Windsor Court Hotel

NOLA's answer to the English countryside
VERIFIED LUXURY
Located in the city’s business district, Windsor Court brings a bit of the English countryside to New Orleans. The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel’s rooms feature traditional English furnishings and artwork, while bay windows provide views of the city or the Mississippi River. This full-service hotel also includes a pool, a Four-Star spa, and business and fitness centers. In a city hailed for its works of culinary genius, Windsor Court is no exception. The Grill Room is one of the hottest tables in town, while the Polo Club Lounge is ideal for cocktails.

Our Inspector's Highlights
  • Windsor Court Hotel, which gets its name from an 11th-century English castle, adheres to a British aristocratic design style. Rich furnishings resemble Downton Abbey set pieces, and walking through lounge areas feel like stepping into a traditional British club, complete with plenty of pictures of men with their horses.
  • Though the world-class spa sits just two blocks from buzzing Canal Street, the quiet sanctuary seems far away with its Old World charm combined with modern treatments and techniques.
  • The hotel has a roofdeck pool, which features heated saltwater, that stays open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. from winter to summer. (Don’t worry, they turn the heat off during New Orleans’s humid dog days of summer.)
Things to Know
  • Whether you’re visiting Le Salon for the luxury hotel’s prim and proper afternoon tea service or relaxing in the Polo Club Lounge with a classic cocktail, you’ll most certainly feel a welcome member of high society.
  • Windsor Court Hotel is located just a five-minute walk from the heart of the French Quarter and a host of boutiques, music venues and historic architecture. It’s also right by the Warehouse District, home to some of New Orleans’ best restaurants.
The Rooms
  • The suites at this luxury New Orleans hotel follow a light-blue-green color scheme, reflected in the floral patterned drapes, painted walls, lounge chair and ottoman, decorative pillows and bed spread.
  • The spacious suites also feature Ethernet ports, flat-screen Phillips televisions, and iHome clock radios complete with iPod/iPhone docks.
  • The best views at Windsor Court Hotel are those of the Mississippi River. When reserving your room — regardless of which room you choose — make sure to put in a request for a top level room with a river view. Unless the hotel is way too busy, the staff can usually accommodate such requests.
The Restaurant
  • The Grill Room offers a contemporary dining experience that feels different for each guest. Most of that sensation comes from customizable three-, four- and five-course experiences on offer every night. 
  • You can order room service to your suite at any time of day or night. Until 10 p.m., you have the choice of ordering off the regular suite service menu or from selections at Grill Room, the hotel’s resident fine dining restaurant. When it gets late, you can choose from a small (but tasty) roster of wings, pizza and other favorites.
  • When you stop by the Cocktail Bar, try a Firm Handshake from the bartender. Having absolutely nothing to do with the literal gesture, this creative creation combines Evan Williams Single Barrel bourbon, ginger root tea, “grade B” maple syrup (that just means its dark and not diluted) and Jerry Thomas’ Own decanter bitters.
