W Hotel New Orleans Review

This hip property won't disappoint loyal W fans, with its sleek blend of East Coast sophistication and Southern charm. Rooms are decorated in neutral tones with hints of color, with first-rate amenities such as Bliss bath products and beds with goosedown pillows and comforters; 100 are designated as home-office rooms and especially good for business travelers. The upscale lobby is home to the Rande Gerber–designed Whiskey Blue lounge.

    Hit and miss

    Great location, cute courtyard, but the room was worn, service very mixed, the complimentary breakfast laughable (coffee, a few pieces of fruit stuck in a basket, and cream for the coffee only after asking several times for someone to retrieve some)...and one design oddity that must be noted: the sliding bathroom door (I'm told, by the maintenance engineer, on all the rooms) does not close all the way, leaving a 1 inch gap. Provocative or irritating? You decide.
