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.

Very nice hotel

Attended DAV Convention in another hotel, which had been booked up. I actually think that I lucked out, since I got a better rate, the accommodations were excellent, and it was only a short walk to the convention. Although the hotel is in an historic building, the interior was new and modern and couldn't have been better.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The hotel was close enough to the trolley line that I used it to see the sights on Canal Street and to see the cemeteries. They are air conditioned and the cheapest way to get around.

Sleepless in New Orleans

We are not very well traveled so I do not have much to compare. [...] the room was right across from the elevator shaft/motor so the noise was sleep depriving! New Orleans was fun [...]. Also, some sort of stain on the wall in the room...not good attention to detail.

Great Price, Service & Hotel!!

For the value, this hotel is TOPS. Hard to find safe, decent location (no noise)at affordable price in NOLA. Valet parking is $35 extra...but you're right next to Mulate's (excellent Cajun food & Zydeco music & best bread pudding on planet earth)...and you can walk across the street to get to Cafe Du Monde (for obligatory beignets). Be sure to say "hi" to [...] the doorman & [...]the valet -- friendliest and most wonderful service-oriented guys ever! We will be back.

Plenty of room for the family

Our stay got off to a shakey start when, at check-in, we were told that the our 2 rooms each had a king bed and a pull-out, not two double beds in each, which was confirmed in my online reservation. The desk clerk never could explain why. It reminded us of the Seinfeld episode where Jerry and friends got a totally different rental car than the one they had reserved. Anyway, that aside, the room was large and spacious and comfortably clean. I wish they had taken a little of the extra space from the room and added it to the bathroom, which was a little cramped. The location was good and was within walking distance of all of the area attraction (French Quarter, Aquarium, Harrah's, Superdome, etc.). They do charge $32 a night for valet parking. All in all, this hotel was a good choice.

Can't beat the location ...very comfy!

Before I got there I was a bit put off by comments related to its views etc. but you cannot beat the location. You have two GREAT po'boy places ...especially "MOTHERS". The rooms were very nice, and the beds were super comfortable. You can walk to the French Quarters!
