THE SAINT HOTEL REDEFINES NEW ORLEANS LUXURY WITH FIVE NEW SUITES 

Archangel Michael and Archangel Lucifer Master Suites Offer Exotic and

One-of-a-Kind Experiences

 

NEW ORLEANS, LA (January 23, 2014) - The Saint Hotel, the one-of-a-kind luxury boutique property, located in the famous New Orleans French Quarter, has announced the completion of the hotel's five luxury suites. All five suites, named after Michael, Lucifer, Christopher, Gabriel and Raphael, make up the entire second floor of the property and include two "master suites."

In a city known for both temptation and beauty, The Saint Hotel's luxury suites provide just that. Designed by the property's owner, Mark Wyant and his wife, Lorenda Wyant, each suite's interior is sumptuous and full of stunningly beautiful details. From the magnificent Murano glass chandeliers to the stately clawfoot bathtubs in each bathroom, The Saint Hotel's suites are truly luxury redefined.

Egyptian cotton linens with custom throws on every bed ensures guests sleep "Saintly", while Bose® Wave sound systems found in each room allow guests to hook up iPods® and create their own soundtrack. Each suite has at least two 60 inch televisions, with several rooms featuring "hidden televisions" that rise out of the furniture and reveal themselves for an unsurpassed TV-watching experience in bed.

"The addition of our five suites will continue The Saint Hotel's tradition as the number one luxury destination choice in New Orleans," said Mark Wyant, owner and developer of The Saint Hotel. "These are some of the largest suites in the city, providing guests with the most exotic and unforgettable New Orleans experience available."

The Saint Hotel's two 1,800 square foot master suites, named for the opposing Archangels Michael and Lucifer, feature one-of-a- kind design elements rarely seen in a hotel. Each oversized suite includes spacious living and entertainment spaces, as well as a bar and in-room ice maker. Exquisitely honed slabs of elegant floor to ceiling Carrera marble are found throughout each thick plate glass-enclosed bathroom. Luxurious glass showers feature "S" shaped "Saint-ly" doors with elegantly sculpted fleur-de-lis glass door handles. For those seeking a less dramatic showering experience, an optional sheer curtain can be utilized for privacy.

Archangel Michael Suite      

An ethereal haven atop bustling Canal Street, the Archangel Michael Suite truly gives guests a taste of heaven on earth. Cobalt blue floors are off-set by sky-blue ceilings, while blue LED lighting along the ceiling adds a contemporary twist to the space. White and silver mirrored furniture provide a touch of glam against the contrasting shades of blue throughout the two bedroom, two bathroom master suite.  Ten floor-to-ceiling windows create a heavenly flood of natural light throughout the rooms of the suite. Each window is surrounded by white velvet and adorned with custom window shades featuring 6-foot tall images of saints. Tufted white leather couches create a comfortable and welcoming seating area in front of a 60 inch flat screen TV.

An ideal entertaining space, the Archangel Michael Suite features a large kitchen that includes a stainless-steel microwave and full-size refrigerator. The all-white kitchen also acts as a perfect home-away-from-home for guests that may be staying awhile. A glass dining table set underneath a stunning blue Murano glass chandelier and surrounded by four ghost chairs, adds to the entertaining possibilities of the room. French double doors open to one of the suite's bedrooms, located off the dining room.

The oversized, glass-enclosed bathrooms feature full-size Niven Morgan luxury bath products in The Saint Hotel's signature scent, Blue. A sparkling crystal Murano glass chandelier hangs above the angelic white Carrera marble bathroom. Ornate mirrors hang above each sink, and are adorned with rich gold sconces on either side. An oversized shower with two shower heads and a luxurious clawfoot bathtub create a sanctuary in each bathroom.

Stately king-sized beds are the centerpieces of each bedroom. Lavish white leather headboards create a serene retreat in one bedroom, and provide a dynamic contrast against a cobalt blue wall outlined in blue LED lights, in the other.

Archangel Lucifer Suite        

Upon entering the Archangel Lucifer Suite, guests are transported to a world of sinful luxury. The two bedroom, two and a half bathroom master suite boasts a design that incorporates black Carrera marble, seductive red walls, and includes a few surprises only revealed to those who stay there. The black, red and gold color scheme provides a provocative background for the unique architectural elements found within the space. For an added touch of drama, Burgundy red walls are accented by red LED lighting along the ceiling.

Eight floor-to-ceiling windows are surrounded in plush deep red velvet and covered with custom window shades, adorned with visually stimulating imagery. The oversized suite is furnished with antique Victorian pieces that have been refinished with a touch of the outrageous, and provide perfect accents to the overall feel of the space.  Each bedroom features king-size beds with sinfully luxurious bedding.

For the adventurous, the Archangel Lucifer Suite features a private stage equipped with a dance pole, stage lighting and music. A sparkling mirror ball hangs above the stage and provides the finishing touch for an impromptu exotic karaoke performance.

Elegant floor-to-ceiling black Carrera marble is found throughout each glass-enclosed bathroom within the suite. The seemingly evocative bathrooms are fully enclosed in thick plate glass walls. The overall sultry glow of the suite extends into the bathroom with a dramatic three foot black Murano glass chandelier, which sits above a decadent black clawfoot tub with gold legs. Deep red vessel sinks pop against the black granite countertops.
