Kimpton Hotel Fontenot had their ribbon cutting celebration for the new hotel located at 501 Tchoupitoulas Street in New Orleans' Central Business District. And we wanted to pass along some images from the event, in case you'd like to use them with coverage.

The event included comments from Council member Jay H. Banks; Julius Feltus, Senior Advisor to Mayor LaToya Cantrell; Kimpton CEO Mike DeFrino; JMI Realty President Greg Clay; and Kimpton Hotel Fontenot General Manager Jesseca Malecki.

Guests were treated to performances from the hotel's nonprofit partner The Roots of Music, who was also presented with a check. The evening's entertainment also included "The Songbird of New Orleans," Robin Barnes. And guests were able to tour the hotel and try delightful bites and beverages from Kimpton Hotel Fontenot's restaurant and bar concepts: Peacock Room and Gospel Coffee & Boozy Treats.
