The News Paper Row
The Alexandre Penthouse– 3 Bedroom & Rooftop Access
8 guests | 4 beds | 3 bedrooms | 3 bathrooms | 2 Kitchens | 2 Living rooms
The 4,000-square-foot triplex penthouse suite is The Alexandre’s largest and most expansive accommodations. There are 2 individually styled suites with private entrances, kitchens, and bathrooms that connect by the hallway leading to the outdoor rooftop. The Newspaper row penthouse is perfect for planning a trip for the whole family, large groups of friends or maybe something more intimate with the ability to entertain guests.
The Newspaper Row is both decadent and charming, boasting state-of-the-art amenities, shows lots of historic architecture with personality, spa-like bathrooms, and touches of Victorian accents. The two penthouses offer a combined 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and can sleep up to 8 people. Each apartment is tastefully appointed, and each has its own living, dining and kitchen spaces. Additional features include soaring ceilings, tall windows and a private outdoor rooftop with views of the New Orleans business district.
since several of New Orleans’ major newspapers and other publications such as the Daily Picayune, The New Orleans Item and the Times-Democrat were located here. The tight cluster of aggressive journalists made for a bustling and colorful atmosphere, one that sometimes boiled into brawls and shoot-outs. Mostly, though, the row buildings were filled with diligent journalists, editors, typesetters and workers intent on meeting deadlines and surviving in the fiercely competitive market. As for Newspaper Row today, we are fortunate to retain most of its old buildings and its history.
