New Orleans, LA, July 19, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- In the early morning hours of Sunday, July 22 2012, the old Claiborne Towers Building at 1732 Canal St. will officially implode. In a mere eight seconds, the landscape of the New Orleans hotel industry will take a dramatic turn, though truth will tell that the more dramatic changes in this bustling tourist town have already begun taking place. New Orleans is growing.
In preparation for the 2013 Super Bowl, New Orleans area hotels have spent approximately 526 million dollars in the last year and a half. A sizable portion has been allocated toward new inventory, but the majority of this figure has been used on upgrades. Over two dozen local hotels are currently undergoing, intend to begin, or have recently completed major renovations.
Late last year, New York-based Carey Watermark investors notably purchased the Hilton Garden Inn New Orleans. With plans of injecting millions in upgrades to the 155-room property, the interest from outside investors is a testament to the burgeoning renaissance the city is experiencing as a world class destination.
The Big easy has experienced a noticeable response to the local improvements. Despite summer months being a conventional slow season, area hotels have often times found themselves booked near 100% capacity.
Located in premium city center location, the Hilton Garden Inn New Orleans is a block from the New Orleans Morial Convention Center & riverfront streetcar terminal, offering convenient access to the French Quarter, Superdome, Casino, and more.
