This Marriott suited our needs for this trip to New Orleans....near the Convention Center and easy access to a streetcar. The room provided extras such as microwave, refrigerator, coffee, computer hookup, etc. As suggested in other reviews, we acquired a room overlooking the pool so as to avoid the nightclub street noise. Twice, we had problems with the toilet not flushing properly, but maintenance came quickly. Front desk and other personnel were friendly and accommodating. We ate only one meal there (breakfast) which unfortunately, did not encourage us to eat there again, but there are so many other places to eat in New Orleans that it did not really matter. The streetcar is just a short walk away and very handy. Be sure to buy the $3 ticket for all day travel.... or 40 cent one way fare if you are a senior citizen. Bourbon Street, Harrahs, restaurants....just a short streetcar ride away.We did not rent a car and avoided the daily $28 parking fee. Taxi to airport was only $33. Our main activities were at the convention center which is a short walk. We noticed that there is another Marriott directly across the street from the convention center, which we may want to check out next time. The shops at Riverwalk are closed for remodeling until later in 2014, which was disappointing. Riverwalk is very close, as well as the cruise lines if you are going on a cruise. There is so much to do in New Orleans that you will not really spend a lot of time in the hotel room.
