Hyatt Regency New Orleans COVID-19 Safety Protocols

Effective as of March 21st, due to the City of New Orleans updating the COVID-19 indoor gathering guidelines lifting the requirements on COVID-19 proof of vaccination or proof of a negative COVID test to enter certain establishments including event spaces, our Front Desk will no longer be asking to verify a guest’s vaccine status or negative test if the guest wants to utilize our Fitness Center during their stay with us. All of our restaurants and lounges will also no longer be verifying proof of vaccination or negative test when a guest enters any of our establishments.
