“Mardi Gras 2007”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2007

We had a great time at JW Marriot. The room was large, very clean and with oh-so comfortable beds! The location was perfect - right on the parade route. The staff was friendly and effiecient despite it being the busiest week-end, and the concierge was one of the most helpful I have encountered. We had two small problems; 1) the safe was out of batteries upon arrival - they fixed it sithin 20 minutes, 2) the room service breakfast was very overpriced and of so-so quality. Aside from that, the stay was exceiptional and I'll definitely be back.

We spent 2 nites here in early February 2007. Very comfortable room, attentive staff, great location across Canal St. from the French Quarter, easy walk to FQ and casino. Our room had a great view of the Quarter. Didn't eat there, but looks like a nice Shula's steak place in the lobby. Mother's restaurant for downhome breakfast is 5 minute walk. Would certainly return here!

Excellent property, extremely friendly staff and maid service was top notch. Anything we needed or desired, the staff made sure they either found it for us or told us how to obtain it. Rooms were very clean and an overabundance of extras were available to us. Don't pass up eating at Don Shula's excellent food and very convenient.

This was our first visit back to this historic city since the devastating Katrina hit one of our favorite cities in the world. We had heard horror stories about the housekeeping and services in many establishments throughout New Orleans and experienced none of it during our 3-night stay at this property. Both public areas and guest rooms were spotlessly clean, staff was kind, courteous, and efficient, and the room was beautiful. Our only complaint was with the room's lighting. The recessed can light bulb in the entry hall had been replaced with a simple 60-watt light bulb and one of the nightstand lamps was missing an on/off switch. Those minor glitches aside, everything else was perfect. I would highly recommend a visit to New Orleans and a stay at the JW Marriott.

We have a corporate rate at the JW Marriott and I look forward to staying there again.
The bar is very cute and doesn't feel too much like a hotel bar.
The beds are comfortable and the rooms are nice.
Absolutely NO issues.
The gym is slightly larger than a normal Marriott gym (about 2 guest rooms large rather than 1)

  • Liked — Bar scene, great beds
  • Disliked — Could have a little more nola flair

I stayed at the JW Marriottt on Canal Street with my mom and sister in January.

The hotel is perfectly situated next to the French Quarter, so it was great to be able to simply walk everywhere without getting a cab. It is very clean, the staff was quite friendly and accomodating...for example, our checkout time was extended and we were given a place to store our bags prior to leaving for the airport.

The room decor is in New Orleans style with bright colors and the bathrooms have obviously been updated.

I would most definitely stay at this hotel again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2006

I spent six nights (Dec 9 through 14, 2006) at the JW Marriott in New Orleans. I was attending a weeklong training at the Marriot across the street, but chose the JW because it received a higher rating from tripadvisor. The other Marriot was nice, but was super busy with the training, and I am glad I selected the JW. It seemed a little fancier, though I am certainly not fancy myself! The room was lovely, the bed was heavenly and the staff was always available and helpful. The room was also very quiet. When I go to New Orleans again, I will likely stay at this hotel.
