby stands a glass-topped shop with goodies from the likes of local labels Tchoup Industries, Dirty Coast, Smoke Perfume and Red Arrow. 

4. The much buzzed about Compère Lapin from Top Chef alum Nina Compton is the featured on-site restaurant. The picturesque space is sure to liven up your Instagram feed. 

5. A throw blanket from local label Loomed Nola rests at the foot of the bed in each stylish room and each mini-bar bottle of Old New Orleans Rum showcases art from label-founder James Michalopoulos.

6. Don't miss the vintage cigarette vending machine turned Art-o-Mat near the elevators to score a tiny piece of take-home original art. 

7. Ready for your next boozy night out, the cleaning service doortags say, "The room has stopped spinning and needs cleaning." and "Let's just say things got a little crazy last night and leave it at that."

Want more from Loomed? The label has opened an outpost in the Shops at Canal Place for the holidays. Set up by NOLA-based Bloodhound Studio, swing by to shop their handwoven Turkish textiles, perfect for the gifting season.
