The Hyatt Regency in New Orleans is a great Hotel. It is not located right in the French Quarter, it is closer to the stadiums, however you can walk to the FQ in a matter of minutes.
The hotel is huge and can be very confusing, so make sure to listen to the front desk staff at check-in when they explain how to get to your room. The lines seem long all the time at the Front Desk, however the staff extremely friendly.
Once grabbing your keys, you proceed across the lobby and up a set of escalators, where the conference/event rooms are located, and then up another set of escalators to the main dining areas and bar areas, you have to walk through a crowded bar area which is a huge hassle. This hotel always has large conferences going on and the bar can barely be walked through with your suitcases.
The elevators do not have buttons, you have to choose your floor before boarding the elevator and the screen will assign you a lift, this can be confusing. Once up to your floor, the rooms are nice, however if you are in the main middle part of the floor, you will here the noise of the convention activities in the bar below until late night, so I would ask for a room at the end of the hall.
When entering the room, you will be pleasantly surprised, there is an abundance of window and amenities and an extremely comfortable bed.
I would stay at this hotel anytime I was in New Orleans!
