I mentioned yesterday my first experience with a beignet which is unique to NOLA. If you haven't had one, it's fried dough drenched in powdered sugar (photo below).
My visit to New Orleans ends tomorrow morning and I would probably return. I won't stay at the Marriott in the French Quarter. Very poor service orientation. It's hard to imagine that Ritz Carlton with the highest level of service orientation of any hotel chain is owned by Marriott. I have a suggestion for Bill Marriott, why don't you have the Marriott hotel managers attend the same Service Excellence program that WMHS attended conducted by the Ritz Carlton?
