New Orleans has a rich, colorful and tragic past. After Hurricane Katrina devastated the city there were some who said they city will never been the same and others who said perhaps they shouldn’t rebuild.
Over the years, there has been a rebirth of epic proportions which we just had to witness and experience firsthand. An excellent example of the rebirth of this iconic city is the Hyatt New Orleans and their extended stay property Hyatt House. In fact, we were honored to attend the grand opening of the Hyatt House with a proud, gleaming Mayor Mitchell J. Landrieu. With an emotional toast of Champagne with rebuilt downtown as a back drop we celebrated the birth of yet another part of this very historic American city.
The Hyatt House feels like your own home, designed for one night stays to weeks and even months at a time. This brand new property is located in the downtown area surrounded by new and famous restaurants that feature fresh cuisine and cocktails any time of the day.
Why not start your day your with a made-to-order omelet from the complimentary Morning Spread. No matter what time of day you may need to satisfy your hunger, the 24-hour Guest Market serves fresh prepared salads, sandwiches and snacks. You can even make your own home cooked meal by taking advantage of the complimentary grocery shopping service and enjoy an evening at home.
For a hand crafted libation pull up a seat at the H Bar and lounge order some comfort food, a cocktail or a nice choice of premium wine and beer.
Take a walk in the New Orleans Warehouse District and dine one of the 8 restaurants headed up by French Chef Eric Damidot next-door at the Hyatt Regency, including 8 Block Kitchen & Bar.
