The Hyatt Regency New Orleans offers it’s guests a bit of sanctuary in the Big Easy. This AAA four diamond property is centrally located in the heart of this exciting city in fact the Loyola streetcar route running right in front of the hotel.
When you think of New Orleans, you think Jazz. The Hyatt offers free live Jazz on Friday and Saturday nights from 7pm to 10pm at the 8 Block Bar, no reservations needed. Featuring local musicians, you’ll appreciate this great way to take in the music that made this city famous without having to leave the comfort of the Hyatt.

In a dynamic food city like New Orleans, you have to provide first class food to get the attention and the Hyatt has hit a home run here. I had the opportunity to sample some outstanding sushi and sashimi from Vitascope Hall, pizza from Pizza Consequena and some traditional “bar bites” too. The Hyatt’s focus on fresh, local ingredients results in a restaurant filled with guests and locals. James Beard award-winning New Orleans chef John Besh heads Borgne with a menu emphasizing fresh coastal Louisiana cuisine, and local ingredients to create an outstanding dining experience. There is a restaurant for every taste here.

For their guests, the Hyatt Regency has a rooftop, heated saltwater pool with a full bar of course, (this is New Orleans after all). And likely the best views of the city as you exercise can be found through the wall of windows at their health club.
The beautiful lobby and soaring architecture are one of the many standouts of this beautiful property that just invite you in to stay and explore.
Both the guest rooms and suites are spacious and tastefully decorated, with just enough fine touches, and yet not too busy.
I personally love the interior of this building, it’s big and still not imposing or cold, well done.
