Hyatt is expanding its presence in New Orleans by opening 2 luxe hotels, which will join the JdV and Unbound Collection portfolios.

Here’s what you need to know.

Boutique Hyatt Hotels Coming to New Orleans

Here are a few details about both properties:

  • Maison Métier: Located in the Warehouse District, this 67-room hotel will join The Unbound Collection by Hyatt portfolio. Amenities include a salon-style bar, a rooftop pool, a fitness center, and meeting and event spaces.
  • The Barnett: Formerly the Ace Hotel New Orleans, this property will join the JdV by Hyatt portfolio. Amenities include 2 restaurants, a rooftop pool and bar, and a fitness center.

Both hotels are currently open and are accepting reservations. Rates at Maison Métier and The Barnett start at around $400 and $500 per night for dates this fall, respectively.

Hyatt says both properties highlight the Big Easy’s “vibrant culture.”

“Hyatt’s growth continues to be fueled by the leisure and lifestyle segment, and this brand expansion in the New Orleans market underscores Hyatt’s commitment to growing with intent in destinations that matter most to Hyatt guests and World of Hyatt members,” said Mike Waddell, senior vice president of global franchise operations, Hyatt.

Interestingly, there is conflicting information about whether the 2 properties will join the World of Hyatt loyalty program. Both websites say, “This resort is not part of the World of Hyatt loyalty program,” and neither has been assigned a hotel category.

However, Hyatt says both properties are “expected to participate” in the World of Hyatt loyalty program this year. We will update this story when we know more.

How To Book Hyatt Hotels in New Orleans

Hyatt has a pretty significant presence in the Big Easy, with brands ranging from the Unbound Collection to Hyatt Regency.

New Orleans is 1 of the best cities in the U.S. to spend Hyatt points due to the city’s higher-end offerings and relatively low redemption rates. The Eliza Jane, located just blocks from the French Quarter, is one such hotel.

As a Category 5 World of Hyatt property, award rates start at just 17,000 points per night (off-peak), up to 23,000 points per night for peak nights.

Hot Tip:

While earning World of Hyatt points isn’t the easiest, you can earn by opening a co-branded credit card or transferring points from Chase Ultimate Rewards or Bilt Rewards.

Final Thoughts

Hyatt is boosting its presence in New Orleans with 2 new hotels joining the JdV and Unbound Collection portfolios. Both offer high-end amenities but are boutique in design, which many hotels in the Big Easy tend to be. While you can book cash rates now, we’ll be sure to let you know when both hotels can be booked with points!
