Marriott M Club Lounge is the Best Restaurant in New Orleans for Millennial Travelers


At Marriott Hotels and Resorts (and most Hilton, Sheraton, Omni, and other hotels), there is a hidden feature that most individuals have no idea about. These are the lounges located on the top floors and bottom floors of most full service hotels. These lounges usually provide patrons with complimentary breakfast, lunchtime snacks, nightlight snacks (or actual dinner), desserts, and drinks!

Also, if you are attending a blogging (or other) conference or working from your hotel, you can print for free, have free coffee without standing in line downstairs without the other coffee drinkers who are paying $6 per cup downstairs, and. It is a great networking opportunity for millennials, moms, professionals, and others who want to exchange business information with others!



Usually, the conference speakers are present in the lounges, the CEO and planners are in the lounges, and other busy professionals who just want to relax away from the busy nature of downstairs.

The Marriott M Club Lounge at the New Orleans Marriott is a hidden gem. I discovered it by mistake when I attempted to travel to my regular lounge upstairs in my favorite hotel in New Orieans and I was informed that there was a M Club Lounge downstairs. This was my first time visiting an M Club Lounge and it was amazing! You can order lunch and dinner, there is a sparking water machine, amazing spaces to work on....WORK, and the dinner is AMAZING!

This video focuses on breakfast time in the M Club Lounge in New Orleans. The hotel had great vegetarian options, amazing gluten free options, fresh fruit, bread pudding (yum), made to order omelets, and you actual get to select items from the actual New Orleans Marriott breakfast buffet! Yes, this includes beignets! Also, anyone can have made to order beignets in the lobby! Plus, there is a bonus video at the end of this video focused on "How Make Beignets" from a baker or chef at the New Orleans Marriott.

This is one of my favorite Marriott Hotels in the United States for Millennials!

Have a great week and plan for the weekend!

A Millennial Family's Review of a Room in the New Orleans Marriott


The New Orleans Marriott hotel is an exceptional location for families and working professionals who are traveling to New Orleans, Louisiana for a vacation or for a conference.

This hotel also has an "M Club Lounge" which is one of my FAVORITE Marriott Lounges in the world! Yes, I can say the world, because we visited our first Marriott Lounge outside of the United States this summer.


Even if you are not a Marriott Rewards member, this lounge is an incredible deal because it provides breakfast and dinner! Yum!

The rooms are amazing, because they offer spectacular views of the street below. It is a great way to see the city at a glance without actually having to leave your room.

This video offers a view of a typical room at the New Orleans Marriott.

Have a great week and plan for the weekend!

Free Activities for Hurricane Harvey Evacuees This Weekend

While entertainment can't fix the devastation that happened as a result of Hurricane Harvey, hopefully this list of free activities helps provide some joy in the midst of the tragedy.


Four Ways Busy Moms Can Prepare for Kindergarten

Four Ways Busy Moms Can Prepare for Kindergarten
Tomorrow, my kid hits another milestone - kindergarten! I've had such a hard time with this transition after my mother passed away this summer, because SHE WAS SUPPOSED TO HELP ME.

I know that she is with us during this process and we think of her everyday, but it is still a very lonely process. So, I had to organize everything with the help of the internet! We ordered the back pack (that will last us for years to come), the Bento Box, kindergarten friendly fashion products, and parent school supplies (because we need them too).

The North Face Look - After visiting Canada at the beginning of the summer, I purchased a North Face backpack from the new kindergartener! It was incredibly expensive, but we will continue to use it until her second grade year. I hope!



Lunchtime Toddler Style - We also purchased a Boon Bento Box lunch kit. It had everything that I wanted at a fraction of the bento box price. Usually, you have to purchase the bento box, the lunch kit, and the individual containers, but this bento box has everything you need AND it functions as a lunch kit!

We also had to purchase lunch items for our bento box, plastic bags, and several individually packaged items. Now, I plan to incorporate reusable bags as well!



Kindergarten Fashion - I had to plan a funeral and handle various forms of my "new life" (life after my mom passed) and I did not have a chance to shop. So, I decided to browse and purchase items from Amazon and Ebay to build my kindergartener's new wardrobe. More to come about this!


Don't Forget Your Parent Gear Too! - Parents need accessories for signing documents and documenting memories! This is YOUR kit! Get your Weekends Count Parent Supply Kit. No, just kidding, it is Writing Essentials Kit from Sharpie, Papermate, Expo, but it is extremely inexpensive and helpful!



This post contains affiliate links to help you build your shopping list and travel list for your family. We are passionate about the product and the experiences listed in this post, but we also wanted to provide easy links you can click to purchase products for your busy lifestyle.

Have a great school year!
