The New Orleans Marriott is a large convention hotel located on the lower end of Canal Street, very close to both the French Quarter, the Mississippi River, and the Harrahs casino. The hotel has two towers – the Quarter Tower, and the taller River Tower. The River Tower is closer to the Mississippi, and my room in that tower had beautiful views of both the river and the French Quarter. Even though the hotel is huge, I never had a problem getting an elevator, getting service at the front desk, retrieving my car from the parking valet, or any of the other problems you sometimes have at huge convention hotels. The hotel’s location is ideal for walking to the French Quarter and all of the restaurants, bars, clubs, etc. in that area, while being far enough away that you don’t get too much noise from the nightlife. The hotel is a few blocks away from the business downtown area on Poydras, but having stayed at a supposedly high-end hotel in that area, I much prefer the Marriott. I definitely will look to stay here the next time I need to come to New Orleans.
For a river view, you should ask for the River Tower. The views are amazing.
