A new Four Seasons hotel and private residents will open in the New Orleans World Trade Centre next year.
The new 341-room hotel is next to the Ernest N Morial Convention Center, financial centre and French Quarter, and has clear views of both the city and Mississippi River.
It will feature meeting and event spaces, four food and drink outlets, retail spaces, spa facilities and a rooftop pool.
“New Orleans has been a priority market for us for many years and we have been waiting for the right opportunity to make our debut in this dynamic city,” said John Davison, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts’ president and chief executive.
Four Seasons has partnered with Carpenter and Company, and Woodward Interests, on the project.
Richard Friedman, Carpenter and Company’s president and chief executive, said: “We are incredibly excited for the upcoming opening of our new project in New Orleans, one that will see the transformation of the historic World Trade Center into the best lifestyle experience in the city.
“Having worked with Four Seasons for many years, most recently on our new project in Boston at One Dalton Street, I am confident that they are the right partners to help create a superior luxury lifestyle experience, and deliver the highest levels of quality and service to both visitors and residents.”
The new hotel will be led by general manager Mali Carow, a Four Seasons veteran of nearly 20 years.
