The cherry on the top of your icecream!

Every staff member was very helpful and friendly, you can tell they love their jobs and care for guests. They only have Valet parking, so if you park valet and need something later in your car its not problem for them to retreve your car, JUST TIP, there parking garage is two blocks away and they are very friendly! Everything you need is on property or a block away. Hotel is VERY safe but very upscale, with a posh/sheek appeal. Large mirrors, modern fixtures and design, bar/lounge area and night club on sight. Mini bar/fridge came fully stocked, large flat screen tv's, ipod radio stand, great views and room was in perfect condition. Restaurant 24hours, and they can even bring you breakfast at time of your choosing with a full menu of items. I haven't seen this kind of service anywhere but at resorts. Excellent place just to get away even as a local I felt like I was on vacation for my best friends wedding.

Harrah's Casino is across the street. Two blocks away is the Aquarium, Two shopping malls (Canal Place and the River Walk), Take a Boat tour to the plantations, blocks from Bourbon Street and many shops along the way!

Will be missed....

Every time I have friends come into town that want the downtown experience, I take them to the W. It is a great hotel and you get what you pay for. The staff is always super friendly and helpful and the location can't be beat. I sincerely hope that if/when it becomes Le Meridian things don't change.
