About Hyatt Centric French Quarter spaces:



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 and storied past. Led by award-winning design firm Studio 11, the renovation shines a light on the city’s spirited culture and dramatic architecture, with paneled high ceilings, warm metals and a moody color palette set the stage for bold splashes of geometric patterns complemented by natural woods and intricate brass detailing. Layered with 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 rich ambiance, the updated lobby area welcomes guests with rich 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.


A reprieve from the hotel’s bustling public spaces, the spacious guestrooms and suites feature contemporary furnishings and graphic carpet patterns that speak to the modern explorer. 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 premium suites features 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 food & beverage 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, evokes a polished yet warm ambiance rooted in comfort. Holmes allows guests to indulge in delicious New Orleans fare and crafted cocktails. Designed by Executive Chef Malia Hamilton, the menu features guest favorites: gumbo, creole jambalaya, and BBQ shrimp and lead bartender Gierra Hankton wows with signature cocktails, the 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. Designed with a cool color palette, the interior décor is inspired by the region’s waterways, incorporating shades of blue and gold in bold, geometric patterns. Contemporary pendants, textured wallpaper and graphic carpeting combine to create inviting spaces for groups to collaborate. The new aesthetic 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.


Hyatt Centric French Quarter is located at 800 Iberville Street, New Orleans, Louisiana, 70112 and managed by HRI Lodging, LLC.
