Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts has opened its new property on the Mississippi waterfront at the foot of Canal Street in New Orleans, Louisiana, US.
Called as Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences New Orleans, the hotel lies near the historic French Quarter, the Warehouse Arts District and myriad parks and greenspaces.
Architect Edward Durell Stone had designed the property, which has been transformed by Four Seasons.
Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts Global Operations president Christian Clerc said: “New Orleans is a destination that has long been on our wish list.
“We could not be more excited to introduce Four Seasons to this incredible community, and to share an authentic and memorable New Orleans experience with guests from near and far.
“The transformation of this truly iconic building is stunning and serves as a wonderful addition to Four Seasons portfolio of exceptional properties.”
Four Seasons Hotel New Orleans features 341 rooms and suites designed by Bill Rooney Studio. The size of the guest rooms ranges from 438ft2 to 571ft2.
Each of the 280 guest rooms are equipped with floor-to-ceiling windows and offer River and City views.
The hotel has 29,000ft2 of event spaces including river view ballrooms, and open-air venues such as Event Garden and the sky-high Observation Deck.
It will also feature a crescent-shaped rooftop swimming pool, a 24/7 fitness centre and The Spa.
The hotel also has all-new restaurant concepts, such as Miss River dining experience, newest concept Chemin a la Mer and lobby-level Chandelier Bar.
Four Seasons Hotel New Orleans general manager Mali Carow said: “We have assembled an unparalleled team of talented New Orleanians and experienced Four Seasons veterans from around the world who exemplify the tradition of warm and welcoming Southern hospitality.
“We’ve heard from so many Four Seasons guests, avid world travellers, and locals expressing their excitement for our opening – it’s truly amazing!”
In June, Four Seasons partnered with Tokyo Tatemono Co and Singapore-based real estate company Hotel Properties Limited (HPL) to open new hotel in Osaka, Japan.
