I recently stayed at the Hyatt located on Iberville in the French Quarter for the pre-Halloween festivities as I have been doing since 2009. The hotel and guest rooms have been nicely renovated and are very clean. The hotel is perfectly located just one block up from Bourbon Street and a few blocks to Jackson Square and the Superdome, if going to a Saint's football game. The restaurants and bar, Batch, are a little over priced, but so is everything in the French Quarter. There is an IHOP located on Canal Street, which you can get to by way of the hotel lobby which is pretty convenient when craving pancakes at 3 a.m. The rooms are very pricey, but for the location...you are going to pay for it. The only complaints I have is that the Hyatt charges you $40 a day for valet parking, which I feel that for the price of the room (over $1000 for 3 nights at the hotel, and that's for the cheapest room at the Hyatt and does not include valet) you should get valet for free or even at a discount. $40 is a significant increase to what I paid in years past for parking. I arrived at the hotel on a Friday around 2:30 p.m. and checked out on Monday at 6:30 a.m. and the total charge for my valet was $132.50. I guess the Hyatt needs to pay for the multi-million dollar renovation job they have done at the Hyatt French Quarter. A word of advice if staying at the Hyatt French Quarter....do not drive and valet your car there! Granted there are other lots available, but when driving from out-of-town and not familiar with where to park, finding parking on your own can be stressful, especially since there is a lot of road construction going on. Take plenty of snacks when staying at the Hyatt because they do not offer you any type of continental breakfast, snack, etc. and if you drink the bottle of water that's in your room they charge you $4 per bottle. Stayed at the Best Western Plus in Bessemer, Alabama on my way to New Orleans, and the rooms were just as nice as the Hyatt and cheaper, and they offered a continental breakfast so why is it that hotels like the Hyatt don't offer some sort of breakfast besides the one you can get in their restaurant. Oh well, there is a Walgreen's located across the street (on Canal Street) from the Hyatt where you can stock up on snacks and water at a much cheaper price. Even as a Hyatt Rewards Member I was not offered a free bottle of water or anything. Other hotels that I've stayed at, and am a rewards member of, at least offer you a bottle of water or two for free.
