With 1,193 rooms, this upscale high-rise hotel feels a bit like a city unto itself. The setting is great for business travelers: 200,000 square feet of event space, a FedEx business center, and even a Starbucks. The Superdome is practically next door, and a streetcar stops out front, making it easy to access all of NOLA's events and attractions. Rooms are simply decorated with a contemporary, chain hotel style, along with high-quality Hyatt Grand Beds and 42-inch flat-screen TVs. Guests could spend much of their time on-site, considering the four restaurants, rooftop saltwater pool, 24-hour fitness center with city views, and free weekend jazz performances. There is no free in-room Wi-Fi.
