Hilton Shreveport unveils extensive renovation

Hilton Shreveport

Refreshed design blends modern elegance with local heritage to enhance the guest experience.

HREVEPORT, LA – Located adjacent to the Shreveport Convention Center, Hilton Shreveport announces the completion of a multimillion-dollar renovation including an extensive redesign of the guest rooms, meeting spaces, lobby, rooftop pool, fitness center, exterior and more. The hotel is managed by HRI Lodging and the design was led by Washington DC-based 3877, with support from Benson & Falgout and Moline Construction.

“We are pleased to unveil the refreshed Hilton Shreveport to locals and visitors to the area,” says Marianne Nelson, general manager of Hilton Shreveport. “Our renewed property offers modern amenities that cater to the discerning needs of business travelers and groups gathering at the nearby convention center, while also providing an immersive experience for leisure travelers.”

 Design by 3877

With design led by 3877, Hilton Shreveport’s refined aesthetic embodies the essence of the neighborhood’s rich history and lively atmosphere, fitting its central location connected to the Convention Center and historic downtown. A warm, neutral color palette is woven throughout the property and complemented by pops of rich colors including forest green, cobalt blue and purple that bring the various spaces to life. The patterns and textures used throughout the hotel were thoughtfully selected to reflect Shreveport’s key signifiers, translating iconic elements like the Long-Allen bridge, the Red River and the beautiful American Rose Center into touchpoints of connectivity for guests to discover throughout their stay. Additional design elements include historic textiles and creative art installations such as vintage photos of the city’s past displayed at the bar. The sophisticated design approach aims to enhance the guest experience by incorporating modern elements that meet today’s standards while simultaneously embracing localized elements that create a distinct sense of place.

The exterior of the Hilton Shreveport was also revamped with fresh paint and upgraded signage, breathing new life into the look and feel of the building. An outdoor seating area was created to expand the hotel’s common spaces and allow for ample seating across the entire first floor of the property.

Lobby

The reimagined lobby introduces a stunning focal centerpiece with a freestanding fireplace surrounded by rich green herringbone wall tile that can be enjoyed from either side of the room. Flanking the sides of the fireplace, sleek lounge-style seating including plush blue couches, chairs and modern footstools invite guests to linger longer in the spacious common area.

Guestroom & Suites

A welcome respite for business and leisure travelers alike, Hilton Shreveport’s 311 contemporary guest rooms were brightened and refreshed with cream blackout draperies, chic light fixtures including bedside sconces and table lamps, and local artwork. Plush in-room seating options provide a mix of lounge chairs, ottomans and desk chairs covered in patterned grey, dark blue and brown fabrics to complement existing carpeting and rich wood tones found throughout the rooms. Amenities include 42-inch LED TVs, mini-refrigerators, Serta Suite Dreams® bedding, work desks and Crabtree and Evelyn® bath products.

 Public spaces

Overlooking the city skyline, the hotel’s rooftop features a new poolside mural created by local Shreveport artist, KaDavien Baylor, depicting various elements of the city’s rich culture and history, from a jazz musician to the Long–Allen Bridge and annual Red River Balloon Rally. The colorful mosaic offers a playful backdrop to the serene pool deck which features pergolas filled with new outdoor furniture and cozy firepits, a waterfall feature alongside the side of the pool, and a small room with a roll-up glass door offset from the pool deck. The hotel’s fitness center has also been upgraded with Precor, Peloton and Hydroflow equipment along with updated millwork, flooring and wallcoverings.

The hotel offers three dining options, including Coffee Talk Cafe for Starbucks coffee and pastries, 104 Market serving up classic American cuisine in a casual bistro setting, and River & Rye for dinner and drinks while watching a game on the big screen.

Meetings & Events

Hilton Shreveport boasts 4 newly revamped meeting rooms to complement the Shreveport Convention Center’s more than 240,000 square feet of event space. New touches include green abstract carpeting, dramatic chandelier light fixtures, and fresh wallpaper. An additional smaller meeting room was also added, allowing for intimate group functions of up to seven people, along with new black and gold benches in the pre-function area. Updated A/V and monitors were also installed throughout the flexible rooms.
