Stayed at the Hyatt Place Convention Center New Orleans prior to a Caribbean cruise. The hotel is very conveniently located near the cruise terminals, less than two blocks away and also within walking distance (5-15 minutes) of Jackson Square, the French Quarter, the WWII museum, Mardi Gras World, and the St. Charles street car line. The property is a standard Hyatt Place with nicely decorated rooms, a good breakfast buffet, and free wi-fi.
I'd have given it an Excellent rating except for two things. First, the rooms on the main street are a little noisy as it is on a busy road with lots of late night traffic and revelers. If possible, ask for a room on the sides or rear of the property. Second, we had some difficulty getting accurate information about accessing the cruise terminal (we wanted to walk) and ended up with three different answers. Eventually, we ended up taking a cab ride when we could have walked there in five minutes. To their credit, the property GM apologized, gave a reasonable explanation for the incorrect information we received, and offered appropriate compensation which was appreciated. Overall, I'd certainly stay there again but I'd ask for a side or rear room and I'd make sure to verify what the front desk staff tells me.
