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).

Great place to stay

slept most of the time at the hotel, a little noisy for my taste, noisy water pipes, wood floor and bed. Didn't have a TV control remote. Stayed at New Orleans marriot in Feb. for Mardi Gras on canal street, this hotel was as good as the marriot.

Ambassador Hotel

We only stayed one night to make an early appointment at Tulane Medical Center, it was an easy drive from this hotel location. The hotel is also in a great location for tourists, it was just a short walk to the Riverwalk, the French Quarter, and the casino. It's not the pristine, new hotel if that's what you want, but it is a very nice, historic building at a great rate.

Fun because of location

The hotel is described as a boutique hotel. It's got that, "our hotel was and old existing building previously, so we're going to show you unfinished brick walls all over. Fits in with the charm of that spot in New Orleans. It's good for first time to New Orleans. You get the feel of French Quarter (3 blocks down, 3 blocks across to Bourbon St) without the headaches (100 people drunk and walking around blocking traffic). Also it's close to Emeril's restaurant. And I got free valet parking. Didn't have to wait to check and get car either on a Sunday 11am. Probably willing to book French Quarter if I don't bring car.

Going down hill

When I stayed at this place in the summer of 2008 it was much better. Either I got a bad room or they have not keep the place up to previous standards which were pretty good 2 years ago. Maybe it's under new management.

French quarter is close by. Stay away from Bourbon St unless you want to experience cheap, college boy party atmosphere. Bourbon St betrays all that I remember as good about New Orleans. Go to Frenchman St just outside the quarter for a better time.
