The Ambassador is a hotel rich in history. This pre-civil war building dates back to 1854, and was a coffee warehouse.
Harrah's Casino located across the street one block from the hotel.
A determined effort was made when renovating the hotel to retain the look and feel of New Orleans and this area. This included keeping the wood floors, exposed brick walls and wood beams. The National Park service has certified the restoration. The Ambassador Hotel has an Amenity Package Fee of $7.95 per night. This package includes unlimited local and long distance phone calls, wi-fi internet access, 24 hour fitness center usage, and up to $20,000 insurance on your in-room safe. This is a mandatory fee by the hotel. Valet Parking is $32 per night, plus tax (unless the cost is included in a special package). Renovations were done in 2005 on guestrooms and lobby as well as construction of a new restaurant.
Valet parking $32.00 per night. Special event parking $40.00 per night.

Ambassador Hotel offers Light Continental Breakfast included in the 9.95 fee per night.

Amenities at Ambassador 9.95 per night includes: Light Continental Breakfast, unlimited wi-fi throughout out hotel, unlimited local and long distance calling in room, 24 hr access to business center, fitness center, and in room safe.

Okay for the Price

Hotel is fairly close to both the Convention center and Bourbon Street (both approximately 6 blocks). Nothing really great other than that. The rooms are clean, however the furniture is old. The bed is not very comfortable either. May be a good hotel choice for budget travelers.

Location better than hotel

Great location. Lots to do near by within easy walking distance. Reception staff did not seem happy to do their job. Had to ask about every amenity. Did not seem happy to give information willingly. Rooms smelt damp and mouldy. Asked to change room. Never heard from anyone for the three nights that we were there. Only window in room looked into the hallway of the hotel. The room's front door had blinds on it. The door was not typical solid door, so hallway light comes into room making the room never dark.

Ambassador Hotel New Orleans

The rooms were beautiful...the bathrooms were a little dated, but overall, very nice. The location was perfect...we were just able to park our car in the lot across the street and walk everywhere. It was close to Bourbon Street and the Riverwalk. All in all it was a great hotel!
