The 1959 New Orleans Oil & Gas Building - designed in the international style by August Perez & Associates and Edward B. Silverstein & Associates - resides on the National Register of Historic Places. It serves as one of the few examples of this style of architecture in the central business district of New Orleans.
Today, the building serves as a framework for adaptive reuse as a 176-room full-service Canopy brand Hilton hotel with a 4,200 SF street-level restaurant. The building’s rehabilitated curtain wall provides for maximum daylight and offers unparalleled views of the French Quarter.
Canopy is a new lifestyle brand that was developed by Hilton to accommodate the needs of the contemporary leisure and business traveler. The key element of the brand is to celebrate the unique components of the region in which they are located. Bergmann worked in conjunction with Seifert Murphy, a Dallas-based interior design firm, to deliver this new and exciting hotel to the Crescent City.
