Qwest will host its first full-blown analyst meeting since the days of Joe Nacchio on Feb. 25.  And the Denver-based company is going all out.

The meeting will be held at the five-star St. Regis Hotel in New York, which boasts a standard room rate of $750 a night.  It will be held in the hotel's rooftop ballroom from about lunchtime to 5 p.m.

Up to 200 attendees are expected, including financial and industry analysts and media.

Scheduled speakers include Qwest CEO Ed Mueller and chief financial officer John Richardson.

The last time Qwest held an analyst day was in December 2001 in Denver, said Qwest spokeswoman Diane Reberger.

Nacchio served as CEO from 1997 to June 2002.  Under his successor, Dick Notebaert, Qwest held analyst breakfast meetings.  Notebaert retired last year.
