This large scale New Orleans hotel with strategic location and multitude of dining options is perfect for the business traveller.
ABOUT & THE ROOM
With a strategic location, next to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, Smoothie King Center and Champions Square, this 1,193 room 95-suite hotel is popular with those who want to be close to these popular attractions. My Premium view room overlooking crescent city is comfortable, with a gold and ivory colour palette, and the irresistibly comfortable Hyatt Grand Bed.
With eight restaurants, choose from gourmet, hand-tossed, Neapolitan-style pizza, barbeque, and James Beard-nominated Louisiana seafood with Spanish influence at Borgne. Sushi at Vitascope Hall is top notch, the stuff late night dining was made for – try the Saint, a hefty portion of soft shell crab, shrimp tempura, and spicy crawfish topped with masago, sesame seeds, and served with ponzu, sriracha, and eel sauce.
