Omni Hotels & Resorts has announced the rebranding of the Wyndham Riverfront New Orleans. In a partnership with Riverfront Lodging, LLC, the hotel has been reflagged today as the Omni Riverfront Hotel.
The hotel features 202 guest rooms and nearly 4,000 square feet of meeting and event space, along with the newly owned Fulton St. Bistro | Bar.
“Omni Hotels & Resorts has a long history in New Orleans, dating back almost 30 years, with the Omni Royal Orleans, and later the Omni Royal Crescent Hotel,” said Mike Deitemeyer, president of Omni Hotels & Resorts. “We are pleased to have a third hotel in this amazing city, and to help make memorable New Orleans experiences for vacationers, business travelers and meeting attendees alike.”
During the last six months, the hotel has undergone a comprehensive $8 million renovation that overhauled and updated many aspects of the property. Throughout the property’s transformation, designers worked diligently to honor the hotel’s vintage past, as well as retain the distinctive New Orleans style and flair.
Guests entering the newly renovated hotel will experience a beautifully appointed open-air lobby with rustic touches of the past. The bar has been rotated 180 degrees to create ample space for guests to relax and indulge in the finest beverages and cuisine, served in a casually elegant atmosphere.
Each guest room has been completely renovated and features white tile entryways, new carpet and furniture, tubs and black tile in the bathrooms, as well as bedside LED reading lamps, 42-inch flat screen televisions, among other high-end guestroom fixtures. The hotel’s meeting space, public spaces and corridors all received a light refresh as well.
Local owners of the hotel include Joe Jeager, Roger Ogden, Daryl Berger and Kenneth Barnes.
