Conde Nast Traveler places the Saint Hotel in New Orleans on its 2012 Hot List

Only New Orleans Property Chosen to be Featured on The Today Show

 

NEW ORLEANS, LA (April 19, 2012) - The 16th annual Conde Nast Traveler May 2012 Hot List issue a reader's passport to the hottest new hotels and restaurants around the world. The Saint Hotel was selected as one of only 12 U.S. properties on the list of 121.

Of the thousands of new properties that opened in the last year, the award-winning publication's editors visited 172 properties in 49 countries, evaluating each on a set of criteria including service, food, atmosphere and amenities. From Zambia to China to New Orleans, the list includes a vast array of exciting worldwide destinations, 49 of which offer rooms for less than $300 per night.

"We could not be more thrilled that after being open for just three months, The Saint has been selected for Conde Nast Traveler's prestigious 2012 Hot List. There are some incredible properties included in this year's list, and we are honored to be among them", says Mark Wyant, owner and developer of The Saint Hotel.

In addition to The Saint Hotel, the list includes some of the country's premier properties such as Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles, Public in Chicago, Hotel Americano in New York, and also in New Orleans, Hotel Modern.

On Tuesday, April 17, 2012, Lisa Gill, Senior Editor for Conde Nast Traveler presented the publication's 2012 Hot List on The Today Show. Of the 12 U.S. properties on the list, The Saint Hotel was selected as one of the five properties featured on the national television program.

After a more than $45 million dollar purchase and transformation, The Saint Hotel provides the ultimate in luxury lifestyle destination, whether traveling for business or pleasure. The hotel offers guests a new and contemporary feel, while still capturing the sparkling charm and romance of New Orleans.

Each of The Saint's 166 guest rooms offers a tranquil and casual opulence that soothe and stimulate the senses. The sleek and modern, yet cozy, rooms let guests indulge in the finest amenities such as luxurious Egyptian cotton linens, complimentary in-room WiFi, and lavish Niven Morgan signature bath products.

The 8-story Saint Hotel is home to the live jazz venue, Burgundy Bar. The Chicago Speakeasy style lounge pays tribute to the music of Louis Armstrong, featuring live music several nights a week. The sixty-seat Burgundy Bar features deep burgundy walls, stunning burgundy Venetian glass chandeliers and deep red banquettes, all providing the space with a fun, bordello chic ambiance.

Chosen for its unique atmosphere, The Saint Hotel is proud to be New Orleans' first and only member of Marriott's prestigious portfolio of Autograph Collection Hotels.

"The Saint Hotel's timeless yet eclectic merging of the past and present is something guests from all over the world will enjoy. I wanted to create a new, different and exciting hotel choice for the millions of travelers who come to this beautiful city on the bayou," says Mark Wyant. "I feel we have done just that."
