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. 

Features

Guests can enjoy 24-hour room service, or choose the on-site 7 on Fulton restaurant where contemporary New Orleans cuisine is offered at breakfast, lunch and dinner and for cocktails.  Free Wi-Fi in the lobby is a bonus.

visit before cruise to Caribbean

Loved the location- across the st. on last day to ocean liner taking us on cruise. Biggest surprise- the back door is located on Fulton St.- taking us to Manning's and Ruth Chris'- then to Harrah's and on to Canal St. to a wonderful walk to Jackson Sq., Bourbon St., etc.

Nice, reasonable hotel

The hotel staff was very friendly. The bathroom was extremely small. Very close to Riverwalk and Convention Center. Reasonably priced hotel in NOLA.

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.

Great Location!

I had stayed at his hotel several years ago and enjoyed the room and service. The rooms and service are still impeccable. There is nothing bad I can say about our stay. Rhonda, April '09

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.
