The Windsor Court Hotel is beloved by New Orleans travelers for a variety of reasons. There's the view of the Mississippi River as seen from the higher-up balconies or bay windows, and the kind and courteous staff members that go above and beyond in customer service, according to visitors. Not to mention the delicious and refined Southern eats served in The Grill Room. Plus there are other nice features to consider, like Polo Club Lounge's live contemporary jazz performances every Saturday night, or the housekeeping staff's twice-daily room cleaning. Rooms come equipped with a blend of English and French decor, Italian marble baths, minibars and complimentary Wi-Fi access. You'll also find a full-service spa, fitness center and rooftop pool at this NOLA favorite. Windsor Court is located on Gravier Street, within walking distance of some of the city's top sites like the National World War II Museum.
