The Starwood branded Aloft Hotel at 225 Baronne in the CBD has finally opened.
Developer HRI Properties spent $100 million on the redevelopment of an old building, turning the former office building into a mixed-use complex that features the Aloft Hotel.
Located at 225 Baronne Street, the Aloft New Orleans Downtown has 188 keys and includes an outdoor Splash pool, 24-hour fitness center and 2,500 square feet of flexible meeting space, and free Wi-Fi.
The development also has 356-space garage on the first 17 floors of the 550,000-square-foot former office building.
Floors 18 through 30 are being converted into 192 residential apartments, with a unit mix that includes 124 one-bedroom apartments, 63 two-bedroom units and five rooftop penthouses with private balconies.
HRI worked with General Contractor Perini on the redevelopment (you can see pics of the construction here).
225 Baronne was built in 1964 by Chicago developer John J. Mack and served as local headquarters for Boeing.
