The former Baronne Inn and Suites in the Central Business District is set to reopen this month as a completely renovated and rebranded Fairfield Inn and Suites.

The 103-room hotel at 346 Baronne St. is in a historic building that once housed the Crescent City Electric Company in 1910. It features the Marriott brand’s new design and décor, according to a news release that did not specify an opening date.
