Stayed for 3 nights the weekend of 1/19/13. It was my first time to New Orleans. I was in town for a bachelor party so I didn't spend much time in the room. That being said, please don't let that deter you from continuing to read. Being in the hospitality business, it was a very enjoyable stay. I knew that Hyatt had recently taken over and it seemed as though they were still doing some very minor renovations to the property (I saw some painting of the doors in the lobby).
Rooms were very beautiful, a very modern look to them. I'm assuming for the most part things were updated quite a bit from perhaps a more historic feel from before. I had seen in a previous review about there not really being a desk or sufficient chairs. The room I stayed in had two beds and had a bench and small circular table. For the purposes of this trip, this really didn't concern me, but perhaps could be an issue for a family with two or more children. Our view was of the courtyard w/o the pool, so it was quiet.
Location was great, half a block from Bourbon Street. It was easy to walk to restaurants and bars. I even walked down to Harrah's Casino several blocks away with ease.
Staff was good. Housekeepers did a great job servicing the room. We weren't bothered super early to see if we wanted service. Front desk, check-in and check-out were good and efficient. Bellman and valet were very nice. If they weren't tended to other guests they would always open the door to enter or exit.
Overall, it was an enjoyable experience and I would definitely consider staying here again if I am ever back in the area.
