Hyatt Regency New Orleans set to reopen in 2011

The Hyatt Regency New Orleans, which became a familiar symbol on television of the city’s damage from Hurricane Katrina, will be renovated and reopened in the fall of 2011.

According to Hyatt, all 1,193 rooms will be renovated, along with 53 suites. A redesign calls for 200,000 square feet of meeting and exhibition space, two restaurants, two bars and a coffee bar.

The current hotel ownership group acquired the Hyatt from Chicago-based Strategic Hotels & Resorts Inc. after the 31-story building sustained heavy wind and water damage during Katrina in August 2005.
