“amazing spot for jazz and cocktails”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

What a lovely hotel with great service. Although I did not stay here, I did attend a jazz show in the evening in the hotel's cocktail lounge. The cocktails were wonderful and so was the service. One of New Orlean's best kept secrets!

Dear ShayC30375,

Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience in one of our cocktail lounges. Both the Cocktail Bar and the Polo Club Lounge offer fantastic music and cocktails so I am happy you were able to experience it! We hope that on your next visit to New Orleans, you will consider staying with us so that all you have to do is take the elevator home.

It's not cheap, but the Windsor Court Hotel in New Orleans is a fabulous place to stay. We attended a 50th wedding anniversary for my wife's older brother and his wife. We stayed in one of the riverside suites on one of the top floors and we had a beautiful river view. The suite was beautiful, comfortable and very nice. We had access to the Club Room for breakfast, tea and snacks and drinks in the afternoon before going out for the evening. It was a great gathering place for our family. The staff is friendly and very professional. The lobby is magnificent. It's located only two blocks from the river and about four blocks from the French Quarter so it's an easy walk to most of the sights people come to New Orleans to see. Taxis are always available to get to restaurants that might be more than a walk. If you can afford it, it's the place to stay in New Orleans.

Four nights at this hotel were really good. The staff fell over themselves to help, the rooms were really big and the beds seriously comfortable with good ac.
We were lucky to stay on the 20th floor which gives you access to the club lounge on the 22nd with it's lovely outside terraces, a lovely spot to read a book with your free drinks.
Only mild criticism is that although the bathrooms were very clean and big they are a little dated for a top notch hotel.

This is a beautiful boutique hotel with a European feel. The staff are all courteous and professional and no detail is over looked. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. It is located in the center of downtown New Orlean close to everything. I highly recommend you treat yourself and spend some time in this beautiful hotel.

I booked this hotel because with everything going on In NOLA was booked up so I said let's stay on the Club floor in the WC! Oh boy was I happy ! This is the type of hotel we don't see in the USA much any more old world style, elegance, Class, Service and attention to detail ! The only door I touched was the door to my suite which was 2206. We were there 3 days and I did not see housekeeping at all but there work was evident with the quality of the cleanliness , the toiletries which even included mouth wash. When I called for something there was a knock at the door in seconds! I booked this trip through American Express Platinum travel service which included an upgrade, breakfast vouches and A $100 off Dinner voucher which I didn't use. We used the breakfast vouches that we enjoyed. No budget spending here but a great value for the money ! In which you need to bring plenty! My nickname for this hotel is Aladdin, your wish is their command! Especially on the club level the drinks were top rate, the food was top notch even the coffee and expresso was great. Along with the location close to the Quarter and with in walking distance of everything! I think her name is Denise she was the Hostess at the Club Lounge she was great, Welcoming,professional, friendly and warm many cudos to her! I swear every chance we had we had a glass of champagne which was of excellent quality. And the other times the pours of bourbon were generous, very generous..like at home :)! We had a drink at the bar in the lobby which were very good also. The bellman , the check in , the waiters and waitresses were all very nice and professional! I've stayed at some very nice World Class hotels I.e. Peninsular in Chicago, La Pavilion and Waldorf Astoria in NOLA , Trumps in Chicago and NYC and the very best the Hassler in Rome. And the Waldorf in Chicago. The WC gives the Hassler and the Waldorf it's run for the Money. If you can afford to stay here stay on the Club Floor you will not be disappointed. The WC is what a Hotel should be about. We will be staying here again!

Room Tip: Stay on the Club Level it's a better value than the Ritz and a better location in NOLA,

The bed is super comfy and the a/c works great. The bartenders are nice. And the rooms are huge.
The decor feels dated. There is no energy or vibe at the property. Good, I suppose, if you really want to be left alone.
The pool area is decent but the lack of service there is surprising. The first time we went there were several people working in the bar area but you needed to go to them to order anything. No -- what I would consider poolside-- service.
The second time we went to the pool there were no towels and no one to be found (at 6 pm). We called to request towels but none arrived before we left.
There are ice buckets in your room but you have to request ice. When we did this took over 20 minutes to arrive.
Turn-down service was inconsistent.
We picked this place over the Roosevelt and visited with friends who were staying there. They raved about the world class experience and the bar at the Roosevelt was lively and fun.
We had high hopes for the Windsor court but sadly were disappointed.

Have been staying here several times a year forever. At one time it was ranked the best hotel in the world. May have been it's undoing. Nonetheless, coming back is like returning home. Great service. A wonderful staff. The doormen great us by name. Food is outstanding. Lots of attention to detail without coming across as "stuffy." They have a new spa but have not tried that yet. Pool was recently renovated. Just love being here.

Room Tip: Get a room away from the elevator as the bell sound carries when the elevator opens on your floor...
