NEW ORLEANS, FL – DEC 4, 2015: The former University of New Orleans (UNO) building on Canal Street was purchased by NewcrestImage LLC, a hotel development firm based in Texas.

NewcrestImage has plans to renovate the 13-story UNO tower into two hotels:

  1.  TownePlace Suites by Marriott with 105 rooms (for extended stays)
  2. SpringHill Suites by Marriott with 78 rooms (for 1 or two night stays)

The two hotels will share the same common areas such as the registration desk, lobby, breakfast area, bar, exercise room and laundry room to name a few.

The building has been vacant since Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans in 2005. The two hotels are slated to open by December 2016 if everything goes as planned.
