Slept in again and had a healthy breakfast before getting out to see N'awlins.
God my feet were hurting by my late lunch (Princess, you would've hated it LOL). I walked pretty much all of Bourbon St, down to the French Market area and down Decatur St, then back up and over onto Magazine St and walked that for AGES waiting for it to turn …
Sleep ins are awesome!
The tour didn't pick me up til 10.30am so I slept in a bit and then went downstairs to get a quick breakfast from Starbucks, coffee and porridge.
The tour was really good. The bus picked me up from the hotel and then we had to drive for about an hour to get to Honey Island where the swamp was. The best thing …
I'm sure I have already mentioned that this holiday has been slightly jinxed.. LOL
Well here is the next installment...
So I had already mostly packed my suitcase yesterday and this morning I got up to get ready to go to the airport. I was actually running early (thankfully as it turns out) so everything was going great until I …

Historical Traveler Reviews New Orleans Marriott
If you like bedbugs, this is your place
my bed was infested with some biting insects. when I got back home after two nights in this place, I looked like I had been at the Everglades for 48 hours with no clothes on.
stayed at the hotel from 9/27/03 to 10/2/03. I had 2 rooms reserved and we were placed on the pool level. During the evening of 9/28/03, we observed 3 cockroaches crawling up the wall of the hotel room. I immediately went down to the lobby and the rooms were changed to rooms on the 15th floor. A check of the rooms on the 15th floor showed that the air conditioning was not working. We had to go back to the front desk and again request to be moved. The front desk was able to locate 2 rooms on the 32nd floor. The rooms were in working order and we had no other problems with the rooms. The front desk was very helpful with this problem. As stressful as this evening was dealing with the cockroaches, the front desk was very understanding and accessible. The front desk seemed to give me the impression that this is not unusual and that they have had to deal with this before. On 10/1/03 in the evening hours I was packing things up and realized that I needed to make a copy of a receipt that I had, I went down to the front desk and asked if there was any way possible that I could make 1 copy, the clerk advised me that there wasnt a copier machine in the front desk area and that I would need to go to the business office. As I walked away from the counter, I saw the Security Officer standing near the front desk and asked him if there was anyplace close that had a copier machine, as I really needed to make a copy of the receipt. The security officer told me to go to the front desk and ask them, that there was one in the front desk area. I advised him that I had already tried that and that I was told there wasnt a copier machine there. The security officer rolled his eyes and said that there was one there, but that he could not go over the clerks head and make me a copy. The security officer directed me across the street to a different hotel, which graciously made me the 1 copy that I needed. This just does not seem like the kind of service that a Marriott Hotel would want to provide.The location of the hotel is great and the closeness to everything was wonderful, it is just disappointing that the pool is useless as cold as the water is. After walking around in the evening, it would have been nice to relax in a hot tub, which I was surprised to see that the hotel did not have one.The room on the 32nd floor had an AWESOME view of the river and the beds were very, very comfortable. I stayed at a convention rate, but a Priceline bid would be even better. There is a Parking fee of 23.00, if I ever went back, I would not rent a car as it is not needed.
In September my husband and I took a weekend trip to New Orleans for our anniversary. I booked the room on Priceline. I did stay for under $100 a night. The room we recvd was on the 36th floor. The room was clean, I never saw anyone in the hall. The hotel is very nice and a 4 star as rated. We enjoyed ourselves. It's in a great location. Valet service was the best. I would stay again, but hopefully next time I will get a room on the 20th floor. 36 is just too high. My ears popped continually in the elevator.
Home away from home
Been there 4 times now, know the city of New Orleans like the back of my hand, including the outskirts. My dad lives in sildell, lousiana. I stayed at the Marriott, down the street from the VA Hospital several times, nice accommodations, cheap, not far from everything, walking distance to casino, football stadium, french quarters, remember taxi and trolleys everywhere. Fell in love with St. Charles area. Would love to make it my home away from home. Old houses, old charm, and then there are those great pastries..it was quite safe, I walked at night, I walked during the day, I saw homeless people, I saw rich people in fancy restaurants, It's a metropolitan city, just like NY. Great City to visit over a Weekend.
