1 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

As of today, 24 January 2015, this hotel is undergoing major construction in the lobby. Most of lobby is curtained off. Nowhere to sit except the bar, loud construction noise is overwhelming and reception at a temp desk in bar. Half the elevators are reserved for construction so very slow service. Hotel does nothing to apologize or accommodate you. Check... More

We suffered through many bad experiences, one after the other, which made us abruptly check out of this place after one uncomfortable night. Forget the construction, that is simply a headache, the walls in the rooms are paper thin, the wallpaper in conjunction with the rug made me feel like I was in a jail cell. I booked the luxury...

Great location, great service, and a quiet, room up to the Le Meridien standard. I had visited in Oct 2014 when the hotel was still under renovation and I'm glad to see the upgrades have completed and the hotel is now officially open under the new brand.

Our recent visit to New Orleans included a one night stay at the hotel and we will be back. They are still renovating the front lobby, but our room was comfortable, clean and peaceful. The decor is simply beautiful it's more of an Artist style. The design of the room is neat and comfortable. Great location if you want to... More

I booked 2 double rooms via Hotels.com during a Cyber sale and got the rooms for $100/night. I thought the pricing was great for the location. Location: Right across the street from the Harrah's casino. That's either really good or really bad, depending on how much you like to gamble. :) It's also only a few blocks to the French... More

First let me say that this hotel is in a great spot. It is right next to the casino, two blocks from Woldenberg park, and a bunch of museums. The french quarter and Jackson square are quick walks too. However, this is an average hotel at best. I truly can't believe this is a Le Meridien. Not sure what Starwood... More

I really enjoyed my stay this past weekend. I read that the staff was bad and the noise from construction was bad but when i called i was told all the rooms were done and they were only working on the Lobby. I was a bit worried after reading all the comments but was surprisingly impressed by the hotel. I... More

Rebranded from "W" to Le Meridian . Room was small but comfortable. Beds comfortable, bathroom is small but adequate. Our room had a"sofa-like" seating area under the window which was nice, also had a refrigerator in room. Staff very friendly and helpful. Lots to do within walking distance. Valet parking a little pricey @ $ 45 a day.

very plain, i think the bartenders Travis and Jason are the stars but that Crystal at the front desk overnight does it all, since there's no way to connect to room service or housekeeping, everything has to go through front desk and my order got garbled, got pie, then ice cream then spoon. It was a mess but breakfast pretty... More
