Eliza Jane

New Orleans, LA

Interior Design

The Eliza Jane, part of Hyatt’s The Unbound Collection, is a 196-room hotel on Magazine Street in the Central Business District  of New Orleans, just outside the city’s French Quarter.  The hotel is built within seven historic warehouses that stand distinct on the outside but have been internally conjoined to create the luxury accommodations with a 2000 square-foot open-air interior courtyard. Inspired by the beauty of each historic building, the design team intended to reference each of its original occupants: The Daily Picayune newspaper, as well as Gulf Baking Soda company, Peters Cartridge shop, and Peychaud Bitters factory. Additional research revealed one standout tenant, Eliza Jane, publisher of The Daily Picayune.The first female newspaper publisher in the country and a larger than life New Orleans figure, she has evolved into the namesake and persona of the hotel.
