Wyndham Riverfront New Orleans

N'Awlens was amazing! Both nights we spent bar hopping, giant beers in hand, down Bourbon Street. Each bar we went into had drink specials (3 for 1!) and live bands playing jazz. Among the thousands of bars we went to our favourites were Reservation Hall, where they put on an unbelievable Jazz show, Razzoo Bar & Patio, where the band was …
... I must have left it on the bar when she asked me for I.D. Extremely lucky. Anyway, Felix and I got some food and then organised to meet Tash and Zee (Memphis and Nashville) for a drink. They had arrived that day. Was still pretty hungover and tired so just quickly caught up with them and then home to bed. The next day Felix had to go back to Miami so he was up early. I had a pretty low key day and ventured to the World War II Museum. It had some interesting displays but the whole ...
... and shared a chicken ad chips platter from a little bar and oh my god the chicken pieces were huge!!! We got bak at around 6pm then got ready and most of us went out to a few jazz bars for the evening, we didn't stay out long though as everyone was ...
The trip did not begin well. We received an email sometime before we left the house (at 3pm) saying that our 5:30pm flight was delayed until 7:15pm. Of course, we still need to be at the airport on-time, and we didn't want to hit rush hour traffic, so we left as originally planned. But the 7:15pm departure became later and later, as the bad weather in the mid-west kept first the plane then our crew from arriving. We finally left the gate after ...
We spent a restless night in Tallahassee. Just after midnight a monumental thunderstorm arrived and proceeded to shake us and the motor home with massive thunderclaps, Stark flashes of lightning and heavy rain which drummed for hours on the roof of the motor home. By morning it had almost blown out and as the day wore on the sun came out ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Wyndham Riverfront New Orleans
It was the first time I purchased a "Vacation Package" through Priceline, and I did not even think to look for reviews of this hotel. I saw that it was considered "3 stars" and that was enough for me.
My stay at the Wyndham Riverfront was disappointing. The lobby looks great, makes you think you are checking into a nice hotel. However, our room was a different story. The carpet was very dirty, the tile in the small bathroom needed to be replaced. We could only see out of one side of our 6th floor window because what appeared to be steam was covering the other half. It could not be wiped off from the inside. The ice machine was down all four nights. The staff was not courteous. We asked the concierge to schedule a taxi to pick us up the morning of our departure. No taxi had been scheduled. Fortunately we were able to call one and get to the airport on time. I could go one about the staff but I'm probably out of space. I will not stay again, nor will I recommend it to anyone.
Did not like anything about the place
Front desk workers were a joke. Our key did not work and had to be re-keyed. The room was dirty. Not vaccuumed in the 4 days we were there nor did it appear to be dusted. We were quite dissappointed and will not be back.
Stayed one night, December 12, 2003. We chose this hotel because of its downtown location and proximity to the cruise terminal...we left on a Caribbean cruise the next day. The hotel is in a very central location - right across the road from Riverwalk. We had a bit of a wait to check in, but we were early and it was not yet check in time. The front desk attendant had us sit in the beautiful lobby and the soft leather chairs were so comfortable that I didn't want to go to my room when it was ready! The room itself was a bit dated, with a few stains on the carpet - but it was very clean. The mattress and pillows were HEAVENLY. By far the most comfortable I've found at any hotel. All in all, this is a great hotel if you're looking for a convenient downtown hotel that won't break the bank.
This hotel is advertised to be a 4-star hotel. Our experience was, in this regard, disappointing.One of the big problems we encountered was there was NO PARKING provided by this hotel and we were not informed of their $25/per day 'valet parking' option until we checked in. When asked about the location and security we were told it's 'a few blocks away and it's secure' - no details about where they take your car and when pressed they admitted that there is actually no one watching the vehicles. We ended up visiting some of the other hotels within walking distance and found covered parking within a couple of blocks away for $8/day with a programmed card entry.Another disappointment was the cheap room. The wall paper was actually peeling off in a few places, no fridge, no ammenities you'd expect from a hotel of this caliber. Heck, we even had to ask for another cheap plastic trash can. The TV was a 12" model. and the view we had was of a concrete wall. Again, not what you'd expect from a '4-star' hotel. The continental breakfast was sparse, food went fast, was cold and wasn't replinished. All in all, we'd have to say the location was OK for walking to the riverfront but the hotel is not actually on the riverfront and has no view of the water.Our advice: shop around and avoid this one. You can do better.
Wyndham near the french quarter
we stayed at the wyndham and found it totally wonderful!! beautiful, clean rooms, nice people and walking distance to the french quarter and walking distance to the excursion steamship. walk across the street and you can go to harrah's casino. we had a wonderful time and the view is fabulous!
Very Classy Hotel
We had an excellent experience at this hotel. The service was great and the rooms were gorgeous. Not to mention that it was footsteps away from all of the family attraction sites!
Best deal in New Orleans
This hotel is not as big as some of the monsters around the riverfront area,but the location is great and the service and attitude was a pleasent surprise.Room was big.but bathroom was a little small for room size. Price was reasonable, however .Very responsive bell service.
Convienient to mall and riverfront streetcar. Don't hesitate to book.
Enjoyed staying at the Wyndham
Unusual arrangement with reception area on upper floor, but beautiful lobby, and a very nice room. Good location, near Harrah's and Aquarium of the Americas.
Loved the location
Excellent location as other reviews will testify. Front desk service was below average and our room on arrival was not ready at 5pm. This hotel does not seem to handle large parties unless they arrive after 6pm! With regard to attentiveness in the lobby and courtesy opening of main doors?? FORGET IT!!
