This is the perfect hotel if you want to be in the French Quarter, but you don't want to be on Bourbon Street. I was in the Carriage House here with my son, who was 7 and we didn't want to leave! Kudos to the young man who assisted us at the front desk 12/20. He was absolutely wonderful in... More

We had a great room with a balcony overlooking conti street. I love the french doors and being from Chicago the sunny days in November were fabulous. It is a great location walking distance to several restaurants, shops, and the square. At first I was not a big fan that the rooms were not connected to the hotel lobby but... More

Great location in a French Quarter. great rooms, very comfy. Bathrooms a bit small if have family or multiple people trying to get ready. Fitness center decent and open 24 hours. SoBou restaurant and bar is in the hotel -- very good. Internet is expensive -- $15 day

We have stayed here at least four times in the last four years. Sadly, what was once a small well run 4 star hotel is tired and old with service that's not even close to a three star hotel. We traveled from New York and arrived late. I called earlier in the day the same day to let them know... More

Having stayed in many W Hotels world wide, it's without hesitation I can say the W New Orleans French Quarter really stands out as the cutest. It's almost hard to find, though it's smack in the middle of the French Quarter. I was a bit disappointed that my "Spectacular" room was extremely dark with a microscopic window facing a side...

First off let me start by saying I work in the Hospitality Industry - both in accounting and rooms inspection. My family and I stayed at The W for the Halloween weekend (2 days)- upon inspecting our room we saw a big dark stain on one of the mattresses (double room). We lifted the covers and the bed sheets to... More

I stayed here with a group of friends for a birthday. This is your typical W Hotel with a bit of New Orleans flair infused. Pretty standard as far as rooms are concerned and not too much else to say, good or bad. Service was standard of what you would expect at a W Hotel.

The W properties do not disappoint! Loved the W French Quarter on Chartres. Lovely property, great people (W people), fab room (Spectaculor upgrade worth it!)! We were in heaven....early checkin no problem. Sobou house restaurant is delicious! First Thursday of the month in the bar is "fight" night! Chef comes in with a bowl of "stuff". The bartender who crafts... More

I travel to New Orleans often and stayed for two nights recently on a business trip. The location of this W can't be beat - right in the heart of the french quarter without the rowdiness and noise. Very short walk to just about everything. Front desk staff (all of the staff actually) were super friendly and comped me free... More

The place has a cool vibe. I am a Platinum SPG business traveler. I prefer a room with space to work and stretch out after a long day. The room was small but comfortable and clean. It's certainly worth a night to check it out. I spoke with Ezra and Sebastian on numerous occasions and they were personal and made... More
