Hyatt Regency New Orleans sets October target for re-opening

Almost six years since the devastating floods, the Hyatt Regency New Orleans is now accepting reservations to welcome its first guests on 19 October 2011.  This follows a US$275m redesign and what it calls “a revitalization”.  Upon completion, the hotel will boast 1,193 all-new, sophisticated guest rooms, 200,000sq ft of state-of-the-art, flexible event space, plus expansive food and beverage offerings. 

As one of the most significant hospitality developments in New Orleans in over a decade, the newly restored Hyatt Regency New Orleans will re-open as the city’s premier meeting and convention hotel.  Having doubled its meeting and exhibition space, the 32-storey hotel will offer the most meeting space of any hotel in the city, as well as the unique ability to self-contain group events of all sizes.  This includes two 25,000sq ft ballrooms, 64 versatile meeting and banquet rooms, 21 executive level meeting rooms, seven permanent boardrooms, and more than 80,000sq ft of exhibition space, highlighted by a new 50,000sq ft exhibit hall.

The hotel is located adjacent to the Louisiana Superdome, New Orleans Arena and the new Medical District; and just blocks from the French Quarter, Morial Convention Centre and Mississippi Riverfront.
