We arrived in New Orleans and stayed at the New Orleans Marriott, a great location on Canal St., close to the French quarter, some quality restaurants, and a main street car junction that could get you almost anywhere for $1.25. Check in was not smooth, as the room that we had been guaranteed was no longer available, leaving us the choice of an upgrade or to assume a room with handicap facilities, and we could overhear that this choice was being given to other travelers on either side of us as they checked in. We chose the upgrade, bringing the cost of the room to almost $300.00 per night. We were placed in the Riverside Tower with a pretty dull view of the Mississippi River. Rooms were small but clean, and the hotel has some age. The hotel staff was not the most pleasant or efficient, and several requests for directions or recommendations prompted curt answers or incorrect information. Concierge services were the biggest offenders in both cases. So, good location, do not expect too much else, plan on paying more than the hotel is worth, and enjoy your stay in a city that is just a shell of its former self.
