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 Location...but....

Great location to Harrah's Casino, Canal Street amd Bourbon Street. We arrived after check in time androom was not ready. The bathroom in our room was dirty and in disrepair. Broken shower tile, dirty shower curtain, dirty floor, light missing protective covering. The beds were a little soft for my liking. For the most part, staff friendly and helpful. Good rustic feel.

Disappointed

The hotel had trouble finding the terms under which we booked the hotel and took a while to confirm that the website indeed says free valet parking. They also charge a mandatory fee of about $8 which is supposedly for unlimited Wi-Fi, but our room did not get a signal at all, had trouble connecting to the internet even through an ethernet cable and still, when we asked for a refund of the fee since we did not receive the service we were charged for, the staff were unhelpful and refused to give us one. The so called "Continental" Breakfast consisted of store-bought mini-muffins and cut up coffee cake and coffee, there was no tea or even hot water, no place to sit down for breakfast and not to mention the noise from the pipes in the ceiling.

The locals try to avoid the touristy flavor of Bourbon St. and instead go to the clubs on Frenchman.

Good Value

Nothing Special about this place. For the price it was in a great location, walk to convention center, riverwalk, and FQ. Resturant attached had average food and was a decent value. The only thing that was wierd is that many of the rooms have no windows. Strange feeling inside....but OK if your only there to sleep.

Minimally Adequate

The staff were wonderful and courteous, and the location was perfect for my needs (CBD and warehouse district which is great for dinners that aren't overrun with tourists). However I had a first floor room which did not resemble the photos on the website. They are going for the rustic charm - lobby hits its that mark, but the room fell way short and was just junky. The carpet was absolutely disgusting and the bathroom was not particularly clean either (lots of mold in the shower grout, and around fixtures). It wasn't worth switching hotels for me but this hotel also wasnt worth what I paid for it. With so many other options in the area I most likely won't stay here again.

Ambassador Review

You can hear people upstairs pretty clearly but not having anyone next door was great. Some fees on internet and phone service was unexpected and didnt like that at all.

a good stay.

This is my 8th or 9th stay at the Ambassador.. Most of the stays have been complaint free.. It is a good location, clean and friendly.. usually quiet, this time not so quiet. stayed on the first floor and could hear people talking, yellinig and laughing, most of the night till at least 2 in the morning. I couldn't really tell where it was coming from so i did not call the desk.. I will go back and next time i will ask for a different area to the hotel.

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.

Old Charm, Bad Smell

The room was as described. It had a funny smell, but there was an Ionizer in the room once we turned it off it was much better. It was very noisy, but so is New Orleans. One Major complaint was parking. It was supposed to be free with the deal we booked. What they fail to tell you is its first come first serve. So we had to park next door and pay 30.00
