CHECKING IN.

These three hotels are sheer delights. All boutique in size, two are housed in buildings that once had an entirely different purpose than lodging quarters. In New Orleans, Hotel Peter & Paul (appropriately named) was once a stately Catholic church and now hosts over 60 gorgeous room and the esteemed Elysian Bar. The other two are California dreams, and we wouldn't blame you for booking both. {image via hotel peter & paul}
