    4.0-star Hotel Class
    Situated on the edge of the famed French Quarter (and along the Mardi Gras parade route), the Sheraton New Orleans Hotel is set in a prime location for both work and play in the Crescent City. The property has more than 105,000 square feet of event space spread across several different venues and the FedEx Business Center complete with computers, printers and free internet access, which appeals to business travelers. Meanwhile, amenities like the on-site fitness center and rooftop pool and deck attract leisure visitors. Regardless of the reason for your stay, you'll find all 1,110 accommodations decorated in neutral tones with blue accents. Each also features a floor-to-ceiling window, a Sheraton Sweet Sleeper bed, a flat-screen LCD TV and a coffee maker. Past guests praised the rooms' cleanliness, as well as the staff's friendly demeanor. The only pitfalls, according to past visitors, were the pricey fees for Wi-Fi access and valet parking. When hunger sets in, dining options include the Roux Bistro, serving traditional New Orleans cuisine, and the Pelican Bar, which serves cocktails and lighter fare. What's more, this Sheraton outpost allows Marriott Bonvoy members to collect or use points at the hotel.

    4.0-star Hotel Class
    Consider this hotel if you're looking to be in the thick of things, especially during Mardi Gras, when the JW Marriott has a great vantage point of the parades. Others have used this hotel as their home base for business travel and for the springtime New Orleans Jazz Fest. But if you want a hotel loaded with special perks and overwhelming comfort, recent guests do note that this property doesn't offer much more than the basics. Guest rooms are a decent size with plush duvets, marble bathrooms and bathrobes, desks and flat-screen TVs. What's more, the hotel is home to a fitness center and an outdoor saltwater pool. Lodgers report that the on-site Fogo De Chao, a Brazilian steakhouse, is pretty tasty. If you'd rather branch out beyond your digs, the hotel's ideal location means there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance.

    Surrounded by lots of shops and galleries and close to the excitement of Bourbon Street, the W New Orleans – French Quarter certainly has location in its favor.

    According to recent guests, the best thing about the New Orleans Marriott is its on-site restaurant, 5Fifty5. The hotel also features a bar, 55 Fahrenheit, that offers a menu of more than 200 wines.  Past travelers praised both the service and the cuisine, citing the large breakfast buffet as a favorite, which is free for those staying in M Club rooms. Not only does the M Club lounge serve breakfast, but guests staying in these rooms can find midday snacks and hors d'oeuvres, as well as late-night bites and complimentary nonalcoholic beverages. Those staying in standard rooms were just as pleased with their amenities, which include oversized chairs, coffee makers, 37-inch flat-screen TVs and Wi-Fi access (for a fee). When guests aren't in their rooms they can take advantage of the fitness center and outdoor pool before venturing out on the town. Visitors praised the convenient location of the New Orleans Marriott, which sits just two blocks south of Bourbon Street, for being close to the action yet far enough away for those business trips looking for some quiet.

    AC Hotel New Orleans Bourbon/French Quarter Area
    New Orleans, LA
    1.1 miles to city center
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    • Free WiFi

    Though the AC Hotel New Orleans Bourbon/French Quarter Area occupies a historic building a few blocks southwest of the French Quarter, its interiors are decidedly modern. Rooms feature minifridges, free Wi-Fi access and 47-inch flat-screen TVs equipped with an Internet connection that allows you to sign in to your Netflix or Hulu account. Some guests enjoyed the minimalist, chic design of the accommodations, while others said the laminate flooring and lack of any rugs or carpeting made the rooms feel cold and industrial. Travelers were more complimentary of the hotel's location near Bourbon Street and several of the Crescent City's top eateries and rollicking bars. But if you want to stick near the hotel, you can grab tapas and handcrafted cocktails at the AC Lounge. For larger meals, you'll have to venture off the property; the AC Kitchen only offers breakfast. If you need to work off all the beignets and po'boys, take advantage of the hotel's on-site fitness center. Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and redeem points and perks for choosing to stay here.
