Cons: Need to hire more Check in/out Staff.
Location: Great Location.
They had only 1 staff member to service a long line upon check in. Secondly, While waiting to depart, I had one final question? "What time is check-out? Again, I did not feel like waiting or jumping the line. This is NOT a 4 Star Hotel in my opinion. Other than that, l would rate this Hotel as OK. Regards

Design vs. Comfort

4 out of 5
by from San Francisco, United States of America

Pros: Location
Cons: Signage, more staff, speedier service.
I arrived after dark and spent a good minute to find the reception. Check-in was quick, but finding an elevator took another minute. There is no help with the luggage or intra-hotel directions, no signs either. My room was titled "Wonderful" or "Fabulous", however there was nothing wonderful or fabulous in it. It was pretty much the size of a king size bed, with a lot of designer's touch: a strange structure in the corner painted in a sort of Roy Lichtenstein style, a green soup, and a few other unusual things, but no bath tub. The room was clean and well kept; the room service came well after noon. The bed was good. The soundproof was not good. For over $300/night I would prefer less design and more comfort.

Small rooms, Great Location

I stayed in a room with a king bed and a balcony. Much smaller room than expected. Bed and bathroom were clean. Carpets were somewhat questionable. Friendly and helpful staff. Just little slow for my North East standard. Great location within French Quarter. Full of history, music and arts, great food and alcohol.

Perfect location

Posted Aug 22, 2016
Pros: Service and location - excellent!
Cons: Lumpy mattresses
Location: 2 streets away from Bourbon Street and Chartres Street leads directly to Frenchman's Street - everything was within walking distance
Stayed at the W French Quarter between August 18-21st 2016 and the hotel was a perfect location for exploring the surrounding bars, resturants and curiousities. The hotel staff was very accommodating and the rooms were clean and comfortable. Loved the whatever/whenever feature provided by the hotel - excellent service option!! The bathrooms were a little on the small side and the beds a little lumpy for my personal taste but nothing that would detract from the overall experience. I would stay there again on my next visit and have not hesitated to recommend the hotel to other friends.

We walked in to the hotel and we're greeted with a friendly smile and very helpful staff. The room was unique to say the least and very modernized but nice. Though it appeared to be clean we found trash under the bed and in random places. Room staff was not very friendly and did not clean our room good at all. Everything else was great.

Close but overpriced

For the price we expected more. Expensive parking, expensive Internet, no laundry room, no lobby, 3 towels for 4 people with 1 little shampoo and hotel resteraunt overpriced. The hotel claims to be dog friendly however there is no place for them to go. The staff was great and it was in walking distance to everything. Decor starts to wear on you after a couple days.
