The hotel is close to the convention center, mall and the center of New Orleans entertainment, Bourbon St. The place is not really family friendly, but rather for businessmen. It has a new modern look and the rooms are quite nice.

Beautiful hotel, great location, nice sized room....but expensive parking (park two blocks up beside Cleo's), they charge for wifi, and the wifi in the lobby that is "free" didn't work. He pool is wonderful and quaint....on the 3rd floor. There was construction on neighboring buildings which made mornings difficult. Also, there is a super tiny mini fridge and NO MICROWAVE....which... More

Dear ZaBinty, We're delighted that you loved our beautiful property! The Pere Marquette has an incredible history which includes being one of the first tall buildings in New Orleans. We are sorry to hear that your stay was not flawless, especially with your wifi connection, some noise and that you were not helped to heat your food in the room.... More

We visited New Orleans with friends who set us up in a suite overlooking the french quarter. The first thing I noticed was that there was not one staff member who was not friendly and helpful. The bellhop dealt with our 6 kids so well-and that's really saying something!! The room service guy told us some fun things to do... More

We booked this property for the 2014 Essence Festival (July 4th weekend) and wasn't sure about the location. Let me just say that we were not disappointed with our selection. The check-in went smoothly without a hitch. Darlene Narcisse was the BEST!!! Ms. Narcisse checked us in with such efficiency. Our luggage was handled by 2 bell personnel (female &... More

I stayed at this hotel on a regular basis while in New Orleans on business. The entire staff was extremely friendly and helpful, always going out of their way to accommodate me. The rooms were plenty large and always clean. Although the Renaisance did not have a concierge lounge, they did offer free breakfast and appetizers (which could be a... More

Stayed at the hotel Fourth of July weekend during Essence Festival. Hotel was very clean. Check in was a breeze and the staff was extremely friendly. Considering the number of guests at the hotel, the services did not suffer at all. Matter of fact, the staff seemed used to the crowd. The parking was extremely high at $38 dollars but... More

Within a comfortable walk to the French Quarter, the Renaissance New Orleans hotel fit the bill. The accommodations were comfortable, yet elegantly refined. Being a historic hotel, it has been renovated nicely to make for a great experience. Bed was firm, linens were neat, and the room smelled fresh. I stayed in a room with a handicap-access shower, which presented... More

Hotel was clean, pleasant, perfect location, very friendly and helpful staff that recommended great places to eat. We had a corner room with a wonderful view! Pool was not very big and the one day we went, since it was surrounded by buildings it was all shade. Also there was construction across the street which really was not a bother... More

The hotel is fine, its a bit older and a bit less kept but thats New Orleans overall. The lounge is non-existent (its a closet next to the bar on the first floor) and the rooms are tiny but the location is good. What really upset me was the Marriott corporate situation.
