The Hotel Le Méridien is one of the newest hotels in downtown New Orleans. The hotel is unique and luxurious with easy access to the airport and all downtown has to offer. The downtown area has been revitalized in the last ten years since Hurricane Katrina hit. It is full of great restaurants and hotels and the newest hotel fits right in.
The former W Hotel went under a $29 million dollar remodel that took years to complete and the outcome is The Hotel Le Méridien. It has a high-rise building with 410 modern and sleek rooms. The entire hotel has a cute boutique style to it with nice European interior décor that gives an international yet local New Orleans feel.
The lobby is known as the hub includes a bar with comfortable seating. The LMNO Restaurant inside the hotel serves traditional New Orleans favorites and is decadent. The Le Méridien is a very calming place that makes it a great escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Plus it is only about 20 miles from the airport. Just beware that the valet parking is pretty expensive, starting at $42 dollars.
The rooms are very simple elegant. Each room is very modern with minimal furniture and everything is extremely comfortable. The hotel has 22 suites and some of the rooms have fantastic views of the Mississippi river. Other rooms have a view of downtown New Orleans.
The Hotel Le Méridien is conveniently located in downtown New Orleans with and is in the middle of everything. It really is the perfect place for tourists. It is also an ideal place to stay when in town for business since a lot of the rooms come with an open workspace. The hotel hasn’t been open very long, but so for the hotel has not disappointed.
