This famous hotel and convention center had previously been closed down for years. After millions of dollars of renovations they've finally re-opened as one of the nicest places in town.
Prior to the Orion Mardi Gras ball some friends and I spent some time in their beautiful bar. It's a very nice modern lounge. Some of our friends had a room there for the night so we got to take a look at the rooms they're offering. Really nice with a wonderful view of the Mississippi.
Neat fact. The bartender said that they'd turned Huey Long's old tunnel into a private dining room and wine cellar. Very cool.
