Rated 4 out of 5 by BevM Excellent Hotel - Abysmal Wifi
I recently stayed here on a weekend trip to New Orleans. The hotel is lovely. My room was very well appointed and the bed was extremely comfortable. The shower was also wonderful.
Staff on check-in, check-out and at the bar were also fantastic. The hotel is a short walk from the quarter, without the smell and noise of Bourbon Street.
Two complaints though: 1. The wifi is terrible. I was not trying to download anything, just surf the web and make some dinner reservations, and it was all but impossible to manage.
2. When I asked about a good greasy spoon type restaurant for breakfast, the concierge's recommendation was probably the worst meal I have had all year (Jimmy J's). The rice and beans were not worth eating, and my companions' food was equally uninspired. In New Orleans, you just expect more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pia4 Fantastic stay!
This Le Meridien property raises the bar for others! We had our first LM experience days before traveling to NOLA - and it was awful. We almost changed hotels because we were so disappointed with the LM brand. Fortunately, we spoke with the New Orleans property before our arrival and they were very reassuring. We kept the reservation and we had a wonderful stay!
The staff is well trained and genuinely friendly. The property has a great location and valet, although costly, came in handy with all of our in & outs in the rain.
The food on site was great. The room was clean and surprisingly QUIET! We did not need concierge but there was always someone available and helping guests eat and explore their way thru NOLA.
We come to NOLA often and will absolutely stay here again. Thank-you!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Suzy Disappointing at best
About two years ago I had a very bad experience at the Westin in New Orleans, so when planning to visit again, I was pleased to hear there was now a Le Meridan. Boy was I surprised when I arrived and realized it was the same property! The rooms are still extremely small - this isn't NYC - and the service in the F&B areas was VERY slow and rigid. The wait staff at LMNO acted like they all just started yesterday, including the manager.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Not2day This hotel was very unsanitary.
To start when I arrived to check in my room wasn't available and had to relocate me to another hotel for the night. I returned the following day when I made it to my room I noticed large brown dog droppings on the carpet. It appeared to be traces of it on the comforter as well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by PaulAPavlou23 Stingy practices, stay away from breakfast!
This is by far the hotel with the stingiest practices in terms of breakfast and SPG recognition. Not only they do not offer continental breakfast in their breakfast menu, the items are overly expensive and bland. And the SPG continental breakfast in the room is a joke, the hotel only provides $14 per person, offers 3 pieces of pastries, and by the time they charge room service fee, taxes and a mandatory 20% service tip, you pay $25 for 3 pieces of pastries and the hotel gives back $14. You are better off going outside the hotel! And given the quality of the breakfast, you are better off!
