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.

... affected by the flooding from Katrina. More about that later. On the swamp tour we did not get to see any gators because they be hibernating and didn't want to come out for the bit of sun we had. We did see a raccoon, several different swamp birds, turtles and lots of wild pigs. All the animals are so used to the tour boats who bring marshmallows (of all things) to feed them. One of the pigs jumps onto the side of the boat and begs for marshmallows. I have a video of ...
... beautiful. They had a neat music room with all sorts of civil war era musical instruments. They guide let me play a bit. After wandering around a bit I went on down the road to Oak Alley Plantation.

Our po'boy had ham, roast beef, debris and coleslaw on it. Debris for those of you not familiar with the term down here, is the drippings of meat left in the gravy after ...
... our tent that we were oblivious to! After three days of hiking, camp fires and spectacular views we headed to Durango in Colorado, we had no real schedule just that we would take the scenic route and enjoy it. We planned on hiking in the Rockies for a couple of days but when we arrived, it was, the middle of the rainy season so we took short walks in the morning before the afternoon rains set in and snuggled in our tent. We were in bear country again and still had ...

The next day we went to the National World War II Museum (which surprisingly is in NOLA) and saw the 4D Experience "Beyond All ...
