3 Reasons To Stay:

  • Located next to historic Jackson Square and close to all the New Orleans attractions

AMAZING! <3

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a weekend and it was AMAZING! It was definitely the best hotel I have ever stayed at. The room was amazing with a balcony and we absolutely loved the courtyard. The staff was also equally amazing.

A gem in the Quarter

Tucked away on Chartres, the W has the feel of a boutique hotel. Although the hotel was undergoing renovations to the lobby, bar and restaurant area, staying there was still enjoyable in large part due to their staff. Everyone from the front desk to the housekeeping personel were friendly and efficient. The room was typically W - colorful and comfortable and the bathroom was large with a great shower. The windows were able to be opened and overlooked the swimming pool (music could get a little loud and a lovely courtyard. Room service was brought in from a restaurant nearby and was delicious (but expensive). The hotel has a complimentary shuttle on a first come first serve basis which will take you anywhere within a five mile radius. I would definitely stay at the W French Quarter on my next trip to New Orleans.

Highly satisfied with the W Hotel, French Quarter! The room was very modern, and had a beautiful view overlooking the pool and other streets within the French Quarter. Staff was accomodating and helpful- and great atmosphere all around !! A++

Super cool, trendy stay

This hotel was perfect. My husband and I went for a birthday weekend and when the hotel staff found out, they sen is champagne and cheesecake! All the staff I spoke with we super helpful, knowledgable, and friendly (even the room service staff!) the location was far enough from bourbon that you didn't hear the noise, but close enough to everything great about the city that you aren't left out. Would recommend this to anyone!

Location location location

This hotel is in the nice part of the French Quarter. It's chic. The pool is more for lounging, too small to swim in. There is a bartender by the pool only Thurs- Sun. But other than that, the staff is hospitable and they remembered my name. And off course, the room was very clean.

Best place to stay in the Quarter

Location is fabulous. Close to everything you need to visit. You're in the heart of the French Quarter but far enough away from the Bourbon Street obnoxiousness. The beds are the most comfortable I've ever slept on at a hotel. Love the hotel's cool vibe.

Civility Surrounded by Debauchery

We enjoyed our room, the hotel and its location in the Quarter. The only two minuses of the hotel are the room service menu [if you use room service as much as we do]...its REALLY good just limited...and the lack of tubs, only showers [which is fine with us but could be a deterrent for others]...the hotel staff was warm and helpful and the remainder of the hotel was all typical "W" albeit a boutique version of "W". Great location to whatever you wish and retire to QUIET and restful oasis.
