Not to be confused with the more prominent New Orleans Marriott across the street, the JW Marriott is located on the south side of Canal Street with parking entrance on Common Street. The JW Marriott is a nice, full-service property conveniently located to the French Quarter. Parking is by valet only and the retrieval was quick for us. Check-in went smoothly and we used bell service for check in and check out. The bellmen in both instances were very courteous and helpful. Our room was comfortable, but I was disappointed to find bits of debris still on the floor in the bathroom. The bathroom was cramped but the shower and tub were full-size and nice. We were on the 30th floor with a nice view facing the water and Quarter. This hotel close to streetcar stops, and you can do so much in the area without ever using your car. Jazzy Day Passes are available for $3.00 and make hop-on, hop-off easy. Since this was our first visit to New Orleans, we did the touristy things and walked around the French Quarter, visited Jackson Square and took in the sights. This JW Marriott was a great base for our sightseeing adventure.
