Just finished up an enjoyable 4 night stay at the W French Quarter. Not the typical W hotel since this is an older property that's been given the W makeover. More of a botique hotel with some character and charm. I booked this stay through Amex FHR and though I was told at check in I was receiving a room upgrade due to FHR and elite status, I'm fairly certain I was given what I was booked (which was fine). The service and staff were fantastic, which I've come to expect from W hotels, and the adjoining Sobou restaurant and bar were excellent. I didn't experience any if the noise issues other travelers have mentioned, though I did notice some people frustrated by some trimming and construction that appears to be taking place near the pool. The only reason this was not a 5 star rating is the odd bathroom in the room... the door and wall are translucent and you can basically see what's going on inside... forget about any bathroom privacy. Additionally, if anyone enters the bathroom at night, the light shining through illuminates the entire room through the glass disrupting sleep for you traveling companion. All in all we had a great stay, but be wary of the bathroom situation!
