The New Orleans Downtown Marriott at the Convention Center Encourages Travelers to Bring Their Appetite for Fun

Celebrating the New Orleans Wine & Food Experience, a New Package Embodies Good Taste

NEW ORLEANS, LA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/13/14 -- New Orleans knows how to throw a good party. From Mardi Gras, to Halloween, the Big Easy takes an over-the-top approach to every celebration. And the New Orleans Wine & Food Experience (May 21 to 24, 2014) is no exception. Hundreds of restaurants and wineries participate each year, and more than 10,000 epicureans arrive to taste the bounty for themselves. This year, however, the New Orleans Downtown Marriott at the Convention Center has put the icing on the proverbial cake by creating the best way to sip and taste one's way through the Festival: Its New Orleans Food and Wine Experience package.

As one of the more timely and tasty downtown New Orleans hotel deals, this package includes two tickets to the Wine & Food Experience's Grand Tasting for either Friday night or Saturday afternoon. The Grand Tasting is the event's biggest attraction with dozens of locally celebrated chefs and thousands of wines from around the world all united under the expansive roof of the Convention Center's Hall J. The 21-and-over event also incorporates live entertainment and local art exhibits to create the perfect backdrop to the culinary largesse.

Matching the spirit of the event's abundance is the lavish quality of the hotel's Downtown New Orleans suites. After the revelry of the Wine & Food Experience, guests can get some much-needed rest within the hotel's spacious, elegant rooms, which are outfitted with flat-screen televisions, wired and wireless Internet access and luxury bedding, among other things.

The hotel's amenities transcend the guest rooms, however, in what are some of the most gracious accommodations in Downtown New Orleans. A fitness center and rooftop pool serve as the perfect antidotes to overindulgence, while the hotel's on-site Starbucks and Wolfe's in the Warehouse restaurant, which serves modern Creole cuisine, are delicious ways to refuel before joining the party.

From the event's palatable pleasures, to the property's inviting hospitality, the Food and Wine Experience is easily one of the best hotel packages available in Downtown New Orleans. (And it's the only one to be developed around the New Orleans Wine & Food Experience.) Guests may secure the promotion, which is valid between May 23 and 24, 2014, by using the code ZJ9 when making reservations. Rates start at $289 per night, and more information is available at http://www.marriott.com/specials/mesOffer.mi?marrOfferId=618368&displayLink=true.

About the New Orleans Downtown Marriott at the Convention Center
Travelers in search of the quintessential New Orleans experience need look no further than the New Orleans Downtown Marriott at the Convention Center where they will find a picturesque riverfront location, elegant rooms and savory cuisine. Guests are just steps away from the French Quarter and the famed Bourbon Street, although they will just as likely want to stay in as go exploring. The hotel, after all, features flat-screen televisions, high-speed Internet access, safes and plush bathrobes in the more than 300 guest rooms and suites, while those looking for extra perks can opt for a room on the Concierge Level. More than 25,000 square feet of flexible event space complements the services of the nearby Convention Center, as does the hotel's business center. And whether guests spend the day working or playing (or a little of both), everyone can look forward to relishing the Creole cuisine at Wolfe's in the Warehouse. Much like the city itself, the hotel serves as a nexus of unparalleled food, comfort and entertainment.

The past few years have brought a sea change in the way applications are architected, developed, and consumed—increasing both the complexity of testing and the business impact of software failures. How can software testing professionals keep pace with modern application delivery, given the trends that impact both architectures (cloud, microservices, and APIs) and processes (DevOps, agile, and continuous delivery)? This is where continuous testing comes in. D
