"I just wanted to drop you and your staff at Le Pavillon a note of thanks. Our wedding reception was beautiful  and flawless thanks to all the hard work you all put in. I would not have changed a thing! I hope many more brides and grooms to come, choose Le Pavillon to make their fairy tale wedding come true too!"

Love, Jason and Nicole, November 15, 2003
"I am truly sorry that it took me so long to thank you and your staff for the most enjoyable stay at your lovely hotel. I have had the privilege to stay at hotels around the world and rarely, if ever, have I enjoyed myself more or been treated as well.

While everyone connected with the hotel went out of their way to make my stay special, I would remain remiss if I did not mention Justin in particular. Justin repeatedly went out of his way to gather information for me, make reservations for me, and generally make sure that I was well taken care of. He is, in the truest sense of the word, a "keeper". Thank you again and I look forward to staying with you for Mardi Gras."

"Since our return to Minnesota in May, I have told countless friends and acquaintances (including my hair stylist and dentist) about our delightful experience at 'Le Pav.' Our trip would not have been nearly as enjoyable if it weren't for 'the Belle of New Orleans.' I will always remember the fun chats I had with some of your gracious staff. Of course, Justin was SO helpful to us! (He seemed to genuinely care whether we would find a good restaurant and have a good time while in NO, LA.) We actually ended up eating three of our meals from room service AND three in the Crystal Room since your cuisine there is delicious. Y' all do a great job! We look forward to our next visit!"

Sincerely, (guest) Burgess, September 6, 2003

"Last week I had the pleasure of staying at your hotel. I arrived on Monday the 27th, and left on Thursday, staying in Room 806. I have traveled very extensively throughout my life and have not written to any hotels previously. It was most obvious to me that your establishment is exceptionally well run.

From the moment I checked in until the moment I left, everything was as it should be. Albert met me at the front door and made me feel welcome. Marion at the front desk was most efficient and friendly. Melissa, the concierge, was most helpful on several occasions, as was Justin. Carlos, in the dining room, was the perfect waiter. Cleanliness was perfect.

What struck me the most was the friendliness of your staff, not the superficial smile that one often receives, but genuine professionalism and enthusiasm. Please pass my thanks on to your staff. I look forward to my next visit to New Orleans and your hotel."

"Several weeks ago my sister and I had the pleasure of staying at Le Pavillon in New Orleans. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning. While there, I had an opportunity to talk with Mr. Albert Moses II, your Employee of the Year for 2004. Your organization chose well when they selected Mr. Moses for such an honor. The service he provided was excellent. However, I am writing to you about something that I think goes well beyond providing good service to your guests.

I was fortunate to have an opportunity to converse at length with Mr. Moses. When he described the events surrounding the receipt of his award, I was deeply touched. He spoke with such pride about his association with the Preferred Hotel Organization. His knowledge of the history of Le Pavillon, his loyalty and appreciation to your company, and the satisfaction he takes in his work was clearly evident. I came away from our conversation with a lighter heart and a renewed sense of faith in the goodness of people. How very refreshing it was to know that there are corporations like yours that honor and respect the work of their employees.

Thank you for providing such a delightful encounter. There are many nice hotels, but it is rare indeed to find an employee of a hotel who leaves such a positive and lasting impression on a guest. We will return to Le Pavillon whenever we are in New Orleans and we will choose Preferred Hotels when traveling.

Best regards, (guest) Payne, November 19, 2004
"I am writing to let you know how pleased we were with our stay at your beautiful hotel and to say thank you to Nicki Fourroux, Gwen DeFraites, Greg Smith and his staff. They were all absolutely wonderful!!!

It is my responsibility to locate the finest hotel possible with suitable meeting space to host a training session for judicial assistants and stay within our budget. Nicki worked with me to get us a reduced lodging rate so I could accommodate the 60 participants. I let her know what our budget was and she somehow worked it out! When the assistants arrived, they began phoning me to 'rave' about what a wonderful hotel I had selected. Some even went so far as to phone their mothers to say: 'Mom, you should see this bathroom!' I can't tell you how pleased I was. Le Pavillon is one of the finest hotels I have ever stayed in; and the 'peanut butter and jelly hour?' - magnificent idea!

Gwen De Fraites and Greg Smith were always around making sure everything was going according to plan and of course it was. It was just perfect. The reception we had on Sunday evening was a great 'ice breaker.' Once the assistants began arriving at the reception and saw that it was an informal gathering, they phoned their spouses to invite them to come. It all worked out great and the food was excellent. Greg Smith 'throws a good party.'

Thanks again to Nicki, Gwen, Greg and the lovely Le Pavillon. Our workshop was a big success. I don't know how I can 'top' this one!"

Sincerely, (guest) Shirley, June 8, 2004

"I felt, upon seeing your hotel on the Internet, that it was a special place. I decided to treat myself to your special touch of elegance and was overwhelmed with the graciousness of all your staff, the beautiful sitting areas, dining room, and the individual rooms for guests. Beautiful and elegant! It had the feel of a 'destination hotel', one of those turn-of-the-19th-century places where people went and just stayed for months!! I felt truly cared about and very comfortable. The dining was elegant and the wait staff was efficient with a commitment to my enjoyment of the meal. I ate there more than once. My hotel room was beautiful, comfortable, clean and decorated to create a wonderful memory. Thank you so much for keeping the charm and grace of a beautiful 'destination hotel'. - When I return to New Orleans I will look forward to another stay with you. I will certainly recommend Le Pavillon to my friends and colleagues."
