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).

Old style comfort, would stay again

Loved the historic quality of the rooms and hotel. Parking can be expensive (about 29 a night across the street, 36 for valet), but we were able to park on the street in the 2 hour and get away with it (the clerk said they sometimes ticket, sometimes they don't-we may have just lucked out). The hotel bar was reasonable and poured good martinis, and I enjoyed a perfect catfish po'boy. Our bath tub was huge, so wife poured herself a hot one. Very close the riverwalk, and in mild weather perfect walking distance to French Quarter.

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).

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.

Enjoyable Stay

The Ambassador Hotel did not disappoint on my vacation. I would recommend it if you are looking for a location that is right in the middle of the action of New Orleans. It is extremely close to the casino, and only about a 3 minute walk to Canal St. and a 10-15 minute walk to the St. Louis Cathedral. Finding the place was simple and the check-in was fast and simple, as was the valet parking. My room was on the 1st floor with carpet, and was clean upon arrival with no noticeable mildew, bugs, or stains of any kind. It has really nice high ceilings and a window as promised... but it was a view of an air conditioning unit. No big deal. Everyday the maids cleaned our rooms and provided fresh towels and linens. The staff was friendly and helped out when they were asked. Never got to check out the breakfast, was always out to eat in the morning. Overall, I got exactly what I paid for. Positives greatly outweighed the negatives. Only complaints was the noise made at night of guests walking on the wood floors above us (the air conditioning mostly silenced the noise) and that the maid came to our door twice the day we checked out, and 10am & 11am, to ask us if we were leaving yet.A little too pushy for me.

Eat breakfast at Mother's restaurant. The line can grow quickly, but moves fast. Walk out the hotel doors, take a left, and you will run right into it when you cross the street.
