The Hyatt New Orleans, however, is more than just a renovation. "It's a transformation," said Michael Smith, general manager of the hotel. The hotel first opened in 1976 and welcomed guests for nearly 30 years, until it was forced to shut down in 2005 after Katrina. Today, as the hotel prepares to open its brand new doors, Smith said there's a lot of excitement buzzing around the building.
