Easily my best experience in a W hotel thus far. I stayed for an extended weekend in September and it was easily one of the best weekend trips of my life. I used some suite upgrades to upgrade to the Mega Room, which was well appointed and certainly spacious. One particular touch that I couldn't get over was the record player with jazz music ready to go. The record had seen some better days, but it was an excellent touch.
The pool is 24 hours which is incredible. Soaking after a long night in New Orleans was exactly what I needed. We used the pool extensively through our stay, and the covered seating options were almost too comfortable, the waitstaff was very pleasant and eager to offer food and cocktail suggestions that didn't miss the mark. On a hungover Sunday, we lounged in the courtyard, covered by shade and a cool breeze while dozing off to a selection of music that could not have been more perfectly tailored to our tastes. I remarked that I am probably just a bit too similar to the exact folks this hotel chain caters themselves towards...
Other reviews here talk about the noise of the hotel. It is true, it can be rather noisy. I personally am rarely bothered by noise and it didn't detract whatsoever from my experience. This is New Orleans, the buildings are old, frankly I would not expect a ton of peace and quiet in the French Quarter. And on that note -- you can't beat this location.
