The ONLY reason this place does not get a 5 from me is that the location is a little further away from the main strip hotels (on Canal)...which if you are attending for a conference, is likely where you need to be. It was at least a 15 minute walk to the French Quarter and the location of the particular conference I attended. However, this hotel was far superior in quality to what my conference options were. Frankly, since it is new (or newer), then it is heads and shoulders above some of the outdated/musty options on Canal street. My fellow conference attendees had plenty of complaints about the places they were staying; I was pleased with the Hyatt. It is sleek and classy, and does not have the New O funk that plagues some of the older places. The fact that the Loyola streetcar has a stop directly in front of the hotel is a huge plus. I did not have the opportunity to eat/drink at the hotel due to time constraints, but I'll say that the main bar and the onsite restaurants seemed to always have patrons. Upon arrival on Saturday night, the main bar area had live jazz and it looked to be a happening spot for the night. I also did not get a chance to check out the pool or gym, but good to know that those facilities exist. The only thing that sorta became a pain was having to have the key card anytime you wanted to use the hotel elevator, but I can appreciate that this is supposed to be a security feature as opposed to a nuisance. Finally, one small complaint, the pressure in the shower wasn't very strong, but that seems to be a common problem in large hotels, especially when you are 27 floors up....so trying to wash the shampoo out took 3x longer than it should have. One feature that does deserve two thumbs up, they have a small, moveable magnifying mirror...Most EXCELLENT for wanting to apply your makeup. Was also useful when my daughter wanted to use the mirror to do her makeup outside the bathroom so we were not having to fight for mirror space at the same time.
