New Orleans—Virgin Hotels has announced its plans to open a new 225-key hotel in New Orleans’ Warehouse District. Virgin Hotels New Orleans will be developed by Dallas-based Gatehouse Capital. The hotel is slated to break ground in April 2017 and open its doors to guests in early 2019.

Located at 550 Baronne St., close to the central business district, the new hotel will feature cutting-edge amenities such as a rooftop pool and lounge, a fitness center and dedicated meeting and event spaces.
