4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Just visited for a conference. This is a nice upscale hotel but has some quirks. The rooms are fairly standard. What I do not like is that there is no coffee maker in them. I just do not understand why "luxury" hotels think we want to have to get dressed to head to the lobby for coffee or pay room... More

Lucile who checked us in gave a free upgrade to the top floor 23rd room 2317, wonderful layout corner room. We are going to enjoy our stay and will update our review... More

I booked on a great deal with Hotwire! I certainly should not comment anything negative from me for what I paid. But if I had paid more. I like a place that has coffee free in the lobby without dealing with anybody. They did give a free voucher but in the morning I prefer self serve. I can understand not... More

I was very impressed with this hotel from the moment I walked through the door. The rooms were large and spacious and very quiet. The staff was unbelievably helpful and friendly. The location is great. It's not in the French Quarter, but close enough to walk. Also very close to some pretty awesome museums and restaurants. Highly recommended.

There's no denying this is an excellent hotel despite its pretentiousness. However, without an expense account to pay the high cost of everything at the hotel, the hotel should be avoided by the average traveler. Rooms, surprisingly, are small...four people in a room would be quite crowded...larger rooms can be found at most highway motels. However, the beds are quite... More

Centrally located small hotel with comfortable feel. We enjoyed staying here for a few days in March. Across from Harrahs so you can still gamble without staying in the casinos. Would also be good if cruising; dock was not far at all.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week in April. The property is beautiful with that boutique hotel feel which we love. Upon check in we waited in line for 20 minutes because only one counter was open. (The concierge was standing there doing nothing a few feet away, maybe cross train him so that your guests are taken... More

We love staying in this area as it is just a few blocks from where our son lives. The hotel where we have always stayed was booked, so we thought we would try Le Meridien. We had checked it out when it was a W and were totally put off, however, after reading the tripadvisor reviews, thought we would give... More
