Has anyone stayed at the Windsor Court hotel?

It is a 20th anniversary and we are going Memorial day weekend. My husband wants to stay somewhere with a pool. I came up with the Windsor Court.Is it nice or run down? Is Maison De Ville hotel nicer? Is Windsor court in a good area of town? Is there a particuliar room type/view we should request? Also, how is their restaurant the Grill room? Thanks to all who reply!

Windsor Court is still the best in town, better than the new Ritz Carlton. There is nothing run down about it, and while the Maison de Ville is nice, Windsor Court is truly world class.
The Grill Room has been outstanding every time I've gone save once, and I have been since then, so maybe it was just a bad night.
Remember though, that there are seemingly a million other good restaurants in New Orleans not in your hotel.

If the Windsor Court were in any other town I'd probably be its biggest fan. However, in New Orleans it just seems a little out of place. It definitely is NOT run down and the location is fine, too...but it has absolutely NO New Orleans personality at all. If I were you, I'd look into Maison de Ville. The Grill Room is fine, but in my opinion, there are LOTS of restaurants that are better.

If you choose the Maison deVille, be VERY careful about room location. Most are inside and quiet, but we "lucked out"--or so we thought--and got a room at the last minute. Well, it was right across the street from a bar that had a rock band blaring until about 3:00 am with VERY LOUD amplification and a throbbing bass that shook our building. It sounded like they were in our room. The hotel is aware of this because they had made an attempt to put up muffling panels in the old french doors. They were totally ineffective. It is a charming place, but if you want to sleep, make sure they put you in a quiet location.

Windsor Court is nice but I found it stuffy. Will stay there again at Superbowl and will let you know!

We just returned from our 19th anniv. at the Windsor Court. Everything was perfect including our dinner in the Grill Room. Request a junior suite on an upper level with river view. You can reserve on the internet and receive a better rate (try either neworleans.com or turbo trip .com) It is a full service hotel in a good location. Wonderful restaurants within walking distance other than the Grill Room are Cuvee and Restaurant August.

There is no other place in NOLA that I would rather stay than the Windsor court. The location is great. The pool is fantastic. I wouldn't mind trying the Ritz but the location is not the best. As for the Grill room we didn't have a pleasant experience there. But with all the other choices within walking distance of the hotel why stay in the hotel to eat.You will have a fantastic 20th anniversay if you choose this hotel its great!

I'm still trying to figure out how Windsor Court has no New Orleans personality. Our room was done in wonderful reproduction mahagony furniture including a four poster rice bed with a sort of magnolia print chintz fabric dripping from it. There were wonderful art works of New Orleans gardens and houses. What is more New Orleans in style than that? Unless it is vomit on the floor from binging on Bourbon Street. It is a refined and exquisite hotel with outstanding service and beautiful rooms.

I have posted a few times how much we loved the Windsor Court. A suite is pure heaven. What I thought was great was that it was so quiet and sedate after being out in all the partying. It was great to run back to our room there and feel the elegance of the place. It oozes relaxation. I loved the pool as well. It is small but elegant and there was a man coming over to offer me an array of complimentary sun screens and water with a slice of orange. They have room service by the pool and the hot tub is right there. The small gym overlooks the pool and they had Evian mister bottles scattered around. Several times I would come out of the pool to find my towel had been changed. The new cushions had a head rest. I was a happy camper. I was not impressed with their dining room. We had great food in the French Quarter at some wonderful places. I am envious of the above poster who is going this weekend. It was not crowded when we were there and the doorman address us as Mr. and Mrs. Potensky when we went in and out. We love Vegas but never have service like that there. Hey I am ready to book again. E me if you have any questions.
