Blocks away from the Shreveport Convention Center tucked away in a quiet corner of downtown Shreveport stands a one-of-a-kind boutique hotel where romance and relaxation resound in extraordinary fashion. For owner and operator Newton W. Dorsett, recent renovations are a reflection of his passion for quality work, exceptional materials and a vision that continues to grow. And for the clientele, the Remington Suite Hotel provides convenience for corporate business stays, as well as a romantic rendezvous and relaxation for weekend getaways.
When Newton, an oil and gas entrepreneur began renting office space above the run-down Remington, he wasn’t planning on one day owning the property. As fate would have it and through a series of events, Dorsett having absolutely no experience in the hotel industry became the sole owner of the rustic venue popular among film stars like Gerard Butler. A little construction background, attention to materials and detail and fervent dedication all wrapped up into one major transformation, and the result is a spectacular hotel, event venue and meeting space that are brag-worthy.
This pet-friendly property also boasts an in-house spa especially important to Mr. Dorsett who will invite you in for a chat and a pedicure at a moment’s notice. The Remington Suite Hotel is an inexpensive getaway starting at $79 with amenities including an indoor heated pool and Jacuzzi, full service salon and fitness center with certified personal trainer upon request. This boutique hotel could be the romantic getaway you and your significant other have been waiting to experience.
