About Hyatt Centric French Quarter spaces:
DESIGN BY STUDIO 11
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
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.
GUESTROOMS & SUITES
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.
FOOD & BEVERAGE EXPERIENCES
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 Holmes’ food menu features guest favorites such as gumbo
and BBQ shrimp, while the bar’s cocktail menu wows with its signature
drinks: the Dauphine Dream, 1849, and Empress 75.
MEETING & EVENTS
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 wood, and sleek armchairs to
modernize the community spaces.
