The Saint Hotel in New Orleans’s French Quarter has debuted five new luxury suites, each named for an angel (one fallen) or saint: Michael, Christopher, Gabriel, Raphael, and Lucifer. Their interiors—designed by one of the hotel’s co-owners, Mark Wyant, and his wife, Lorenda Wyant—feature Egyptian-cotton bedding, iPod-compatible Bose Wave sound systems, and 60-inch televisions. The Christopher, Gabriel, and Raphael Suites range from 1,200 to 1,500 square feet and start at $679 per night. The two largest suites, named for the archangels Michael and Lucifer, span approximately 1,800 square feet and start at $3,179 and $2,479 per night, respectively.
The two-bedroom, two-bathroom Archangel Michael Suite’s 10 floor-to-ceiling windows overlook Canal Street and have custom window shades printed with 6-foot-tall portraits of saints and angels. The suite’s interior boasts a heavenly color palette, with cobalt-blue floors, sky-blue ceilings, blue LED lighting, a blue Murano-glass chandelier, and white furniture. By contrast, the Archangel Lucifer Suite centers on a color scheme of blacks and reds—black Carrara marble in the bathroom, a black claw-foot bathtub, a black Murano-glass chandelier, and red LED lighting—and is appointed with antique Victorian furniture. Guests feeling a bit wicked can take to the suite’s small private stage, which is spotlighted by a sparkling mirrored light fixture and outfitted with a dance pole.
