I stayed at the AC twice in the past month for business, and I found it to be a great alternative to the regular Marriott in New Orleans. There is no lounge which is a bummer, but they have European style (similar food to a European airport lounge) breakfast and a bar with GREAT drinks and small plates. Each Platinum member gets 2 free drinks, so this is the place to stay if you are looking for delicious cocktails and drinks on tap! The small plates are very affordable and delicious.
The rooms are good, with great updated TVs (you can link them to your Netflix/Hulu accounts which was cool), comfortable beds, and nice showers.
The biggest downside to this hotel is it is impossible to find your way around on the guest floors; it is like a maze and they don't have signs telling you where the elevator is! Additionally, the room I had the second night looked directly into a parking garage and was extremely noisy and creepy.
