Conti Street Hotel Gets $7.8M Modern Makeover

Local owners are breathing new life into a 30-plus-year-old hotel property in the French Quarter. The Hotel Le Marais at 717 Conti St. is reopening after a $7.8 million renovation.

The property between Royal and Bourbon streets, formerly known as St. Ann and Marie Antoinette, has undergone a contemporary face lift.

Wayne Ducote and Joseph Jaeger Jr. are principals with 717 Conti LLC, the entity that owns the 66-room property hotel. Their upgrades include makeovers for all guestrooms and public spaces and a new lobby lounge. The facility also features a private courtyard and heated pool.

Le Marais takes its name from a district in Paris known for its history and architecture. It will be operated under the management of the New Orleans Hotel Collection, a group that includes the Bourbon Orleans, Dauphine Orleans, Wyndham Riverfront, 7 on Fulton, St. Louis Hotel, Crown Plaza New Orleans Airport and Audubon Cottages.
