This hotel is in a great spot. It's right next to the House of Blues and is within 2 blocks of good night life. You can get river view rooms, and access to all the city is nearby as Subways are a block away.
The lobby is newer. The staff were friendly each time I was in and out. The only thing I was a little under-impressed about was the concierge lounge for Marriott rewards members. They have ok food, but it tastes like a Denny's in the morning and the hors d'oeuvres in the afternoon are clearly from frozen. I was also shocked to learn that only water, soda, and coffee are complimentary. I have stayed in Marriott hotels where they even give you beer and wine for free - but not here. Maybe it is a new policy...
