Nestled across the street from the French Quarter on New Orleans’ bustling Canal Street, the JW Marriott New Orleans offers a luxurious retreat for planners seeking gracious service, tasteful furnishings, and spacious conference facilities for their groups. Each of the 494 guest rooms have been recently renovated and restyled with sophisticated decor and flat-screen televisions. Many offer amazing views of the French Quarter, Mississippi River, and downtown skyline.
Conference facilities epitomize grace, elegance, and sophistication. The 19,000 square feet of space breaks into 17 distinctive rooms on two floors. The showpiece Ile de France Ballroom is a natural for gala events, with crystal chandeliers, golden seats, and drape-framed windows that evoke a classic New Orleans ambience. State-of-the-art equipment, however, also keeps conferences contemporary. Behind the scenes, a seasoned team of event professionals stand by for expert assistance, with a dedicated contact devoted to every event.
When not in meetings, delegates can tour the French Quarter or Garden District or stay on-site to unwind at Serenity Spa or by the heated rooftop pool, work out at the health club, or enjoy live, authentic New Orleans music at the exclusive Irvin Mayfield’s I Club. The on-site Shula’s steak house elevates dining to a culinary event. The award-winning restaurant serves three meals a day, but merits special acclaim for dinner, which features Angus steaks and an extensive wine menu.
