“Nice property and location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

The service was very good. My wife doesn't care too much for breakfast sandwiches, but I think they do a good job for them. The rooms are clean and the beds sleep well. You can usually get this hotel for a fair price and it is only a few minutes drive from the Superdome,the Aquarium, and the French Quarter. If you want to walk it, it's near the riverwalk and convention center. If you are going on a cruise out of the Port of New Orleans, it is right across the street. That's what we were here for this time. We have stayed here a few times and will again.

Always like a hotel with breakfast and they had excellent choices. Egg muffins especially were good, pancakes, and the usual fair.
Enjoyed the couch that was in our double room, and we had an excellent view to watch the cruise ship sail!
Tip to get around: walk over behind the convention center and take the Riverfront cable car to the French Market and Jackson Square. Make sure to shop for masks, beads, etc. in the French Market...much better prices than French Quarter itself!
No pool, and we found a hairbrush when we moved the sofa!

I can't see another reason for choosing this hotel other than the price.

However, as a tourist, it was a lousy choice. I didn't realize that there wasn't a pool (my bad). The public transportation (Red Line Streetcar) ran infrequently and only to the French Quarter (again my bad).

On the upside, the continental breakfast, room comfort, cleanliness, service, and overall quality of the hotel were worth the price.

Room Tip: Rooms facing Convention Center Blvd. were noisier. We paid extra for a larger room and felt it was w...

We stayed her for four nights during the Essence Music Festival. The hotel is right across the street from the convention center.
THe staff was super nice and gracious. With 4 women we were in constant need of towels and wash cloths and our room was a mess. LOL but they were able to keep it together. Also, this weekend is crazy every year and they did a really good job. We had no complaints at all.

The free breakfast is a major plus. The choices are good and it saves lots of time and money.

We walked every where. If you are in fairly decent shape you can walk to the French Quarter, Canal Street shops, the Casino and even the Dome. We caught a cab to the Dome back walked back every night after the concerts.

I would definitely stay there again.

Just read the previous reviews and as a very frequent visitor to the Crescent City, I say the location is perfect for families. It may not be what the "party-goers" are looking for, but as far as family and kid-friendly activities you can't beat this spot. It's directly across the street from the Convention Center and short walk to Riverwalk, Aquarium, IMAX, Children's Museum, several great restaurants and Harrah's. We paid $140 per night base rate for a suite with 2 queens and a pull out. Included full breakfast. Only downside is parking. Valet is $33 per day or self park $25 per day.

This years Essence was amazing. The hotel was great. The hotel was packed and always busy but the staff was so nice and accommodating. It is right across the street from the convention center which made it convenient for us during the day to see the venders and take part in the seminars. Breakfast was very good. And, there was food available 24 hours a day. Plus, they had these awesome chocolate chip cookies! !

This hotel was what you would expect from a Hyatt Place. I liked that we were able to check in early without difficulty. The room was nice, but the tub was a bit dirty at check in. Free wifi was a plus. It's a little far from everything so unless you will be spending a lot of time at the convention center I would probably stay closer to the action. We stayed on the 8th floor so the noise some people mentioned in other reviews was not an issue. My room was across the hall from the ice machine and there was a bad smell in the hallway. Parking was difficult. The hotel was busy from the Essence Festival and even after waiting an extended amount of time the parking attendants never got our car. I think I will go back to the Westin next time.
