Bottom Line

The 170-room Hyatt Place New Orleans/Convention Center is an upper-middle-range chain hotel located across the street from New Orleans’ main convention center. While those seeking a central location and historical experience will want to steer away from what is a fairly bland environment, the property is convenient for business travelers and tourists who don't mind a 20-minute commute to the French Quarter. Rooms are contemporary and attractive, if not quite memorable. The hotel has a sunlit cafe selling an assortment of light bites and beverages including cocktails and Starbucks coffee; it also offers an extensive hot breakfast that's included in the room rate. There's also a 24-hour fitness center and other conveniences like laundry facilities, meeting rooms, and a business center. Travelers seeking something similar, but with a more central French Quarter location, might want to consider the Hyatt French Quarter New Orleans instead.

Oyster Hotel Review

Hyatt Place New Orleans/Convention Center

Scene

Modern chain hotel with corporate ambiance, but comfort-oriented

Ideal for business guests because of its proximity to the convention center (which is just across the street), this modern hotel from the Hyatt chain is housed in a contemporary, eight-story stone building. The lobby is fairly bland and nondescript, though spacious and comfortable, with plenty of places to sit and lounge amongst a host of cushioned armchairs, sofas, and bench banquettes. Large windows fill the space with natural light and give a direct view onto the convention center across the street.

Location

Located across the street from the convention center and 20 minutes to the French Quarter

The hotel is located directly across from the main convention center in New Orleans, situated along the busy four-lane Convention Center Boulevard, which is lined with several other hotels and a few restaurants. The Riverwalk Mall with its shops and restaurants is a 10-minute walk away, and farther past that travelers will find Canal Street, also filled with shops. Bourbon Street and the French Quarter are about 20 to 30 minutes on foot or 20 minutes via a streetcar that stops right next to the convention center and runs along the river. The airport is also easily accessible via public transport, though it requires about a 10-minute walk to the nearest street car or bus stop (one hour 15 minutes total travel time).
