I miss you already! What a great stay starting with Nikki at the Front Desk. She welcomed me into the hotel like you would with a close friend into your own home.
I don't typically sleep well in hotels like I do at home in my own bed but I have to say, it was my BEST sleep ever in a hotel. I slept through the night without even waking up once until my alarm went off. This has never happened to me before.
Over the next couple of days, I met Lauren and Franquie and felt instantly drawn to them. I tell you, the staff are truly magnetic in their personalities. As busy as they were, they remembered me when they saw me. I was given terrific recommendations of what to see and where to go. Nikki, thanks for the Cafe du Monde recommendation. I am still craving those beignets!
The hotel was quiet, clean and very comfortable. In my opionion, the staff and the bed / sleep experience really made my stay so memorable. Rather than staying in downtown in New Orleans and pay the exorbitant prices for staying there and for parking, I chose to stay in the suburbs just 1/2 hour away in Slidell. Free parking, free hot breakfast, free internet and a salt water pool to enjoy. The location is great just off I-10, a straight shot from downtown N.O. Also, it is so close to the Stennis Museum and to get to Mississippi in minutes. It was a great central point to the areas I wanted to visit.
The house keeping staff were great and cleaned and tidied my room as I requested. You can see the pride in the work of the house keeping staff. I was truly left with the most memorable impression of the hotel by Wade, the night staff member. I asked for a 2:15am wake-up call before going to bed on my last night. When I reached the lobby by elevator just before 3am, Wade had just brewed fresh coffee for me before hitting the road...! Really?! I was so impressed and just when I thought it couldn't get better, he walked me to my car since it was still very dark outside. Slidell is very safe and never felt in any danger but Wade says he walks everyone to their car at night. I think it's the body guard nature in him.
The best first impression and the most lasting impression...
Thanks for a great stay and Slidell / New Orleans are just amazing cities. Loved the French Quarter, Decatur Street, Bourbon Street and all the sites in the area. So much history, architecture, music and fabulous gumbo and creole dishes. I will be back because I just couldn't get enough on this short visit. Louisiana, you left a memorable footprint on my heart :)
