“Perfect Destination Hotel for Mardi Gras....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2011

My husband and took our two boys ages 4 and 11 to stay at the Windsor Court for Mardi Gras this year. The service was impeccable and although it is a swank hotel, they were great with the kids. The price couldn't be beat and the room size was excellent, allowing us all enough room to have the necissary space. There were a number of parades that passed right in front of the hotel and the crowd on the parade route was very family oriented. It allowed for the safety, secuirty and privacy that we weren't sure we would find in a downtown New Orleans hotel. It was a great family trip and we will be booking again for next year.

Dressed in ripped jeans and t-shirts, we certainly didn't look like the usual Windsor Court guest. But in true southern hospitality, we were welcomed into this old-world (and ginormous) hotel.

While our suite was spacious with beautiful views of the city, we couldn't help but chuckle at the few things that felt off. First, there was the kitchen from the 70s that someone would bang on our door every morning to come check in on (something about the mini bar). Then there was the TV from the early 90s that sat at the end of our bed, rising up and down with a touch of a button. And the bathroom was simply outdated with chipped porcelain and weak faucets.

That being said, the bed was absolutely heavenly. And I wish I had more time at the gorgeous pool. But the central location lent itself to much time outside the room-- as we were just steps from downtown and a few blocks from the French Quarter.

I'd definitely come back, especially after they upgrade.

This was not my first choice. Most of my party was at another hotel but I am delighted that that one was sold out. I stayed on a "Club" floor and it was a pleasure. The staff, service, comfort and amenities were outstanding. The only criticism would be that the sliders to the deck and closets along ith a noisy AC/Heat unit all obviously needed to be replaced. I travel to New Orleans often and will without doubt stay here again.

Beautiful, elegant, tasteful hotel. Great quiet location within 5 min walk to French Quarter. The service is impeccable and all staff really make you feel special. The room was spacious, nice amenities and bathroom and the King size bed was extremely comfortable. I slept very well which I often do not do in a hotel. We had drinks and bar menu one evening which was very good. River and pool view from the balcony was enjoyable...it was nice to open the sliding door in March! As for any reviews stating that the hotel or furniture is shabby...I think these guests would prefer a brand new property with "IKEA" style furnishings. This hotel is old world elegant and we would not hesitate to stay there again.

We were in town for a family trip as well as some siness. The room was huge and well appointed with a small kitchen that was useful as far as the coffee maker. Beds were very comfortable and after 2 calls tohous keeping finally got 2 pillows that were a little firmer than what was there at first. Loved the twice daily turn down service. My main com paint was the concierge staff. Twice they gave us the wrong info after I had asked them to double check some things that ended up wasting us a lot of time and cost us $$ until a hawk eyed clerk at the swamp tour theory had booked for us caught the mistake. We are seasoned travelers and I always try to use the concierge when I can. This time I would have been better off just doing everything myself. Overall we loved the pool, work out facilities (absolutely convenient, gorgeous, clean) and the amenities. Hotel is off the beaten path but still very close to the French quarter so we weren't bothered by a lot of noise. The hotel can seem a little stuffy and this is intensified by the staff at check in and as stated, the concierges. Still, very awesome hotel experience, but now that I have stayed here and "gotten it out of my system" I don't think we'll be returning.there are so many fine hotels here that for the $$ I'd rather try something else.

Everyone raved about Windsor Court, and I wanted to like it more than I did. There were many positive aspects of our stay there. The people at the front desk were efficient and friendly, and the concierge service was great. The courtyard and lobby were attractive, with lots of fresh flowers adorning each.
The location was great, within easy walking distance to the French Quarter and many good restaurants in the Warehouse district.

We chose a full suite because three adults were sharing a room. The room was spacious, and we loved looking out at the river from our balcony on the 16th floor. The person in the living room slept on a rollaway bed and had his own entrance to a shared bathroom. Too bad I woke up stiff each morning. The sheets were silken, but the bed didn't support my back.

The room needed improvement. There were ugly chips in the porcelain sink. The sofa in the living area needed better cushions. The toilet sometimes kept running; we'd have to return to jostle the handle. The floor in the kitchenette was sticky. Housekeepers did not always clean the coffee cups we left in the sink, and they didn't replace the creamer and sugar when they ran out. We contacted the front desk twice about items such as facial tissue and note paper that needed to be refilled. Once we got an immediate response, but the second time we had to call again to get the service we requested.

If the price had been more moderate, I wouldn't gripe about some of the things I mentioned. But at $350 per night on a weekend, I expected more.

After now reading the previous reviews, which ironically, I had not done prior to my visit, there is nothing more to add. This trip exceeded our expectations. From the moment you are greeted from your cab to the personal, prompt, efficient check-in, to the sigh of relaxation upon entering your suite.... It was a wonderful visit. The magnificent flowers in the lobby, the deliciously comfortable bedding, invigorating rainshower head, great sazaracs (worlds better than Galatoire's!) at the Polo Lounge.... Just terrific. Thank you Windsor Court for holding on to that old-world graciousness. Look forward to returning again.
