Location really is key with this property. A few blocks in one direction and you're in the French Quarter. A few blocks the other way and the CBD and Warehouse district beckon. You will be greeted with a warm welcome by a great bell staff the minute you step out of your cab.
The rooms are quiet and relatively large, but some of the furnishings are a bit worn, as are some of the public areas. A re-fresh of the elevators last year improved this somewhat.
The on-site restaurant is just ok which is a shame because the staff is generally good and the views unparalleled. Being in New Orleans, the standard is quite high for dining and the Westin falls a bit short here, but there are hundreds of options off-site for dining.
