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!

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.

Wyndham Riverfront Very Nice

Just to start off I am very picky, usually stay in 4 and 5 star Hotels. Wyndham was very clean and quiet, Would stay there again. The Staff is not super friendly, but answered all our questions cordially. Three of us girls stayed in one room comfortably. Our ages range from 58 to 75 and where able to walk comfortably to the French Quarters, needless to say we are all in good shape. If you have walking difficulties this is not for you. approximately a 10 minute walk.

Take the St. Charles Streetcar through the Business and Garden district, perfect at the end of the trip where you don't have to walk and can enjoy a ride and take pictures for $1.25 each way.

Satisfied!!

The staff was very friendly, and more than helpful. We stayed in a king deluxe room with our 18 month old and there was more than enough room to set up his pack-n-play and still have room to move around and not feel cramped. After we had checked in, we were leaving the hotel and they said they do offer cribs for little ones, if we wanted one. The location was great, not too far from anything we wanted to do.

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.
