NileGuide Expert Says:
Not to be confused with its high-rise W counterpart on Poydras Street, the boutique-sized W French Quarter feels more like a family—a hip, jet set, entertainment industry family, that is. From the ruby-hued, velvet-walled entry Living Room to its in-crowd lantern-lit courtyard lounge, the W French Quarter mixes sleek with sparkle and forward-thinking design with a certain New Orleanian character and mystique. If you favor progressive design but still want to experience the old-world atmosphere of the French Quarter, this W is an ideal compromise.
