The W New Orleans – French Quarter,offers visitors a private oasis in the vibrant city of New Orleans. The $9 million transformation of W New Orleans – French Quarter is part of a comprehensive renovation strategy, which includes plans to reinvigorate more than 10 of its hotel properties in the US.
"When W New Orleans – French Quarter opened more than 12 years ago, it created a new scene in our vibrant city," said James Wroblewski, general manager for W New Orleans -- French Quarter.
The hotel sits just steps away from some of New Orleans' most popular attractions, including the electrifying Bourbon Street and renowned Royal Street.
The property has 97 guest rooms, including four bungalows, in its new redesign featuring jazz and tarot-card design motifs. Inspired by the liveliness of Big Easy music, the jazz design features vibrant golden yellow walls, white lacquered furniture, and an oversized floor-to-ceiling brass image modeled after the bell of a horn. In-room technology also has been enhanced with new 40" plasma TVs.
A charming outdoor courtyard centerpiece and a WET deck surrounded by an intricate wrought-iron gate complete the attractive exterior. For some Atlanta visitors, the W French Quarter offers a unique getaway experience in the Crescent City.
"The highlight of my trip to New Orleans was the W French Quarter hotel," said Renee from Atlanta. "Their immaculate accommodation, décor and the staff's exceptional service gave my New Orleans experience a feeling of being home away from home."
Renovations also include the addition of SWEAT, a state-of-the-art fitness center and a new signature restaurant, SoBou—the name of which is the contraction, "South of Bourbon Street"— offering breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and the regionally sourced menu, created by Executive Chef Juan Carlos Gonzalez. These unique touches help add to the W's overall appeal.
"As the W brand continues to evolve, we are committed to creating a consistent, cutting-edge experience for our jet-set guests. The renovation is critical to enhancing the overall guest experience while also drawing in locals with a very personalized touch."
