The hotel will sit right next to the Ritz-Carlton New Orleans on Canal Street, at the corner of Burgundy Street. Wyant plans to incorporate some of the building's history with details like pressed tin and lion head friezes.
Additionally, a hotel restaurant by the name of Sweet Olive will feature New Orleans-inspired flavors:
"Renowned executive Chef Michael Stoltzfus of the ever-popular Coquette in the Garden District once again lends his modern touch to classic American cooking at Sweet Olive at The Saint Hotel. Serving updated takes on Southern and New Orleans cooking, Sweet Olive will offer a constantly changing seasonal menu focusing on local produce and products.
'When we met Mark and heard his vision for the hotel, it was an immediate connection for both of us,' said Chef Stoltzfus. 'Sweet Olive will be a complement to my current restaurant Coquette and I will be overseeing the kitchens at both locations.'”
Rates will start at $149 per night, and the hotel will begin taking reservations September 1.
