New Orleans Downtown Marriott at the Convention Center

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

When I arrived at this hotel it was very late—was delayed 5 hours and was traveling for a total 30+ because of weather. It was raining buckets when I was dropped off in the dark, in this unfamiliar city. I asked the Airport Shuttle driver where my hotel was, and he pointed across multiple lanes of traffic and said, “it’s right there.” I didn’t realize at the time that this wasn’t the usual procedure and looked for a crosswalk. It was a block down. I walked there dragging a large suitcase and 2 carry ons. I crossed the street with the walk signal and almost got all the way across when a large vehicle zoomed by and soaked me even more with a fan of muddy water. I walked back up the block to the hotel and arrived exhausted, hungry and mad as a wet hen. The supervisor in charge saw right away my condition and turned my experience around immediately. She was genuinely kind and helped me report the incident to the airport shuttle. She saw me in, checked on me later, gave me a hug before I checked out four days later. Her name is Susana Martinez and she would be welcome in my home as she made me welcome at the Marriott. She is the epitome of hospitality and Marriott is very lucky to have her in their administration.

Enjoyed my experience. Staff was very helpful. Felt very comfortable.

The hotel was good and the staff was friendly. The only thing which requires improvement in my opinion is the housekeeping which was not perfect and a bit slow, but I was there for Mardi Gras so it's understandable. Also, note the swimming pool is tiny and not suitable for actual swimming.

I was fortunate to stay at the Marriott Convention Center while attending a conference. The convenience saved time, and money on cabs and the staff were exceptional in their assistance and hospitality. The hotel is clean, comfortable and convenient and I recommend it to both business and leisure travelers as the proximity to the Warehouse district is wonderful -- thank you!

Conveniently located to everything. Walking distance to Casino and Mall with trolley to the French Quarter.

I had a two night-stay and it was very good. The most attractive feature of staying at this place is it close proximity to the New Orleans Convention Center and the RiverWalk.

Hotel was nice and clean, up to date. Was within walking distance to Fulton Place Parking Garage, New Orleans riverwalk mall, Harrahs Casino, and the carnival cruise ship terminal. Would definitely stay again.

Everything was awesome, from the front desk clerk as we arrived late at night, to the Bell Staff as we needed there assistance, highly recommend this Hotel - especially if you are taking a cruise out of New Orleans terminal.

Clean room. Quiet. Comfortable. All around great room.

The beds were very little and we got told to be quiet around 11 at night(not cool) we just wanted to have girl talk and the toliet kept getting stop up, but the part about the whole experience was the staff made us feel at home........

Check in was easy in spite of crowd. Breakfast buffet was very good and the staff was friendly.

The room was great for business travel. Wi-Fi, an excellent restaurant, reasonable room rate, convenient to the French Quarter, River Walk, and the convention center. I can't say enough about how pleasant the entire staff is.

The hotel did meet my expectations. My only disappointment was not in the hotel itself, but the cost to visit New Orleans in a nice a hotel at all is not a low price expense. Overlooking that, however, I was very pleased with the location being across the street from food and clothes shopping as well as walking distance from the hotel on Canal Street where my conference was being held.

We were extremely pleased with everything. Everyone was so helpful.

Made it to hotel, staff was ok. Room was NOT as described. Was told there would be more to the room than there actually was. Called for "comforters" and they took an hour and a half to bring us thin blankets, with cotton ball things all over them which shed all over the room. Overall however a good location and was pretty clean.

The hotel was in a great location across from the NO convention center. My room was clean & comfortable.

Other than a broken phone, an unstaffed hotel bar, wireless problems, a fire drill (daytime, luckily, but without any staff follow-up) and slightly inattentive vacuuming, our stay was pleasant. The location is perfect for walking to museums and the French Quarter. The staff was friendly and the concierge was helpful.

Comfortable beds, very accommodating. Staff is helpful with suggestions on where to eat and what to see.

This is a very nice and clean hotel. The staff were friendly and did their best to accommodate our party. This is a great hotel for the price and location. It may not be right by the french quarter and/or bourbon street, but its only a 5-10 min walk away. I would definitely stay here again.

Pretty easy to get in and out of, just a little farther than we meant to be from our interests. Parking got very expensive. Lovely trip, though.
