My sister and I stayed at this hotel for a girls trip and really loved it. We were on the 11th floor overlooking the pool and had a beautiful view of the French Quarter and some of the historical buildings. This is centrally located in the FQ so it's a quick walk to many of the restaurants and even over... More

nice location - situated near bourbon street on canal, it's convenient to all the restaurants, and tourist attractions. the rooms are smaller than most and a little noisy, but very clean. nice lobby for hanging out or for eating.

Really enjoyed 6 nights at the JW recently. Was in town for a big convention (not at the hotel), so everything was busy. Arrived at the hotel near 1am, but check in was easy and friendly. Didn't eat at the hotel, but tried one night to get into Shula's, as we had heard it was good. We had great meals... More

Beautiful lobby, friendly staff. Room was very lackluster. Air intake HVAC was constantly humming. Room wouldn't cool below 71. Housekeeping never cleaned my room- not sure how that happened. I was billed for 2 days of internet access, but didnt even bring my laptop. I wasn't impressed enough to return- definitely expected more.

Walking distance to French quarter, etc. Hotel was very clean and put together. My favorite part was the conciege lounge breakfast and appetizers- one of the best I've seen for Marriott. I would recommend.

Great location, close to wonderful restarants and the French Quarter, the staff was very friendly and accomodating. While the hotel does not have very much charm it was clean and the rooms were nice. I was surprised how quiet it was at night since it is located fairly close to Bourbon Street. As other travelers have noted it is mainly... More

My wife and I recently completed a brief stay (2 nights) at the JW Marriott, New Orleans. This was our first stay at the property, and given it was Mardi Gras, and the stay was short, I will limit the comments to a few takeaways. First, we stayed on the concierge level of the hotel. The concierge suite had good... More

Stayed during week between superbowl and mardi Gras and was amazed that the staff wasn't pulling out their hair! They were accomodating and polite and made up for room which was less than upscale. Unfortuantely the view was non existent as we were given a realtively low floor... not that important except we found out you could watch some of... More

Great staff, room was very good, but you can hear everything from the adjoining rooms. The pool area was fina, and they had a good workout area. Most of the people who were staying there, were for conventions. We were stying there on points, so it wasn't to much trouble. We didn't eat there, so I can't comment on that,... More
