"Perfect location beautiful property"
A small but beautiful quaint property, nice comfortable rooms, beautiful courtyard, as the city lets you carry your drinks and has too many homeless it is walkable its a little away from main party areas etc making it a safer area to stay in. The gym is state of the art and divided in three sections, though the pool is way too small but has a small heat jacuzzi as well. The spa is very nice but the class apart is davenport lounge where Jeremy davenport himself performs live few times a week. The food is excellent so is the service and in comparison to other ritz properties the price is not too escalated.
"Classic Hotel, Sizzling Bar Scene"
If you don't already know Ritz Carlton quality you haven't upgraded your travel enough. However, when in New Orleans you can find fun, safe, drinking and music (dancing too) at the Ritz Carlton bar. Check to see if the combo is playing the night you want to go and then enjoy the company of other tasteful people--it's definitely not the Bourbon Street crew.
"Outstanding location, top notch service."
If you can , do upgrade to the club level. It is well worth it. This is a historic building that became a Ritz Carlton Hotel. Because of that, don't expect to find a swimming pool. The center court yard is relatively small. We didn't really miss it because there is so much to do around here. Bourbon street one block away , a safe walk. The street cars that can be picked up a few minutes away and ridden all day for just $3 a person. Green and red line. It will take you to many different interesting locations. Including the Audubon Zoo and park, the famous cemetery, shopping and so on. Do have exact cash at hand or buy a ticket at a local Walgreens. The street cars will allow all kinds of beverages on board, but they have to have a top as not to spill. Now about the Ritz itself, what wonderful staff. Deidre on he club level has such a wealth of information about New Orleans , including its history. Also lots of fun and knows how to make a good drink. The food was outstanding, great local bites. Great Ritz, great location, outstanding staff. Nice historical rooms. We will be back!!!
"Business/Pleasure Trip in Style"
Where do I start! In the heart of New Orleans, just on the edge of some great antique shopping, I wandered around during the morning hours and enjoyed the paintings and sculptures for sale. Walking further, I encountered many eating establishments. On the Concierge recommendation I sat for a nice lunch and when done wandered around and found a bicycle rickshaw guy I felt comfortable with. He took me all over the pier and coast, French quarter, old residence areas full of fantastic architectural beauty, explain a lot of the areas like the part that used to be slave quarters, etc.. Eventually he took me back to the doorstep of my hotel. All in all 40 minutes of sightseeing whipping and winding through the streets of New Orleans and the French Quarter, Pointing out the history of New Orleans from a person who grew up there! What a time!!! As far as the Ritz, you know they will not be lacking, and overall, this was one of my more enjoyable trips anywhere. The food was fantastic, the music superb, and the ambiance, full of New Orleans Culture. I recommend the Ritz-New Orleans as HOME BASE EXTRODINAIRE to a truly fascinating place!
"Well done !"
Stayed during Mardi Gras and the all-star game. Even though the hotel was extremely busy, they did a good job handling the crowds. The only thing they could have improved upon is the front door staff and their willingness to help. Tried to get a taxi and they were no help...had to go inside to the valet drop off area and someone there chased down (literally) a taxi for us. Well done guys !! We'd stay here again.
