    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel New Orleans Downtown

    Stayed in the Suite - Excellent

    from

    Great room, great service, great location. Have to try a sandwich at "Mother's" next door. I recommend the Ferdi special.

    Wonderful Weekend at the W

    from

    Just returned home from a Bachelorette Party weekend stay at the W. The rooms were great, the bed great, the service absolutely charming, and the atmosphere fabulous. Convenient to shopping and nightlife, without being too caught up in the chaos. I reccommend it highly.

    We loved the W !!!

    from

    We stayed at the W and loved the hotel!!! Everything in the room was first class and the bed was "out of this world" comfortable. Everyone was so polite and friendly ... Todd at the front door gave us excellent advice on where to eat and go and Clara at the lobby coffee bar in the morning was just so friendly and efficient and had the most wonderful "warm" personality. We loved the candles lighting the lobby at night. We were pleased with the convenient location on Podyras Street which was within walking distance to most places we went to. We will definitely stay at the W on our next trip!!!

    Pseudo intellectual

    from

    Background runway "music" annoying....Room maintenance poor....Would be a better hotel with adult supervision....Close to our regional office....We would return on someone else's nickel...

    Heaven!

    from

    When my partner and I feel we need a get a way a weekend at the W provides a bit of heaven ZOE's, Wrisky Blue and the Beds.

    Pleasant but please turn down the music

    from

    A good location--as close as you want to get to the French Quarter--and bright pleasant smallish rooms. Halls are dark which I found offputting. Nice helpful staff. Nice bed. Nice toiletries.

    If you rate hotels by their bars...

    from

    ...I would say that the Whiskey Blue bar pretty much tanks the rating of an otherwise fine hotel. We were a party of 10, and in a free-spending mood. One of us wanted to rearrange some of the seating because of his lower back pain making it impossible to sit in the low stools provided at this table, which was the only one large enough for all of us to sit together. We were then admonished by the bar manager that this was absolutely prohibited, and would create a nuisance to the other customers. This was hardly plausible, being a Sunday night, and we were almost the only people there. So we finished our round and quicky departed for the French quarter to re-start a cocktail hour that had been rudely derailed.

    Snooty, but nice

    from

    Nice hotel - great beds. But the halls were a bit dark. FOlks were helpful with the exception of checking in - they have a lot of late check outs - which is very problematic. THe rooms were not ready at 4pm when we checked in and we were told to go walk around for 2 hours after sitting on an airplane for 2 1/2 hours. For such a fru fru hotel they could have made some accomodations and had a room ready!!! But I'd probably stay there again - great beds and they made sure the rooms were clear.

    Best Nights Sleep Ever In A Hotel !!!

    from

    The W has the most wonderful beds! My husband and I spent two nights in September 2002. The W is very different than other hotels we have stayed in, but the staff is very friendly and we really enjoyed our stay. The service is great! The most wonderful bed, and the cookies and milk from room service for a late night snack was more than great! The room has everything you need to be comfortable, including deluxe robes and linens. The view of the Mississippi River was a treat. My husband and I both enjoyed this hotel. If you don't find the super comtempary style too distracting, this is a great place to lay your head down! We will stay here on our next trip to New Orleans.

    The W Hotel - Polydras St

    from

    If you are looking for a great hotel with a great staff, stay a the W Hotel. This hotel is very modernized. It has a great pool, fitness center (on the sixth floor), and a nice restaurant. It is located across the street from Harrah's Casino. It is in walking distance to the Aquarium and Bourbon street. The rooms are very nice - featherbeds and goose down pillows nice. I really liked this hotel.

    ... of New Orleans during the War of Independence. In this square was the oldest church in America - the cathedral of St Louis. As we entered the beautiful streets, our fears about Southern attitudes were immediately allayed. Directly left of our hotel's street was St. Ann's street and the first thing we saw, dangling from the railings of the balconies above the shops, bars and restaurants were huge rainbow flags billowing in the wind. The "one way" street sign had ...

    ... now loitered the cross-sections as it became deeper into the night. Tourists stopped to take pictures of the work horses, many with Hurricane and Grenade souvenir cups in hand. There were even quite a few stumbling out of the strip taking selfies with the police. As the homeless man previously warned, “Anything goes.”

    Finding our way to the hotel in the dark was a little more difficult than what we had formerly encountered. Getting lost in ...

    ... was really chaotic and police were directing traffic (badly) at most of the traffic lights on the way into town. Our lady bus driver was quite disparaging of the arrangements.
    Eventually we got back to Natchez Dock around 8:30pm. As it was late we decided to eat straight away and went to the Gumbo Pot. I had BBQ prawns and Ian had fried catfish and shrimp with wasabi tomato sauce and 2 turbo dog beers. Pretty good birthday fare eh?
    Tomorrow we plan to take the day ...

    ... wedding to do so, we saw two. At the end of the day the brides & grooms from about eight weddings travelled down the streets in horse drawn carriages. Tasted delicious pralines from the French marketplace. Watched a group of entertaining street performers break dancing. They were insanely talented & funny. They involved the crowd & I got a couple of funny videos. Near the end of their act they spread their message which ...
