Girl's Getaway

Would not recommend Tue, Oct 4, 2011
The Wyndham is located in a very good spot for access to multiple sight-seeing areas. We stayed for 5 days and did not plan to rent a car, and the Wyndham's location helped make this possible. There are no real amenities in the hotel- (no pool, gym, continental breakfast, business area, etc.) so those were a little missed. The rooms were decent and comfortable, but definitely could use a serious upgrade. There are mismatching carpets, peeling wallpaper, and worn (if not broken) furniture in the rooms. The restaurant off the lobby is not very inviting and never busy. Also, the hotel provides wireless, but when linking up, the page says your room will be charged. We called the front desk and they just said to click okay, there is no charge. This was a little confusing and should have been posted for easier customer use. Overall, we had a fine stay, but will probably try something different next time.

Great value. Great location. Daily parking is a little high compared to other options in the area, but over all I was really happy with my stay.

Money saver

Park uptown in a neighborhood somewhere, and take the Streetcar on St. Charles Ave for $1.25 to the French Quarter. Cheaper than paying parking.

The hotel was great, good location, near to everything. Enjoyed the night life, the casino, and Bourbon Street. Due to the heavy rain, the nights could have been better, But, it was FUN. The shopping and dining was great.

Not worth a hundred plus bucks a night

Would not recommend Tue, Aug 16, 2011
Ther girls at ther lobby desk were friendly and accomadating however wer booked a room for a guarantee king bed non smoking room and instead got a room with two full size bedsnt that had sheets with holes in them. There was duct tape on the windows and the room smelled of smoke. The yin wouldn't drain when taking a shower and the t.v. was ancient. Very dissatisfied.

The Pros and Cons

Would recommend Mon, Jul 25, 2011
Pros: The location was very convenient to everything - Bourbon Street, the museums, the Riverwalk, the mall and Harrah's; the room was clean and the amenities were very nice; the staff was polite and accommodating; and the hotel was quiet, a cozy atmosphere for couples. Cons: Both the lobby and entrance were not inviting and needs upgrading. It also had an old, drafty smell. There needs to be an attendant outside (bellman) on duty at all times because it was a little creepy coming in at night. The fitness room needs a lot of improvement - none of the machines worked properly. There were many missing equipment parts and no free weights. The water pressure in the bathroom was low. The biggest negative was the fact that although we paid for the room in advance (online), the person at the front desk took our credit card number for incidentals but failed to inform us that there was going to be a $75 hold placed on the card for 72 or more hours. She specifically said that there would NOT be charges applied to the card if we did not make any additional hotel purchases (which we DID NOT). Its been 72 hours and the hold is still on my card.

Time saver

Everything is within a 3-5 block walking distance.

Essence Music Festival

Would recommend Wed, Jul 6, 2011
Overall I definitely enjoyed my stay at this hotel. Its smaller than the other hotels in the area which gave it a quieter and cozier feeling. It has valet parking, a professional staff, a restaurant/diner, and the room was clean and comfortable. I stayed at the Ambassador (which is walking distance away) the previous year and had a bad experience for the most part, not to mention I payed almost twice as much as what I payed to stay at the Whitney Wyndham.

Entertainment hint

The hotel is located just walking distance from the SuperDome, the convention center, a Harrahs casino, and both Canal and Bourbon streets, among many other places.

Great location to all

Would recommend Tue, Jun 28, 2011
We stayed at The Whitney for a conference at the convention center. The hotel was clean, comfortable and very friendly staff. The hotel was just blocks from everything. The room had all new bedding and an updated room. Loved it and would stay there again.

Dining

Short walk to all the finest restaurants and was in a very safe area.
