“Great Location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This hotel was worth it - close distance to night life like Bourbon St. and mall. Very comfortable and spacious room. Food from the hotel restaurant was also good. Great romantic getaway for the weekend!

Stayed at both Marriotts as we cruised out of Nola. Came back to the JW for 2 nights and completely adored the staff. From the bell hop to the cleaning staff to the front desk...they made the difference. Very friendly in what was a taxing weekend! Rooms were lovely...The bar and restaurant were nicely done. Felt safe with security as the area was very chaotic. Would stay again in a heartbeat. The only complaint was that not all elevators were working and there was a line to get to your rooms. Great place just steps from all of the action!

My stay at the J W Marriott was wonderful. My trip to NOLA was for business/pleasure. The business facilities are top notch. The lunches and dinners were delicious! Rooms are clean and beds are comfy. The location of the this hotel is fantastic! Close to the French Quarter but within walking distance of the WWII museum, etc. The staff are the greatest. They actually act like they enjoy their jobs. They are friendly, courteous, helpful and will go out of their way to help you. I just can't say enough about how the staff here will take care of you. I have stayed at numerous places in and around New Orleans. But this has been my favorite visit. I am ready to go back!

Room Tip: Budget for valet parking....$40 per day. But that is the going rate in town.

Clean and efficient JWM in a great location for business or pleasure. Safely in the business district but just across Canal Street from the French Quarter and an "easy" walk to the Warehouse District and Convention Center, St Charles trolley car line, or into the French Quarter. Executive Lounge for Marriott Elite Members on the ground floor puts out a nice spread with tastes of local cuisine. Work out room is spacious and well appointed.

Room Tip: High up facing Canal would have the best views.

The JW Marriott was pleasant. We stayed the weekend of April 20th. The room was a corner king facing Canal Street. The room itself was spacious and had a great view.

There were a few things such as a broken elevator, ice machine was broken on our floor and the concierge lounge was closed for the weekend. Since we have Platinum status we were given F/B vouchers to use for breakfast in the hotel restaurant. This was actually awesome b/c the breakfast spread was so yummy!

Ordered late night room service and it was great as well.

Found this hotel on a last minute mystery priceline deal for $109 per night and was super excited when we found out what hotel it was!! Great location off canal street so you're just off the French Quarter. Little shops and coffee shops nearby and next to the tram lines to the garden district/magazine street. Only issue is we paid for Internet and it wasn't working - we called down to the front desk to complain and they apologized and removed the charge! Only valet available for parking ($40 per day) but we didn't have a car and you can walk everywhere. Overall great stay! The rooms are huge comfortable and clean.

We stayed at two Marriotts while in New Orleans this April. The JW Marriott was fancier than the New Orleans Marriott and the room was more spacious. However, there was elevator noise on the 30th floor at the JW Marriott and no room noise at the NO Marriott. I rate both hotels highly and both are conveniently located. I liked the room better at JW. Had we not been near the top of the elevator, I would have rated this a 5/5.

Room Tip: Stay away from the elevator, at least on the top floor.

Dear BillSweeney1,
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. Our rooms are more spacious than most the hotels in New Orleans and our location is perfect and convenient to all the tourist activities in the city. I appreciate the feedback about the elevator noise and will address it.