NO Marriott, good if you can get it cheap
Stayed at the New Orleans Marriott for a week during July, 2003 for a convention. Hotel was great, but not for the price. If you can get it for the going rate on Priceline, (check out ...). The $50 bids that people are getting would be wonderful, but at $150 a night including taxes, a little exhorbitant for what you get.Clean, friendly and easy access are its high points, the standard room is small, I would say around 250 square feet with two double beds, a reasonable sized bathroom etc.Enjoyed my stay, but would only do discount again here. Or have an expense account.... :-).
Marriott New Orleans
The hotel lobby area was very nice and the hotel is centrally located to most the areas attractions. The service at the hotel was not what one would expect from a hotel of this class. The room was not kept clean. There was someone elses soap left in the shower, the carpet was dirty, and there was gum stuck to the leading edge of the desk by one of the previous occupants. The gum stayed there during my entire stay. I would not stay there again.
Just returned from the first weekend of Jazz Fest in NO. My friends and I do a Girls Only trip each year to different locales and this year it was NO.Can't really complain about the Marriott. Got in around noon on Thursday and waited about 5 min to check in. Requested adjoining rooms and had no problem getting them. Rooms were "typical" Marriott rooms. Nice, clean, comfortable. Nothing fancy but did the trick.Pool was nice but the 2 towers put it in the shade for a bit each day but we still were able to relax by it and catch some rays.Location was PERFECT for taking the shuttle to Jazz Fest which left from the Sheraton directly across the street. $10 roundtrip and it was perfect. GREAT restaurant located about 2 blocks away called Lemon Grass. Small place in the International Hotel (?) on Camp St (?) but EXCELLENT food!Also great location for partying on Bourbon St. Just about 3 blocks away and felt safe walking there and back each night.During Jazz Fest rates at all the hotels can be high but we found this one to be one of the more average rates and in a great location. Very happy with our choice.
Just got back from the big easy... great vacation spot with the girls. Stayed at the Marriott on Canal st. close to Casino, Burbon St. and all the action. Went on the swamp tour.. expensive since we only saw the head of one gator and 2 snakes.. but still fun. Marriott was nice, safe to walk to and a great price on priceline.. 70/night... I had wanted to stay at some of the nicer hotels, but couldn't swing it.. the Omni Royal on Royal and St James is nice, close and expensive. Save your $ because you hardly spend any time in your hotel anyways. Great food.. went to a restaurant at River bend area.. by chance Jockamos or something like that, hole in the wall looking... best meal I had. Had Easter brunch at the Comodore Palace in the Garden District....Excellent, very chic and end Excellent, beautiful upstairs room, formal,great service and food. Watch out for the hurrican drinks.... danger. Fun Fun Fun... can't wait to go back.
Everything was great!
We stayed at this hotel for 3 days after Christmas. The service was wonderful as was the room (maybe a little small, but we got our rate off Priceline, so who cares???) We didn't spend too much time in the room. We were able to walk everywhere - French Quarter, Harrah's, the river, etc...........great parking, etc..........very accomodating! Also, this was during the Sugar Bowl festivities and one of the teams was staying here as well...........however, everything was calm and quiet throughout the hotel. I highly recommend this hotel - especially if you want a larger chain.
Yep, not bad at all...
The New Orleans Marriott is a really nice hotel. I'm pretty much a confirmed "Marriott-er" and the NO Marriott reenforces that opinion.
The food's standard Marriott fare and the rooms too - though no wet bar in the room (perhaps us Brits drink more than you lot over there!).
Views (if you're Mississippi side) are great - paddle steamers to watch in between meetings!
I was there during for a Convention which basically took over the city - Bourbon St was awash with us all, but I never felt afraid or intimidated in the city, maybe lucky but I think overall it's a great place.
