I chose this hotel due their pet policy. I was greeted by a smiling face at the garage. Quentin was friendly and very helpful with my car, luggage, and pets. Check-in did not go as smoothly. Check in is at 3 PM, I arrived at 4PM. I was told there was no clean room available. I reminded the reception desk... More

The W chain has its own style, but if you like the cooler and darker interior, more minimalistic approach - the W French Quarter is the right place to go. We had a fabulous room, facing the relaxing yard in the middle, which also holds a (small) pool. We had a balcony, which we love and need, because as Europeans... More

My husband and I chose this hotel through the conference list of hotels that offered "conference" specials. It was a bit cheaper from normal prices but still up there. We had room 420 that was a corner room with two windows. One looking over Chartres St. and the other Conti St. This helped having two windows so it didn't make... More

Stayed here during Mardi Gras weekend in 2012. The hotel is small, but very nice. The rooms are clean and really comfortable. Everything is just a short walk away. I really enjoyed staying at this hotel and would love to come back.

We recently stayed at The W on a trip to New Orleans for St. Patrick's Day. I was very excited for our stay here. The photos looked nice and the hotel seemed to have an overall good vibe. Unfortunatly there were numerous events during our stay that were less than satisfactory. We had an extremely late check in. When we... More

We enjoyed our stay here at the W, the location was within walking distance of most places. There was even a parade right in front of the hotel. The room was comfortable with nice touches. We stayed here with Starwood points and paid extra for the upgrade to a balcony. That was the only disappointment . The balcony is really... More

Being from Southern Louisiana I've stayed here on many occasions and each stay is well worth the money, be it high season or low season. The most positive part about the hotel is the location. It's convenient for both business and pleasure travel; while being in a location inside the quarter that is fairly quiet. As for W standards at... More

I've stayed here several times. I love the courtyard, and come here even when not staying at the hotel. As far as the accommodations go, the rooms are small and the building is old, so there is often something wrong, like toilets not working, sliding doors coming off the tracks. Nothing too bad, but annoying when you think you are... More
