This hotel is absolutely gorgeous. As you would expect from a Waldorf Property the service was also excellent. They have 2 bars and 2 restaurants in the hotel as well as a pool menu on the weekends--so lots of on-site options.
Here is what annoyed me the entire trip--CHURCH BELLS. I didn't realize that I hate church bells until this trip, but when they start ringing at 7am (60 seconds) and again at 7:30 (15 seconds) and then that repeats for until 10pm. I stayed in tower one in room 11008. All of my colleagues in Tower 1 said they church bells woke them up every morning. Colleagues in Tower 2 said they could barely hear them.
The event space was quite nice. We had about 150 attendees at the Summit and the space worked perfectly to provide enough space yet keep us contained. The only issue was that there wasn't room for meal in the event space so we had to use the Blue Room (which is gorgeous). The food served at the event, however, as a bit of a let down. Overall, great for an event and definitely worth returning too!
This place is great for a work event, but I would choose to stay a bit further away from the French Quarter if it was a R&R trip. The French Quarter is loud anyway and the addition of the Church Bells drove me bonkers!
