Avoid the Courtyard by Marriott on Julia St in the warehouse district. As a Gold Elite member they refused to provide free breakfast and also refused to compensate in lieu of Marriott points. This hotel is a total dive in an old warehouse ready to fall apart with barn beams and bricks and stained carpet and very old fixtures with very small dirty pool. It is also right next door to a electrical transformer station and the hotel entrance is from an underground parking garage. It is a grossly polluted area. The front desk GM could not provide me with an HDMI cord for the television and would not provide me a link or contact to post a review of his hotel. Do not stay here…there are tons of other Marriott hotels in the area that are well maintained. People in New Orleans are the friendliest most cheerful people in the world however.
