W Hotel The Best of the Big Easy What's the word for W New Orleans? Spicy. Located just steps from the notorious French Quarter but in a quieter location for a peaceful night’s rest, W New Orleans is close to shopping, Harrah’s Casino and the Warehouse District. Laissez les Bons Temps Rouler Let lounge impresario Rande Gerber put his voodoo on you at Whiskey Blue . Or fall under the spell of flavor at foodie’s delight Zoë, where Louisiana comfort foods meet contemporary cuisine. When times get too hot, cool off in a poolside cabana.

Our fluffy beds are wrapped in 350-thread-count sheets and topped with down duvets. Slip into Bliss with spa-style bath amenities.
