Address: 316 Chartres Street

Neighborhood: French Quarter

City: New Orleans



Expert Review

The prime asset at this historic property, right on the fringe of the French Quarter, is its outdoor courtyard, complete with a petite pool, sun beds, and a trickling fountain (on Thursday nights in summer, movies are projected on the courtyard wall behind the pool). A little more romantic than trendy, this W features 98 refined rooms in its converted Creole complex, the best are the carriage-house rooms with private balconies on higher floors and Jacuzzis on the lower floors. Fine Italian cuisine is served under gothic archways and cherubs at Bacco. A night on the town may transform Cinderella-style here with the hotel’s Whatever/Whenever service, complete with a new 300-horspower Acura MDX on call. Another convenient perk: You can dodge airport lines by printing out your airline boarding pass in advance at their Farewell Kiosk. A few blocks from the French Quarter, the W New Orleans, boasts 423 slick rooms and a rooftop pool.
