"New Orleans has flourished over the past 10 years with current visitor numbers exceeding those before Hurricane Katrina," said Jane Tebbe Shute, general manager, Hyatt House New Orleans/Downtown. "In addition to the city's popularity in the tourism industry, New Orleans' advancing medical district is bringing exciting new developments to the local market. We are excited to introduce those visiting New Orleans to the unique guest experience offered by the Hyatt House brand."
An adaptive reuse of an existing 24-story office building, the 194-room hotel will occupy seven floors within the building and connect to the adjacent Hyatt Regency New Orleans through a second-floor sky bridge. The hotel's location at Poydras Street and Loyola Avenue provides ideal accessibility to the Central Business District, Arts, Sports & Entertainment Districts, and new BioDistrict, as well as popular attractions such as the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, French Quarter, and Mississippi Riverfront.

With 1,193 guestrooms, nine innovative culinary options, and 200,000 square feet of meeting space, Hyatt Regency New Orleans is one of the premier hotel destinations in the Crescent City.
