Total redesign of suites and public spaces allow extended stay guests to thrive on the road

NEW ORLEANS, LA - August 16, 2012- The Residence Inn New Orleans Downtown has undergone a complete renovation of its 231 suites and public spaces, transforming it into an upscale hotel, designed to enhance the comfort and lifestyle of travelers on the road today. The newly refreshed hotel offers guests flexible spaces and amenities to help maintain a healthy balance and routine while traveling.

"When on the road for an extended period, our guests need space to spread out, to maintain their life's pace and restore their energy," said Diane Mayer, vice president and global brand manager, Residence Inn. "Residence Inn offers a seamless blend of modern style and functionality that allows them to settle in and thrive."

The spacious, residential-style studio, one bedroom, and two bedroom suites offer accommodations that are larger than traditional hotel guestrooms. The spacious layout provides separate zones where guests can relax, work, eat, and sleep, thereby maintaining their routines while away from home. The updated kitchens outfitted with full-sized refrigerators and stainless steel appliances make living on the road easier for both business travelers on long stays and families on holiday. With a larger, expansive workspace, free high speed Internet access, and a multitude of easily accessible outlets, guests are able to work efficiently throughout the suite. New sectional sofas, 37 inch flat screen televisions and luxurious bathrooms with extra storage space make it possible for travelers to live and rest comfortably.  Contemporary and stylish décor, featuring natural light and refreshing colors are all elements that improve guests' productivity and energy.   

Conveying the same feeling of comfortable living on the road, the hotel's re-designed public spaces have been transformed into multi-functional living spaces where guests can relax or collaborate on their own terms. The new open communal living space allows guests to connect with friends, family or colleagues in a modern living room style lounge with free Wi-Fi.

With more than 620 hotels in North America, Europe and South America, Residence Inn, a Marriott power brand credited with introducing the extended-stay lodging segment 37 years ago, offers guests lower rates for longer stays. With a free hot breakfast offered every day that features a variety of quality items and healthy alternatives, Residence Inn helps guests prepare for the day ahead and maintain a healthy balance while on the road. In addition to the robust free hot breakfast offering, other valuable amenities include grocery delivery service, 24-hour market, fully functional kitchens in each suite, fitness room and guest laundry room.

Residence Inn participates in the company's award-winning Marriott Rewards® program, which enables members to earn their choice of points toward free vacations or frequent flyer mileage in their preferred airline program for dollars spent at more than 3,200 Marriott hotels worldwide.
