This hotel is next to the Superdome. I have been hearing the sound check going on for a Saints game since 0800. If you're wanting to sleep or work on business check the event schedules. The walls are thin too, we could hear the neighbor's TV. There are several bars and restaurants which are a plus. Overall I wouldn't want to stay here again with the noise level.
Short walk to venues at Smoothie King Center and Superdome. About a mile walk to French Quarter. Attractive,clean and comfortable room with frig, coffee pot, and HD TV. Also wifi and plenty of places to eat inside the complex.
"elegant setting for a conference"
I loved this hotel for a conference. The lobby is elegant and the decor upscale. They had nice conference rooms and my room was nice enough. My room faced the atrium so I could hear the live music from the bar (it was great local jazz but I would have preferred to have a quiet room...fortunately they shut down by 10). One thing to consider...the elevators here are unusual. You swipe your key...no buttons to push. I (and others) found it difficult to figure out if the elevator that had opened was the one I was supposed to be taking. I was in the hotel for 5 days and still didn't completely understand the elevators by the time I left. This was a consensus among conference attendees--lots of head shaking and shoulder shrugging. The hotel stations employees by the elevators at key times but the instructions were difficult to find and understand. As an aside, I am in my mid forties with a professional degree and generally do not have issues with "new fangled" devices. Hotel is next to the stadium. French Quarter is close enough (about 20 minutes walk) but be sure to take a cab home at night.
Quick visit to the bar at the Hyatt was an awful experience. The hotel was super busy and hundreds of people flocked a centrally-located bar in the hotel, only to be greeted by 2 slow bartenders. One would think management would react a bit more proactively whenever a crowd of this magnitude is frequenting your establishment. The experience was so frustrating I probably won't be back.
Traveled to New Orleans for work for a few days. My room was on the 10th floor, city view. It's a very large hotel as the 10th floor is one of the lower floors, but acoustically it's a pleasure since the rooms, walls, and doors, must be very thick/well insulated as I rarely heard a thing going on outside when I was inside. It's very convenient to the trolley line, which had just changed some routes the day before arrival in early October. Not a far ride from the airport either. Only about 20 minutes. Very close to the Superdome and the Pelicans arena. Hotel was very clean. Bed was very comfortable, sheets seemed new, pillows were great, and I routinely struggle away from the tried and true home pillows. Bathroom was very clean. Elevators were more modern with the auto-programming. I personally love the newer systems where you don't stop at every floor. It was funny watching some people who have never experience it not understand you can't just get on any elevator. Kudos to hotel for having a staff member stand right there assisting. Restaurants/bar areas were very comfortable. Breakfast buffet was great! Conference main area was nice. The vendor showcase was a little stretched out and confusing, but that could have been more the space constraints and logistics with the conference. Wifi worked well. Maintenance personnel was very responsive. When I arrived, day 1, my room A/C wasn't working and he fixed the thermostat locking up issue right away. Thanks for a great stay Hyatt Regency New Orleans. Definitely consider you if I'm ever back in town.
