The new Saint Hotel stocks luxe treats in its guest suites
The new Saint Hotel, opening in the next few weeks in the Audubon building at Canal and Burgundy streets, has planted little treats in the guest suites. The hotel bathrooms will be kitted out with Niven Morgan shampoos, conditioners, body lotions, reed room diffusers and seersucker robes.

The 2.3 ounce toiletries are from Morgan’s “Blue” line, scented with bergamot and amber.
A Shreveport native, Dallas resident and adoptive son of New Orleans (he travels here almost monthly); Morgan has been expanding his presence in luxury resorts. His candles, lotions and bath goodies are sold at the Ritz-Carlton New Orleans gift shop and stocked in the villas of Mustique, a small private Caribbean island that caters to the types of visitors accustomed to traveling with a staff in tow.
As for the Saint, its choice in guest toiletries is in keeping with other Louisiana-centric touches scattered about the hotel. Historic black and white photos of New Orleans will hang in the lobby, French Quarter-based Bevelo Gas & Electric Lights made the lanterns at the entrance, and 42-inch televisions near the elevators will play a continuous video loop of Elvis Presley in “King Creole” and performances by Louis Armstrong.
