New Castle to rebrand New Orleans hotel as a Fairfield Inn

New Castle Hotels & Resorts closed the Baronne Inn and Suites in downtown New Orleans ahead of a $10-million, eight-month total transformation to convert the historic building to a Fairfield Inn & Suites. The hotel expects to reopen in spring, 2016.

Located at 346 Baronne St., in the central business district and just one block off Bourbon St., the Fairfield Inn and Suites New Orleans Downtown/French Quarter Area will mark the brand’s debut in the Big Easy. The all-suite hotel will have 103 guest suites, a full bar and complimentary breakfast and Wi-Fi.
