The Hyatt French Quarter is located on Bourbon Street a block from Canal Street, in the former D.H. Holmes department store. You are close to all the tourist sites in the French Quarter like Jackson Square, Café du Monde, and of course, Bourbon Street.
The lobby is modern and stylish with the heavy scent of magnolia permeating the reception area. Check in was a breeze with the friendly and professionally trained front desk receptionist. She explained all of the features of the hotel, honored my request for a King Courtyard room with direct access to the pool, and handed me my card keys in less than five minutes!
The room was very spacious, airy, and open—with 12-foot ceilings, beautiful art work, and dark plum walls. In addition to the comfortable king-size bed, there was a plush, deep purple sofa with a round table that was perfect for unwinding after a long day of exploring the French Quarter. The bathroom was a palette of white subway tiles, marble-covered counters, and plum walls. The walk-in shower had plenty of water pressure and was stocked with Kenet MD bath products. A connecting door near the bed opened up to the relaxing and well-maintained pool. There were plenty of lounge chairs and an uncluttered poolside bar that served delicious beverages.
The hotel features a quick-service restaurant in the lobby called Powered Sugar, where we dined on the breakfast buffet (available on the weekend) that serves fluffy scrambled eggs, crisp bacon, sausage, grits, potatoes, fresh fruit, and pastries. We also had dinner at the Red Fish Grill, connected to the hotel through the lobby, and were impressed with the service and food; be sure to try the BBQ oysters.
Our room was very well kept and the maid service was exceptional. The only issue we had during our stay was the Roomlinx interactive television did not work correctly. I tweeted @HyattConcierge about the problems with the interactive television and was told a hotel representative would be contacting me; that never happened.
I would definitely recommend staying at the Hyatt French Quarter if you want a modern hotel, excellent customer service, and convenient location.
