The Jung Hotel
The Jung Hotel, pictured above in 1939, first opened its doors in 1907 as the Hotel New
.  In 1920's, it became the Jung.  Another section was added at that time and, then,  
in the 1960's, still another.  At one time, it was labeled as the
largest convention hotel in the
South.  It was called the Jung for more than 75 years
and, afterward, it was known as the
Clarion, Raddison and Park Plaza.  It was heavily
damaged in the levee failures of 2005 and
remained closed for a long while.  However, it was renovated and it's once again open as
the Jung Hotel, a luxury hotel, offering both rooms and residences.
