Omni Hotels & Resorts in partnership with Riverfront Lodging have acquired the Wyndham Riverfront New Orleans, which has since been re-flagged as the Omni Riverfront Hotel. The announcement comes on the heels of a six-month, $8-million property renovation.
The hotel is located in New Orleans' Warehouse and Arts District, and steps away from top attractions and the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.
“Omni Hotels & Resorts has a long history in New Orleans, dating back almost 30 years, with the Omni Royal Orleans, and later the Omni Royal Crescent Hotel,” said Mike Deitemeyer, president of Omni Hotels & Resorts. “We are pleased to have a third hotel in this amazing city, and to help make memorable New Orleans experiences for vacationers, business travelers and meeting attendees alike.”
During the last six months, the hotel has undergone a comprehensive renovation that overhauled and updated many aspects of the property. Guests entering the newly renovated hotel will experience a new open-air lobby. The bar has been rotated 180 degrees to create more space for guests. Each guestroom has been completely renovated and features white tile entryways, new carpet and furniture, tubs and black tile in the bathrooms, as well as bedside LED reading lamps and 42-inch flat screen televisions.
The renovation also included a re-branding of the hotel’s restaurant. Previously known as 7 on Fulton, the dining establishment is now called Fulton St. Bistro | Bar.
