“An alright stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

This wasn't the greatest place we've stayed but certainly wasn't the worst either. The furnishings in the lobby area as well as the room showed age-definitely appeared worn and some appeared stained. The rooftop pool area, despite excellent views, was underwhelming and showed age. Construction was underway on the top floor, therefore, guests were required to take the stairs from the floor before to get to the pool and the stairway was occasionally crowded with people working on the building. The room, though aged, was clean and comfortable with an excellent view, though construction was also going on with the air conditioning which meant we often had workers just outside of our window. For one evening and day during our stay the hotel was without air conditioning. Apparently this was unavoidable due to a malfunction; however, the hotel offered a complimentary breakfast to all guests that morning. We were worried the heat would be rough (June in the South); however, we were never terribly uncomfortable. We did hear several others complaining about the heat. The location of the hotel was excellent, within walking distance of pretty much anything you might want to do downtown. We probably will book elsewhere in the future because, for the price, we have definitely seen better in the area.

Fantastic hotel... lobby with the most magnificent view of the Mississippi river... wonderful staff!!! Hotel was just a few blocks away from the French Quarters, Jackson Square, Cafe Du Monde and the River bend!!One can hear Dixie music played by the Natchez ( Mark Twain) boat on Sunday mornings as soon as you step out from the hotel... I miss New Orleans already...I will definitely go back to this city and stay in this hotel!!!

Room Tip: Even if your room has no view.. the magnificent lobby at the 11th floor of the hotel will give you...

I am a New Orleans native and think I have stayed at every hotel downtown over the years. I was very disappointed with the Westin on this trip. The staff was friendly and helpful and the lobby is beautiful with amazing views of the river. However, the elevators were apparently unairconditioned, and only two seemed to be working, causing long waits and packed elevators. On the guest room floors, the elevator lobby and hallway carpets were horribly stained and discolored. The ice maker on our floor was not working and the catch drain was growing something nasty. The hallways were long and bare and kind of creepy - I didn't feel totally secure. The room itself was spacious and comfortable, as was the bathroom. However, until some upgrades are done to the hallways above the lobby, I wouldn't stay here again.

We stayed at this hotel two nights on the first leg of our trip from Florida to Texas. Our room was on the 24th floor and the view of the Mississippi and the French Quarter was spectacular! We brought our dog with us and he was happy as a clam with the river front park right across the street to walk him and Café Dumont within walking distance, along with being two short blocks from the French Quarter. The staff was extra friendly. The room was immaculate and service was exceptional. The location of this hotel was the perfect distance from seeing all the sights of the beautiful City of New Orleans. The only drawback was that we could hear a party of guys drunk and yelling in the hallway at 3am - totally oblivious to the time and people sleeping. When asked if they would be quiet they were indignant. Go figure, I drank my first beer once too (lol). However, we won't throw the baby out with the bathwater and would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Book a river view room to see the glorious Mississippi.

I will be staying later this year but had a conflict with my non-refundable reservation due to an unplanned change in my flights. Volker, who I believe to be the front desk manager, went out of his way to try to accommodate our changes. He was under no contractual obligation to do so and was helpful out of sheer goodwill. It's little niceties in service like this that I rarely experience anymore so I'm really looking forward to our upcoming visit if Volker's helpfulness typifies the service ethic of the hotel staff. Well done!

I stayed at the Westin Canal Place for a short weekend conference. Was skeptical at first because its so big, but boy was I surprised. The staff have outstanding attention to detail from the moment you walk in, and are willing to go the extra mile for any reasonable request.

The restaurant has a new chef and I would recommend their pizzas if you need to have something quick for lunch, but definitely go into NOLA for dinner.

My room was excellent, ask for a corner room if one is available facing the water. The roof pool has spectacular views of the city. Bourbon St. is only a short walk, as are some of the finer restaurants in the business/warehouse district.

Enjoy your stay, I sure did.
