“Beautiful property, good location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2010

We stayed at JW Marriott for 2 nights. The property is very nicely decorated with crystal chandelier in the front lobby. The hallway leading from Canal Street to the lobby via the bar and the sitting area is beautiful with lots of art work on the walls. The front desk staff was friendly and attentive.
The room was quite roomy and modern and the bed was VERY comfortable. There were complimentary water bottles and coffee maker, and you can get also the complimentary newspaper from the lobby.
The very good restaurant, the Palace Cafe, is on the over side of the street. We had a Sunday brinch there ans the food was delicious, - the best eggs benedict ever.

Only negatives: The hotel did not offer free internet access, and the breakfast was not included in the room price.

I travel frequently to New Orleans and find this hotel to be consistently excellent. The bell hops and front desk teams are appropriately polite and excude southern charm. I have seen them treat business travelers and tourists with children equally with respect. I find the roooms to be clean and represent the JW Marriott brand very well. As a returning guest, I am often greated with a "wecome back" note, handy concierge lounge schedule and my preferences honored. I find the quality of bed linens and bath toiletries inviting and the views of NOLA from the upper floors wonderful. This last visit, I was on the 27th floor with views of Canal Street and the French Quarter. The location is an easy walk to the Central Business District, French Quarter, French Market and Harrahs. While there are some great restaurants in walking distance, I have also enjoyed the room service menu. During this visit I sampled the Shrimp Po Boy and Chicken Tenders with the Pepper Jelly. My server was very personable and helpful; and my meals came piping hot and prepared as requested. This is the only hotel I would stay at in New Orleans.

Thoroughly enjoyed the stay - staff could not have been more hospitable. Was in New Orleans for a quick family get-away and this location was perfect. Easy walking distance to the Riverwalk, the Quarter, and Jackson Square ( I've reached the age where the frozen coffee at Cafe DuMonde is easier than a hurricane!). Realy liked that you drop the car at the rear of the hotel and a main entrance at the front puts you right onto Canal Street at a prime spot.

Really pleased with the room - very lush accomodations throughout the hotel. Bathroom is a little bit of a squeeze if you've got multiple toiletry kits but not a major impact. Outdoor pool on 8th floor is really nice as we were able to actually catch a breeze and escape the mugginess after a long day. The hotel was pretty full due to a Saints/Texans pre-season game but there were never crowds or problems getting where you needed to be - maybe that's why it's the Big Easy.

The parking is a little on the high side of price ($32/night), but it was worth it to not hassle with parking and to worry about your vehicle's safety. I also like the Country Inn and Suites down on Magazine, but the JW is a class above.

Nawlins is back, folks - go check it out and stay at the JDub.

Right by the french quarter and trolley lines to get you to the garden district. Seems to be surrounded by other hotels. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Beds very comfortable and nice view down canal street. Used the pool--pretty small but wasn't too busy when used. Seems furniture was new and nice. Would stay here again

The location of the hotel is great. It's a block and a half away from Bourbon Street. It's close enough but far enough away from the noise.

I was a little worried about the previous reviews regarding bed bugs, but thankfully no bed bugs during my stay. Our room was clean and plush. The only cons???? No free internet and no HBO on TV.

Traveled to the area with 3 of my girlfriends for the annual Essence Music Festival over the 4th of July weekend. The hotel was in a perfect location, close to everything....shopping and sightseeing within walking distance!
Hotel staff was professional, prompt and accomodating. Hotel was clean and comfortable. A little pricey, but that was due to the events/festival that was taking place that weekend. Hotel was the perfect location, but tucked away enough to avoid the rush of noise from the surrounding areas. Would stay here again and definitely recommend to other travelers.

I recently returned from a trip to New Orleans and stayed at this hotel. The hotel staff was phenomenal and the hotel itself is beautiful. I stayed on the 25th floor with a corner view and it was great! The hotel amenities are nice and I absolutely loved the fitness center and pool area. I will definitely be returning back to this hotel during my next visit to New Orleans!
