The Westin New Orleans recently completed a massive, $30 million revitalization, touching on every part of the hotel. Major renovations were made to guestrooms, social spaces and meeting and event spaces. New dining establishments and meeting venues were added as well.

“The renovation has been an exciting step toward elevating the hotel to the Westin brand standards and expectations of Westin hotel loyalists,” said Jerry Reyes, general manager, The Westin New Orleans. “The spectacular views at Observatory Eleven, Bistro at the Bend and Riverbend Ballroom are like no other in the city and only enhance our guests’ experience with us. Our revitalized guestrooms, lobby and meeting spaces breathe life back into the hotel, preserving the peaceful luxury that our guests know and love.”

The new Observatory Eleven bar and lounge overlooks the Mississippi River from the 11th floor. A circular bar is the focal point of the lounge and serves a curated cocktail menu. The new restaurant at the hotel, Bistro at the Bend, also overlooks the river and serves American southern cuisine incorporating Louisiana flavors and local seafood.

The new event space, Riverbend Ballroom, is large enough to fit 280 guests, offering floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the river and city.
