I stayed here in May 2012 for a weekend for a bachelorette party. On previous stays in New Orleans I stayed at the Loews and the Roosevelt (which were fantastic), but I've stayed at Westins before and thought I knew what to expect. Alas, I was a little underwhelmed. It was a nice place- the staff was nice, the lobby is grand, our room had great river views, and the location is very central to the french quarter, but I feel like there is more they could do with the property. My main gripe was the pool. The rooftop pool could be amazing, but it's not. It's just ok. Just from looking around, it looks like that pool is the highest in the entire city which provides 100% sun (you can see some hotel's pools only get partial sun because they aren't as high) and amazing views of the city and river. This should be a huge selling point yet its barely mentioned on the website. The pool area was clean and there were enough towels but there is not enough seating and forget about it if you want to get drinks. Westin- put a little tiki bar up there!!! Or, at least make it easier to order food/drinks. I saw a girl come around once the entire time we were there. We ended up going to a nearby liquor store and bringing up our own stuff. I would think that the hotel is missing out on major revenue there. That pool area could be the crown jewel atop that building but instead its just very "blah". Bummer.
