About Hotel Storyville
The owner moved to NOLA 16 years ago from St Thomas, USVI, where I owned a graphic design studio there for 14 years. Soon after moving to New Orleans, the owner met a sweet, elderly couple that needed his design talent…they owned Hotel Storyville. As they were resident InnKeepers, it was necessary for one of them to stay and mind the Inn while the other would travel. Later, they asked the owner if she would ‘babysit’ the property so they could vacation together. She said yes. In 2005, Katrina devastated much of New Orleans, although there was no flooding on the Esplanade Ridge where the hotel is located. The wife soon passed away and the remaining owner ofered to sell the hotel to me. I readily said yes nad began my new career as an Innkeeper. In operating the hotel, she brought her love of the ocean and islands [décor wise], and a much needed renovation began. Today almost a decade later, visitors look around and in a sense feel as if they are in a relaxed tropical garden in the middle of a bustling city in general, and the historic French Quarter in particular.
