About The J Collection
The J Collection was founded in New Orleans by Joseph A. Jaeger Jr. in 2015 as a part of the MCC Group, a multi-unit real estate development organization dedicated to projects that spur meaningful economic and community development. Jaeger has a deep commitment to preserving history while modernizing amenities for today's traveler, and this is reflected across all of the hotels under the J Collection brand. The J Collection is comprised of 14 unique, locally owned and operated hotels situated throughout New Orleans and the surrounding region. Each property offers its own distinctive style and personality, along with personalized service and southern hospitality. This new brand is the next step in the evolution of the New Orleans Hotel Collection and the French Quarter Hotel Collection – previously two separate hotel groups – which are now under the same umbrella of the J Collection.
