Okay...not impressedfrom A TripAdvisor Member
W - Way overrated!from yppub
Using 20000 Starwood Points and paying for an extra night, I would have expected better than a room the size of a closet, with a bathroom door which was see-through and a bathroom so unclean it had someone's pills all over the floor. Plus, the room seemed as if it had not been dusted in days. I had to ask for the sheets to be changed during my stay.
When you check in, you are told that your every need will be tended to. NOT SO! They volunteer to have food from surrounding restaurants delivered. One night, a teenager working there told me that there wasn't any way to get any food but a pizza. Not so. One morning when I ordered breakfast, I was promised that it would be there in 15 minutes. Almost an hour passed before the luke warm omlet and fries arrived, without eating utensils, condoments or napkins. When I checked out and saw that the hotel put a 150% markup on the actual price, I was livid.
Not only that, but they charge for everything, even 36.00 a day to park your car in the hotel owned garage. OUTRAGEOUS!
I have stayed in other W Hotels, for example, W Union Square in New York, so I never expected the shotty room and service I received in New Orleans.
Do yourself a favor and find another hotel.
An Overall Great Hotel To Experience The French Quarterfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Since I look at everything in detail, there were a few things they could have done better.
We arrived at 12:30 pm from the airport and were told that check in is not until 3 pm, but they will let us know if the rooms open up earlier than 3 pm. We went back twice and the room did not open up until 3:15pm. The check out time is 12pm. Most hotels would have had housekeeping get the rooms ready for new guest immediately. I have a bad back so every minute counted. I needed to lie down.
The towels on our first day were very soft, but the days following were so rough. Luck or intentional...I don’t know. We also have asked for extra sheets. We left them folded nicely on the chair unused. Housekeeping took them away so, we have to tip someone again for a different set of sheets.
Most staffs were very friendly. I thought housekeeping could have done a better job and the cabana girl we had one of the days was a little on the rude side.
Just some things bothered me, but overall experience was commendable.

PARTY CENTRALfrom A TripAdvisor Member
They dont pick up your dirty underwear .... Anways we were there for Mardi Grai and it was AWESOME... This hotel is in the BEST LOCATION!!!
We filled up on alcohol and hit Bourban street and went to and from our hotel for more liquor and to use the bathroom. You can walk to the hotel in less than 3 minutes from Bourban... Yeah there is no bar in the hotel but it is literaly 200 yards away from the action... it is close to Decates street where you can get food during the day... This is an awsome place to go if you are 20 to mid thirties and you want to party. If you need to bring some new friends back to the hotel... NO PROBLEM... Although a room key is required at all time to activate the elevator... which is great for security purposes. Yeah there is no room service but there are local food joints that deliver to the room in 30 mins or less and are soooo much cheaper than average room service and better food too. We had a large real italian nyc style pizza deilvered with 6 toppings for 15 dollars!!!!! Food is cheap in New orleans....The music is not LOUD its elevator music but ultra techno or trans... YOU ARE IN NEW ORLEANS.... PARTY YOUR A*& OFF!!!!!!
bad service!!!!!from Natalia_Luff2004
The only thing I liked about this hotel was the shower head.
Really enjoyed our stayfrom nolagirl
Had to let the shower run for about 10 minutes. I will definitely stay here again on my next trip to New Orleans. Also, try the Starwood website for the best rates - they offer great weekend deals.

Top Local Tips for New Orleans
Go Uptown for Orgasmic Food! You must go to the Delechaise wine bar on St. Charles street on your way uptown. The bar food it out of this world! (And I've eaten all of the world.) French fries fried in duck fat, chocolate stuffed french toast, the best grilled cheese sandwich...we're not talking Kraft singles here.
MUST for New Orleans visitors You MUST go to Cafe Du Monde for beginets. Melted in my mouth. Incredible deal - 3 good sized beginets for $1.82! Best fresh from the fryer with mountains of powdered sugar. I'm not even a donut person, but I couldn't get enough!
Bus and streetcar On a beautiful day, take the St. Charles street car to the Audubon Park and walk through the park to get to the zoo. On a less than perfect day, take the Magazine Street bus that drops you off right in front of the zoo. Magazine St. also has a ton of cute boutiques, restaurants & cafes. Buses and streetcars are $1.25.
