New Orleans celebrates launch of the J Collection hotel brand

NEW ORLEANS — The letter of the day is ‘J’, at least in New Orleans where the brand new J Collection of hotels and resorts is making its official debut.

Comprised of 19 locally-owned and operated hotels throughout the city and surrounding region, the new brand marks the evolution of the New Orleans Hotel Collection and the French Hotel Collection, which are now under the same umbrella of the J Collection.



“The J Collection represents the best of the South, with an incredibly diverse array of hotels and resorts, each with its own unique story to tell,” said Joe Jaeger, Principal of the J Collection. “As we continue to expand our presence throughout New Orleans and beyond, including the two most recent acquisitions of Le Richelieu and Dunleith, we look forward to continuing our commitment to preserving and protecting historically significant properties throughout the region.”

The J Collection was founded in New Orleans by Jaeger in 2015 as a part of the MCC Group, a multi-unit real estate development organization dedicated to real estate projects that spur meaningful economic and community development. Jaeger is recognized as one of the most innovative developers in the region, a leading member of many local organizations and the recipient of numerous awards and accolades.

The hotels and resorts of the collection are designed to inspire and embody the rich history of their respective destinations. These include Nottoway, the largest remaining antebellum mansion in the South, and The Bourbon Orleans, home to the most historic ballroom in New Orleans. There’s also The Jung Hotel & Residences, Canal Street’s first luxury hotel, and Audubon Cottages, which in lieu of a front desk boasts a personal butler for each guest who greets them at the door.

With a well-curated range of options, from boutique to sprawling, the J Collection offers a range of price points appealing to almost any traveler, from a romantic escape or a family vacation, to a one-of-a-kind corporate event, wedding or celebration.
