Great Stay

Great hotel stay, two floors no elevator. Rooms were clean and welcoming. Very nice pool and a hotwater tub to soak in. Next to gas stations, shops and restaurants. The hotel is also 15 to 20 minutes from the heart of New Orleans. Breakfast is serve in the mornings 6am to 9:30 am.

Great, Clean, Modern Hotel!

The only reason the hotel is receiving a 4 star review is one of the main reasons we booked this hotel is for the indoor jacuzzi, turns out when we got there the jacuzzi was out of order for the whole stay. So we tried to pool and it was FREEZING and it was around 80-85 degrees and it was still too cold to swim in. Other than that the breakfast was great, they give you breakfast passes to receive their complimentary hot breakfast, ham, eggs, potatoes, and grits plus some. Overall the staff was very nice and they helped us with everything we needed. If you're visiting New Orleans to go to the aquarium and hang out the French market be ready for high $ parking if you are not from a big city (like us) right near the aquarium the parking goes from 10-25$ a HOUR. So I advise going down a few blocks to Iberville st and finding a parking garage that is only 25$ for the whole day. It isn't a bad walk to the aquarium at all, and completely worth not paying 120$ just for 12 hours. Overall I would book this hotel, if was clean relaxing and the bed was SOOOO comfortable! ***

Unprofessional Employees !!!!Double Charges!!!!!!

Pros: Location, free internet (when it was working), the hot breakfast and the fresh baked cookies at check-in.
Cons: Customer service classes for employees and disclosure of payment process at reservation.
Location: Many restaurants, shopping, movie theatre
When I checked-in, the first room smelled so moldy, I requested to be moved. The clerk was very accommodating with this. The second day, the internet was out and I called the front desk to ask about it. I was told to in a very patronizing tone "if it's not working, it must be out". I thought this was the most unfriendly, unprofessional, and demeaning manner in which she could inform me that the internet was out. When I checked in, the hotel held the funds on my debit card for the full price of my stay plus $25.00 for incidentals. I had absolutely no problem with this. When I checked out 3 days later, I was charged the full price of the room AGAIN minus the $25.00. This was a problem. At this point, Best Western Plus Westbank is holding up $653.70 of MY money for a stay that cost a total of $326.85. I stay here EVERYTIME I visit New Orleans. I can guarantee you THIS stay was the last one. I only keep so much in my checking account and transfer money from my savings when needed. While traveling home I needed gas, food, etc. and my card kept being declined and I did not understand why since I knew what I had and what I was spending. This placed undue stress on me while being several hundred miles away from home & my credit union as they are a Florida based credit union and not in other states. I will NEVER stay at this hotel again as they should inform guests that they will be paying TWICE for the room and forced to wait 2-3 days for their funds to become available.

Would stay here over and over again....

Pros: Everything...
Location: We ate at New Orleans Burgers and Seafood... it was fantastic.. Took a Swamp tour, not to far from the hotel and enjoyed every minute of it...
Had a wonderful stay here. The breakfast was hot and very tasty. The pool and hot tub, Fantastic !!! You will just love the afternoon desk staff ( Nancy and Belinda) They have a great little gift shop. The rooms were very clean, updated and the beds, wow they were comfy.....Didn't go to the on site, pool side bar, but it had a very inviting decor...our room was close to the elevator, but didn't hear any noise...Have already recommended it to friends.. This is my all time place to stay when we are anywhere close...
