I got to the hotel right at 5 p.m. Beware the parking garage. The hotel shares the parking garage with an office building. There is a narrow ramp that is shared for going up and going down. The office folks come down that ramp at breakneck speeds and do not yield to anyone coming up the ramp. The parking signs for hotel guests are extremely poor. The entrance door to the hotel elevator lobby looks like it leads to a closet. All very confusing for a first-timer. HOWEVER, once in the hotel, it is lovely. Open and airy lobby. The front desk staff could not have been nicer. Especially, Emily. She upgraded our room, gave us coupons for appetizers at the bar and was just down right sweet. Our room was very nice and CLEAN. We could not have asked for a better place for our weekend get away. Thank you.

I spoke several times to a reservation person named "Dot". She was unbelievale as a sorce of good information and help in general. She knew about the Voyager & the hows, whens & becauses of my entire trip. She made our stay at the hotel worth every penny. I made this trip with my cousin & his wife. We left our car at the hotel and taxied to the cruise terminal. It saved us some and we didn't have to fool with driving or parking at the terminal. It was a good deal.
The hotel was damaged during Katrina but nicely refurbished when we got there. The staff were nice and they helped us a lot. The room was all you could hope for and you could see the lake from our room. The resturant was good albeit a tad expensive for me. I am in my mid sixties and live on Social Security. I'm kinda a Taco Delite guy. You know, five to seven dollars is highrolling things in my world.
We stayed here in Dec., 2011.

I came here in mid April driving a group of High School Students for a competition. My group was going to put me up at the Days Hotel by I 10 but they were being very rigid over the payment of my room. The sales lady who happen to be working late at this Marriott was able to give my group a matched rate for me to stay there. Nice Upgrade. They had me park my bus 11 blocks away and the Valet staff was very helpful getting me to and from my bus. Note: when driving up Causeway Blvd. N. you must be on your left lane and turn left on 6th st which is the very last left on Causeway by the U-Haul rental place. If you miss that turn, You will be going on the Causeway for 25+ miles before you can turn around. Then you turn another right and you will see the entrance.
Do note also this Marriott is inside of an office building and the lowest floor is the 9th floor. Pool is not for families. It is part of a health club that has age restrictions on that pool. If you must have a pool for your little ones, find other accommodations. This Hotel is more geared towards the business traveler. Wifi was not free and I had to pay $13 for crappy wifi coverage for my mobile device, UGH!
The room itself was nice and it was nice being high up and having a skyline view. The HVAC system was nice and quiet. There is a Starbucks in the lobby which was a very nice touch.
If you want good Cafe Au lait and Beignets, there is a place called Morning Call on 17th st and Hullen St. Open 24/7 Cash Only! Cheaper than Cafe DuMond. Best Oysters is at ACME Seafood on Veterans Blvd. Get the Chargrilled, YUM!
Overall I will recommend this hotel.
