“Excellent hotel!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

My husband and I love this hotel! The rooms are lovely - modern, but still retaining some of the original features of the building, with lovely decor. The bathrooms are fantastic - again, with all mod cons but renovated in a style that is sympathetic to the building and New Orleans. The location is great - only two blocks to Bourbon St and Canal St, fair enough away for it to be quiet but easy to stumble back to!

There is quite a popular bar/lounge area downstairs that had live music and great cocktails, but it was a bit noisy. We were on the 7th floor and did not hear anything, but if you were closer down this might be a problem.

The breakfast was nice but stick to the a la carte as the buffet was a bit stale both times we ate there.

Only downside was the staff were not as friendly as they could have been - was looking forward to some real Southern hospitality but felt like they were just going through the motions. Helpful enough but did not blow me away!

Tip - there are no guest laundry facilities at this hotel, but if you take your room key to the JW Marriott two blocks away, they will let you use their guest laundry for free.

Room Tip: Ask for a room above the 5th floor if noise is an issue, due to the downstairs bar.

Stayed for 4 nights. Be aware that there are 14 Marriotts in New Orleans and 4 on Common Street alone so you must be very specific with your cab driver! Room was spacious, clean, and quiet. Gym was pretty good. Didn't eat at the hotel but the coffee shop across the street is amazing. Aveda bath products were nice. Only downsides: microscopic pool and you had to pay for WiFi.

Room Tip: A bar and street can be a little noisy so higher floor are likely quieter.

I had the opportunity to stay at the above noted hotel from 9/19-9/24 (5 nights) while attending the AARP Convention. Renaissance properties within Marriott's collection of hotels seldom fail. Up scale full service properties that provide great restaurants, bars, and other amenities. As a Gold Elite Member, I always expect excellence. This hotel did not fail. From check-in to check-out the service was excellent. The breakfast buffet as well as the evening light meal and desert were all attractively presented and the quality of each was excellent.

A lot of work is being done up and down Canal Street. Those who will be attending the bowl game at the beginning of 2013 and the Super Bowl, should look at this property as your hotel of choice. You won't be disappointed.

I would like to thank the below named individuals for their excellent service. Questions were always answered with a smile and any and all concerns were addressed immediately. I watched each of them multitask during my stay during high occupancy at the hotel. They never missed a beat.

Thank you to:

Room Tip: I would suggest a high floor, corner rm. Perhaps 1608.

Both retro and sleekly modern we had an amazing time at this hotel. Wonderful location close to all the action. The rooms are small in a good way-think euro boutique hotel. Bath products from aveda really impressed me as well. Can't recommend this hotel enough!

Best part about this hotel is location. Stayed 3 nights in September and really enjoyed my time there. The staff is very friendly and helpful, easy parking (valet) and great central location to local attractions. Would stay again.

It was a quiet location, but wished we stayed closer to bourbon street. The one thing what I disliked was the fact that they said the beds were double beds. There was no way they were doubles, more like tiny full beds. Very nice hotel for New Orleans.

This hotel is not in the quarter but its only 2 blocks from Canal and Bourbon. The hotel bar was fun and the staff was really nice. The rooms are clean and the bathrooms are a nice size. I had some items delivered to the hotel and I had to call and ask for them to be sent up. Try Elizabeth's in the By Water district for breakfast. It is so unique and delicious.
