Virgin Hotels New Orleans Opening Labor Day Weekend
Virgin Hotels has announced its latest property: Virgin Hotels New Orleans. Located at 550 Baronne Street near the Central Business District, the new-build hotel will feature 238 Chambers (guestrooms), including Grand Chamber Suites and two Penthouses. The 1,097-square foot, over-the-top Richard’s Flat Penthouse features floor-to-ceiling windows, one master bedroom, a kitchenette and stunning views of downtown New Orleans says the brand. Opening Labor Day Weekend on Wednesday, Sept. 1, the hotel is currently accepting reservations.
Virgin Hotels New Orleans will also offer multiple dining and drinking outlets, including Commons Club, the brand’s centerpiece restaurant, a bar and lounge, a rooftop pool and lounge atop the 13th floor and the Funny Library Coffee Shop.
“With Virgin Group’s rich history in the music industry and our passion for food and culture, New Orleans is a natural fit for the expansion of the Virgin Hotels brand,” said James Bermingham, CEO of Virgin Hotels. “Each of our hotels are rooted in the communities we serve, and Virgin Hotels New Orleans is no exception. We’re inspired by the city’s vibrant culture and have created a hotel that celebrates the local art, design and music in a uniquely Virgin way. We can’t wait to open our doors this Labor Day and invite both locals and visitors to join us for a truly personalized experience in the special city of New Orleans.”
The Chambers, ranging from 294 to 592-square feet, along with the Penthouse, will be filled with fresh and bright local art, historical detailing and “Art Deco-inspired elements woven throughout, evoking a sense of old-world meets modern luxury.”
The Chambers will feature Virgin Hotels’ signature layout with two distinct spaces. The Dressing Room includes a full vanity, makeup desk with a well-lit mirror, an extra-large shower with a bench completed with Red Flower toiletries and a closet for two.
Designed to make the best use of space and promote privacy for guests, each chamber is separated by a pair of paneled doors, a nod to French doors as commonly seen in New Orleans design and offering a more residential look and feel.
The brand says there are ample outlets for smartphones, laptops, or other electronic devices in various areas of the Chambers. All rooms feature custom lighting on sensors that automatically illuminate when guests move. The Chambers also have integrated tech capabilities, including controlled lighting, thermostats, TVs, and room services available directly via the mobile app, Lucy.
Specially curated entertainment and music programming will add to the overall experience, which evokes the feeling of a modern social club where both travelers and locals can enjoy says the brand.
Virgin Hotels New Orleans joins Virgin Hotels’ rapidly expanding roster, including Virgin Hotels Chicago, Virgin Hotels Dallas, Virgin Hotels Nashville, and Virgin Hotels Las Vegas. It will be followed by Virgin Hotels New York later this year and Virgin Hotels Miami and two overseas projects in development in Edinburgh and Glasgow in 2022 and beyond.
