New Orleans airport gets no bids for new terminal hotel
KENNER - Louis Armstrong International Airport's plan for a prominent hotel at the front entrance to its new $807 million passenger terminal has failed to attract any interest.
NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune reports the New Orleans Aviation Board did not receive any responses to its recent request for proposals to build a nationally branded, full-service, 140-room hotel connected to the terminal.
The new terminal is under construction and slated to be finished by October 2018.
Airport spokeswoman Michelle Wilcut said in a statement Wednesday the board was disappointed to not receiving any proposals, but they would continue to explore all options.
Airport officials estimated the hotel would be a $17 million project.
