... I was able to get a couple of pics inside, but nothing spectacular.
Hanging from the ceiling was a F4U Corsair, a SBD Dauntless, a P51 Mustang, a TBD Avenger torpedo bomber and a B25 Mitchell, with a noseful of .50 cal machineguns. However, the pride of the collection is a B17 Flying Fortress.
The B17 "My gal Sal" is a particularly interesting aircraft. It was lost while ferrying from America to England, winding up on an ice flow near ...
On Tuesday we left Jackson, Mississippi, still unclear of the weather, because the cable was not working at the hotel - another tornado had hit southeast of Jackson on Monday night. By talking to hotel staff and locals we determined that it was safe to travel further south and west to Natchez.
While in Natchez we selected to tour Stanton Hall, the largest antebellum (that is, ...
... Street to the Krewe’s hotel HQ, the sky’s brightening again. Even this early on a wet Sunday morning there are plenty of people lining the route of our walking parade urging us to throw beads to them. We’re really starting to get a taste now of how all this works!
We find our costumes hanging on dress racks in one of the hotel ballrooms. Each rack labelled according to float number and our designated costumes labelled with our names. Jeff, Bill and ...

Sheldon (guide) told us about the boars they have trained. Unfortunately we didn't get to see them (although he called a number of times) but we learnt a lot about them. Boars wreak a lot of havoc on the swamp-land. They live in herds of up to 50, the females are able to conceive every quarter and may have anywhere from 5-12 babies in a litter. Three weeks after birth the process can begin all over again. They dig ...
Peggy and David are such lovely people and we hit it off straight away. They take us for a drive around the city and area, and in particular, out to ward 9 , which is the area that was terribly devastated by Hurricane Katrina.
Ward 9 is a very low lying area, in fact a good part of New Orleans is below sea level surrounded by The Gulf on one side ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Windsor Court Hotel New Orleans
Huge disappointment. I am a New Orleans native and returned for a meeting and had a one night stay at the Windsor Court. It's a good thing I had a good rate through my friend's company or I would have really been p.o.'d had I paid over $300/night for this room. The curtains were shabby and there were scuff marks on the wall, as well as peeling paint behind the drapes. The bed had a mattress that was only average. The bed linens were not what I expected from a luxury property. No down comforter, just a cheesey cotton spread. One pillow was feather or down, and the other was foam rubber. The carpet was dirty and the water pressure was terrible in the shower. The only thing that was good in the room was the nice smelling soap. Oh, and I had a small balcony that overlooked the casino and river. The glass doors were so dirty it was impossible to see out without opening them. Even the telephone smelled like someone's sweaty head. It was nasty! This is not the top rated hotel it once was. It needs serious updating and rehab. I would stay at the Ritz Carlton or Maison Orleans (loved it!) next time. Don't waste your money on the WCH.
Treated like royalty
Spoiled to death during our stay. The staff couldn't have been nicer. Our junior suite was lovely with every amenity you could wish for. The total atmosphere of elegance was worth the stay. The art collection displayed was magnificent. Would stay only there if returning to New Orleans.
We stayed for just one night at the Windsor Court at the end of the trip. Having stayed at the Ritz-Carlton on Canal St earlier in our vacation, which was absolutely fabulous, we found the Windsor to have a beautiful lobby and fantastic staff, but the room we had (which was a huge suite on the 21st floor, ie not shabby!) was disappointingly unspectacular, not particularly luxurious and had a few 'broken' items (such as shower head and hairdryer).
We wouldn't stay there again, the room just didn't compare to other top hotels we've stayed in.
We stayed in the hotel 20-26 December 2003 in an 800 sq.ft suite for which we paid a ridiculously low price, due to the time of the year?
Best hotel ever!
We have been to the Windsor Court Hotel three times and plan a stay there again in December. Nothing beats this wonderful posh little hotel. Location perfect, the Grill Room Restaurant may be the best restaurant in the U.S. Go there in December and experience the beautifully decorated Christmas tree in the lobby. The high tea service is superb. Could find no down side to this lovely place. Go!
We also live very close to N.O. and travel there often. For my birthday, we stayed two nights at the Windsor Court on recommendations from my co-workers. I can't tell you how much we enjoyed it! I was a little apprehensive because we were looking for a leisurely weekend and were not interested in "dressing" for dinner, paying exuberant prices or putting up with snooty staff. Don't believe everything you read, people! The room rate for a deluxe room we found on the Internet was reasonable. Upon check-in, housekeeping was just finishing up in our room so we waited at reception for maybe 8-10 min. Because of the short inconvenience, the hotel upgraded us to a full suite with a beautiful river view high above all the other buildings between us and the river.
My husband and I are a short distance from NO and are lucky enough to travel there very frequently. We have stayed at several luxury hotels over the years and the Windsor Court is by far, the most overrated hotel anywhere in NO!The experience from the minute we pulled into the hotel was very, very disappointing. Unattentive bell hops, valets, etc.
This was our first visit to New Orleans and a friend had recommended the Windsor Court and I'm really glad we followed their advise. From the minute we arrived the service could not have been better and everyone was so friendly and helpful.
The location of the hotel is perfect for exploring the French Quarter and the combination of New Orleans style and the old world European feel to the hotel makes it feel like an intimate hotel but with all the back up of a well run five star hotel.
A perfect stay for us and would recommend it highly.
Never again will stay at Windsor Court Hotel! Our room was filthy on
arrival and after it was "cleaned" we still had used soap, dirty
bathtub/shower, and other peoples litter scattered about the room. It
makes me wonder about the sheets.Our compensation for 2 hours of
inconvience of having our room cleaned X3 was a small box of
chocolates. Like Forest Gump says life is like a box of chocolates, you
just never know what your going to get.
