This is a very nice place that is incredibly convenient to the Convention Center. You could just about trip off the curb and find yourself on Convention Center property.
The Hotel does not have some of the amenities normally associated with a Hyatt, but that is easily forgiven in favor of this terrific location. Breakfast was free, and better pretty much what you would expect for that type of situation -- okay but not great.
The entire staff was very very accomodating, and seemed prepared to do whatever they could to make your stay pleasant. There is a small bar and a small Business Center to allow you to check Email and do other assorted things.
My big complaint, and only room location can correct, is the fact that the Convention Center Blvd. is a very busy street even in the early hours of the morning. Trucks, loud cars, motorcycles - you name it!!! Getting a really good nights sleep is somewhat of a challenge. Yes, New Orleans is a "party town" but some of us do have to go to work in the morning.
