Discover the Southern Hotel with its dual tradition of providing a healing retreat for visitors with state of the art lodging.

Southern Hotel was constructed at the dawn of the 20th century, in which the United States had started to emerge as a global superpower.

Originally opened in 1907, the Southern Hotel boasted the latest luxuries of its time: hot water, electric lights, carpeting, ballrooms, galleries, a tennis court, formal garden, and unparalleled service. The Mission-style hotel attracted guests and luminous visitors from around the world.

In 1912, a local physician purchased the hotel and reopens it as a Wellness Center, which it remained for nearly 50 years. After a 20 year stint as the St. Tammany Parish County Courthouse, the property was restored to its original purpose and glory as the Southern Hotel.

A team of dedicated local developers purchased the Southern Hotel, 45 minutes north of New Orleans in late 2011 with plans to reopen the property as a full-service hotel. Trapolin-Peer Architects were brought on board to restore the hotel to a luxurious getaway while preserving its historic and architectural significance.

Exactly 107 years after its original open date, on June 1, 2014, the Southern Hotel celebrated its grand re-opening.
