With the first of its kind, the $15 million New Orleans hotel will soon be opening its doors to the public.
In 2017, the first 100 guests will be able to stay in the New Orleans Hotel & Marina (the first of a number of hotel locations in the city) for one night.
“The city of New Orleans is home to the greatest collection of museums in the world, but what it lacks in museums it makes up for in real estate,” said the hotel’s website.
“In order to attract new guests and retain existing guests, we are introducing the New Leasewood Hotel & Resort to the New York area for one year of free overnight stay and access to the most exciting of New York’s finest dining, shopping and entertainment venues.”
New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu (D) said the New L.A. hotel would allow people from all over the world to feel like they are part of the city and to enjoy the sights, experiences and history of the area.
It will also be the first hotel in the United States to feature the New Yorks signature cocktail bar and restaurant.
But the hotel has faced criticism for its low occupancy rate, its lack of accessibility, and its price tag of $15 per night.
“Our guests will enjoy a relaxed, relaxing atmosphere at the New Louisiana Hotel & Marina.
The New Orleans New Least hotel offers more than just the finest accommodations and the best food in the nation,” Landrieus stated in a statement.
“For this reason, we have chosen to award this new venue the New City Award for Excellence in the Design and Implementation of an Accommodation at a Luxury Category.”
The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports that the hotel will offer an option for those staying for less than a night for up to three nights at a time, and that the location of the new hotel has yet to be decided.
The hotel will also include a restaurant, a fitness center and a children’s playground.
New Orleans has a population of about 4.6 million, and is the fifth-largest city in the US with a population density of more than 7.5 people per square kilometer.
According to the website, New Orleans was the first American city to host a World’s Fair in 1799.
However, many locals are wary of the hotel, as the hotel was built to cater to foreign visitors.
