W Hotel - Affordable, stylish hotel in New Orleans Mar 06, 2011
+ Location was alright. Only a small walk away from Canal Street. Like 10 Minutes walking-distance away from the french quarter.
+ The lobby was a very stylish. Kinda impressing, but very dark as well.
+ Room was alright. Big enough for 4 people, clean bathroom.
+ Free snacks and water (or Ice tea) at the lobby
Would I turn back again to the W Hotel? Yes.
+ The staff at the hotel, were mostly friendly. But the dude who welcomed us for the check-in, was kinda stupid. We booked a room for 4 guys. But he told us, we had booked 1 room for 4 peoples, with 1 BED only.
When I asked him "How do you want to put 4 guys in 1 room, with 1 bed?? You can't do that."
I got a very smart-ass answer "Oh yeah.. sure.. I can do that."
After seeing my not-so-very-amused face, he added "... but I'm gonna try to fix that."
He should think twice, for talking smack with travelers we had to take 3 flights, and had 11 hours of flying on their back.
If you're going to NoLa during mardi gras...don't get an Hotel in the French Quarter area. TOO NOISY! This hotel was just fine. Noiseless at night.
