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.

Perfect for business

I was there for a conference that was actually being held at this hotel. If you need to be close to the Convention Center, the location is perfect. Is also right across the street from Riverwalk. Also very close to lots of top-shelf restaurants and Harrahs Casino if that interests you. The front desk staff was extremely helpful, especially Elizabeth. This was my first trip to "Nawlins" and they knew exactly what restaurants to send us to. Would go back.

worst experience ever

A Had a apple under one of the beds. The air conditioner didn't work, went to bed hot. The valet and belmans were very sweet. It's not a four star hotel if you ask me. There wasn't a cooler and our TV was acting up.

Great location near many attractions and food! Comfortable beds - the double beds seemed small but then once your off to sleep, you never noticed!

Many places "just right there"! Loved Grand Ilse Restaurant with great variety and Fabulous cocktails! Mannings for the sports person and Ruth Chris for a little more upscale is superb. So many and so much to choose from!

Comfortable Location

Location of this hotel was great for needing to be near the Convention Center. You have the Casino, Riverwalk, and Restaurants conveniently located. The staff and hotel itself made our stay very comfortable in every phase. My only issue is a lack of emenities, especially with no continental breakfast. I know a lot of hotels don't offer this, but it makes a huge difference especially when your dropping $200+ for one night. Would rather pay the competitor rates of $150-$180 range that offer breakfast when traveling with a family of four, especially when the locations are not much further away. Overall, the place is great but too high in price
