W French Quarter
Intimate and swanky, the W New Orleans French Quarter – a chain hotel with a design feel – is the perfect pied à terre for the French Quarter visitor who insists on home comforts. Constructed from an older hotel, it has the bones of a classic New Orleans building with a fashionable modern face-and like the building, the crowd tends to skew a bit older and wealthier than at the average W. On the Italianate courtyard, flowers and fountains surround the pool and sundeck. People-watchers should request a room overlooking the French Quarter streets. Luxury seekers should consider booking one of the hotel’s carriage houses. Expect the best.
