City and state officials are finalizing a plan to use a temporarily-closed Central Business District hotel as shelter for the homeless.
Legislators say the Hilton Garden Inn-New Orleans French Quarter Downtown intends to provide homeless residents a space to sleep and eat for the next 30 days.
During an interview yesterday, the hotel general manager said they will first screen guests for COVID-19, then once approved they will have access to three meals a day, clean rooms and laundry service.
The hotel is waiting for state officials to agree to cover costs before the plan is put into action.
