THE HONEYMOONER: Cooling Out in New Orleans

June 1, 2009

WNola2New Orleans is known for great music, fabulous food, a blend of Afro-Caribbean and European cultures, and—oh yes—that steamy weather. On a recent visit, I discovered a genuinely cool spot to beat the heat: The pool at the W New Orleans in the French Quarter. It shares a Moroccan-inspired courtyard with a fountain and daybeds, and it’s illuminated by candles and lanterns at night. There’s nothing like a cocktail and a dip to start off an evening in the Big Easy. –Xander, The Honeymooner
