Loews New Orleans Hotel Set to Re-open October 17; Local Companies
to Receive First Priority for Employee Housing and Office Space

NEW ORLEANS – Loews New Orleans Hotel is being restored to perfection and will begin the first phase of its re-opening as early as Oct. 17, 2005. The four-diamond hotel was spared from flooding and vandalism in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and is now in the midst of restoring the property and assisting in the recovery of New Orleans. The hotel will offer availability first to local companies that are searching for much-needed office space or employee housing.

“Loews New Orleans Hotel was fortunate not to have standing water inside the hotel, which means we can recover and re-open in a timely manner,” says General Manager Steve Ferran. “Being a good neighbor is very much a part of our culture at Loews, so we are eager to reach out to those businesses in the area that were not as lucky, providing shelter and refuge as we rebuild our community together.” 

With renovations well underway, the first floor, including reception, lobby and bar, as well as the hotel’s meeting space and ballroom are already restored to their original splendor and fully functional. The guestrooms will be opened in phases through December 2005, and the famed Café Adelaide is also expected to open before the end of the year. 

Situated in New Orleans’ Warehouse District, spirited nuances of New Orleans echo throughout Loews New Orleans Hotel. From sweeping views of the Mississippi River to local images reflected in artwork, a sense of place is subtly woven into the property, while personalized service and 285 oversized guestrooms provide an unpretentious four-diamond experience.
