Construction on Canal Street Hotel to Begin Soon, Will Be Midcentury Modern Themed

The hotel will reopen in summer 2017.

Recalling its 1960s roots, hotelier Michael Valentino says the renovated Canal Street Hotel will have a "cool 60’s midcentury architecture theme." Valentino, who bought the hotel for $4.8 million last year, says construction is set to begin "now," and will take place over 15 months.

Valentino's team plans to restore the property into a 224-room hotel, with 60 of the rooms extended stay to be targeted at patients and employees of the University Medical Center.

The plan is for the hotel to open summer 2017.
