Courtyard by Marriott New Orleans Downtown/Convention Center

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We had a nice room with a balcony overlooking the pool. I was able to sit and read. We walked to French Quarter, the Riverwalk and Bourbon Street.

After an early rise 3AM to catch my flight into New Orleans was grateful for an early check in. Room and bed was a nice surprise. Hotel was quite so no trouble sleeping well. All the staff friendly, and professional. Wished for a larger selection of food items. A little pricey I thought. Liked those BIG fluffy bathroom towels. Good location to convention center ,other restaurants and sights to see and walk to.

Wonderful location, great staffs, comfortable room. Great experience! Will return!

Good comfortable stay. Safe location, near the River Walk and close to the French Quarter. The Convention Center/French Quarter area of New Orleans is a fun walk to all of the sights. I left my car parked at the Hotel for my entire stay and walked everywhere.

Best hotel deal i found this past Halloween weekend!

Hotel is awesome-loft style very uptown feel. Did not get to sample food as we seemed to hit it EVERYTIME it was closing...overall great place to stay!

Great location, walking distance to Bourbon street/French Quarter make sure you have your walking shoes. Close to Riverwalk and Trolley to travel.

Fantastic Hotel, great service and super rooms. Just wish the food area was open longer than the short breakfast and lunch times.

I recommend this hotel. It is near to the cruise port (10 minutes walking), and near to downtown (20 minutes walking)

The hotel was clean, staff was friendly and a good location. Close enough to walk to Bourbon street but closer to the riverfront area and casino.

The room was clean and fresh. The event we were attending was literally across the street - outside our window. It is close to the French Quarter and walkable to Harrah's and many locations in the Warehouse district.

Valet parking was awful,the head valet attendent was rude. My checkout day,he lost my keys,I had to wait an hour for the owner of the valet company to come find my keys.

Firstly, we planned a vacation trip to New Orleans around christmas and had issues getting there. We called the hotel to let them know that we'd be a day late due to the fact that we were forced to drive there (21 hrs) due to 4 flight delays caused by weather which wouldnt have allowed us to get there till four days later. The woman on the phone said it wouldnt be a problem but we'd still get charged for the first day we reserved....annoying and unfortunate but whatever. We got there and the front desk gentleman told us that the woman we spoke to canceled our entire reservation so we had no room anymore....after driving 21 hours to get there...after consulting with a manager we were able to get into an available room which was next to the fitness room (which was decently equipted for a hotel to me and im an athlete), had a nice balcony which was our room sliding glass door away from the pool and the hot tub which was a very nice touch. We absolutely made good use of this and it was a highlight to our vacation. There is a breakfast stand which doubles as a bar downstairs but to be honest....most of the food there is not very good although convenient and im used to having a great restaurant and bar at the hotel's i stay in so it was a bit disappointing. The fact that the hotel was close enough to several cool bars and restaurants though did make up for it a bit and you were blocks away from Bourbon street which is better than actually being located ON the fun but overwhelming sketchy chaos that is Bourbon. Overall it was a good choice given the options and we wanted somewhere quality that was not crazy expensive but close enough for us to walk and this fit the bill. Staff was friendly and gave prompt service bringing us anything we needed that was not in our rooms (including a microwave), so its worth it in ways but dont expect it to be the best place youve ever stayed..just average enough to do what it needed for us.

parking was horible, the staff was horible, they double charged me and forgot to put towels in my room

We were in town to see WIcked. The room was nice. Clean. And the layout of the room and of the entire property was very interesting (in a good way). The only problem that we had was that housekeeping (or someone) tried to get in our room while we were there on three different occassions. If it had not been for the safety lock, I guess they would've come on in! It was a bit unsettling.

The location of this hotel was perfect. Not too close to all of the madness of Bourbon st. however it's in walking distance to all of the major N.O. attractions such as French Quarters, Bourbon st, River front mall and more. The only draw back is the parking if you don't pay for the parking at the hotel, which is too high then you have to pay to park on the streets but it's much cheaper than the $28.00 daily required by the hotel...

It was a great location for Mardi Gras...walking distance to the French Quarter, Casino, River Walk and the parades. Parking is expensive ($28/day) and the staff was not very attentive or friendly.

it's a nice hotel if you are not looking to anything but relax. very clean it's just a hotel perfect if you are there for events because you shouldn't be spending all your time in the hotel. yes I would stay again

Our check in and check out here was seamless and aided by a friendly and knowledgeable staff. The location is excellent-- a quick walk from the quarter. You usually can't even park closer than this if you drive in. However, we were assigned to a room and didn't ask any questions; this was our mistake. Many of the rooms on the west side of the building only have one window facing the enclosed inside courtyard/ dining area! Not much of a view or a way to let light in. So make sure you're not getting one of these rooms, if possible.

The hotel is clean. This was a business trip and only needed a place to sleep during the duration of the meeting. Great for business traveling without the flares for a decent night sleep.
