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.

Room 1444, Hotel Monteleone, New Orleans
The streets were wet when I left the hotel, so it must have rained during the night. It's stopped now though still overcast, and a little cooler than the last couple of days. I walked down Toulouse Street to the Steamboat Natchez office and bought a ticket for the 11.30am cruise which cost $28.50 - $39.50 if you want to include lunch.

... but charming. The part I don’t care for is the toilet that runs constantly and the décor itself seems out dated. I would love to see a more modern twist on the room reflective of the great care that they took in the lobby. The room we are in (508) has a very tiny window in the alcove and lets little light into the room so it is quite dark and gloomy. I think the yellow/gold/olive tones in the room darken it even more. The bed is OK. Not soft but ...
... humid but not that bad. Go to check in and get told AC down - we can go to Hilton around the corner for the night if we wish as it won't be fixed until the next day. It is 27 degrees and about 80% humidity - no big deal for us - we elect to stay on as almost everyone else heading for the door. We have a very nice room overlooking Bourbon St but can't really see much of the action as we are 8 floors up so after a showers and a change into our summer gear (first time we have needed it) ...
... have easily just bent down and picked up the many that were lying on the ground around him. But I think he liked the attention, but was nervously questioning why he should follow their request. I never did see what his decision was. I found some food which was strangely difficult, a Po-boy. Now that I'd heard of their existence, Po-boys were seen everywhere. I ate and observed the street. After I was done I began the long walk back to my bed. I had some driving to do tomorrow. Florida ...

We walked back through the French Quarter towards Royal Street, passing the Lafitte Blacksmith Shop Bar, which is supposed to be the oldest bar in New Orleans, and the Cornstalk Hotel. Royal Street was great, as it was cordoned off for different street performers, such as magicians and music acts – including an amazing fiddle duo who we watched for ages. As we walked ...
