New Orleans, with its graceful wrought iron balconies and distinct quarters, looks like a work of art in and of itself. Windsor Court Hotel, which is located in the Central
Business District and has 264 suites, boasts classic English elegance, with a collection of paintings, sculptures, tapestries and furnishings dating from the 17th to late 20th centuries.
Many of the artworks are of British origin with an emphasis on works that depict the Windsor Castle and life of British royalty. The collection has an estimated value of more than $8 million and includes original works by Reynolds, Gainsborough and Huysman.
Near the Front Desk, view 17th century lavish court life in King Charles II’s Last Sunday, a painting by William Powell Frith, which was originally housed at the Royal Academy of London.
