Historic hotel with contemporary flair near Riverwalk, downtown sites

Three historic coffee warehouses were combined and repurposed to create this unique Arts District hotel. Modern appointments join original hardwood floors, beamed ceilings and recycled wrought iron for a completely contemporary feel. The National Park Service has certified the restoration, and the result is a one-of-a-kind hotel in a great location.  The hotel has easy access the convention center, French Quarter or cruise terminal.  Riverwalk and its paddleboat rides are at the doorstep.

Highlights
  • In-room spa services
  • 24-hour fitness center
  • New Orleans Saints-themed sports bar
Rooms

The Ambassador has been recognized for its re-use of materials. The old-made-new element is apparent in its 175 guest rooms with kings, doubles or queens. In the rooms, wrought iron four-poster beds welcome each guest.  Gleaming hardwood floors, exposed brick walls and high timber ceilings lend an open feeling. All rooms feature ceiling fans, oversized executive desks, irons and ironing boards, coffee makers, safes and high-speed Internet access (covered in resort fee).

Features

The Arts District location is convenient for tourists and business travelers alike.  Downtown New Orleans, The French Quarter, Central Business District, Riverwalk, museums and convention center are an easy walk away.  The developers took great pains to retain the original look of the former coffee warehouses. Visitors can soak up the historic feel while enjoying modern conveniences. Saints fans can walk to the Superdome. Valet parking is available (fees apply).

For the price, it was good enough.

I should have know that $89 was too good for a great place but the hotel did the best they could with an old coffee warehouse. The bathroom had black mold on most of the ceiling tiles and in the grout in the shower. We were welcomed by a roach coming out from underneath the bed one night when we arrived in for the night. I didn't make any complaints because for the price it was doable.

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!

Dirty

Customer service was less than average. I asked for my room to be cleaned more thoroughly since i found trash under my bed and a shirt in a corner. The trash and shirt remained there after my complaint for another 3 days. Definitely lacking in service and cleanliness.

A very unique place. Beautiful building and rustic but welcoming rooms. The hardwood floors are gorgeous and the staff is more than helpful. and you cant ask for a better location. This one of my favorite places in NOLA to stay.

Below average

The service of the hotel is okay. Good thing about this hotel is the location. It's only 10 min walk from the convention center and 5-10 minutes walk to French Quarter. The bad thing about this hotel is they only equipped with SOAP, no shampoo and no conditioner and any other things. It makes a lot of traveler very inconvenience, especially the weather in NO is humid and hot when you will really want a good shower

Good location for everything. Walking distance for most attractions. No room service. No in room refrigerator. Very helpful staff. No shopping mall in the area that wasn't high end.
