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
Rooms

The Wyndham Riverfront New Orleans's 202 rooms and suites cover six floors including some in the old rice mill and others in a new space. All rooms include down comforters and 100 percent cotton bedding, a coffee maker with Wolfgang Puck coffee and Numi teas, desk, ergonomic chair, free high-speed Internet and 27-inch cable television. Baths are outfitted with Tru-Blue spa products. Exposed brick, plantation shutters, 16-foot ceilings and slate floors highlight the Historic King rooms. Presidential suites provide living space that is separated from the bedroom. Loft suites offer bedroom lofts above the living area.

Great singles trip

I have never been to New Orleans and had to rely on the internet for location and description. I was amazed at the location and service. I was able to get to everything on foot. The hotel was clean and the staff knows how to provide great customer service, especially the chalet. The provided breakfast was top notch. I will for sure stay here on my next trip to New Orleans. Great for singles and families. Great areas for running and site seeing. Thanks for the great stay!

Good Hotel, not 4 star quality, watch for parking

Missing 4 star feel, however, friendly staff, secure access to rooms, very close to transportation hub, One negative, parking costs a lot extra and is not included in stay, must Valet vehicle if staying, postive is that it is secure. Overall great hotel, just expected "more"

Excellent accomodations

We were very pleased with this hotel. We especialy liked how quiet it was at night, no clanging of elevator or ice machines, no doors slamming. The staff were extremely helpful and eager to please. The young woman who signed us in made our stay so much better by offering specific information on where to visit, where to avoid, the places that were more "adult" and not appropriate for kids. She was a wealth of knowledge and the other ladies at the desk were similarly helpful. Because of my lactose intolerance I was unable to eat the oatmeal they offered with breakfast. Each morning I called down to the restaurant "7" and they happily custom made me some without milk and the service was excellent The beds were most luxurious, with extra pillows and lush comforters. Our only disappointment was with the shower head in our room. It was weak but the bathroom was very roomy, beautifully appointed and very clean. The lobby and registration desk had beautiful orchids and there was always a fruit laden water dispenser for guests.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Buy the all day bus and trolley pass for cheap flat daily rate and you can go just about anywhere you want. Parking and driving would not be better than the public transit. It is very expensive to park anywhere in the city. Buses were very clean and trolley's were fun.

Excellent hotel staff, especiall 'Diane' (supervisor/manager of the hotel resturant called '7'! Diane made it a very pleasant experience. She is a true "treasure"! The Wyndham Riverfront in New Orleans is very fortunate to have her! The front desk staff was also excellent! Overall, a great experience!

Great Location Downtown

I really enjoyed my stay at the Riverfront Wyndham. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I had drinks in the bar and lunch in The "7" Restaurant. The bartenders were very friendly, Especially Diane. My only complaint was that my room was located near the housekeep staff and there was loud talking among the staff early the next morning. They were most accommodating though.

VERY COZY

THE WYNDAM RIVERFRONT WAS VERY COZY, THE ROOM SEEMED LARGER DUE TO THE STRATEGIC PLACEMENT OF THE FURNITURE. I LIKE THE LARGE SHOWER AREA AND CLOSET SPACE. THE LOCATION TO THE NEW ORLEANS ENTERTAINMENT DISTRICT WAS EXCELLENT.
