Mosaic tile was once covered by carpet is now re-exposed throughout the hotel’s main lobby.

A remake of the Blue Room is complete with gleaming chandeliers and architectural details that delight. The space is now used for events such as weddings, banquets, Sunday Brunch and live entertainment that appeals to all ages.

Architectural elements that were hidden for decades, such as handmade plaster work in elevator lobbies, mosaic floors and coffered ceilings are now seen throughout the hotel.

The Sazerac Bar, fully restored, is where patrons can once again enjoy the Art Deco-style murals by artist Paul Ninas and woodwork surrounding the bar giving it a welcoming warmth. Ninas, a pioneer modernist, moved to New Orleans in 1932 and painted the murals shortly thereafter.

On the outside of the hotel, workers found a Grunewald sign that had been covered with pieces of lead for about 85 years. The sign is now re-exposed at the University Place entrance.
