Intimate contemporary hotel with a boutique flavor
 

The W New Orleans French Quarter hotel sits in the center of the action in the New Orleans entertainment district. Tucked away, a serene inner courtyard lies at its heart. Here guests can escape the excitement of the French Quarter and enjoy delicious New Orleans cuisine at the on-site restaurant, SoBou, where chandeliers vie with decorative angels for attention. The W New Orleans French Quarter hotel offers the personal service guests expect from a smaller hotel. It is big enough to meet all their accommodation needs but small enough to care.

3 Reasons To Stay:

  • Located next to historic Jackson Square and close to all the New Orleans attractions
  • European style courtyard and elegant outdoor living room with pretty fountain
  • Contemporary hotel with a cool vibe that blends seamlessly into its historic New Orleans setting

Great time. We were worried when we pulled up and didn't see any valet or assistance for 10 minutes (there was a Saints game on, guess they were preoccupied). But everything turned out great!

Great location, comfy room

I had read some bad reviews of this hotel and I disagree with them. This was a very comfortable hotel in a good location in the French Quarter. I loved the Bliss products in the bathroom and the beds were very comfortable. You are away from the crazy noise of Bourbon St but still on a very desirable street with many great shops and restaurants. I didn't find the front desk to be all that nice, but the valets were great. No concierge though. No fitness center. Almost $15/day for internet access.

The W French Quarter

This hotel is great location if you are looking to hang out in the quarter. One block off of Bourbon. Very nice and quaint. Windows that open up to the street. Very small hotel but accented very nicely. Fits in very well. There is no restaurant or bar in the hotel which is not a big deal since you are in the middle of the French Quarter.

nice place.. but

I left a suit jacket in the hotel closet. Called the hotel 4 different times, including just 3 hour after checkout and no one has yet to respond. Each call was met with some version of we'll look into it..... Not a bad hotel, but response to lost jacket was very poor. Room small.

Details

We were not informed that the hotel was undergoing renovations. Also, as we have a small child, we booked a king size bed. When we arrived, there were no kings available. Furthermore, there was no room service. Wish we would have know these details before we booked.

Fun weekend!

The W in the French Quarter is seconds from Bourbon Street and many attractions but is quiet and wasn't as touristy. The hotel attracts seasoned New Orleans visitors and has an adult vibe. Asides from a snooty waitress/bartender, we had a fantastic time! The staff was attentive and polite. We loved the Acura service- the hotel will drive you anywhere within a five mile radius within certain hours. The hotel staff gave us great recommendations for dinner and local gems around town.

Made it Better

Room was not ready at check in 3:00pm.. Saturday.. Room was very mediocre for a 5 star hotel, closet like feeling with elevator noise. Ask for interior rooms if staying weekends... e.i. weddings or other parties. However, staff did make changes to our accomodations and we left on a happier note.
