Double you

The W Hotel is one of New Orleans finer hotels.

The former Crowne Plaza Hotel on Poydras Street just blocks from the river was bought in 2000 by W Hotels and revitalized into a plush experience -- touches like a lobby with hard wood maple floors joined by a winding marble stairway. This shot is from down the street in the cavernous over hang of a nearby building. Notice the art piece to the left. It seems to be trying to mimic the W.
