Supplier News: Two New Event Hotels From Four Seasons




Two new Four Seasons-branded hotels lead this week's supplier news in the meetings and events industry.

Four Seasons to Open New Boston Hotel

Looking to book a luxury event in Boston? Four Seasons is prepping to open its latest luxury hotel inside a new 61-story skyscraper in the Back Bay neighborhood. Designed by Henry Cobb of Pei Cobb Freed & Partners in collaboration with Gary Johnson of CambridgeSeven Associates, the building is now the third tallest in the city at 724 feet.

The hotel will have 215 guestrooms (including 41 suites), decorated with original works from the multimillion-dollar art collection. Abundant meeting and events space will include a 2,500 sq. ft. ballroom. Reed Kandalaft is the general manager of Four Seasons Hotel One Dalton Street Boston; he’s worked with the upscale hospitality brand since 2008 in tenures at Four Seasons Resort Hualalai, Four Seasons Hotel at The Surf Club, Damascus and Los Angeles.

A stand-out amenity will be the full-floor spa, as the entire seventh floor of the hotel is devoted to wellness and health. Decked out with Italian mosaics, the wellness center will offer five treatment rooms including a couple’s suite, locker rooms with steam rooms and rain showers, a gym stocked with Precor equipment with views of the city skyline through floor-to-ceiling windows and a 65-foot lap pool that’s described in the press release as the curved pièce de résistance. What’s more, the spa will have a salon for hair, nail and make-up services.

Another talked-about feature of Four Seasons Hotel One Dalton Street Boston is the restaurant. This will be the New England debut for the popular Zuma restaurant, which got its start in the Knightsbridge area of London in 2002. Other F&B outlets at the hotel will include the Trifecta Lobby Bar and One + One which seeks to woo the “power breakfast” crowd.

Construction Kicks Off on Four Seasons New Orleans

Big news in New Orleans event venues: Construction has begun on the Four Seasons New Orleans, the first of the brand’s properties in New Orleans. The new 341-key, 81-residence property is slated to open in 2020.

The structure it's located in, Two Canal, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and has been nearly vacant since Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans in 2005. The restoration, renovation and modernization of this structure will make it one of the largest Four Seasons hotels in the brand’s portfolio.

Residences start on the 19th floor, making them the highest elevated homes in New Orleans, Four Seasons says. The 81 condominium residences and select collection of penthouses on the building’s crowning floors showcase Downtown New Orleans and the French Quarter upriver, along with the Gulf of Mexico downstream.

The new structure has more than 22,500 square feet of amenities, including the entire landmarked Spanish-influenced 29th floor, which was once home to the executive offices of the World Trade Center building and is now devoted to private amenities for residents. Features include a bar and lounge that overlooks the Mississippi River, a children’s playroom, private dining room with a chef’s kitchen, historic hall with a communal dining room and golf simulator room.

Also included is exclusive access to the Four Seasons director of residences and dedicated residential concierge, along with a private lobby with 24-hour doorman, bellman and service staff. Tailored à la carte services are available to residents including in-residence dining and catering, housekeeping, grocery shopping service, valet parking and car service, and mail service.

The Four Seasons Private Residences New Orleans will launch sales later this year. Information on the hotel portion of the property are not yet available.
