Renovated warehouse lends historic feel to modern New Orleans hotel
The Wyndham Riverfront New Orleans recently underwent a $9 million renovation. The converted rice mill now shows off original brickwork and plantation shutters. The modern hotel's fine art photographs of New Orleans in guest rooms and public spaces capture the past and present theme. The Wyndham Riverfront is situated in the old warehouse district and convenient to Mississippi river attractions and the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. The hotel offers amenities for business and pleasure.
Highlights
  • Historic look and feel of converted rice mill space
  • Convenient to Ernest N. Morial Convention Center

Excellent Location, friendly desk staff

Stayed during Mardi Gras, and considering it was such a busy time in the city, the hotel and it's staff certainly made it feel that it was all business as usual.

There is a amazing place to eat about 5-6 blocks to the south called conchon. Its fairly expensive, (about 40 a person) but it is worth it.

Wyndham New Orleans

Great hotel stay. Staff was extremely helpful with information. Great location. Just across the street from the Riverwalk (shopping, food). A block away from Harrah's casino. Within walking distance of the French Quarter (Bourbon St). With a noon checkout time you don't feel rushed.A wonderful experience.

There are quite a few places to eat and drink in the area. Take advantage of the variety and get out and enjoy. The more familiar places come a definitely more costly price tag, so don't be afraid to try others.

Great hotel especially for the price

The bartnender at the hotel restaurant 7, was rude, unfriendly and unwelcoming. Would go anywhere else in the city but there for food and drinks. Outside of him, everyone else at the hotel was friendly, especially the Bellmen.

Hotel-GREAT, Valet Parking Carjacking

Room was small, clean and comfortable, but need to have (2) Queens instead of twins. Parking was a Nightmare. Cost for 2 days $78.00 Hotel valet off premises parking. The valet pulled in with our car and then took off. Told front desk that our vehicle was not for their personal use. took awhile before we ever saw our vehicle again. No one at the front desk on third shift. New Orleans..just one day here is enough, unless you're an alcoholic.

You do not need a car in New Orleans. One day is enough time to see what it has to offer.

Good value and location

We just returned from spending New Year's in New Orleans. The hotel is in a good location... about a 15 minute walk from the French Quarter... and right across the street from the River Walk. Be prepared for some exercise! The service was good... and when the hotel ran out of coffee packets for our room, they compensated by having complimentary coffee in the lounge. The premises were very clean, the staff friendly and knowledgeable. My only real complaint was the location not far from a band stand that played terrible heavy rock most of the day and into the evening. It wasn't very conducive to an afternoon nap! I would stay there again.

Mulatte's creole restaurant is just down the block from the hotel. If you want good cajun cooking try it!
