Overview

Recent guests say staff members are friendly and accommodating
Guest rooms are small for the price point

Surrounded by lots of shops and galleries and close to the excitement of Bourbon Street, the W New Orleans – French Quarter certainly has location in its favor. In addition to its prime locale and cushy brand perks like Bliss beauty products and concierge service, this hotel differentiates itself through its first class hospitality. Recent guests note that the front desk goes the extra mile to make lodgers feel at home. Along with the service-oriented staff, travelers also praise the restaurant and bar SoBou for its knowledgeable servers and varied menu of Louisiana street food-inspired small plates. As far as lodging goes, though, travelers cautioned that the rooms here are small. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Rewards members can earn and use points here.

You have to hand it to W – this suave chain does things right. This incarnation is housed in a tower that was once a bland office building.
