Great Location and Hotel!!
Posted Mar 18, 2017
We stayed here for a quick getaway, but wanted to miss the chaos of Mardi Gras. The hotel is located centrally in the Downtown area and within walking distance to everything! We did not rent a car and do not recommend it. We were able to walk almost instantly to famous "Bourbon Street" but was not directly on it and avoided the parties and noise. The hotel was also walking distance to every restaurant and shop that we wanted to try including the Starbucks in the lobby.
Check in was fast and easy. The staff was great and helpful whenever we needed it. The lobby was fairly busy with spring break traffic and all the conferences being held at the hotel, but definitely not an inconvenience.
Our room was located on the 30th floor. The view was great! The room was very clean and updated. It was on the smaller side compared to other Marriotts we have been to, however, just right for what 2 people needed. The bed was very comfortable and room temperature perfect. The bathroom was also very clean and maintained. There was a little noise from the hallway as the door does is not sealed all the way to the ground, but also not a big inconvenience.
The pool which was located on the 5th floor was nice, but not used due to the cold weather. There was an adjoining laundry room which is very convenient for long stays. Overall, the hotel was well kept and showed no signs of being dated.
We recommend it for future stays and will definitely be coming back!!
