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.

NICE, BUT NO POOL AND HIGH $$PARKING FEE

The hotel was very nice and clean and the staff was great. The only problems I had were no swimming pool and the parking was $32 per night. Most hotels have these options available at no cost.

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!

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.

A night in the City with Friends

The reason we choose this hotel was for the location and the price of the room but the parking was ridiculously high. We were in our room for approximately 30 minutes (enough time to drop off luggage freshen up and head out to the Quarter to meet up with friends from out of town). We were out until the wee hours of the morning (6AM) so other than to sleep from 6 – 11 in order to meet the check out time requirements, the time spent in the room was for sleeping. The room was very comfortable and very clean. Even though we were on the main road on the 3rd floor it was very quiet. I fell a later check out time would be more convenient.

There are many great places to eat that are just a short walk away and there is a restaurant in the Hotel but we choose to eat Mulate's which offers a full Cajun experience from the music to the food, the service was excellent as well as the food.

Perfect Location

Very nice hotel right across from the River Walk mall. Clean and the staff was very friendly. I wish that I would have stayed my whole trip at this hotel. Much cheaper than the other hotels around.

Wonderful Hotel

Perfect location with Riverwalk directly across the street, which turned out to be a perfect way to walk down to the French Quarter. Lovely view and close enough to walk, but far enough away to be away from the craziness. The staff was wonderful and truly the only thing I would add is a continental breakfast. Though the in-hotel resturant is lovely, it is a bit pricey for breakfast and there are no places around that are quick. The beds are fabulous and made being away from home easier. I did have problems with the internet access, but that was an AT&T problem and their tech people helped me fix it. Overall, we'd definitely stay there again.
