Holiday Inn is taking the plunge into the upscale hotel market by opening a new property in New Orleans in the middle of the pandemic.

Holiday Inn Club Vacations New Orleans Resort has opened at 203 Carondelet Street in a 127-year old building.

The property had been a luxury apartment building at one time.

Holiday Inn purchased the building outright and converted it into a 105-villas.

The new property employs 45 in mostly full time positions.

These new villas are one and two bedroom layouts with full kitchens and living rooms.

The top floor features a swimming pool and fitness center complete with a rooftop terrace.

The ground floor offers a marketplace for shopping and the Maritime Bar and Lounge which will open later in the year.
