I stayed here for a week while attending a conference and then for a couple of days R&R. First the good points. Rooms clean, good size and nicely upgraded though hallways are a bit dreary and not well lit. Front desk staff and concierge very helpful (though there was a mixup with my reservation and room when I checked in... More

Beautiful design, big room (coming from NYC, liked how large the king room was.) Highs: Bell staff, concierge, size of room, design, nice shower and vanity. Lows: There are outlets in all of the lamps which would have been fantastic if they worked. The TV must run on a satellite because it constantly glitched the picture. The bathroom and bedroom...

Great Location! (formerly the W) Friendly Staff! Only 2 complaints were 1. The hot water in the shower was luke warm at best. 2. Someone's sock was left in our room. I'm assuming it was the previous guests???

Had a bad start to my stay which probably colored my opinion for the remainder of the stay - at check-in, was given the wrong type of room (had reserved a suite, was put into a small room). Upon returning to the front desk, was told to wait while they sorted out the room situation. No type of compensation was... More

The hotel was good. The rooms were clean. The service in the bar, housekeeping and concierge impeccable. But if you call/write the hotel to ask if they are done with the renovation, and they say Yes you do not expect to find ongoing construction work in the lobby. For me travelling with work I will sometimes work early/late in the... More

No towels in the room. Had to call three times to get them. Called for wine glasses. Never received them. No explanation. Refrigerator did not work. Was told three times it would be fixed. The fourth time I called I was told it was only a cooler. Did not get my green rewards points. No coffee in the lobby before... More

Very friendly and helpful front desk staff - great advice on restaurants, things to do, and the real story behind Mardi Gras. I have stayed at many hotels in the area over the years, and would definitely stay here again. One tip - the daily internet rate is pretty expensive, but free for SPG members.
