Although I have used Tripadvisor for years in selecting hotels and restaurants, this is the first time being motivated to post a review. My wife and I were looking to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary and chose New Orleans, a place we had never been to. We can't say enough positive about our experience at JW Marriott. The hotel was perfectly situated for us; on the edge of the French Quarter, walkable to all of it, but not in the middle of the craziness, and right on the street car lines. The service throughout the hotel was warm and welcoming and skillful, and the hotel is immaculate. Management, on learning we were celebrating our anniversary, went out of their way to make us feel special. We give this hotel our highest recommendation.
