Bluegreen Vacations Club La Pension, Ascend Resort Collection
Located at the edge of the historic French Quarter, the Bluegreen Vacations Club La Pension represents the city as it stands today – an eclectic mix of history, art, music, and new sometimes boisterous beauty – and is conveniently located within walking distance of the Mardi Gras Grandstand and the St Louis Cathedral for a great New Orleans tourist attraction.
This newly remodeled resort welcomes you to indulge yourself at this hotel! The historic building still boasts exposed beams and brick walls, but now includes lofty window dressings and modern kitchenettes, and to keep modern chic comfy, the suites include plush new linens, white spa-inspired bathrooms, and pristine pine floors. The lobby now features a dramatic wrought-iron desk with a matching canopy, custom-built by one of New Orleans’ most respected metalworkers. The hotel itself offers on-site guest laundry facilities, and the use of the copy and fax machine is available for the convenience of the businessmen and women. During the summer, relax on the wonderful rooftop sun deck for a bird’s-eye view of the city, and there, you can also enjoy comfortable lounges and an oversized chessboard.
In your room, enjoy your own living room and kitchenette, complete with a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker. In-room safes, hairdryers, and extended cable access on the flat-screen high-definition television is also available, as well as an iron and ironing board and complimentary high-speed internet. Some rooms even have a balcony for fantastic views of the surrounding area. All rooms now feature locally made artwork and décor, as well as a variety of unique traits like handcrafted headboards and locally sourced photography.
For award-winning Italian cuisine, dine at the intimate four-star-rated Café Giovanni next door to the resort, and after dinner, stroll through the historic French Quarter where there are tons of hotel choices and also listen to the soulful sounds of jazz as the irresistible aroma of Creole and Cajun food fills the air.
