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.

Excellent Facility

The Wyndham Riverfront in New Orleans was an upscale hotel that had pleasant, friendly and helpful staff from curbside to registration to housekeeping. The location of the hotel was in walking distance to my meeting, the streetcar, the Casino, and shopping. The car was parked and stayed parked the entire stay because of the convenience of everything. The restaurant breakfast was excellent with good service. The hotel was an outstanding value, and we will use again.

There is shopping across the street from the hotel as well as within 4 - 6 blocks of the hotel. The downtown mall provided upscale as well as moderate priced shopping.

Great New Orleans Hotel

The Whyndam Riverfront is a great place to stay in New Orleans.The room was very comfortable and the staff very friendly. The 7 on Fulton has a terrific bar and is a wonderful place to eat. The location is within walking distance of everything you might want to do in New orleans. Overall a very good choice for accomodations in New Orleans and at a very reasonable price.

No need for a car, you can walk or take a street car to dozens of places. Real good location for seeing the city's action side.

My review of Wyndham Riverfront

Located near major arteries but is exceedingly quiet. Staff is efficient and helpful, suggesting places to visit. They were slow to repair a malfunctioning telephone voice-mail, but otherwise performed admirably. Highly recommend.
