A standout on the downtown skyline, the Hyatt Regency New Orleans occupies a towering glass skyscraper opposite the Superdome. The vast, multi-height lobby makes a grand first impression, with an enormous curved staircase, an installation-like chandelier and internal glass elevators. The 1,193 guestrooms, by contrast, have a simple style, done up in chalk and beige shades, with chaise lounges, work stations and King or Queen beds dressed with crisp white linens. All have such mod cons as free WiFi, 42-inch flat-screen TVs, coffeemakers and bathrooms with shower/tub combinations and Hyatt brand toiletries. Rooms on higher floors have knockout views of the Crescent City and Champions Square. On the dining front, the five main restaurants cover the culinary spectrum from international favorites at the all-day 8 Block Kitchen & Bar to barbecue at Q Smokery & Café and Louisiana seafood at Borgne. There’s also pizza (for room delivery only) at Pizza Consegna, and the Bywater Pool Deck & Bar for cocktails and light bites beside the cabana-lined saltwater rooftop pool.
In the Area
New Orleans is the home of the cocktail, and every sip comes with a story. Start your boozy odyssey off with the classics and see where they take you. Napoleon House was once offered as a refuge to the exiled emperor and today it’s known for its Pimm’s Cup, an Anglophile fave that mixes a splash of lemonade with Pimm’s No. 1. After one of those, get dizzy on Vieux Carrés (rye, cognac, dry vermouth, benedictine and bitters) at Hotel Monteleone’s Carousel Bar & Lounge, a former haunt of Tennessee Williams, among other writers. For dinner pork out at Cochon, in the Warehouse District; start with the wood-fired oysters before diving into the signature Louisiana cochon, with turnips, cabbage, pickled peaches and cracklins. Uptown, try the legendary Patois, where chef Aaron Burgau serves haute classics like smoked rabbit and andouille gumbo. Back in the French Quarter, Coop’s Place cooks up the best pub grub in town, including fried crab claws and a scrumptious seafood gumbo. New Orleans’s musical roots run as deep as the Mississippi River is long, and the sounds of jazz, blues and brass bands fill the city’s streets year-round. Get two shows for the price of one when you head to Preservation Hall, where the buskers entertaining those waiting in line rival the legends performing inside.
How to Get There
For starters the hotel is beautiful. Giant hotel, with a great view of the Superdome and the smoothie king stadium. Beautiful spacious pool, and great food. Also, the place has a Starbucks inside, like what's not to love. On top of that, the customer service at the front desk was very helpful and constantly sought out for any help that you may have needed. Also at the, I went to go order a pizza to go at the restaurant (6 something, can't recall the name). The man was very patient because I am still young and struggle with organization, he was very patient and polite. If I am ever back in town I will be sure to definitely return!!!
I stayed for a week and it really felt like home away from home. The hotel staff was friendly and really accommodating to my needs. The location of the hotel was perfect. There were several nice eating places within walking distance.
Booked this hotel due to a conference being hosted onsite. Online check in and room assignment made the checkin process smooth. Just had to show ID at the front desk to get my key. Staff from top to bottom were all very pleasant, helpful and eager to help. Wasn’t expecting the buttonless elevators but very easy to get use to.
My room was right next to the elevators on the 12th floor, but I didn’t hear any noise even though there were two different conferences and a wedding going on. Checkout was a breeze and transport to the airport was simple (the taxi station was right outside and it was a buck or so cheaper than Uber).
It’s stationed right across from the Smoothie King Center(NBA Pelicans) and Mercedez Benz Dome(NFL Saints). We will definitely return for a game.
Oh, and don’t forget to leave a tip for your room attendant. They are the real heroes of our hotel stays😀
The place to be if your conference is there. But, If you’re there to experience Nola, there are so many other hotels that will better give you the city’s flavor. Le Pavilion a great choice for instance.
The Valet Parking backed up and broke the light atop the Pilgrim Rest Missionary’s Baptist Church Van. They put it back in where we would not see it broken it when we got on hwy we saw the light dangl.
