“Awesome location!”

First time to New Orleans for a weekend trip. Hotel was very nice and comfortable. You can walk to anywhere in the French quarter. Hotel staff were exceptional friendly. Highly recommend this hotel for New Orleans stay!

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.

The rooms are small, but they are at many hotels in this city. But, the rooms are very nice and the service is very accommodating. Requests are promptly fulfilled with a smile and a thank you. We had a car and the valet service was excellent. We were in and out several times a day with no complaints.

The service of the hotel is awesome. They were there for you and very friendly. The bar is very good especially when you are waiting for your group to get into town. Just have to cross Canal to get to the French Quarter. I will definitely stay here again on my next trip to New Orleans.

Gracious hospitality awaits as you enter the modern lobby in the heart of the city. Try their fruit-infused water... it's addictive! The staff was extremely helpful and the concierge provided great suggestions on local restaurants.The rooms were quiet and comfortable, yet only one of my colleagues had turndown service. OK, I admit it, we were jealous!

My third stay at this hotel, conveniently located on Canal near the French Quarter. Efficient and friendly staff and comfortable marriott beds. Updated and modern rooms. Reliable and quiet, given its proximity to the night life.
