Hyatt Centric French Quarter New Orleans Debuts Extensive Renovation

Hyatt Centric French Quarter New Orleans announced the completion of an extensive interior renovation, including a redesign of the lobby, guestrooms, meeting spaces, fitness center and the hotel’s food and beverage spaces.

The 254-room hotel is located adjacent to Bourbon Street and within walking distance of New Orleans’ popular attractions including Jackson Square, the Saenger Theatre, Caesars Superdome and Smoothie King Center. Guests can expect 10,660 square feet of flexible function space, an outdoor courtyard with pool and poolside bar, and a 24-hour fitness center.

Originally built in the 1800s as the D.H. Holmes department store, Hyatt Centric French Quarter New Orleans’ design draws inspiration from the building’s history. Led by design firm Studio 11, the renovation added paneled high ceilings, warm metals and a moody color palette setting the stage for bold splashes of geometric patterns complemented by natural woods and brass detailing. Thoughtfully styled touches, such as framed photos of 1950s New Orleans storefronts, artwork of hand-painted brass masks and unique accessories pay homage to the hotel’s past and locale.

Inspired by 1950s European design and the city’s ambiance, the updated lobby area welcomes guests with tones of blue and burnt orange, colorful mosaic tiles and geometric wood paneling on the walls. Elaborate custom chandeliers and patterned floor rugs adorn the renovated space, adding depth and sophistication.

The hotel’s guestrooms and suites have contemporary furnishings and graphic carpet patterns. Teal, navy and burgundy color palettes in the furniture are styled with florals, brass bar carts and vibrant art pieces that celebrate the eccentric character of the city. Each of the hotel’s suites has custom curated décor, antiques and artwork, with themes drawn from the local area and the building’s department store history.

Hyatt Centric French Quarter New Orleans offers two F&B outlets in addition to special entry access for guests to neighboring restaurants, Red Fish Grill and Hard Rock Café. The hotel’s new signature dining concept, Holmes, serves local fare and crafted cocktails. Designed by Executive Chef Malia Hamilton, the menu includes guest favorites such as gumbo and BBQ shrimp, while the bar’s cocktail menu comprises signature drinks such as Dauphine Dream, 1849 and Empress 75.

The renovation brings a full transformation to the hotel’s 10,660 square feet of flexible meeting and event space. The interior décor is inspired by the region’s waterways, incorporating shades of blue and gold in geometric patterns. Contemporary pendants, textured wallpaper and graphic carpeting combine to create inviting spaces for groups to collaborate. The new esthetic continues into the outer corridors and breakout spaces with details such as striking blue and gold carpeting, dark woods and sleek armchairs to modernize the community spaces.
