The Story

The interior design of The Westin New Orleans Canal Place – a Marriott Bonvoy hotel – uses patterns, colours, textures and forms to create a visually pleasing and comfortable environment for Westin hotel guests to experience.

Moncur Design Associates, Inc. in Toronto, Canada designed the interiors as part of a $30 million renovation for The Berger Company.

The design references the hotel’s location by the majestic Mississippi River and embodies the charm of the city of New Orleans and its vitality, history, culture, architecture and natural beauty.

Ulster worked closely with Moncur Design Associates, Inc. from a detailed design brief to design and manufacture carpet that realized their design vision. We provided carpet for the lobby, lobby bar, ballroom, prefunction areas, meeting rooms and guestroom corridors.

Our designers utilized a common color bank to create custom carpets that, much like the Mississippi River, provide continuity and natural flow throughout the hotel. The darker tones and fretwork design in the lobby spaces transition to lighter shades and flowing patterns in the meeting spaces. Both areas are distinctive in their own right, yet the overall color palette, detailing and addition of accent colors enhance the hotel’s signature style.

Ulster take pride in the long-term relationships we have built up over many years. The Westin New Orleans Canal Place represents the latest successful project between Ulster, Moncur Design Associates, Inc. and The Berger Company.
