I stayed here for a conference last week, and was generally pleased with the location. The decor is really nice, the room was comfortable, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and just about everything has a touchscreen or another tech-savvy way of getting things done (from email check-in to printing boarding passes down on the first level). Staff was really great at check in - they will call you when your room is ready if you take one of the mid-day flights into NOLA and they will also hold your bags so you are free to grab lunch or coffee or something instead of just sitting in the lobby. The elevator system is high tech and kind of cool - you use your room key to scan under a reader to bring an elevator that will bring you directly to your floor - no button pushing needed. The resturants at the hotel are also pretty good, and there is a Starbucks with Free WiFi on the second level. Meeting rooms/ballrooms are very spacious with good acoustics and presentation technology.
Like others have said, it's a really confusing hotel if you're in town for a conference. It's pretty big, and navigating around random corners and little hallways to nowhere can be annoying if you're trying to get to a meeting. I was not a big fan of hauling my stuff up two escalators and down a hallway full of people when trying to get to the elevator to go up to the 16th floor and navigate the long hallways. They offer bell service but I was in a rush to get some work done and didn't feel like using them (and at this point I was out of cash for tips because the staff is just that helpful). You need to pay for internet in your room or otherwise work in the lobby or Starbucks (note: lobby internet didn't work). They also had a band or something playing until 11:30pm on a Wednesday night - even up on the 16th floor it was pretty loud. But I guess it might not bother you if you're in town for vacation or something else - I was trying to concentrate on writing a report.
There's an airport shuttle available if you book it 24 hrs ahead of time; otherwise taxi service is available at a standard fee of $33 for one person (they add $1 for each additional person).
