Marriott International opened a combined 74-suite SpringHill Suites and 105-suite TownePlace Suites in New Orleans. Located at 1600 Canal Street, the hotels will operate as Marriott franchises, and are owned and managed by NewcrestImage of Lewisville, Texas.
The hotels will offer complimentary breakfast and Wi-Fi, and will include a combined lobby lounge, rooftop wellness center, and an elevated rooftop bar, Vue. Vue will offer small meals and craft cocktails, and the space will include two fireplaces and uninterrupted views of the city of New Orleans.
