New Orleans is a yearly trip for us and we have stayed at a few hotels in the area, but the JW has earned a repeat stay next year. First off the staff is absolutely amazing. All of them! From the valets to the bellman to their concierge staff. We usually sleep with a box fan and requested one upon arrival. Our bellman was unable to locate one and promptly informed us he would be going to purchase one. Since we had dinner reservations we left to eat and walk around. Arriving much later we saw he had delivered us a new fan, but not a box fan. We figured that was good enough....well later that night here comes the same bellman with a brand new box fan. How he remembered I will never know, but we were extremely thankful. I cannot remember his name, but if he is any indication of the service at the hotel they are in great shape! Second, the room is nice and spacious with ample drawers for a longer stay and their bath products are great too! Third the location is just unbeatable. Noise was never an issue at night. We were right near the st charles and canal trolley lines. 1 block from ACME, which is also a yearly visit. JW Marriott has made a repeat customer out of us and we cannot wait to come back next year!
