Hospitality management company Davidson Hotels & Resorts announced the addition of The Higgins Hotel & Conference Center to its growing portfolio. Operated by Davidson's lifestyle and luxury division Pivot Hotels & Resorts, the 230-room, Art Deco-inspired boutique hotel is part of Curio Collection by Hilton.
Located in New Orleans' Arts and Warehouse District adjacent to The National WWII Museum, the property was intentionally designed to complement the museum experience. Opened in December 2019, The Higgins Hotel & Conference Center has four era-inspired dining options (including a rooftop bar), 18,000 square feet of high-tech meeting and event space and more. Good to know: All proceeds support the museum's educational mission and programs.
The National WWII Museum tells the story of the American experience in the war that changed the world: Why it was fought, how it was won and what it means today, so that all generations will understand the price of freedom and be inspired by what they learn. Through exhibits, multimedia experiences and thousands of personal accounts, the museum takes visitors on an immersive tour of World War II through every theater of war, as well as the home front. The Higgins Hotel & Conference Center's name reflects the contributions of the extraordinary entrepreneur, Andrew Higgins, who designed and built over 20,000 boats in New Orleans that were used in every major amphibious assault of World War II.
