The W Hotel is known for being luxurious and modern. At least, in the other W hotels I've visited that was the case. I will say that the service was excellent. Nearly every employee I passed spoke to me and the staff was friendly. I would give the staff 5 stars. However, my room was a bit ragged. The paint... More

The best thing about this hotel is the location. It is walking distance to a lot. This is the first W I stayed at that didn't really feel like a W. The rooms weren't that great. With a odd nook of wasted space near of window. The bed and pillows werent that comfortable. The hall sometimes had a musty old... More

Don't be put off by some of the lesser reviews - just know to expect a truly authentic experience in a trendy hotel in the heart of the French Quarter. The key is to let the team know what you're looking for -- and they will surprise and delight you. For example, I emailed the W Insider in advance, and... More

Beautiful hotel in the middle of the French quarter. We could walk to everything, near great restaurants and historic sites. Enjoyed the fun little bar when it was raining to hard to go out. Needs a business center to print airline tickets and other items.

Booked a double room for two couples 3 months ago. Got to hotel about 3:00pm, not late, not early, on time. The hotel informed us that they had overbooked and there was one room left, king bed, but nice patio view we could take. Unloaded car took all of our belongings to the room that was to sleep 4 adults.... More

In New Orleans, the W Hotel has a challenge merging the old, character-filled buildings with the W's modern look/vibe. In the common spaces (lobby, restaurant, courtyard), they marry the old with the new perfectly--just beautiful. In the rooms, the combo doesn't work quite as well, and it seems more grungy than modern: for example, the black paint on the old... More

I was back in New Orleans for the AUA conference at the convention center. This hotel was very conveniently located within the FQ, walking distance to everything, but not too close to the chaos on Bourbon St (2 blocks away). Rooms were quiet and comfortable (beds were awesome). The only downside I can mention were the small bathrooms with bad... More

We just traveled to the W for my first trip to New Orleans. My review is based on an average because what went well went extremely well and the things that didn't were not great at all. Positives: Elijah- The concierge who I didn't have a chance to meet in person was fantastic. He and I spoke before we arrived... More

Great location in the French Quarter. The accommodations are small but the staff makes up for any gaps in size. The hotel has a quaint court yard that is intimate, clean and quiet. We have stayed here several times and recommend.

Spent 1 night and had a rate of 151.00. Parking was 42.00 plus tax 5 dollars = 47.00 various other taxes made the rate 251.00. BTW if you have a car, there is no self park. The accommodations were nice such as work out room and courtyard. IF you want opulence and want to spend excess money, do it. If... More
