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.

A good deal...

Great location near clubs and French Quarter. For Tulane University visits we should have stayed closer, but the price was a bargain. Instead of making such a big deal of it, they should just add the stupid $8.00 'Internet Fee' to the cost of the room. Most of other negative reports are false... but not all light fixtures worked and checkout took a little long because the clerk did not know what deals other booking agencies had offered. Our 'free' river boat tour was 'canceled by the operator'.

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.

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.

Great Location

Great location for those needing to be near the convention center and 5 minute walk to center of french quarter. Area around hotel including the walk to the convention center and french quarter very clean and safe which was surprising considering the cost of the hotel. I have been to New Orleans several times and this was the cleanest and safest place I have stayed for the price. Bathrooms are very clean as well as the rooms. Wood floors and brick walls kept after renovations make it unique. Hotel staff were very nice. Please be aware of the $8 daily service charge (for wireless internet, fitness room access, etc) everyone is required to pay which is not included in the initial bill when you reserve a room. Could be upsetting if you did not know beforehand and don't even plan to use these services. Still, it's actually a good price for wireless access compared to most hotels. The wood floors although cool, can be a bit noisy if guests in adjacent rooms are wearing hard soled shoes since the walls can be a little thin. Otherwise, it is quiet.

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).
