Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts announced plans for a new hotel that will open in New Orleans late next year.

The hotelier chose the city for its next hotel, noting that it is “an epicenter of history, culture, and activity,” with “jazz music at every turn.”

The 341-room Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences New Orleans will be built on the site of the former World Trade Center on Canal Street as part of a 33-story skyscraper that will also offer condominiums.

Designed by Modernist architect Edward Durell Stone, who also designed New York’s Radio City Music Hall and the Museum of Modern Art, the World Trade Center was built in 1968 to celebrate the 250th anniversary of New Orleans. The building was gutted and abandoned in the post-Katrina era

The groundbreaking for the renovations to the building took place in May 2019. It is immediately adjacent to the city’s Ernest N. Morial Convention Center and close to the French Quarter and the financial district.  Many rooms will feature views of the Mississippi River.
