Self-Care Staycation at Hotel Fontenot

Self-Care Staycation at Hotel Fontenot

Booking a self-care staycation in New Orleans is a part of my self-care plan. Once a month, I choose a local hotel for a kid-free night of relaxation. My selection criteria include a large bathtub, a comfy robe and wellness amenities. I am a busy mom, health care professional and entrepreneur who became a widow right before the start of the pandemic. While most people book hotel stays for girl’s trips, weddings or family vacations, my reason is simply, a break.

Kimpton Hotel Fontenot is a newly opened chic and trendy boutique hotel in downtown New Orleans. Of course, it’s location is perfect for tourists, but I want to talk about the luxury hotel amenities that make it a great place for a self-care staycation.

Luxurious Frette Linens: Drift off to a good night’s sleep wrapped in sateen linens by Frette. I must admit I hit the snooze button quite a few times that Sunday morning.

Black Trim Microfiber Robe with Embroidered Feather: A plush, comfy robe is always on my list of must haves in the hotel room. This Frette robe did not disappoint. The sizing was generous too, so I didn’t mind lounging the day away.

King Suite with Soaking Tub: They had me at soaking tub, my number reason for booking a staycation. Bath salts are included.

Contrary to popular belief, self-care is not always spa days and pedicures. Sometimes it’s a staycation, a workout, or a therapy session. May is Mental Health Awareness month and this week is National Women’s Health Week. This is a reminder to put yourself first and make time for self-care.

What are some of your favorite ways to practice self-care?
