The Big Easy has a new luxury hotel, which is now probably the best major chain hotel in the city. While it’s not bookable with points, it’s at least worth being aware of, as rates are fairly reasonable (at least as of now).
Basics of the new Four Seasons New Orleans
The Four Seasons New Orleans opened on July 21, 2021. The Four Seasons features 341 rooms and 92 condos. It’s located in a historic 33-story tower — specifically in the former International Trade Mart building, which used to be known as the World Trade Center New Orleans.
The hotel is located on Canal Street, on the banks of the Mississippi River. To one side of the hotel is the French Quarter, while to the other side is the Warehouse District.
While the exterior of the hotel is classic, the interior looks modern and gorgeous, as you’d expect from a new Four Seasons. The rooms here range in size from 438 square feet for a standard accommodation, all the way to 2,439 square feet for the presidential suite.
The Four Seasons New Orleans features two restaurants, a bar, a spa, a gym, a fifth floor rooftop pool, and a two-level rooftop observation deck.
Four Seasons New Orleans rates & how to book
What are rates like at the Four Seasons New Orleans? The lowest rate I’m seeing is $300 per night, and rates go up from there. As you’d expect, rates differ seasonally, based on the day of the week, and based on what’s going on in town.
While this is probably New Orleans’ most expensive hotel, this is among the cheapest Four Seasons city properties in the United States, at least based on current pricing.
If you’re going to book this hotel (or any Four Seasons), you absolutely should book through a travel advisor who is affiliated with Four Seasons Preferred Partner. With this program, eligible travel advisors can add value to your stay without it costing you extra. They can add perks like complimentary breakfast (including via in-room dining), a hotel credit, an upgrade subject to availability, and more.
Best of all, Four Seasons Preferred Partner can generally be combined with any rates you’ll find directly with Four Seasons. For what it’s worth, the upgrades through this program are also prioritized over upgrades through other programs, so you’ll want to use Preferred Partner over a program like Virtuoso or Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts. Ford is always happy to help with Preferred Partner bookings, and can be reached at [email protected]

Why the Four Seasons New Orleans is a cool addition
I visited New Orleans earlier this year for the first time as an adult, and had an interesting experience. I loved the food, the culture, and the history. I didn’t personally love the “partying” side of New Orleans, though, but that’s more a personal preference than anything. That part of New Orleans felt to me more like Las Vegas, and I found it to be overwhelming.
I stayed at the Hyatt Centric New Orleans French Quarter because I’m loyal to World of Hyatt, though admittedly that’s far from a luxury hotel. There’s also a Ritz-Carlton (which just looks okay), as well as a variety of independent luxury hotels, which are probably the best options.
I kind of like the idea of the Four Seasons. It’s not right in the heart of the French Quarter, so at least inside it might feel like a peaceful haven, even though it’s right by the French Quarter. And I kind of like that it’s in a high-rise not on Bourbon Street, because otherwise sleeping in New Orleans can be a challenge based on all the noise.
The Four Seasons New Orleans opened in July 2021, and is now regarded as New Orleans’ most luxurious chain hotel. With 341 rooms, it’s not exactly a boutique hotel, but in my experience Four Seasons does a better job than any other brand when it comes to maintaining high standards even at big hotels.
