Concierge.com's insider take:

The much-lauded 324-room Windsor Court Hotel epitomizes New Orleans luxury while playing freely with disparate aesthetics. Completed in 1984, the Windsor Court transports design cues from Windsor Castle and other grand English country manors into a modern architectural space. Prints and paintings of equestrians and wig-wearing 18th-century nobles abound, and original oils by Reynolds and Gainsborough hang in the first- and second-floor lobbies. A traditional afternoon tea is served in the grand lobby area, and the Polo Club Lounge, with its dark wood panels and resident piano player, feels like an old-time gentlemen's club. The majority of the rooms are spacious suites with elegantly appointed sitting areas, wet bar/kitchenette amenities, and commanding views of the river or downtown.—Pableaux Johnson

Only blocks from the French Quarter, this hotel has British influence evident throughout its 23 rose-colored granite and bronze-tinted glass riverfront stories. Guest enter through a brick courtyard anchored by a fountain and sculpture of St. George. Mostly suites, guest rooms resemble English manors, with high ceilings, original artwork, an emphasis on the color yellow, and Italian-marble baths. The Grill Room serves updated French dishes, like poulet rouge duo. "Staff are on top of their game."
