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.

... on the amount of beignets and water we should have. In no less than 2 minutes time we had two plates stacked full of more or less fried dough covered with more white powder than Charlie Sheen’s coffee table. One bite in and Kamal’s entire shirt was covered in the delicious fairy dust and he was loving it. On the other hand we had dainty little Jack who ate them so slowly that he actually managed to stay dandruff free. Regardless of how quickly ...
... that she was hot but off-limits. After finally escaping the hospitality of Pete, they wandered toward Courtyard Brewery. At this point is is decided that they were not going to make it to Abita so a nano-brewery would be a good substitute. Just before finding Courtyard, Nate spotted a coffee roastery and shop called French Truck Coffee and talked his way into the roasting room. Speck and Tyler were soon distracted by the antique delivery trucks ...
... music Jake likes. To top it off, at the end of his set he sung some Monty Python and did a monologue, what more can you ask for!
Now this next part of the evening for me quickly goes downhill so I’m not going to bore and depress you all with it. Suffice to say that the combination of alcohol, little sleep and a month away from home all rather overtook me as we sat in a Hookah lounge. I had a bit of a meltdown, cried for about half an hour ...
... rickety journey. The garden district is the well to do area of New Orleans, so you can see examples of some pretty amazing colonial style homes. We walked through the area looking at some of the houses before passing a book store with a huge queue outside. We found out later that Anne Rice - author of Interview with a Vampire - was inside doing a book signing. It turns out that a lot of her books are set in the Crescent City (I can't say I've read any of them).
We then went ...
... gets us a place to stay. No receipts. No questions asked. What can you do? You go with it.....Because the choice down the road could be even worse.....My heart went out to both of them. But perhaps the little one will rise above it. She is running a campground at 5 after all...with manners and grace of some sort.
We cycled the Tammany Trace Rails to Trails and the trail was not very exciting, but they were celebrating their 20th anniversary so there ...
