I stayed at the Marriott for 5 days for a conference in June and thoroughly enjoyed it. There were 2-3 conferences happening during this time, so the hotel lobby was always full of people, but never really crowded. The lobby offers an open lounge with TVs, and lots of seating so it is always easy to find someone, or just people-watch! The business center and Starbucks are also located just off the hotel lobby.
The hotel features two separate elevator banks, one of the River Tower (41 floors) and one for the Quarter Tower (maybe 13-15 floors?). Both elevator banks are connected to the ballroom and meeting spaces.
Since I arrived early in the morning, my King room was not yet ready. I was offered a room with 2 queens, or an alternate accessible King room which is what I accepted. The room was large and very clean. The maid service was very good. The only items lacking were a small refrigerator and an in-room safe which would have been nice, but not necessities.
I was able to walk to most places from the hotel - many great restaurants (Dickie Brennans is right around the corner and an excellent steak house!). The French Quarter is about a 15-minute walk down the street. There is a CVS drugstore about a block way which was convenient. Harrah's Casino is also about 1-2 blocks.
The hotel food was good, although most of the meals I had were served for the large conference I was with. I did order from the hotel lobby lounge one afternoon and it was probably the only real disappointment of the trip. I ordered a Rueben sandwich, and it was not very good, the corned beef was mostly all fat. But otherwise, the service during the meals was excellent.
The overall hotel staff seemed very accomodating and were helpful when needed. I would recommend this hotel for future stays.
