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.

... it. Instead, we found the dead turtle that was slumped over a tree root. The stench coming off of that thing was so foul. The tour was about 2 hours and was one of the best things I did on my trip. Grub time! We left the swamp and went to the French Quarter for dinner. We went to some restaurant right next to where they were filming a scene for NCIS. Everyone was huddled up on the street watching them set up for the film. There wasn't any acting going on while we ...
... to the Warehouse/Arts District and down to the Riverwalk Marketplace, then back to the French Quarter and up and down Decatur Street to see the antique shops. Greg's Antiques has unique wares at reasonable prices. I found a couple of pieces I really liked, but did not want to pay to ship them back to Birmingham and there was no way I would try to take them back on the train. I would love ...
... slavery. She saw 3 brand marks on the forehead of a black slave that she really liked. She asked him what happened and he told her that her Grandma branded him 3 times because he tried to run away 3 times. That happened when she was 14 and eventually when she became the owner she sold it for next to nothing so that she had nothing to do with slavery. First we got a tour of the inside of the house and then the grounds.
The grounds had a ...

This place was used for filming some of the exterior scenes in The Originals, as well as a few movies.
Around 10am we arrived in New Orleans City Park (which our guide told us is the 6th largest in the US and was originally a sugarcane plantation) and parked ...
... brother when we were growing up. We used to play EB, Exuberant Badminton, in the yard; this self-created game required that we hit the birdie as high as possible each time, and see how many times we could hit it back and forth, even rescuing a shot after the birdie got caught but fell out of the trees. Our best game was well over 150 energetically high hits; after playing EB with Jim I could never quite restrain myself playing badminton ...
