Only the world’s greatest cities are home to Four Seasons. New Orleans has always deserved to be among them, but it had to be the right time, the right place. It had to be 2 Canal Street, on the famous streetcar line, with awe-inspiring views of the Mississippi River.
Located at the convergence of Canal and Poydras Streets on the Mississippi River waterfront, in the heart of New Orleans, adjacent to the French Quarter, the central business district, and the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, the project consists of 401 hotel rooms and suites located in the building’s lower floors with approximately 88 private residences starting on the 21st floor.
For many, the most distinctive feature of the historic landmark World Trade Center is the two-story rooftop cupola. Originally a restaurant in the round, this space is a spectacular sightseeing attraction – a celebration of African American culture in Louisiana – the music, the food and traditions. Henry Louis Gates, the distinguished professor of African and African American Research at Harvard University, collaborated with Tulane’s Lawrence Powell to create a rooftop cultural exhibit and observation deck.Guests take express elevators to the 33rd floor for breathtaking, panoramic views of the city and the river. This view is too grand not to be shared with the public.
