"The good, the meh, and the ugly"
Good first. The location was great--easy walking distance to my conference at the Hilton and a short walk to the French Quarter. Lots of good places to eat very close. The room was reasonably sized (with a big bathroom) and a comfortable bed. There's a mini fridge too. Internet was free and worked well. Check in and check out were easy. Rates were reasonable. The meh. The cooling system was noisy and it was hard to find the perfect spot between too hot and too cold. The staff were cordial, but a bit brusque. Not the friendliness I usually find at Marriott properties. The ugly. Two problems here. First, the carpet was visibly filthy when we checked in; we had to call to have it vacuumed. The rest of the room seemed clean, but I wonder what other corners the housekeeping staff cut. And there was a lot of noise. Not from outside--we looked out at a quiet side street and the windows were well insulated. But the walls aren't. We hear every peep from the hallways, including children running back and forth and, one night, adults talking loudly at 2 am. We also heard every peep from the neighboring room, including a nasty late-night argument (he doesn't love her anymore, she thinks). In addition, on Friday and Saturday nights the hotel hosted events in the gallery off the lobby, and the music from those made its loud way to our 3rd floor room. We were in town for a conference, which meant early weekend meetings. Not fun. If you don't care about the noise and if you make sure your room is clean, this would be a good hotel choice.
"Professional and courteous"
I stayed here for four days while attending a conference at the Hilton Riverside. Room was clean and well appointed. Only drawbacks were that breakfast was not included, and there was a $10+ charge each night for wireless. As a Marriott member the wireless was free.
"Fantastic hotel, outstanding location"
We recently stayed a Saturday night with two rooms booked for us and the kids. I love this hotel. The location is great and the area has lots to do, places to eat, or Uber/walk to the CBD or French Quarter. The lobby features lovely blown glass chandlers, interesting art pieces as well as a connected art gallery. Our room was an atrium view & the kids had a city view. Must see the view from the rooftop pool terrace! The bed was comfortable and space very roomy and welcoming. There is a restaurant onsite featuring beignets but the kids insisted on a trek to Cafe DuMonde. Next time we will leave them home! The menu looks good!
"Superb!...and close to everything!"
The room was bright, airy and very clean! The beds were so comfortable it was hard to get up! Omigosh! Some of the best sleep I've gotten in a long time! There's a small refrigerator in each room so you can keep your water, soda or beer nice and cold too! The concierge and front desk personnel were extremely nice and helpful. Emeril's restaurant is just two blocks away and the Casino, Riverwalk shopping, and French Quarter are less than 10 minutes away! The perfect place to stay without the noise of the New Orleans night life! The lobby is beautiful! Very Art Deco! Valet parking is a must because there's not many places to park on the street. It's $39.95 per night but you can come and go as many times as you like. There are other alternatives and the guys that park the cars will tell you if asked but I chose to pay for the Valet because of the convenience of being able to go in and out as much as I wanted to even though I was able to walk to 99.9% of the places I needed to go. Awesome! I will definitely stay here again! Oh, and it's a Marriott property so you can get or use your Marriott Rewards!
"Great Location in the Revitalizing Warehouse District"
We really enjoyed our visit to this hotel located in the New Orleans Warehouse / Art District. The area is rapidly becoming a must see... as many historic building renovations have been recently completed or are currently underway. We found it to be much more to our liking than previous stays in the CBD or French Quarter. The hotel staff was certainly friendly and accommodative. The check-in process was delayed, we arrived at 3:45 local, but we easily checked our bags in the hotel lock up and things went smoothly from there. The St. Charles trolly is only a couple of blocks away and for those that have not ridden it thru the Garden District and Uptown to the Botanical Gardens and Zoo, it is a must. The trolly is relatively slow and makes frequent stops, however, this is what makes the trip. The slow progress enables beautiful views of the stately mansions along St Charles Ave. Again, not to be missed. The architectural styles vary greatly from Orleans, Georgian, Tudor, Victorian... The hotel is centrally located and surrounded by excellent restaurants and coffee shops.
