I'm attending a work conference later this month in New Orleans. It will be held at the Sheraton in the French Quarter (500 Canal Street), which is offering discounted rates for the conference. However, the price is still a bit expensive. I would like to stay at the Hyatt Place (881 Convention Center Blvd).
I have done my research and the Hyatt Place has received good reviews. It is also on sale at a great price for my dates. Is the area safe? Is it a pleasant walk to the French Quarter?
Any input is welcomed. Thanks in advance.
