Le Meridien New Orleans-2

Le Méridien New Orleans has an advantageous location: it’s across the street from Harrah’s Casino, a quick jaunt to Canal Street, about 10 minutes on foot to the French Quarter as well as being close to The Shops at Canal Place and the Mississippi River, where you can stroll off those extra calories from all the amazing eateries you’ll dine at.

In keeping with their Parisian roots, Le Méridien prints all in-room material in both English and French. Staff really see to a good experience here, which added to my NOLA stay.

Rooms

The 410 sophisticated, modern rooms include artwork and a nice variety of lighting and seating options. There’s also a working desk, 55″ flat-screen TV, in-room safe and mini-fridge. Both wired and wireless Internet access is available (for a surcharge).

 Le Meridien suite

Le Méridien suites add separate living rooms; higher-end suites offer panoramic river and skyline views.

New Orleans-42  Le Meridien bathroom

Bathrooms contain a few different lighting options, something I always appreciate in a hotel room. Malin + Goetz are one of my favourite body and bath lines, so I was happy to discover them on the marble counter here.

Amenities

In each room is a grey felt holder containing a voucher for a free coffee at the bar as well as a complimentary culture pass for the Ogden Museum of Southern Art (I highly recommend this one! Check out our NOLA to-do guide for details).

 Le Meridien pool

A 24-hour fitness center and outdoor swimming pool are located on the fourth floor.

Dining

LMNO on the second floor is open for buffet and a la carte breakfast (allow a bit of time for a la carte orders as service can be slow).

 Le Meridien bar

Inside the lobby is a lovely bar for cocktail hour. I happened to check in right when a cookie and hot chocolate cart was set up next to that bar.

Sleeps

Signature Le Méridien pillow-up mattresses and cool-to-the-touch duvet covers are truly welcoming after long days of touring the city. I slept pretty well but a minor quibble: there is a train that passes by in the area at night so you’ll likely hear it once or twice (unless you’re lucky enough to sleep through it).

Le Meridien check-in

Le Méridien New Orleans is located at 333 Poydras Street in New Orleans.

My stay was compliments of Le Méridien and New Orleans Tourism. Opinions, as always, are my own.
