The latest addition to the city’s luxury accommodations is the Four Seasons New Orleanslocated on the Mississippi Riverfront. There is also the latest lifestyle brand to open in the Warehouse/Arts District, the Virgin Hotels New Orleans, which features multiple dining outlets as well as a rooftop bar and pool. Bringing together the past, present and future, the Canopy by Hilton New Orleans Downtown is just a 10-minute walk to the French Quarter. They offer exclusive Canopy bikes that serve as the perfect way to get around and explore everything that New Orleans has to offer.
