I am having an afro with all this curly weather. No kidding the moisture has curls springing out everywhere.

Yesterday's flood warning was over at five but it is raining again. It poured all night long and our fancy pump in the corner is overflowing. We call it our hot tub cause it is in the vicinity of the pool. We were laying bets on when it would overflow but it really never did it just dropped from a ...

... but the soul, as NO is one of the most obese cities in USA. I have to say I seem to have developed a right belly on me in the past month... On our last day, as we waited for the bus back to the campground they were playing the panpipes on the steamboat. So we danced and played with Eva who had behaved impeccably throughout 8 hours of sightseeing that day. When we got on the bus, the ever lovely elderly of USA, commented on how lovely she was, how well behaved and ...

On the road to N'awlins

... a lot like turkey…until it cools down a bit then it goes canny chewy haha. Lunch was lovely, and with full bellies we headed back onto the road and towards New Orleans. The traffic was absolutely hellish as we pulled into the metropolis that is Nawlins, especially as it was nearing rush hour. Laura did so well in navigating the maze-like roads, and people were driving like absolute nutcases, so I was very impressed with how she handled it; this is the ...

... You can sound them out, but they translate to "I love you," "You be a good boy," "What's happening?," "Hi good morning" (may be used any time of day though), "What are you doing?," and "I missed you." Our days are much quieter now and I miss talking to him among so many other things. I would tell him I missed him whether I was gone for five minutes or five hours, and it was true. Everything just seemed better and ...

... us colorful insights into the history of New Orleans as the stories of the cemetery and those interned here were brought to life with his stories. The cemetery, founded in 1789, consists of raised vaults of different many different shapes, usually as a final resting place for multiple people as family generations or a social society use the vault over and over. The cemetery remains active ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel New Orleans Downtown

    Stayed in the Suite - Excellent


    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


    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 !!!


    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


    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...



    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


    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...


    ...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


    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 !!!


    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


    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.
