History

Explore the hotel’s evolution throughout the years

A haven for the discriminating traveler, Windsor Court Hotel is the crown jewel of New Orleans, providing unmatched elegance and luxury with superior service and grace. The Windsor Court was developed by New Orleans businessman James “Jimmy” Coleman, Jr. in 1984 and was purchased in the fall of 2009 by an ownership team led by The Berger Company of New Orleans in partnership with Crow Family Holdings.

In 2018, the 23-story landmark hotel underwent a $15 million renovation that included the addition of Waterman Poolside Bar, the hotel’s newest on-site dining option, exclusively open to hotel and spa guests only. All 316 of the hotel’s guestrooms received an impressive modern refresh, including a new color scheme, new room accessories (lighting, bath amenities, bar trays and ice buckets), re-upholstered headboards with built-in reading lights, new in-room furniture and new entry flooring. 

The hotel has previously undergone other renovations, including a $22 million project in 2011-2012 that restored guestrooms and the Club Level Lounge; re-conceptualized the celebrated Le Salon; revitalized The Grill Room, Polo Club Lounge, pool area and meeting spaces; and added The Spa at Windsor Court. In 2016, the hotel made additional enhancements to its food and beverage outlets. Polo Club Lounge was expanded to include the addition of approximately 930 square feet, allowing for more seating and an increase in performance space. The hotel also celebrated the grand opening of its first on-the-go eatery, Café Anglais, which features Illy Coffee and house-made fare.
