Days 268 - 270: USA -Soulful Sounds of New Orleans

... and his friend Will. Of course the game got the crowd's attention but so did the adverts and the halftime show. This year's game was one sided, so unless you were a Seattle Seahawks's fan, then the highlight was Bruno Mars's epic halftime performance. In this bar, people applauded and cheered, as did they to some of the adverts. In the days following, these Super Bowl ads, costing $133,333.33 per second or $4 million per 30-seconds, are highly analysed. The Coke ad ...

Days 46 - 49 getting out of Costa Rica

A travel blog entry by ai_firestone

... a small twin room with a set of bunks, at the very back of the complex, that was around the size of Harry Potters bedroom under the stairs. To further improve our mood, when we got to the room, we discovered that even the maid forgets this room- with the trash can over flowing and no linen. Needless to say, we demanded a new room first thing in the morning. We then spent a day in San Jose, relaxing and walking around the city a little before ...

Day 5. Scooby Doo where are you?

A travel blog entry by flightof3kiwis


We are up bright and early to a hot and muggy morning. I'm hoping to see Scooby Doo in the swamps! Cajun Swamp Tour bus picks us up at the hotel, and with a very informative driver with a fast paced southern drawl, we head off around town scooping up other passengers coming on the trip also. He has his stories and information down to pat, but is also funny, AND gives us the cue of when to laugh ...

... architecture, and walking on the banks of the Mississippi River. In a brewery near Jackson's Square we treated ourselves to a Poboy sandwich, a local favourite in New Orleans.
On our way out of town the next day we drove through the Garden District where the streets were lined with giant overhanging Oak Trees and plantationesque ...

"Marooned" in New Orleans

A travel blog entry by patry

This is a top pick!

... captain grew up swimming in the bayou, hunting alligators, and eating frogs, turtles, and birds, proudly announcing the only bird in the bayou he's never eaten is the Blue Heron. We will say he was very knowledgeable about the area and a great guy. We were the only ones doing the morning tour (traveling in the off season has been wonderful!) so we had the captain to ourselves. We ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews W New Orleans

    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!!!

    Pseudo intellectual


    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.
