    Pros: Fun party hotel, but not so welcoming
    Cons: Most rooms small with smaller bathrooms, thin walls

    Pros: Cool style.
    Cons: Bedbugs (No kidding!)

    Summary: I stayed at the W (on Poydras St.) when my company held a big meeting there. My first impression from the lobby, was that this is a very hip, stylish hotel. There were little candles set all around in the lobbing in the evening, which set up a really ... read more

    Cons: None

    Summary: We LOVE the W. It is for the trendy most definitely. We stayed there in Aug 03- visiting Harrah's casino. The lobby is swanky and was content hanging out there. The room is not too big but the black walls and the red down feather comforter and ... read more
