“Fabulous Time and Unexpected Upgrade!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

My partner and I planned an anniversary trip to stay at the Windsor Court. We found a great deal through their website and have enjoyed time there in the past for tea and brunch. Upon checking in, the receptionist asked about our reason for stay, and when we mentioned we were celebrating our anniversary, he unexpectedly offered a complimentary upgrade to a beautiful king suite and champagne vouchers for the Polo Club before dinner downtown. Kind and generous staff made our stay a delight.

Room Tip: Many of the rooms offer views of the city or river, we enjoyed a beautiful river-view on a high floo...

Nice location between Poydras and Canal Street. Many attractions and restaurants are within walking distance. We walked to Jackson Square in one direction and the WWII museum in the other.

We had a Junior suite on the 17th floor. Nice but too close to the elevator. If you are in one of the 5-6 rooms near or across from the elevator you will hear the 'ding ding' of the elevator every time it arrives on your floor. Very annoying.

Staff friendly. Service great. Showing a little wear but otherwise a great hotel. We would consider staying here again if we are assured a room AWAY from the elevator.

Room Tip: Away from the elevator as it chimes very loudly when it arrive on your floor.

We stayed here for a long weekend over Halloween. It was amazing. The hotel staff was professional, the room was amazing - our balcony and city view was awesome. The amenities were first class. This is the second time I've stayed at the Windsor Court, and it is definitely our go-to place to stay in New Orleans.

Room Tip: Try to get a balcony, and the city view is very nice on the upper floors.

This is truly an elegant hotel in NOLA. It is conveniently located to downtown, the French Quarter and a short drive to Uptown. We were upgraded to a very nice suite on the 17th floor overlooking the Mississippi River. The service was incredible. We enjoyed drinks before dinner and the breakfasts are incredible. We didn't get a chance to eat at the hotel's restaurant but it is supposed to be great. We'll check it out next time. If you are visiting NOLA with a car, this is a great hotel to stay at. The parking is a bit expensive, but the valet service is quick and the hotel is very easy to get in and out of to your destination by car. This will definitely be a go to hotel for us in NOLA.

This hotel is aptly named. Upon entry into the porte cochere, you find yourself in a charming little courtyard that immediately reminds you are in New Orleans. New Orleans evokes such a strong sense of place, more so than many other American cities and this hotel is a great reflection of its old world elegance, charm, and sense of hospitality. Traveled for business and stayed 2 nights as an independent traveler. I think it would be perfect for families. This hotel is located a few blocks away from Bourbon street so it is quiet, even though it is directly across the casino. I stayed in a suite which was spacious and charmingly appointed. Bathrooms are provided with Molton Brown bath amenities. The bathroom needs some updating to sinks and tubs, peeling paint in these 2 areas. Room service was great. Service was very hospitable. The public spaces are nicely done as well. Lots of hunting paintings, embroidered French fabrics, old world touches with nice antiques. Valet was efficient and fast. Even though they have some deferred maintenance issues- like the AC in rooms which is really noisy; and some of the window gaskets need replacing, you can hear and feel the wind coming through in certain places; I thought this was a great value.

Stayed in a suite nice attention to detail. Service is outstanding and lounges are posh. Toiletries are first rate and rooms are quiet on upper floors. Beds are comfortable and linens are quality. Don't forget to shut the drapes the sun will wake you up!

My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary this past weekend (Thurs-Sun). I have stayed in many hotels in the French Quarter and the CBD district. I have always wanted a reason to stay here, as every time I would walk past the hotel, (either going to the casino or casual strolls) it would always draw me in.

I will get to the point here and delve in later. The Windsor Court is going to be your most luxurious and enjoyable stay in N.O. period. Everything about the hotel is amicable, magnetic, and engaging. Having stayed in many hotels in the FQ and CBD, the Windsor is right off of Canal, next to the Double Tree, behind Harrah’s. We would walk all over to the FQ daily and have ZERO regrets. I may get some flame for this, but the Grill Room at the WC on Saturday night is incredible. Live jazz music, an incredible menu, fantastic cocktails and more; my wife and I enjoyed this more than Commander’s Palace. I literally cannot give enough praise for this Hotel as we literally will not have any other choice when returning to N.O. in the future.

Delving in here – and now having a great reason to stay there (anniversary), I booked the hotel. The courtyard entrance is just a sublime piece of nature that welcomes you in. We were greeted by Jeremy, at the front desk, and he very efficiently explained almost everything about the hotel and then upgraded my wife and me to a club level room suite. I initially was under the impression that the “club level perks” were somewhat of a gimmick. I could not have been more wrong. Any guest can opt-in to the Club Level perks for $100 a day. The sticker price may shock you, but it is definitely worth it. Our favorite waitress in the club level was Stephanie – she knew what drinks we were going to order as we stepped into the room! They have an extended continental breakfast until 11am, afternoon Tea and snacks, cocktails and hors d'oeuvres at 5pm and dessert cordials at 8pm. Mind you this is all free per your $100 ticket. It brings a very home-like feel and provides some great stress relief throughout the day. Also, Darlene would welcome us often as well and was extremely knowledgeable of all the goings-on in the city and gave us many great ideas and advice on where to go!

The rooms are very spacious (800 sf) and are outstandingly decorated. The Polo lounge is also a fantastic hangout if you are just looking to relax and listen to live music (away from the crowds). We could not have had a better anniversary and a huge thank you to Jeremy, Darlene, and Stephanie!

Room Tip: Splurge on the $100 club level access (at least once). You get a great view of the river and much m...
