Destination Hotels adds Royal St. Charles Hotel in New Orleans

10Destination Hotels & Resorts has added to its collection with the addition of the 143-room Royal St. Charles in New Orleans, between the French Quarter and the New Orleans Convention Center. The property was acquired by Lowe Enterprises Investors on behalf of an investment client.

“The Royal St. Charles is an exciting addition to the Destination Hotels & Resorts portfolio,” said Jamie Sabatier, president and COO of Destination Hotels & Resorts. “Under Destination management, we will provide best practices and hospitality tools to further integrate the property into the local community and continue to update, refine, and maintain the vision of this unique hotel to drive revenue and profitability.”

Royal St. Charles Hotel was originally the Southern Federal Savings Bank. The property was converted from commercial office space to a modern boutique hotel in 2000. Today, the building is completely transformed and operates as a hotel with the original bank vault still intact. The 10-story property, which underwent a renovation in October 2012, includes approximately 2,610 square feet of meeting space, a fitness center and PJ’s Coffee & Café outlet. The Royal St. Charles is the only customized, select-service independent hotel in New Orleans, making it an ideal choice for business and leisure travelers seeking a fresh, genuine sense of place with authentic New Orleans service and modern touch points.
