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).

Good deal

Decent place and friendly staff. There were many amenities--compact but comprehensive gym, free printing, and free wireless. However, the breakfast was lame, the elevators function at random, and the lighting in the room was less than desired. Still, a better deal and a beautiful interior than many nearby hotels.

New Orleans getaway

I loved the historic feeling of the place. Georgeous decor and ambience. Convenient to the French Quarter and we only took a cab once to get across town. The bed wasn't the most comfortable, but the room was really cute. No view from the window, but that helped it stay dark for easier sleep. I would definitely stay here again!

Great location

My daughter was in a wedding in New orleans & I traveled with her. We weren't able to check-in until 4:00 pm. The time kept changing for check-in. Then, after 4:00pm when we did check-in, we were given the wrong room, not 2 beds. Had to bring all of our luggage back down to receive the correct room. Then, had to wait again. The room we received smelled like smoke & my daughter & I do not smoke. The wedding started @ 5:30pm, so we weren't able to receive another room, because had to rush to get dress & get to the wedding. So, my daughter and I were inconvenient in the above way.

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.
