After a two-year renovation and restoration, the Alder Hotel pays tribute to its mid-century modern roots. Formerly the historic Bristow Tower originally designed by Mathes Bergman (now Mathes Brierre), the facility served as a residency for physicians, nurses and other hospital staff of Southern Baptist Hospital. The building was left vacant between 1995 and 2015, but is now part of the Ochsner Baptist campus and was redeveloped into the Alder Hotel. As a part of its renovation and restoration, Bristow Tower was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2016. Inspired by the 1950s and 1960, AOS worked with CDI Solutions to source furnishings for the reception, lobby and breakfast area, business center, and conference room. The result is a neutral color palette featuring pops of color and clean lines to complement classic trademarks of the International Style, including crisp angular designs and lack of adornments. Throughout the hotel, the design also features period photography from mid-20th century life in Uptown from The Historic New Orleans Collection. The sleek 90-room hotel run by Valentino New Orleans Hotels offers a charming, reminiscent stay for patients’ families, university students’ families and tourists nestled in the Uptown neighborhood and near the bustling Freret Street corridor.
