At the foot of Canal Street, the Westin is technically in the French Quarter -- but not quite of it. It is literally above the Quarter: The grand-scale lobby is on the 11th floor of the Canal Place tower. At press time, the hotel was undergoing a shift from a Wyndham hotel to a Westin property. The guest rooms were in the process of total renovation to Westin standards, which will include all new furniture, new decor and best of all, the Westin's trademarked Heavenly beds and Heavenly showers. This upgrade should be completed by spring 2008. It's unclear what else (especially with regard to prices) will change as a result of the change of ownership. Still, this transition can only be a good thing, as the accommodations long hadn't lived up to the setting. The hotel provides some of the city's most expansive views of the river and the French Quarter; those rooms are clearly the most desirable. Even if you don't stay here, you might want to come by and have a drink in the lobby, to soak in the river view.
Facilities: Restaurant; bar; heated pool; privileges at a nearby 18-hole golf course; concierge; tour desk; room service; laundry; dry cleaning; direct elevator access to Canal Place shopping center, where guests can use the health center free of charge, or visit the barbershop, salon, and stores. .
