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 stay. Good getaway

We have stayed here before so this was our third of forth stay. It's a wonderful location, rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff very friendly and helpful. We also enjoy the breakfast . They added a new waffle maker since we were there last and they were very good. It was a good upgrade. It was a wonderful stay and we will stay there again.

Great value

The hotel was a good value for the money in that it was in a convenient location and felt very safe. Very short walk to the casino. Also an easy walk to the French Quarter. The room was spacious. In fact it was actually a mini suite in that it had a separate sitting area with television, sofa and desk. The bedroom had a comfortable bed and television with nice bathroom. My two negatives are that we could hear the person above us walking around on the wooden floors - from bedroom to bathroom and back again - knew their every move in the morning. Also, there was no window in the room. The building is a restored warehouse type of building with charm but with those two drawbacks. The room was spacious and the hotel was charming. Definitely for the money and location it is a great value.

Amazing!

Huge room that felt more like a suite. Great location to uptown, magazine street, garden district, french quarter and Emerils is only three blocks away! Great value and recommended to anyone traveling to New Orleans.

good price for the location

the only thing I did not like was the fact we had to pay for telephone/internet services and fitness center which we never used. I think you should be only charged if you use it. We stayed for 3 days and had to pay the $7.95 for each day for these services
