The spa, one of the largest and most complete in the area, will feature: 10 private treatment rooms, including two wet treatment rooms and six luxurious dry treatment rooms; A couple's therapy suite, also the double VIP suite, that features a private en suite bathroom with a steam shower that includes dual rain showerheads and individual controls for music and lighting; A VIP treatment room with en suite bathroom, which includes the same luxuries as the double VIP suite; and more.

"Treatments from Guerlain Spa will be transformed into a customized moment created for each guest, much like the overall experience our hotel guests expect," said Tod Chambers, general manager at The Roosevelt New Orleans. "From the selection of a personal Guerlain scent to the expertise of Guerlain's highly skilled beauty therapists, our guests and visitors will embark on a journey toward rejuvenation that can only be described as transformational."
