ABOUT TRAVELING TO NEW ORLEANS
 
 
New Orleans Marriott

The NEW ORLEANS MARRIOTT is the headquarters hotel of MS&T '04. All conference activities will take place in this complex. Special conference rates at significantly reduced fees have been contracted by the sponsoring society for conference 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.

New 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.
