“My favourite lodges all the time appear to be these which were handed down by way of generations,” notes Larry McGuire of Lambert McGuire Design, waxing nostalgic for areas touched by many fingers over a number of eras. Within the Decrease Backyard District of New Orleans, he and studio cofounder Liz Lambert, a fellow hospitality veteran, have now left their very own mark on an 1861 constructing, remodeling the redbrick magnificence into the newly unveiled Resort Saint Vincent. A meticulous restoration of the landmark edifice (initially Saint Vincent’s Toddler Asylum) has given option to 75 visitor rooms and suites, every enlivened by luxe materials, eclectic objets, and customized Voutsa wallpaper in a marbleized motif. Public areas combine new and outdated, with neon indicators, wrought-iron gates, ’70s chandeliers, and a winding staircase. “Slightly grand, a little bit debaucherous” is how Lambert describes the sybaritic vibe, which is totally on show at restaurant San Lorenzo and the guest-only bar The Chapel Membership. (Suppose pink velvet, ebonized flooring, and classical nudes.) However after a day lounging by the pool, strolling the neighborhood, and fascinating within the native late-night revelry, the bedrooms, McGuire notes, are a “restful respite.” Sinners and saints alike will sleep tight. —Sam Cochran
