What a nice place. From the self check-in to all the interactions we had with the concierge and other hotel staff, staying at the Hyatt Regency was a great experience. The outdoor pool was quite large and appealing at a distance from our room. We did spend some time poolside, too.
The fitness center offered a fantastic view of NOLA, and offered many machines (especially treadmills). It was well kept, and was on the same floor as the exclusive restaurant with an equally amazing view (we aren't club members so we didn't get to go inside, but that's alright...still plenty to see and enjoy).
A few guests had trouble with the elevators that took you on a custom trip to your floor...which seemed a little sad since those guests were also wearing badges that identified them as being a part of an educationally based conference hosted at the hotel...but that's okay. :)
It's also in a great location - $33 to the airport, $8 plus tip to the French Quarter, and really the French Quarter is a mile away so it's a reasonable walking distance.
Stay here, eat at Borgne, enjoy 8 Block, Starbucks and work out with a great view!More
