Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. unveiled Le Méridien New Orleans, following a comprehensive $29 million transformation.

The newly renovated hotel features 410 fully redesigned guestrooms, including 22 suites; three new food and beverage outlets, including a new destination restaurant; and the addition of 1,600 square feet of flexible meeting and event space.

“Le Méridien is experiencing strong growth momentum in North America, and New Orleans has long been on our short list of dynamic U.S. cities that share in our brand passions for the arts, culture and cuisine,” said Brian Povinelli, Global Brand Leader, Le Méridien and Westin. “Le Méridien New Orleans will provide a unique experience for creative and curious minded travelers as we help them unlock the destination through locally influenced design, programming and food and beverage.”

The renovation of Le Méridien New Orleans is taking place in two phases, with the first round completion including the full-scale renovation of all 410 guestrooms and respective corridors. Throughout the hotel, the design incorporates lines and grids inspired by the cartography and geography of New Orleans as seen from an aerial perspective. The design also features patterns and textures influenced by cultural and architectural elements, creating discovery moments for guests at every turn.

Le Méridien New Orleans also features the signature Le Méridien Hub™, a social gathering place that further builds on the brand’s award-winning arrival experience, offering guests and locals a coffeehouse environment by day and a wine-inspired setting by night. An essential element of Le Méridien Hub, Longitude 90 bar invites guests to sip on carefully brewed cups of illy® coffee by a Master Barista, engage over Le Méridien Sparkling cocktails and indulge in succulent éclairs.

Renovations completed on the second floor include 1,600 square feet of new, flexible meeting for a total of 20,000 square feet of meeting and event space as well as the addition of a new breakfast restaurant, Marché. As part of Le Méridien signature breakfast, guests receive a fresh start each morning with complimentary Eye Opener shots. These shots combine unconventional ingredient pairings and local flavours to awaken taste buds.

Centrally located on Poydras Street, Le Méridien New Orleans is adjacent to the Arts District and just a few blocks from the jazz clubs, restaurants and night clubs of the world-famous French Quarter. Nearby attractions include Harrah’s Casino, the Warehouse District, Contemporary Arts Center, Ogden Museum of Southern Art, Outlet Collection at Riverwalk and the French Market.
