We stayed for three nights at this hotel from April 14 to 17, 2013 (last day of the French Quarter Music Festival).
Overall, we were very impressed by this, what felt like, newly renovated hotel. The Hyatt French Quarter is at the centre of it all (Canal and Iberville), but offers a quiet and comfortable retreat from the stir that is the French Quarter (notably Bourbon street). Our rooms felt brand new, very clean and well appointed. The hotel has a great bistro inside, offering local foods and a great variety of well made healthy choices. There are also many other restaurant choices attached to the hotel and thousands in the area. We used the gym on all days, in the morning, and we found it more than adequate for our needs. The large square pool is located in sizeable courtyard. There were more than enough lounge chairs and the bar was a great plus, but it was only staffed on Sunday (our first day there). The staff at the Hyatt was very welcoming and generally went above and beyond to make you feel at home. This must be the southern hospitality because this was reflected everywhere we went on our trip in NOLA.
As stated, the major positives were location, renovated building and friendly staff. We agreed that there were little to no negatives about this hotel. It certainly helps that we received an incredible price with the help of Priceline, but would have had no problem paying full asking price for what we received. This hotel easily receives a 4 star (out of 5) for what has already been mentioned. We definitely recommend this location.
