Construction is underway on Bywater Hotel at 4200 St. Claude Avenue.

The hotel will have 10 sleeping units and off-street parking. There are up to 3 bedrooms per unit, bringing the total count of bedrooms to 24.

Bywater Hotel has faced some set backs, including a deferral from The Architectural Review Committee (ARC) of the Historic District Landmarks Commission (HLC). ARC stated concern about the appearance of the hotel:

the building needs some additional detailing at an intermediate scale to break up the façade and give it more architectural interest

The design has since been modified and construction is underway.
