So much work has been done so far and so much more is in progress that we wanted to keep everyone up to date on our changes.
Our new lobby was unveiled this winter with a old-world New Orleans courtyard feel complete with lampposts, bubbling fountains, exposed brick, and flower carts. A fresh and new front desk area is a welcoming treat. (see the Photo Gallery for lobby photos)
Our courtyard rooms have been refurbished with new furniture and decor and now feature refrigerators.
Here are some photos of the work in progress in the Courtyard:
