Four Points by Sheraton is Now Open in the French Quarter
Although we are a little tardy for the party, we had to let you all know that the Four Points by Sheraton French Quarter opened its doors in June on the very party-friendly Bourbon Street.
The space formerly called the Inn on Bourbon was previously owned by Ramada. Now rebranded as The Four Points, the hotel has 186 rooms, a swimming pool, a 24-hour fitness center, copy/fax center, and free WiFi. Of course, location means everything in New Orleans, and the hotel is in the middle of the action. It’s walking distance to several of the French Quarter’s hot spots, or should we say cool spots, like the House of Blues, the Saenger Theater, Armstrong Park and the Mahalia Jackson Theater for the Performing Arts. Harrah’s Casino is only a mile away.
Keeping true to the New Orleans traditions of serving up tasty Creole delicacies, the hotel has a full-service restaurant, Café Opera, under the guidance of Chef Philippe Andreani from France. And we can't forget about the bar. At Puccini Bar’s, the specialty cocktail is called the French 75.
The only bummer is that it looks like the rooms didn't really get a refresh from their days as the Inn on Bourbon. We're not sure if a renovation is in the works but if one is, it will only mean the rates will increase. Right now, rates start at $179 for a traditional room with two double beds.
