Hotel Description

Of the two W hotels in town, the French Quarter location is the smaller — under a hundred rooms — and the better placed, close to the Riverwalk and Jackson’s Square, and surrounded by the French Quarter itself, surely the whole point of a trip to New Orleans.

There are touches of French Quarter influence all over the W, from the wrought-iron gate outside to the Venetian chandeliers hanging in the restaurant; all very appropriate for one of America’s most European cities. But it stops well short of kitsch — this is 21st-century New Orleans, not some gothic period piece. The rooms are sunny and bright, with cheerful splashes of magenta keeping the vampires at bay, and some rooms have French doors opening onto balconies with views over the courtyard pool.

What the reliable W may lack in surprises it makes up for in pure comfort. Those much-ballyhooed beds, for example, really are worth bragging about, and as cloying as the W’s alliterative “whatever, whenever” promise may sound on paper, it’s quite a selling point when you realize it’s actually true — this is the kind of town where you can get yourself into 24-hour trouble, if you have a concierge who knows where to look.
