“Quiet, Elegant Hotel Close to the Quarter”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights - French Quarter Fest on the weekend with business in town for me on Friday and Monday. Ala carte services are very pricey, but that can be expected in a hotel like this ($40 a night parking and $12 for 2 ice teas with tip). The hotel entrance is tucked away and seems "hidden" amid this very active area. The decor was not quite our style but can be appreciated for what the hotel is trying to be - a reminder of European luxury hotels.

This is a beautiful, sophisticated hotel that offers the New Orleans traveler a respite from the bustle of the French Quarter but it's only 2 blocks away. The decor is grand and English, with large oil paintings, a high tea and other fine details, but it's not stuffy. There is attention to comfort throughout. We had delicious breakfasts, and pre-dinner drinks in the wood paneled club bar while a live jazz trio played (horns and all)...very swanky and fun.This hotel deserves 5 stars but I'd take a coule of points off for their maid service. One day they didn't clean our room or our friends room (both corner suites). We were gone all day and late in the afternoon had to call to have them cleaned. Ours got cleaned that evening but our friends still didn't and at midnight they had to request fresh towels. A hotel of this caliber should rectifiy this.

Room Tip: We booked a deluxe king but were upgraded to a 12th floor corner king suite. It was devine. Felt lik...

Booked this hotel for my father in law and his wife.They are from Vancouver and very Canadian British in taste (my father in law is a major) in the royal canadian army).They loved this hotel! The rooms are suites (decorated in British style) with balconies.They like their space and they had plenty of it.The two of them live in a 6000 square foot home(by themselves) and they felt at home here.Spent many hours visiting them here.We felt like family.

Stayed 3 nights as a couple for a business enagement in N.O. and would definitely come back! The room was spacious with a separate sitting area and french doors that opened into a large bedroom. Marble bathroom, high thread-count sheets, turn-down service: all of my favorites.
The location is superb and the accomodations were luxurious, but it wasn't overdone and pretentious. This could have been a stuffy hotel because of the upscale nature, replete with pink roses and french influence decor, but the service was warm and down-home southern politeness to the core. Jason who brought me breakfast was the face of New Orleans itself: polite, well versed in etiquette but in true southern style had a personality and a smile that brought sunshine to my day. Food was flavorful and consistent. We attended a dinner party with a larger crowd that was same quality as my individually prepared meal. Concierge was great and staff bent over backwards to get us a taxi during French Quarter Fest when the streets were closed. This was a pleasant surprise and was well worth the money! Hotel and staff created a sanctuary for us during our stay!

I lived in NO before, and we used to go to dinner at the Grill Room. This time, we came back and stayed at Windsor Court. What a great hotel! It is not a brand new hotel, but they scrubbed and kept it up so well, and it doesn't show age. The rooms are mostly suites, and it had enough room to spread around for family of four. Double sink with a makeup area was an added bonus for me and my daughter. We received upgrade to the club level with American Express, and it was a treat to go there every morning and afternoon. My kids loved this experience as much as the city itself. The service was impeccable. We called for the car and came down to the lobby, and the car was already there with attendants ready to hand us bottles of water. I noticed that there is "another" 5 star hotel in New Orleans now, but I am staying at Windsor Court again next time we come around.

Room Tip: Club level is definitely worth it. Beautiful food presentation all day, and generous wine service.

Went there to celebrate a special birthday. The hotel made it special in everyway. Had a bottle of champagne from the manager. Received a personalized card at dinner. Everywhere we went, it was acknowledged. The service was fabulous. The rooms were serviced 2X/day and they did a great job. Had Keurig coffee maker in the room with tea/honey/coffee. I loved everything about this hotel. It made my birthday very special. Expensive-but worth the pampering.

Room Tip: We had a room with 2 queen beds in the center. Loved it. It was quiet and a decent view. I am sure a...

The Windsor Court is a top notch hotel. The rooms are very roomy, comfortable, decorated wonderfully and are very quiet. All of the staff was great from the doorman, concierge, front desk and housekeeping. The lobby is exquisite! We had wonderful drinks at the Polo Lounge. The bar tender and wait staff were knowledgeable and accommodating. It is a hotel where you can truly relax. The location is on a quiet street yet within walking distance to everything. We hated to leave! It was one of the finest hotel experiences we have ever encountered!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a water view. The views of the Mississippi and area are wonderful.
