This was a trip for my 40th birthday on 4th July with 2 friends. I have stayed with Marriott a lot for business (currently Gold Elite) and booked this hotel on my reward points. On arrival the lobby was being renovated and we couldn't hear a word they said to us at check-in! They misheard my name and worried us by saying we only had a 1 night booking when I was expecting 4 but it was all resolved quickly. We were also upgraded to an amazing 2 bedroom suite with jacuzzi bath on the 30th floor, which made my birthday trip extra special - so thank you so much.
The room was amazing, the four poster a little wobbly and the second bedroom shower soaked the bathroom but the beds were the usual Marriott comfort. Due to the size of the room it was a little difficult to keep the temperature right but we sorted it out in the end. All of the staff were very helpful and friendly.
The hotel is in a great location for the streetcar, the French Quarter and riverfront and generally getting around New Orleans. There is a great diner a few blocks away called the Ruby Slipper (200 Magazine St) that does amazing breakfasts.
The hotel has a small pool, which we didn't use, and the view from the Executive Lounge is great!
