Pontchartrain Hotel on St. Charles Avenue Seeks to Resume Partial Hotel Service

The Times-Picayune reporpontcharitraints that the Pontchartrain Hotel, which is currently being used as luxury apartments for the elderly, has requested the right to resume operations as a hotel. The owners of the building at 2031 St Charles Ave. plan to make some of the 82 units available for short-term visitors, and the new designation will also allow the Pontchartrain to be able legally to offer live music in its cocktail lounge, the Bayou Bar. The planning commission unanimously endorsed the Pontchartrain’s request for a new legal status, and the City Council will vote on the change in a few weeks.
