“Great location, great staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

I just came back from the JW Marriott: stayed from the 27June2014 to 4th July 2014 ,love my experience at the hotel. The staff are very nice polite from the reception, house keeping to the security guard, valet boy, any questions are suggestions from the City, they are so open mind to give you any needs you ask with a smile and a great sense of humour. Hotel is clean, even with The Essence 2014 Event, the hotel is remain pretty quiet. Great location for restaurant, casino, French quarter..My comfortable king bedroom on the 14th floor has a nice view on canal street!! The pool on the 8th floor is very appreciated after a long sticky day of walk. The gym room is well equipped! I will go back anytime! Only one thing internet is not available everywhere, my only disappointment ..but still can get free WiFi on "The marriott public " in the lobby.

Room Tip: Don't pay for internet 14$ per day, because you can go to the lobby for free: just connect on Ma...

Dear Darouny,

We deeply appreciate your feedback regarding your recent stay with us. It's fantastic to hear that you found our service warm and friendly. We absolutely recommend our 8th floor pool as a relaxing place to lounge after a long day of strolling the French Quarter. We are also happy that you enjoyed our complimentary wifi on the first floor, which is a great option for our guests. We hope to see you again in the near future.

Sincerely,

I had a wonderful time @ the JW Marriott the staff was so friendly and accommodating. Every request was met with a smile and the response is there anything else I can do. I know a standard line, but not with this staff, they wanted to help. I can't leave without mentioning our bellman Paul, what a wonderful representative of the JW Marriott, so kind and helpful always with a smile. Will be back again and again!!

The staff here was very helpful, friendly and polite and attended to any needs right away. The room was wonderful ~ all the amenities, thoughtfully planned out. A sink outside the bathroom, for example, was a great addition. The king bed was beyond comfortable...a real treat, after sightseeing all day!! The bar was a great place to watch the soccer games ~ (A tip: If you order room service, make sure to order the wings!!)
Overall, a delightful hotel in a great location.

This hotel is wonderful. The staff is friendly and accommodating. However, Kimberly at the
front desk is exceptional. This was our 40th wedding anniversary, and she went above and
beyond to make it special. She is a credit to your organization. She made this the best hotel
stay we have ever experienced.

Room Tip: Corner room had a great layout and good view.

Short walk to the madness on which we call Bourbon St. Upon walking in we were checked in rather quickly. The rooms were clean and spacious, the bar was nice and let us watch the hockey game on just about every tv there. Day before check out a nice hand written note thanking us for the stay was very nice of them. The only thing i say is upon walking into a hotel at night and security has to check your room key before entering elevators is because outside at night gets rather crazy. This is good thou and keeps you safe from the drunk walkers that leak over from the streets.

We stayed for two nights. The hotel was clean. All of the staff was helpful and very polite. Parking was a bit expensive at forty dollars a day. It was valet parking and they were just a pleasant as the hotel staff. Two blocks from bourbon st. Money well spent.

Dear Ayenna,

We love your photo of the view from the JW Marriott New Orleans! We're glad to hear you liked our convenient location. We hope you had the chance to try beignets at Cafe Du Monde, stroll Jackson Square, and ride the steamboats, which are quintessentials experiences for our visitors. We work hard to keep our valet rate as reasonable as possible and it is comparable to similar hotels in the area. It would be our pleasure to host you again.

Hotel room was nice, bathroom small. Great location not far from French quarter.
Pool -- too small with lots of people Turning away after seeing all the chairs were taken.
Fitness room - very nice ( stain around water cooler uggh)

Bar - lacks ambiance. On the dark side and small. Needs a few more flat screens and brighten it up.
