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).

Comfortable homey feeling

We stayed only one night with our granddaughters and it was very comfortable. We were able to walk to our destinations with New Orleans and not incur additional costs for parking or cabs. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We will stay here again.

Great hotel with some character

Away from the hustle and bustle of Bourbon street and the French Quarter, but still close enough to walk to everything, this hotel has a lot of charm and character. The only gripe I have about this hotel are the walls are thin so you can here your nearby guests if they tend to talk loud. Otherwise my stay here (for a work convention) was great. Wifi service isn't the best (especially at $7.95/day) but the fee also includes free local and long-distance calls. Awesome sports bar connected to the hotel was a pleasant surprise, perfect for sports fans like me. Ask for a room with a view (or windows).

NEVER Book a room at the Ambassador

Never book a room at the Ambassador again. The excuse was they had mechanical problems. They refused to refund our money and moved us to an old run down sister hotel called the Queen and Crescent that was a dump. The elevators didn't work so we had to use the stairs to go up and down. The rooms were run down and unkept. The staff was rude and acted like they didn't care about anything. The final insult was the valet service took over an hour to retrieve our vehicle and the hotel manager was rude and physically threatened us and had to be restrained by his co workers. We will never book a room at the Ambassador again. Too many other quality hotels in New Orleans to be subjected to rude staff and run down accomadations.

Recent stay at Ambassador Hotel

The room was clean although smaller than most, but this is a very old building. Restoration of many parts of the building make it look nice. This location was very quiet and not too far to walk to the French Quarter.

It's easy in

The hotel staff and, valet were exceptional. All questions were answered immediately and, all concerns were addressed properly. The room was not First Class but, Second Class was fine for the money.

Restaurants in the French quarter were approx. 10-15 minutes walking time. The walking area was safe and, very populated. The free valet was used only once during the stay, as, parking was very expensive.
