Hyatt Regency New Orleans to Open for First Time Since Hurricane Katrina

Hyatt Regency New Orleans after KatrinaThe Hyatt Regency New Orleans, which was ravaged by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, is set to re-open for the first time since the storm on September 19 of this year.


The battered hotel quickly became a symbol of the widespread damage caused by the storm in the days following its landfall.


The downtown hotel’s re-opening will come at the end of a $275 million overhaul that will leave it with 1,193 guestrooms, 200,000 square feet of meeting space, and a 300-seat specialty restaurant.


The re-opening will mark a symbolic moment in New Orleans’ continuing road to recovery.
