Courtyard New Orleans Downtown/Iberville Completes Conversion
- Oct 22, 2012
The multimillion-dollar conversion of the Courtyard New Orleans Downtown/Iberville is now complete. Formerly known as Iberville Suites, the property was refashioned into a Courtyard by Marriott boutique hotel.
The 910 Iberville St. hotel sits in the French Quarter, just one block from Bourbon and Canal streets. The property adjoins The Ritz-Carlton New Orleans, as the two hotels were one property until the late 1990s, when the estate was redeveloped into the The Ritz-Carlton New Orleans and the Iberville Suites. The building, erected in 1878, was originally a thriving premier department store.
The Courtyard New Orleans Downtown/Iberville fuses 19th century glamour and historic architecture with modern design features. The 230-key hotel features luxurious, modern guest rooms that were renovated during the conversion. Rooms are comfortably spacious and feature elements such as free WiFi and a flatscreen TV, a wet bar with coffee maker and mini fridge, and a desk. The 140 suites also offer separate sleeping and living areas, with desk and sleeper sofa. Suites are available for extended stays, as well.
The hotel lobby has been reimagined as the central hub of the hotel. The conventional front desk has been replaced by a freestanding welcome pedestal to offer guests a more intimate check in. Seating options abound in the lobby and range from a communal table to private lounge areas and media booths equipped with high-definition televisions. The signature GoBoard technology is also available on site.
Various dining options range from a sundry/convenience store to deliveries from local restaurants, as well as the adjoining Ritz Carlton’s Vieux Carre Café for American cuisine, including breakfasts and Starbucks coffees, and the M Bistro, with eclectic cuisine and fresh seafood. The Davenport Lounge also offers an eclectic menu of festive French Quarter dining, as well as live entertainment on selected nights.
Courtyard guests also have signing privileges at the adjoining Ritz-Carlton’s resistance pool, fitness center, spa, spa restaurant, sauna and steam room.
The Courtyard New Orleans Downtown/Iberville is a member of the Marriott Rewards frequent travel program.
