    Historical Traveler Reviews Le Meridien New Orleans

    Stayed in the Suite - Excellent


    Great room, great service, great location. Have to try a sandwich at "Mother's" next door. I recommend the Ferdi special.

    Wonderful Weekend at the W


    Just returned home from a Bachelorette Party weekend stay at the W. The rooms were great, the bed great, the service absolutely charming, and the atmosphere fabulous. Convenient to shopping and nightlife, without being too caught up in the chaos. I reccommend it highly.

    We loved the W !!!


    We stayed at the W and loved the hotel!!! Everything in the room was first class and the bed was "out of this world" comfortable. Everyone was so polite and friendly ... Todd at the front door gave us excellent advice on where to eat and go and Clara at the lobby coffee bar in the morning was just so friendly and efficient and had the most wonderful "warm" personality. We loved the candles lighting the lobby at night. We were pleased with the convenient location on Podyras Street which was within walking distance to most places we went to. We will definitely stay at the W on our next trip!!!

    Pseudo intellectual


    Background runway "music" annoying....Room maintenance poor....Would be a better hotel with adult supervision....Close to our regional office....We would return on someone else's nickel...



    When my partner and I feel we need a get a way a weekend at the W provides a bit of heaven ZOE's, Wrisky Blue and the Beds.

    Pleasant but please turn down the music


    A good location--as close as you want to get to the French Quarter--and bright pleasant smallish rooms. Halls are dark which I found offputting. Nice helpful staff. Nice bed. Nice toiletries.

    If you rate hotels by their bars...


    ...I would say that the Whiskey Blue bar pretty much tanks the rating of an otherwise fine hotel. We were a party of 10, and in a free-spending mood. One of us wanted to rearrange some of the seating because of his lower back pain making it impossible to sit in the low stools provided at this table, which was the only one large enough for all of us to sit together. We were then admonished by the bar manager that this was absolutely prohibited, and would create a nuisance to the other customers. This was hardly plausible, being a Sunday night, and we were almost the only people there. So we finished our round and quicky departed for the French quarter to re-start a cocktail hour that had been rudely derailed.

    Snooty, but nice


    Nice hotel - great beds. But the halls were a bit dark. FOlks were helpful with the exception of checking in - they have a lot of late check outs - which is very problematic. THe rooms were not ready at 4pm when we checked in and we were told to go walk around for 2 hours after sitting on an airplane for 2 1/2 hours. For such a fru fru hotel they could have made some accomodations and had a room ready!!! But I'd probably stay there again - great beds and they made sure the rooms were clear.

    Best Nights Sleep Ever In A Hotel !!!


    The W has the most wonderful beds! My husband and I spent two nights in September 2002. The W is very different than other hotels we have stayed in, but the staff is very friendly and we really enjoyed our stay. The service is great! The most wonderful bed, and the cookies and milk from room service for a late night snack was more than great! The room has everything you need to be comfortable, including deluxe robes and linens. The view of the Mississippi River was a treat. My husband and I both enjoyed this hotel. If you don't find the super comtempary style too distracting, this is a great place to lay your head down! We will stay here on our next trip to New Orleans.

    The W Hotel - Polydras St


    If you are looking for a great hotel with a great staff, stay a the W Hotel. This hotel is very modernized. It has a great pool, fitness center (on the sixth floor), and a nice restaurant. It is located across the street from Harrah's Casino. It is in walking distance to the Aquarium and Bourbon street. The rooms are very nice - featherbeds and goose down pillows nice. I really liked this hotel.

    ... and its segments. We took a break at the New Orleans City Park. It is beautiful and has so much to offer. We only had time to do a short walk through the sculpture park and to stop and eat some beignets. That was our first introduction to this sweet concoction and we made ourselves sick! YUM! The second half of the city tour explained Katrina, showed its devastation, and some of the recovery projects that are ...

    ... Although we weren’t able to tour it, it looked very interesting. It is also not in the best part of town.

    Once we exited the freeway, we made our way through the narrow streets and found a parking lot. It is located right near the Mississippi River and near the New Orleans Audubon Aquarium of the Americas. We took a few pictures by the river and then headed into town. Just as it was yesterday, it was full of people. ...

    ... every other building was a pub or a bar with loud live music playing, amazing atmosphere and this was during the daytime. It was a bit like a wilder raunchier version the Mardi Gras atmosphere we had seen in Galveston. People in brightly coloured outfits singing and dancing in the streets.

    One street had been closed to traffic and there were buskers everywhere, some in groups playing on washboards, ...

    ... Gras. Made us feel very at home. The house is quite small, bit of a culture shock coming from our past few places that have been huge, but it’s comfy and cosy. Only downside is there is no wifi, so we are learning to live like its 1989 again.

    We settled in and waited for Jake and Pete to arrive which they did around 7:30pm, and all very tired from our long days we ordered in pizza and got an early night! Such party animals we ...

The Cypress Trees in the freshwater swamps died because sea water invades freshwater, without the trees & grasslands there's nothing to break up & weaken the surges.
