We saw such a good rate online ($89), so we decided to make our way to New Orleans during our road trip. We did not look closely at all the details and were a little shocked with all the additional fees when we got there. I can't lower the rating for that because it was our own fault, but I would like to point it out so that others can be prepared.
You are not allowed to park your own car. They will take your vehicle when you arrive, for a $28 charge, and park it in a place that you are not allowed to access. We had been to a few other downtown Marriott hotels previous to New Orleans and never encountered not being able to have access to our car. They stated that they would drive the car around if we needed it for anything, but that didn't really pan out the way they said.
Another charge that we were not prepared for was the fee for having the Internet in your room. ($12.95 per night using the cable or more $$ using wireless) We opted not to pay for it.
Most of the staff was very friendly, the art was interesting to look at around the hotel, and the place was very quiet. I don't think there were very many people staying there when we were there, which may explain the emptiness and quietness.
The elevator had some kind of sticky goo on the rails and spilled liquid on the floor for hours which kinda grossed me out every time I used it.
Overall, I was not as impressed with this Marriott as I've been with all the others I've stayed at, but it wasn't terrible.
