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).

I Suppose It Depends On What You're Looking For...

We were absolutely delighted by what we found for the uber-amazing price we paid for our stay at the Ambassador! We partook of the free breakfast every morning and it kept us going for hours, we slept soundly each night, and enjoyed the quirky mix of old-and-new touches in this hotel. We were able to walk easily from the front doors to the public transportation we were using or even straight into the French Quarter itself, and the amazing Mother's restaurant is barely a half a block away! Now, for the downside: if you like your bed to feel like it's brand-new, your room phone to work, and every detail of your room to be in perfect order, this is probably not the place for you. But if you are an easy-going, take-it-as-it-comes budget traveler that just wants a convenient, affordable place to lay your head, you will hopefully be just as thrilled as we were!

If you're looking for big portions of delicious local food at a really reasonable price, you have to visit "Mother's Restaurant" about half a block back toward Canal Street from the Ambassador's front entrance! Fabulous!

Almost like home....

We enjoyed our stay. It was comfortable and convenient. It reminded me of the old New Orleans style hotel with updated decor. I prefer the wood floors to carpet.....carpet in a hotel always seems so dirty and grungy, it is disgusting to walk on it with bare feet. The rooms were a little small, but we were only in the room at night to watch a little TV and sleep, so it was perfect. The only complaint I had was at check-out on Sunday morning when everyone was checking out at the same time, they didn't have more staff getting cars. Seems like they could hire extra staff for those few hours who could work mostly off of tips than anything else. Thank you.

This hotel is convenient for dining and shopping, but also less expensive than most and a great place to stay if you just want a quiet place to get away.

good location, reasonable price

Good location - Canal St, Riverfront and French Quarter are in walking distance; vintage style. No free parking available, valet costs $32 + tax per night. Josie, the guide at the desk in the lobby, is a very amiable person.

Historic Look Location

If you're looking for a place to stay with a historic feel and take a step back in time, this is a great place. Despite this historic feel, it has very nice modern amenities, which is a big plus.

Great location. Clean. Would recommend it. Hotel staff were friendly, but the free breakfast was not worth waking up for.

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).

Not the Ritz but good enough

This hotel is in a great location. Staff was great and Pete the bellhop treated you like you owned the place. This was our second stay and enjoyed both times. We think for the price it a great value.
