International House Press Release from Simon Rathle

Easy as 1, 2, 3
Super Summer Breaks at International House
Summer breaks aren’t just for the kids anymore. You work hard all year, and you deserve your own summer break. For July and August 2009, New Orleans’ most distinctive boutique hotel, International House, located just two blocks from the celebrated French Quarter, is making summertime an enjoyable break in the Crescent City -- easy as 1, 2, 3!

1. Check in to a sleek and sophisticated room at 221 Camp Street for three nights at one low price of $221 – that’s less than $75 per night!

2. Enjoy the convenience of being in the heart of New Orleans' Central Business District, just two blocks from the French Quarter.

3. Savor three popular cocktails at International House’s bar, loa, as the hotel’s gift to you.

With its compelling style, a romance-laced ensemble of French, Spanish, African, Caribbean, and other cultures, New Orleans is by far America’s most sensual, distinctly-European travel destination. International House, the city’s premier establishment, delivers the New Orleans' fabled aura through exceptional quality, real service, unique design and style. Located on a bustling street in the city’s downtown business district, the hotel’s Beaux Arts façade greets guests with white columns and perfectly proportioned pediments. Upon entering the towering lobby, sounds of the street and the elegant-classicism of the exterior quickly give way when the monumental bronze doors adorned with custom-cast “plumb-bob” handles close behind you.

In the recent renovation and re-design project directed by owner Sean Cummings and Los Angeles-based designer LM Pagano (designer of choice to Johnny Depp and Nicolas Cage,) the fanciful lobby simmers in tones of carnelian and tiger’s eye, with elements of iron, fire, velvet, and wood, adding textures to an already rich mix of patterns and hues. The stylish bar, loa, whose very name means “divine spirit,” embraces New Orleans’ own special Voodoo culture with a candlelit ambience.

Subject to availability. Based on double occupancy. Not valid June 19, 20 & 21 & July 3,4 & 5. Taxes, gratuity, and additional alcohol beyond the promotion are not included.

International House is located in the heart of the Central Business District at 221 Camp Street, New Orleans. For reservations please call 800.633.5770 or visit
