Anyone have a recent experience at one or more of the Marriott's in New Orleans? I am heading there for a short trip to meet a buddy. I think I am going to stay at either the JW Marriott or the Renaissance Pere Marquette. The last time I was there, years ago, I stayed at the Renaissance. I hear there is some construction going on outside the Renaissance now.
Anyway, there is about a $30 difference per night if I stay at the JW on the Government rate. I noticed that the JW does is one of the hotels that is excluded from the guaranteed breakfast when the lounge is closed. This should not effect me too much since I will be there Wednesday through Saturday (I know who leaves New Orleans on a Saturday ...) so I think I would just miss out on breakfast on Saturday morning.
Any suggestions on which hotel is better? Any other Marriott's you would stay at in New Orleans?
