Now Open: Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences New Orleans

Rising above the Mississippi River, Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences New Orleans is now open.

Four Seasons Hotel New Orleans is located on the Mississippi waterfront at the foot of Canal Street, just 20 minutes from both of the city’s airports. It’s also steps from the historic French Quarter, the Warehouse Arts District and myriad parks and greenspaces; it also offers direct access to the city’s streetcar line.

Chef Concierge Melissa Comardelle, a New Orleans native and a member of Les Clefs d’Or, can arrange for guests a private jazz concert at Preservation Hall, an evening with a local chef who will share their favorite local haunts before preparing dinner for you in their own restaurant, or a private streetcar ride through the historic Garden District with a personal guide, among others.

NOLA-Style Dining and Drinking

In a city that continues to make its mark as one of America’s most renowned culinary destinations, Four Seasons has partnered with acclaimed local chefs to introduce all-new restaurant concepts celebrating the South.

The experience begins at Chandelier Bar, located off the hotel’s lobby and out onto a garden patio. The bar is beneath a 15,000-piece light and glass installation (hence the name), while live music is offered year-round, showcasing local talent. Miss River, led by New Orleans Chef Alon Shaya, is also located on the lobby level.  The menu offers fresh takes on New Orleans classics; guests can look forward to the duck and andouille gumbo, the salt-crusted Gulf red snapper, a clay pot presentation of “dirty” rice, and a whole carved buttermilk fried chicken designed for sharing. (Chef Shaya has also created the shareable bites menu at Chandelier Bar.)

Opening this fall will be Chemin a la Mer, a new concept from Donald Link. Exemplifying its meaning (“pathway to the sea”), the menu of steaks and seafood is a combination of local fare executed with French techniques. Not to be missed is the grand oyster bar, a New Orleans tradition, also under Chef Link’s eye.

This fall, the hotel will open its crescent-shaped rooftop swimming pool surrounded by lounge chairs, four private cabanas and Mississippi River views. A 24/7 fitness center and The Spa, led by Spa Director Toni Sullivan, are also set to open later this year.

Throughout the hotel, guests can find a curated art collection featuring local artists and those inspired by the city. Set within indoor and outdoor observation decks on the 33rd and 34th floors is an exhibit designed to honor, celebrate and share stories of the diverse cultures that converged to create New Orleans.
