The Rubenstein Family, in Collaboration with the J Collection Hotels, Transformed a Historic New Orleans Property into a Luxury Boutique Hotel

NEW ORLEANS (Jan 29, 2024) – The Rubenstein family, renowned for their century-old bespoke men’s clothing store, along with the Jaeger family, owners of award-winning New Orleans-based J Collection Hotels, are proud to announce New Orleans’ newest luxury boutique hotel. Located on the upper floors of six historic buildings and just steps from the French Quarter, the 40-room hotel named The Rubenstein Hotel offers an unprecedented location with luxurious features and details.

The Rubenstein’s namesake hotel, located on the corner of Canal St. and St. Charles Avenue, is an extension of the family’s rich history in New Orleans, with their presence dating back 100 years to 1924 when Morris Rubenstein opened his haberdashery on the site. Over time, the family acquired several neighboring structures. Now, the upper floors of these historic buildings are brought to life as an exquisite boutique hotel.

The Rubenstein Hotel opened its doors on December 31, 2023, showcasing a seamless blend of historic architecture, fine detailing, and modern comforts. The hotel features many design details that pay tribute to the Rubenstein family’s tailoring legacy.

“We are proud to showcase our family’s enduring commitment to downtown and the city of New Orleans,” says David Rubenstein. “Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, we are optimistic about the timing of our hotel’s debut and its contribution to tourism in New Orleans.”

The Rubenstein Hotel joins 17 other hotels in the Jaeger family’s J Collection portfolio of hotels. Each aims to provide travelers with unique experiences that showcase local touches and historical significance.

Mr. Joe Jaeger, the family patriarch, shared, “My family is committed to New Orleans and, as the largest operator of independent hotels in the city, we are always looking for opportunities to introduce projects that embrace the city’s uniqueness and character. Working with the Rubenstein family, who share our love of the city, to bring The Rubenstein Hotel to life was both an honor and a privilege.”

The Rubenstein Hotel promises to be a jewel in the heart of New Orleans, welcoming guests with warmth, style, and a genuine sense of Southern hospitality.

The Rubenstein Hotel is managed by Aimbridge Hospitality, a leading global hospitality management company, and the world’s largest third-party hotel operator.
