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
Enjoyed my 4 nights here. The room is reasonably well decorated and maintained. Huge property but weird layout as it is confusing to get to your room. Good thing the reception was very friendly as most of the staffs are. Shower bath is moy user friendly as the shower is far from the shampoo. Not to mention the shower water is not very strong. So it’s a struggle to take your shower during winter
It was impossible to take a hot bath. The water was slightly warmer than tepid. Also the shampoo, etc. were set high up on the wall, so bathers have to stand up every time they need shampoo, conditioner, or body wash.
Very clean. Great atmosphere. Friendly Staff. Very close to the Superdome/Smoothy King Center. Me and my children love staying here. This wasn't our first time and it definitely won't be our last time!
