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
  • 24-hour fitness center
  • 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.

Was there for a convention

Staff was super friendly and helpful! The room was very nice and the bed, extremely comfortable. We especially liked the location... so close to the convention center (about 1/2 block), right across the street from the Riverwalk Market Place, and within walking distance to the French Quarter (or a quick streetcar ride away). By booking online, we also received two free breakfast vouchers per night of the stay. (Breakfast was tasty, but the same every morning... a buffet of scrambled eggs, hash browns, bacon, fruit and toast with three jam choices, with coffee and juice included.) I gave it four stars for amenities, as there was no pool, which would have been nice in the heat. However, not completely necessary, as there was really plenty to do in the area.

Wyndham Riverfront Hotel

Room Decent with great beds but small bathrooms. TV is out-dated. View from my room was poor at best. Location to convention center was terrific!! Only had breakfast 3 times - service was very slow; food decent. Work out room sufficent, computor room small. This hotel seems to have been renovated some time ago. Hallways creeked, needed key to get to floors with room which seemed tro indicate that area was not safe.

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.
