Hyatt French Quarter New Orleans Reviews
Located in the Heart of the French Quarter Jun 23, 2013
I booked the Hyatt French Quarter Hotel from the Expedia app on my phone, as we were driving south to New Orleans. We chose it as a result of the lcoation, right in the heart of the French Quarter. It is located on Iberville Street, near Bourbon Street. Being completely unfamiliar with New Orleans, we had to GPS the address, and even with that is was a little tricky to find. The entrance is on the corner, with one of the streets being a one-way. Plus, we arrived nearly at 11 PM, on a Sunday night during a holiday week; the streets were crowded with pedestrians.
Once we were at the hotel, I went inside to get checked in. I was greeted by a super-friendly staffmember. It was a speedy check-in. I was a little leery, considering I had booked on a phone app, but no problems whatsoever. In addition to the $110 rate, the valet parking fee ($36 for overnight) had to be paid for at this time, too.
When I got back out to the car, the parking attendant was MIA, so my sister and I got a luggage cart, and loaded it up ourselves. She was going to stay with the car until someone came, but the valet appeared. Also MIA was a luggage porter, so we took it upon ourselves to take in the luggage cart, which we are perfectly capable in doing so. But, once we got inside, a porter appeared, and took the cart the rest of the way to our room.
The room was a nice size, but with the three of us, and all our luggage, there wasn't much room to space. There were two queen-size beds, one of which I had to share qith my sister. The bed was okay, not overly comfortable, but not bad. Our room overlooked the hotel's courtyard. Upon exploring the hotel, we also found the pool. It was open, but we thought it'd be too chilly. Despite being New Orleans, it was December, and the temperature was only in the upper 60s.
We also checked out the Powdered Sugar Cafe in the lobby area of the hotel, which offered a la carte bakery and pastry items, but passed on these. $12 for a croissant was a little much.
Overall, the Hyatt French Quarter wasn't bad at all, and I will keep it in mind if I return to NOLA. (I have no pictures because my camera was lost during this trip.)
