For our crew members and site managers, being able to travel to some of the most historical and beautiful cities in the country is a major job perk, and our most recent refinishing project is no exception. Located in New Orleans, the Windsor Court Hotel and The Refinishing Touch have just completed a second project to refinish its unique interior as part of its plans to renovate the entire hotel. This is the first full renovation the hotel has seen in 13 years.
While our crew members dedicate long days to making sure their work is above par and finished on (if not before) schedule, in their downtime they got the chance to experience all that the New Orleans culture had to offer, from the food to the architecture to the night life, made easy by the Windsor Court’s convenient location to the city’s historic French Quarter.
But it’s not just the city’s offerings that The Refinishing Touch crew got to take advantage of. The Windsor Court Hotel has quite the history itself. Built in 1984 by a New Orleans businessman, the Windsor Court is the tallest building in New Orleans and is currently the 10th tallest hotel in the US. It also boasts an impressive art collection, including pieces by Anthony Van Dyck, Thomas Gainsborough and Joris-Karl Huysman. The hotel recently returned to local ownership after 18 years and demonstrates the decadent style of New Orleans as the only four star/four diamond hotel in the city.
After previously working with the hotel in 2005, The Refinishing Touch and our crew returned in 2011 to refinish and reupholster the furniture in all 316 rooms of The Windsor Court Hotel, including dining tables, sofas and chairs, among many others. We’re proud to be able to maintain such a great relationships with one of the most awarded hotels in the country.
And if you ever find yourself heading to New Orleans, either for leisure or business, be sure to check in at the luxurious Windsor Court Hotel and see for yourself what this great hotel has to offer. For more information about the hotel or to make a reservation, visit www.windsorcourthotel.com.
