New Orleans’ Windsor Court Hotel Updates Ballroom




Windsor Court Hotel in New Orleans is opening a new poolside bar and renovating its ballroom as part of a new, $15 million property renovation, slated to be completed by early October of this year. The project also includes modernizations for all 316 guestrooms and suites, public spaces, including hallways, elevator landings and the Club Level Lounge.

The most notable of the updates is the addition of the Waterman Poolside Bar, which overlooks the property’s 65-foot saltwater pool. Near the facility’s fitness center and spa, the rooftop eatery first opened to hotel and spa guests in April and will open to the public via Resort Pass in mid-July.

Drink selection includes frozen cocktails, wines by the glass, beers and wines on tap, and an assortment of specialty mocktails. The venue also serves a menu of shared plates, salads, sandwiches and wraps, as well as a kids’ menu. The cabana-style bar also offers skyline views and four large-screen TVs.

On the 23rd floor in the La Chinoiserie ballroom, new carpeting, drapery, paint and foyer furniture highlight the cosmetic reboot, while some minor architectural changes to the alcove ceilings help to open up the space, making it appear even larger.

Changes to the rooms and suites include new furniture – living and dining room chairs, custom-designed coffee tables, re-upholstered leather head boards with reading lights, full-length dressing mirrors, Tempur-Pedic sleeper sofas and residential style bedside tables with convenient charging stations – complimented by a new relaxing and inviting Benjamin Moore color scheme. New entryway flooring, fresh room and bath accessories from Restoration Hardware and Arteriors, upgraded bathtubs with Botticino Fiorito marble surrounds, and glass door shower enclosures to replace outdated shower curtains round out the room updates.

In premium suites, which already have fully stocked mini-bars, additional mini-refrigerators were installed.

The renovations, which began earlier this year, were a collaborative effort, with Metairie, Louisiana-based contractor Broadmoor helming the construction. Moncur Design Associates spearheaded the revamp of the Club Level Lounge and 23rd floor ballroom, and Flick Mars led the redesign of the guest rooms and corridors. The 2018 makeover comes on the heels of a much larger, $22 million hotel restoration in 2012, which included new décor in all guestrooms, refurbishments in the food and beverage outlets and other public spaces, and the addition of The Spa at Windsor Court.
