NEW ORLEANS—HRI Lodging announces the appointment of Michael Klein as General Manager at The Eliza Jane, a luxury boutique hotel in the Unbound Collection by Hyatt.
With a storied past as a printing house and bitters factory, The Eliza Jane is a reimagined historic hotel that doubles as an architectural and economic heirloom for the city of New Orleans. With over 20 years of hospitality leadership experience, Klein will oversee the property’s 196 guestrooms including 50 suites, two food & beverage outlets, fitness center, lush garden courtyard, and more than 1,700-square-feet of multi-purpose event space.
Most recently, Klein served as the Director of Operations at an additional HRI Lodging property, Holston House Nashville. During his time overseeing the hotel’s 191-rooms and food & beverage operations, Klein successfully achieved increases in services and profitability before navigating the property through the pandemic and subsequent bounce back in leisure business. Prior to his role at Holston House, Klein was the opening Director of Food & Beverage at the JW Marriott Nashville, and he’s held additional leadership roles in cities such as Austin and San Antonio.
Klein holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from American University’s School of Public Affairs. After graduation, Klein continued his education by achieving a Master of Management in Hospitality from Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration. The Eliza Jane is located at 315 Magazine St, New Orleans, LA 70130 and managed by HRI Lodging, LLC.
