The outside and interior of the hotel is nice and what you would expect out of a JW Marriott hotel. The concierge lounge has a NOLA decor and good continental style breakfast (nothing fancy similar to a best western). Unfortunately it's not open during the weekends. Not too many places to eat inside the hotel but lots of food around...

Dearohjameso, Thank you for taking time to share your experience about your stay at my hotel. I appreciate your candor and apologize for any odors in your room.

This has to be the best and easiest place to stay; it is a smaller, boutique-like hotel where the staff is just fantastic. Everyone is super friendly and helpful - the concierge, Isabel Van Bockel, really does go out of her way to assist in any way possible. The rooms are clean and spacious. The hotel is very conveniently located...

I ended up at the JW Marriott quite by accident because my usual hotel was already booked for French Quartet Festival. I was very pleased with my stay here. The room was clean, and the layout of our corner king room was great - the bathroom had just the tub and toilet, outside the bathroom was the sink and counter,...

In New Orleans for business, I chose not to stay the the conference hotel but to stay at this JW Marriott instead. I am so glad I did. After reading many reviews I was leery of staying because the hotel does not offer concierge lounge on the weekend and because of the reviews that noted noise was a problem. I...

We had a unexpected layover in New Orleans due to cruise ship troubles. The Marriott was very helpful in helping us salvage our vacation. Our room was very comfortable and quiet and gave us a panoramic view of the quarter that was beautiful in the evenings. The staff were very courteous and helpful.

Came here for a girls weekend. Every interaction with hotel employees was superb. Friendly, helpful, never feel like they are looking for a tip just happy to do their job (although will accept tip if offered, do not awkwardly wait). Rooms/location also excellent. But the employees were just exceptional. Bravo to the manager that hires them and keeps the good...

So the hubs and I decided to take a long weekend in NOLA. We made the drive (which is awful on the return trip) to celebrate our anniversary. I will tell you we imagined daytime pool rest and nights at jazz clubs. The latter was great, but the pool deck was being redone- not posted on their website. Total bummer...

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
