Built within nine historic warehouses, The Eliza Jane joins The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand. The hotel is named after Eliza Jane Nicholson, the first woman publisher of a major metropolitan newspaper in the US. The hotel’s design showcases this rich history, giving guests and locals alike a glimpse into centuries-old stories and a feel of old New Orleans charm.
“Our goal with The Eliza Jane was to embrace the history and location of these distinct buildings to create a special experience for our guests,” said Jim Merkel, CEO, Rockbridge.
The hotel’s accommodations and amenities comprise 196 guestrooms with 50 suites, including 12 signature suites, a fitness centre, garden courtyard and food and beverage offerings by Makeready, which will feature a locally inspired restaurant and a lobby bar. The Eliza Jane will also feature 160 m2 of multi-purpose event space, suitable for hosting meetings and celebrations, as well as an al fresco patio adjacent to the restaurant.
