PEARC17 attendees staying at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans will experience the best of the Big Easy. The hotel is located in the heart of downtown, next to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, Smoothie King Center and Champions Square. Nearby attractions include taking a ride on the Loyola Avenue Streetcar, which passes directly in front of the hotel, or a walk to the historic French Quarter, Arts District, Audubon Aquarium of the Americas, the National World War II Museum, and the scenic Mississippi Riverfront—all located within a mile of the hotel. Attendees will also savor some of the city’s best cuisine at the hotel’s restaurants and dining options: 8 Block Kitchen & Bar, Vitascope Hall, Q Smokery & Cafe, Pizza Consegna and Borgne by celebrity Chef John Besh.
To help plan your visit to the Big Easy, the PEARC17 web site has information about things to do and see in and around New Orleans, as well as additional informative links. See http:/
