    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.

    ... the jazz came to us as a band turned up and performed in the street - they soon drew a huge crowd reducing traffic to a stand still as people danced around the street. It was a brilliant experience and a good introduction into jazz.

    Went home via Bourbon Street to experience it's 'night life'. It was crazy, much more so than during the day! It was extremely crowded, lots of very drunk and loud people, women dressed only in underwear trying to lure ...

We were taken through the house, into each of the rooms and told stories about the history of the plantation and the owners over the years. There were still many original objects in the house.

    The Oak Alley foundation was opened by the last owner to live in the house - Josephine Stewart and when she died the ...

    We did the best we could to function normally and “move on” (which I don’t think is ever really exected of anyone) after saying goodbye to G. There were a lot of times we did not want to do anything. Where it literally hurt to move our limbs. But we could not have asked for a better distraction than Mardi Gras festivities, our wonderful new friends, and our super sweet costumes. Amanda was kind enough to send us some of her awesome costumes: a ...
