We finished the night of at Café du Monde and Lynn stuffed some more food down me. Beignets which are similar to what we would call 'proper’ fresh homemade donuts down under. I think I had to roll myself back to the hotel as I had eaten so much!
After our haunted tour I was almost too paranoid to go to the loo alone, but ...
... the stifling heat in the main part of the complex. After ˝ hour or so checking out the ruins and temples on the cliff top we’d completely forgotten about the temperature difference until we finally turned inward to view the sights in the in the main part of the complex, as we descended down to the site (there isn’t a big difference in height it’s just sufficient to negate the effects of the ...
... stories she told touched my heart and at one point I had to do everything in my power to refrain from breaking down in heartwrenching sobs! I'd recommend going here to anyone that visits New Orleans.
The drive back to the French Quarter was also very interesting with our guide never stopping to draw breath while he filled our minds and imaginations with all manner of tidbits of information. He'd start one story then say... oh, ...
We stayed in an RV park close to the French Quarter. We went to Cafe Du Monde for birthday beignets: John turned 40. We heard a concert at the Mint, shopped at the French Market and visited the New Orleans Jazz NHP, Jean Lafitte NP, and two of our favorite bookstores: Faulkner House Books and Beckham's Bookshop. We celebrated New Years Eve at a lovely restaurant called the Old Coffee Pot, and it is old--it opened in ...
... just have to figure out where to go next. The weather looks good for tomorrow and even to Tuesday but then it turns to t-storms.
Lots of riders on the roads now. Met a retired biking couple at the MS Welcome Center who'd just been to FL and were on their way back to New Orleans. It's not boring on a solo trip, it's often easier to chat with people, because you're not insulated by buddies.

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!!!
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.
