      Historical Traveler Reviews JW Marriott Hotel New Orleans

      Very lovely hotel

      from

      The JW Marriott is in a excellent location in New Orleans. The area is good, well lit and heavily traveled. Our rooms was an oversized king room and was very nicely appointed and different than the standard room layout. The room had plenty of storage, seating, and the furnishings seemed new and clean. Turndown service was offered. The Marriott website indicated that this hotel is undergoing a renovation. We saw and heard no evidence of this, but did note a faint paint smell in the hall. It was pleasant and clean, not obnoxious. Valet parking is onsite. The common areas of the hotel were very modern and opulent. We would stay here again.

      This is the perfect location for New Orleans. Don't be lulled into the much more expensive character hotels near Bourbon Street unless you don't like sleep. This hotel is a few minutes stroll from all the action but far enough away to have a break from the hedonism and the music. The breakfast's are a real bargain given that the food is top notch and delivered with real style. Don't confuse this with the Marriott just across the road - the JW is the real McCoy. Enjoy.

      Perfect!

      from

      Amazing view. The hotel was absolutely beautiful. We plan to make this place our Christmas night get away. It was perfect!

      Excellent room, service and location!!

      from

      12/25/03 through 12/28/03. We got a great deal on Hotel.com. This was our first trip to New Orleans and we were pleased with our corner room (room 1809, king bed) over looking Canal Street with a tiny view of the Mississippi River. Walking distance to everything. Excellent service, would stay at JW Marriot again.

      Loved it!

      from

      Just got back from a weeklong stay at the JW Marriott in New Orleans.

      Everything about the facility and staff was strictly top rate. I've been traveling to New Orleans for a number of years and this was the best hotel experience I've had in a long time. Congrats to the staff on a job well done.

      Thumbs up for jw marriott

      from

      Myself,husband and 20 mth son have just returned from a stay at jw marriott in new orleans,we had no problems at all,the staff were excellant,all extremly nice to us,the pool was great,the rooms were spotless,we requested a fridge for our babies food&milk,no problem,nothing was a problem,after reading some of the reviews i was worried before we left,but was happy when we got and stayed there.It is different strokes for different folks but thats what makes the world go round!!!!!

      Not worth the money

      from

      Definitely not a "superior" hotel as touted. As someone else noted, the hotel was far from soundproof and hotel personnel were somewhat indifferent to our complaints about very noisy neighbors. Public areas were very grand and well kept up, rooms not so much so. Location was good, but overall, not worth the money.

      Not Worth the $$$$

      from

      Our "deluxe" king room was the size of a closet; Room service was a nightmare; The so-called, "sound-proof" rooms they'd promised, were not so--We clearly heard our neighbors on both sides.

      We recommend the Hilton or another of the larger chain hotels in the area. You can get a better price, and better room!

      Le Meridien - A Beautiful Accomodation in a Great City!

      from

      Le Meridien, on Canal Street in New Orleans, is a wonderful choice for visiting this great city. After staying there this past weekend, we can't say enough good things about this hotel. The location on Canal St. is close enough to everything we wanted to visit and yet far enough from the atmosphere of Bourbon St. to afford quiet comfort. From the front desk to the bellhops to housekeeping, the staff couldn't have been nicer. They made us feel special by always remembering us and checking on our comfort. The concierge offered wonderful suggestions for restaurants and tours. Our hair dryer didn't work and upon calling housekeeping, we received a new one in 3 minutes (we timed it!) Our room was on the 29th floor - it was well appointed and offered plenty of space for our luggage. The view from the room of the river and French Quarter was fabulous. The pool was not open on our visit, but we were offered the use of the pool at the Sheraton next door. This was not a problem for us as we didn't plan on much swimming during our visit to New Orleans. We found a wonderful rate for our room by shopping on the internet and we'd highly recommend this hotel to any visitor to New Orleans. Merci Le Meridien!

      Le Meridien turns off power & heat to guest rooms

      from

      Our "electrifying" experience at Le Meridien was a literal nightmare. Upon returning to our room after midnight from a night in the Quarter, we found a 3-inch flashlight with a note from Mgr. Mario Mazzini that they were turning off ALL power and heat to ALL guest rooms at 1 AM. No electricity til noon the next day meant no lights, no ventilation, no working clock or TV, and no use of hair dryers, razors, etc. As we were leaving in the morning, we packed, showered, & dressed by the glow of a K-Mart flashlight. When expressing our dismay to Front Desk employees, they were unmoved.Finally the manager comped our parking for the 4-day stay. Abominable service!

      With the tour over we ate at Muriels on Chartres Street and had another wonderful meal after which we did make it down to Frenchmen Street. The Maison is a great jazz bar recommended by the locals and we saw a terrific group called Shotgun perform. What an end to a great time in New Orleans.

      We have decided to stay an extra day…Our bodies hate us but it is a must. We started off the morning at Willie Mae's scotch house…It’s voted the best fried chicken in North America so Mike was not leaving without trying it. When we got there the sun was beating down and there was a large line up of locals, so we decided it must be worth the wait…and two hours later we were eating fried chicken, beans, and mac & cheese. To ...

      ... down to a street called Frenchmen street where they have a lot of live music. We thought we would get dinner and watch some jazz. We found a restaurant that served authentic Cajun cuisine and there was a jazz band playing on the street just out the front so we had some free entertainment. The food was really good, I tried red beans and rice with homemade meatloaf and Bobbie had fried chicken with Mac and cheese and potato salad we also had corn bread on the ...

Although kinda tacky, Nina quite liked the atmosphere and how different this city is to everywhere else we have been to in the US whereas Pete just thought it was a sh*thole. Walked around the French Quarter which has really beautiful architecture ...
