What a unique combination of old world charm and spa accessibility. The New Orleans Hotel is a survivor of the many fine hotels and bath houses from the 1890's and of the birth of Eureka Springs, Arkansas. The New Orleans Hotel, currently has new owners and has over gone a renovation and restoration which brings the best of modern day features with the charm of it's historical past.

It is ideally situated in the heart of downtown Eureka Springs. The hotel offers large comfortable rooms with Jacuzzi tubs, a new sensational spa (The Suchness Spa see the review this on this web site) on the lobby level and convenient parking directly behind the hotel. Remodeling is near complete in the downstairs and restaurant and bar area.

More about the Hotel ...

This hotel was completed in 1892, it was originally called the Wadsworth Hotel. W.S. Wadsworth was the proprietor and his wife Jennie, a former circus bareback rider, was the attractive and popular hostess. In 1906, two years after Mr. Wadsworth's death, Jennie sold the hotel to Theodore H. and Florence E. Pollack. Mrs. Wadsworth moved to a house at 14 Kings Highway where she lived until her death in 1933.

The Pollacks owned the hotel only briefly and by 1908, Dr. B.A. Bugg of Blytheville, Arkansas purchased the Hotel Wadsworth from Mr. Reginald Archillion of Luxora, Arkansas.

At some point after 1908, the hotel was renamed the Allred Hotel, remaining a popular hotel with sixty rooms, and advertising a nightly rate of $2.50.

Cecil Mayberry purchased the hotel in 1949 and renamed it the Springs Hotel. In 1954 Gale Reeves purchased the hotel. The next owners were Neils M. and L. A. Mildred Martensen who named it the New Orleans Hotel. It was placed on the National Historic Register in 1967, a real estate ad from 1969 listed the property for sale at a price of $65,000.00.

The hotel was purchased in 1972 by Barbara Foreman Scott of New Orleans, Louisiana. She sold the hotel to Phil and Flo Schloss. Riverview Management purchased the hotel in 1984. In the late eighties, the hotel went into receivership and was managed by Southern Inns Management Inc. until purchased by Don and Shirley Newberry in 1992. The New Orleans Hotel was purchased by its present owner, Lovely County Landmarks Corporation in April of 2002.

We found the New Orleans Hotel and Spa to be one of the best locations stay to enjoy all that Eureka Springs has to offer. There are hundreds of shops to take in near by on the street level and you are in short walking distance from many of the main attractions. Basin Park is just a half block down on Spring Street and the Auditorium is just two short blocks from this hotel.

Eureka Springs is truly a unique historical city with all of the city being on the national historical registry. The city host several events throughout the year which brings a host of talents to the city. One of the biggest events is the Blues Festival. If you have never been, it should be on your to do list. Be sure to make reservations way ahead for this event as most of the hotels book solid for this event.

Most notably, Eureka Springs is a wonderful place to have a wedding. Many a wedding are held each weekend here.
