My husband and I came to New OrIeans for the Ironman 70.3 Triathlon on April 22. I used Priceline to to put a bid in for a hotel downtown and it was accepted at the Wyndham Garden. I did some research and was pleasantly excited to see that this was a unique building with a lot of character. It also eased my mind that it had gotten a lot of good reviews. I also saw that if you wanted a room with an outside window, you had to ask. Otherwise you may get one with a window to the inside.
Check in was quick and the clerk was very pleasant and helpful. I had requested an outside window room with a king bed, but had gotten a double. This was not a real issue for us, and as I noticed later on, almost all of the rooms with outside windows were double beds, so it's possible that they may all be that way.
We made our way up to the room on the 2nd floor. We were happy to see that the room was larger than what were expecting. There was plenty of storage space, including a bench with drawers under it, a small cabinet, and a very large cabinet for hanging up clothes and storing shoes. This was very handy as we had a lot of triathlon gear and clothing for our 4 night stay. There was ample space for his bike and bike box and everything had a place and we did not feel cluttered or crowded in.
The bathrooms were nice and modern with a lot of room to put our toiletries. The shower pressure was great and took only a few seconds to get hot water.
The beds are indeed some of the best and most comfortable in any hotel we have stayed in (have also heard that from other reviewers and yes, it is true).
The free WIFI was super fast, and I never had a problem connecting.
The room was very clean and we did not find any problems with it at all.
The hotel is also within great walking distance to downtown and Bourbon Street. There is only a small cafe on site, and I highly recommend going to the nearby Streetcar Cafe. Had a nice breakfast there and the owner is very friendly and knowledgeable about events in the city. Also if you are craving good Cajun food, try Sammy's on Bourbon Street. We ate there 3 times and were never dissatisfied!
The only downside is the self parking. It is limited and only smaller vehicles can fit,
When we come back to New Orleans, we will definitely stay here!
