Four Points on Bourbon is awesome if you can get upgraded to balcony facing the street.

like

Le meridien or sheraton higher Up for parents

like

The W, 2 blocks off Bourbon - so its quiet at night, yet walking distance to everything in the French Quarter. Also they have a beautiful courtyard. Try to get upgraded to the rooms with a balcony

OP has basically gotten suggested every available brand 😂

like

Sheraton for the lounge, Meredien for the breakfast, or the Ritz since it’s 150$/night some weeks, Hilton convention center if they gym since it’s hands down godly with a tennis court and amazing gym

like

The Ritz or The Saint

The AC wasn’t terrible, very close to the French quarter. But generally would agree with le Meridien

How do you book a room for parents/other travelers? Don't they have to put a reservation under their names?

Just add them to resi after making it

Include them on your reservation and it works like a charm. Sometimes you have to call hotel and include them but it’s not a big deal

Ritz is great

I like the le meridien - recently renovated and slightly off so quieter at night vs french quarter

I'm a co-founder of a midwest travel tech startup focused on allowing you to plan travel faster, easier, cheaper . . better. We're running a little incentive/hack for booking your first trip through Tempore, this could either be in the form of flights, hotel, or rental car. Plus we have access to proprietary discounts and concierge support. The last 18+months have been extremely challenging as a travel startup, and would truly value the support/opportunity (no fees whatsoever). Link below!

Would be great if one could be portrait and the other landscape, or possible to switch back and forth. Anyone have any suggestions on monitor setups that you love?

I recently started at a larger software company as an AE. As I’m getting more into the process, I’m finding things odd. Like, cold calls and emails are metrics I’m judged on more than closed won business. I know that’s part of the job but it seems strange I’m judged on it so heavily. And, I seem to be the first real outside AE hire as everyone else seems to have been promoted up from SDR roles, including all of my direct management. I’m questioning if I made the right move. Stick it out or look?
