attendees. To receive these rates, use the HOUSING
RESERVATION FORM for the New Orleans Marriott. For
your convenience and to help the meeting successfully meet the room
block commitments that it has made with the hotel (to keep conference
costs as low as possible when using a world-class facility), we
urge you to make your reservation with the NEW ORLEANS MARRIOTT.
Orleans the City
Step back in time and take a stroll in the French
Quarter, Jackson Square, visit the plantations, or take a swamp
tour. The architecture, cuisine, and ambiance of New Orleans are
unsurpassed. There are more great restaurants in this city than
there are hours of the day to eat. Two favorites are Cajun and Creole
cooking. When it comes to culture, New Orleans is a world all of
its own. This cosmopolitan community is a blend of French, Spanish,
Indian, Anglo and African heritages. Their influences are seen in
architecture throughout the city or can be explored at one of the
many museums. Some of the oldest treasures of New Orleans are discovered
in the French Quarter, a unique neighborhood of courtyard homes,
shops and restaurants, all as special as the people who live there.
Wandering cobblestone streets, wrought iron-laced balconies, street
performers and live jazz bands. You’ll also find unique art
galleries, accent shops and three shopping centers downtown, steps
away from the hotels.
