Introducing: Four Points by Sheraton French Quarter
New Orleans, LA - On July 12, 2012, New Orleans' Inn On Bourbon hotel - which has operated for many years at 541 Bourbon Street - officially became Four Points by Sheraton French Quarter. The hotel has entered into a franchise agreement with Starwood Hotels and Resorts. It will continue to operate under the same New Orleans-based ownership and management company.
"We expect that Four Points by Sheraton French Quarter will maintain its long-held reputation as one of New Orleans' most popular hotels," said general manager Beth Ables. "By joining Four Points by Sheraton, we can connect with even more travelers, especially through Starwood's game-changing loyalty program, Starwood Preferred Guest."
Four Points by Sheraton French Quarter offers 186 comfortable and stylish guest rooms, more than 4,000 square feet of market-leading meeting facilities, an outdoor pool, 24 hour fitness and all the other amenities that have made Four Points by Sheraton a favorite with travelers worldwide. The property recently completed a multi-million dollar renovation. Café Opéra, the hotel's new full-service restaurant, recently opened under the direction of Chef Philippe Andreani. A native of France, Andreani has worked in restaurants and hotels across Europe, including the Hotel Ritz in Paris. Four Points by Sheraton French Quarter's popular Puccini Bar has also been revamped, and now offers an expanded menu of specialty drinks.
