SHREVEPORT, Louisiana—Located adjacent to the Shreveport Convention Center, Hilton Shreveport announces the completion of a renovation including a redesign of the guestrooms, meeting spaces, lobby, rooftop pool, fitness center, exterior, and more. The hotel is managed by HRI Lodging and the design was led by Washington, D.C.-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,” said 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.”
With design led by 3877, Hilton Shreveport’s aesthetic embodies the neighborhood’s history and atmosphere, fitting its location connected to the Convention Center and downtown. A neutral color palette is woven throughout the property and complemented by pops of colors including forest green, cobalt blue, and purple. The patterns and textures used throughout the hotel were selected to reflect Shreveport’s signifiers, translating elements like the Long-Allen bridge, the Red River, and the American Rose Center. Additional design elements include textiles and art installations such as vintage photos of the city’s past displayed at the bar.
The exterior of the Hilton Shreveport was also revamped with fresh paint and upgraded signage. An outdoor seating area was created to expand the hotel’s common spaces and allow for more seating across the first floor.
The lobby introduces a centerpiece with a freestanding fireplace surrounded by green herringbone wall tile. Flanking the sides of the fireplace, lounge-style seating including blue couches, chairs, and footstools finish the space.
For business and leisure travelers, Hilton Shreveport’s 311 guestrooms were refreshed with blackout draperies, light fixtures including bedside sconces and table lamps, and local artwork. In-room seating options include lounge chairs, ottomans, and desk chairs covered in grey, dark blue, and brown fabrics.
The hotel’s rooftop has a poolside mural created by local Shreveport artist, KaDavien Baylor. The mosaic offers a backdrop to the pool deck, which has pergolas with new outdoor furniture and firepits, a waterfall 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 refreshed with Precor, Peloton, and Hydroflow equipment along with updated millwork, flooring, and wallcoverings.
The hotel offers three dining options, including Coffee Talk Cafe, 104 Market, and River & Rye.
Hilton Shreveport has four new meeting rooms to go with the Shreveport Convention Center’s more than 240,000 square feet of event space. New touches include green abstract carpeting, chandelier light fixtures, and wallpaper. An additional smaller meeting room was added, allowing for 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 rooms.
