Like some of the other reviewers, I stayed at the Hyatt New Orleans in the run up to and during the Superbowl. On the positive side, the staff coped well with the enormous influx of guests and visitors. The welcome at reception was warm and professional. The serving staff also did a great job keeping pace with the demands of a tremendous number of customers. The breakfast was certainly one up from the normal mass produced chain hotel food. The rooms are well equipped and relatively spacious. The location, on the edge of the Central Business District but right next to a busy road, is OK. At least it's a reasonable distance from the madness of the French Quarter. Now to the downsides. The layout is strange and the hotel is certainly not somewhere for sufferers of vertigo to stay. The view are not spectacular. Indeed, they are pretty uninspiring. Finally, for a hotel chain that sells itself as business friendly, Hyatt needs to get its act together. The charges for computer and internet access were completely over the top. It really cannot be taken seriously with such poor business facilities. These should be treated as a way of helping rather than fleecing guests. That said this hotel is a credible option for New Orleans.
