Chose this room because it was walking distance to the French Quarter and just off the streetcar line. It appears Marriott is trying to bring some European flair to this American property, yet they chose to bring some of the European features that don't need imported. For instance, the bathroom door is lightly frosted glass. And it doesn't shut properly, it swings, both out and in. This affords a minimal amount of privacy. This might be fine for a single traveler or even a young couple but it is a strange choice in a room with two double beds. Also, the beds are on a part of the room raised above the door and bathroom. One edge of one bed is up against two stairs. Aesthetically fine, but in the middle of the night, not so pleasant to wake up teetering over the steps in the dark. I may stay again, but I'd ask for a room without the raised feature. I also wouldn't ask the staff for any restaurant recommendations. The doorman sent us to a tourist trap in the French Quarter that made us really regret that bathroom's lack of privacy the first night. He must get a kickback to send people there. There is a lovely crepe and coffee shop right around the corner that serves a good breakfast in the mornings. (He didn't point us there. We found it on our own.)
