After a $15 million project led by San Francisco designer Tamara Sypult of Interior Design Workshop, The Omni Royal Orleans is ready to show off its fresh new look. Inspired by the city’s history and spirit, the Omni’s improved guestrooms, color schemes and interior spaces pay homage to the lively New Orleans culture. Dressed in blue, gold, chocolate brown and rust, the hotel gives off a vibrant and cheerful personality. To highlight the city, the walls feature artwork and photography based on Louisiana imagery from the city’s local artists.

Guestrooms and suites have been updated with custom-designed furniture and modern amenities as well as the addition of 24 balconies. As a signature feature, the now 49 balconies represent the old Colonial Spanish and French architectural styles of New Orleans. Intricate designs on the custom carpeting mimic the ornamental lace ironwork of the city’s balconies, which pairs nicely with the super-fine drapery fabric of the same design.

Upon entering the hotel, visitors will notice the main entrance and staircase still possess their regal grandeur, but have been refreshed with larger light fixtures and warm color tones. Custom furniture and fixtures were also brought in from the New Orleans antique district. The hotel also called upon Tai Ping of Axminster to utilize historical fabrics for carpeting in the public spaces.
