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!!!
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.

... tips. We dd get a CD by the band as a remembrance of our times just sitting and listening to the Steamboat Willie band. I would like to note that if you have any strong objections to public drinking sometimes to excess you might want to stay away from Bourbon Street. On Saturday it was getting pretty wild by 10 pm no idea what it was like later. We saw at least on group chugging vodka or another clear liquor right on the street. It was quite the scene that I was glad to ...
... a monkey. No a monkey would have learned it by now. So we are sitting there staring at a bush. Jock has a rationale for everything. It doesn't have to make sense to anyone else just that he knows the right thing to do, at the right time. That decision sounds positive and through his own rhetoric it implies motion, movement, a direction, a choice being executed and a way to go. Unfortunately with Jock his first decision is not to make one. It's to think about things for ...
Happy that I have now found my local coffee shop, I start the day at Merchant and the lady remembers both me and what I want....that's great service. Always a good start to the day! We have decided to join a NO walking tour of the French Quarter and Cemetery this morning. Now whilst this sentence slips out easily, it is no small thing to say it as Paul is so averse to doing anything remotely touristy. I feel safer with the idea of being on an organised tour as we will be ...
... The coffee was very good too. I tried to convince Evan that we needed to go back there for breakfast before we left the next morning. He wasn't having it. We then walked the Mississippi River and caught up with a Segway tour group. We stood there and listened to the man talk about Jax's. It was once a brewery and now it is a shopping center with restaurants and a hotel on the upper levels. ...
... to observe a Sunday mass. It was quite interesting. Everybody knelt before the priest who was giving mass. There was bible readings, teachings, prayers and songs. It was actually quite beautiful. Americans are very religious, particularly in the south.
For the rest of today (late afternoon) Gus and I are hanging out at the hostel and chilling with others. We will probably have a few beers soon and then head to Frenchman st. This street has been recommended by ...
