“Very nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

We decided to stay here after getting a good deal through Hotwire. We were heading out on a cruise on a Sunday and came to New Orleans a day early to meet our family to hang out for the evening. They only have valet parking which is quite expensive @ $38/night but seemed to be standard for the area. The bellhop took our bags to a holding area until we got checked in which didn't take too long considering there were a lot of people in the lobby when we arrive a little after 4pm. There was a choir convention going on that weekend. The elevators were a little different & tricky. You didn't just push your floor number, you had to enter the floor number and then look for which elevator it told you to go to. Once you got the hang of it, it was fine.
The rooms were nice, not very big but nice and comfy. Everything was clean, no issues with that. It was within walking distance to Bourbon Street which we liked. We would stay here for the right price/deal. Check out was easy and simple. Bellhop arrived within about 10 minutes of calling them which I was surprised considering it was close to checkout time. They had a car pulled around within about 10 minutes of getting out there as well. Overall, very good stay.

I stayed at this hotel during the 2014 Essence Music Festival. The hotel was prepared for the influx of Essence music festival visitors. They had welcome maps friendly smiles, specialty cocktails in the lounge area, dj playing some good music. Valet was very helpful with all of our luggage. The room was nice and comfortable with a view of the french quarters. We were also close to all of the attractions and close enough to walk to Bourbon street, the French Quarters and the Casino and mall. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Be sure to request a room with a view.

Dear MimiSkyy,

We're glad to hear that you found our hotel impeccably prepared for the busy Essence weekend. It's a great time to visit the city and especially New Orleans Marriott. We hope you tried Chef Rico's St. Louis style BBQ- it was delicious! We eagerly await your return.

Stayed at the Marriott on a recent visit to NOLA to visit with friends, good stay reasonable rate for the area. Check in was busy but soon after we were in line several orher clerks came and started helping out. Overall a good stay, clean room, comfortable beds. Minor complaint about parking, I know this is a large hotel and everyone was checking out, I am thankful my car came fairly quickly (within 10 min). Please plan ahead the guy sitting next to me said he had been waiting 20 minutes for his car.

Stayed here for 3 nights during a recent business trip. When you walk in there are several police officers in the lobby - hotel is in a very unsafe part of town so don't go out by yourself. My room smelled dank & moldy the whole time I was there, even with A/C on. The towel bar in the shower was falling off, & there was someone else's hairs stuck on the bathroom door which was weird & kind of gross (there was also hair in the shower), so makes me wonder a little about cleaning staff quality. Towels were scratchy & not soft at all. Several channels on the TV were fuzzy & unwatchable, bad cable connection? My door key cards hardly ever worked, had to have them re-set 3 times. Ate dinner on first night in bar/restaurant downstairs and the food was very poor quality, especially for the price. And on last night the ice machine down the hall started making a thunderous noise like a bulldozer & I had to call for someone to address it.

Positives: good water pressure, Starbucks on site, nice staff in the lobby.

From arrival to departure the stay was flawless and well exceeded the expectations of any discerning guest. From Anastasia and Jane at the front office, Isa in the lobby lounge, Letictia at 5 Fifty 5 (breakfast); (morning of 8/16/14), Doris at 5 Fifty 5 along with Tanner and Keith and houseman James and all the staff in At Your Service, to housekeeping staff this has been the best stay I have ever encountered personally and most importantly the best executed stay for my family. They have been blown away. Some examples of going above and beyond are that 5 Fifty 5, restaurant prepared a cake for the members in my party who's birthday we came to celebrate. Housekeeping servicing our room to perfection, everyone greeting and constantly checking on us and treating us with such a high level of VIP service. We received an upgraded room with a view of the Mississippi River on the 36th floor and a welcome amenity which made a great stay even better. Sometimes it's in the small touches and signs of genuine and warm gestures of hospitality that go such a long way. Food quality was impeccable, pool in the 5th floor on the roof was clean, very pleasant, and most importantly my family and I had a great time there. All staff were professional in all of the right areas. All staff on all levels from any point of view were in perfect uniform standards from Valet, to all Bell, Concierge,Restaurant, Housekeeping, Loss Prevention, Valet, etc. that plus their winning smiles will always be remembered and I now must make it my top hotel in New Orleans by far. During future stays my level of standards and expectations will have to match your amazing hotels performance in any city that I or we ever travel to.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you to an exceptional, BRILLIANTLY executed stay at New Orleans Marriott. And thank you to all those mentioned above and for those whom I may have left out by mistake. I promise I know who you are.

Room Tip: All rooms are great. Go out and enjoy the city.

This was a great Marriott right outside the city, excellent rooms and amenities. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area. The lounge was great as well as the bar. Service was excellent.

CON: The parking is tricky in the am and pm as you are coming and going as the workers who use the garage are doing the opposite and its a tight fit getting in and out.

Room Tip: The parking is tricky with the garage and the associated workers who use the garage, going out at 7...

Bottom line. Would we stay here again? Absolutely. Don't know if our Platinum Elite status helped but the service in this hotel was outstanding. We were upgraded to the executive level and the room had a great view of the Mississippi. We stayed at the Pere Marquette the week before and while above average and outstanding service the New Orleans Marriott was a step above. I was a little afraid of the age of this place since I stayed here in the early 70's. It has been updated since and getting ready to be updated again. The food in the Executive Lounge was quite good. Another reason to stay loyal to one hotel chain. And Marriott seems to be one with outstanding benefits. Keep up the good work Marriott.
