Hilton New Orleans Riverside Wraps Meeting Space Reno

The 1,622-room Hilton New Orleans Riverside, located adjacent to the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, has completed a $5 million renovation of its third floor meeting spaces. The newest revamp signals the end of an all-encompassing renovation and restoration initiative to the hotel’s meeting spaces, for a total investment of $14 million.

Conceptualized by Watermark Design Studio, the newly debuted design pays homage to the hotel’s surroundings, capturing the energy and evolution of New Orleans with a relaxed French-inspired design. The restoration brings a full transformation to the third floor, which is home to the St. James Ballroom, St. Charles Ballroom, Jefferson Ballroom and 16 separate meeting rooms for networking, small meetings and medium sized conferences accommodating up to 1,000 guests.

Highlights of the renovation include new furnishings and finishes presenting a contemporary color palette in hues of blue and gold and geometric patterns. Grand chandeliers adorn the renovated spaces, while enhanced sound and optical systems further transform the rooms. The new aesthetic continues into The District reception area with details such as graphic gold carpeting, dramatic lighting fixtures and rich wood furniture to modernize the community space accommodating up to 650 guests.

The 8,687-square-foot St. Charles Ballroom, with a capacity of up to 1,350 guests, incorporates a bold geometric carpet, four crystal chandeliers, intricate crown molding designs and statement wall mirrors. The St. James Ballroom, accommodating up to 700 guests, has lavender accent walls, tiered chandeliers, and sleek sconces to complete the space.

Other notable renovations included in the $14 million project include the 2017 $6.4 million restoration of the 26,894-square-foot Grand Ballroom and Grand Salon located on the first floor. In addition, the second level Exhibition Center, renamed “Churchill,” completed a $1.8 million renovation along with a new pre-function area complete with slate grey armchairs, modern bronze side tables and abstract wall paintings.
