"Club Level is great experience!"
The Ritz in New Orleans is perfectly located and well appointed. If you can afford the extra cost, being in the club level makes the stay so much more enjoyable. The food is delicious and send almost all day. It won't replace the fabulous restaurants, but will tide you over between reservations. The daytime staff is very informative and will help you find just what to do if you aren't quite sure. It's a nice place to relax with friends with a glass of wine, after you have had your fill of Bourbon Street, shopping and other sites.
"Badly needs upgrad"
Badly needs upgrade, reminds me of the old hotels of the past : dark carpets, dark rooms ... everything dark . What a different decor from eg the laguna niguel ritz . If I had to stay in New Orleans again , I would run to watch Windsor court
"Noisy & Loud"
Everyone told me, when visiting New Orleans not to stay near Bourbon Street because of the noise. The Ritz Carlton (along with the Waldorf Astoria) have the best reputation. We stayed at the Ritz Carlton for five nights on the Club Level. We were shocked because the noise wasn't really outside (although this isn't a quiet hotel) but on the inside. We were sharing the Club with Convention delegates who had taken half the 80+ Club Level rooms. These guests clearly were here to party and the Club Lounge was the place to be given all drinks are included. Loud, noisy, boorish guests occupied the lounge day and night and the noise level was incredible. Most Ritz Carlton Club's we've used around the world are calm, tranquil places where you can escape the hustle and bustle of the hotel. Here was the opposite. We took breakfast downstairs in the main hotel restaurant which was quieter and generally kept away from the bun fights in the Lounge itself. We appreciate that the noise level may be higher in the US to Europe but this was terrible. Why the hotel could not set aside one of their rooms for 'ordinary' club level guests I don't know. Mind you with Bourbon Street around the corner maybe people come to New Orleans to get hammered. So perhaps that is really what the Club Lounge is for! Guest rooms were fine, the Concierge service worked well; the Spa was good; and the Jazz (if you could get a table - no reservations for hotel/Club level guests) was wonderful. However this was not the same type of Ritz Carlton Club that we've used in Hong Kong, Dallas, Tenerife or Vienna recently.
"Suite 511 poor value and not up to Ritz standards"
Front desk should advise guests that Canal St side is noisy until late into night. Master bathroom is large but without any separation among toilet, sink area, and shower. Makes it impractable for simultaneous use. Sofa bed impractable for human use unless you ask housekeeping to bring a feather bed. (And why didn’t they think to take the initiative for our grandson')
It is a nice hotel conveniently located to a lot of the main attractions. I find this Ritz like others a bit classic. The room was clean and large, but it could do with a refresher. I was there for work so didn't get a chance to use any of the amenities. The staff were friendly. The food was ok, typical hotel conference food.
