The distinctive decor, art and antiques of New Orleans have combined with the luxury of the Ritz-Carlton to create the Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans. Grand ballrooms and exclusive garden courtyards filled with flowers and wrought iron furnishings show off an antebellum elegance. Luxury linens, goose down pillows and feather beds make overnights at the Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans a rejuvenating experience. The hotel's 25,000-square-foot destination spa has 22 magnolia-scented treatment rooms, offering services such as warm stone massage, sugar scrubs and hot towel shaves. The Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans' suites contains Italian marble baths, for a personal touch of decadence to pamper weary muscles.

NOLA vacation

We showed up to the hotel 2 hours before check in time, thinking that we would have to wait around and kill time. Surprisingly, we only waited about 10 min. for our room to be ready. The valet service was helpful and outstanding. The front desk attendant, Annette, made us feel very welcome, was funny, nice, and sweet. The room and view was amazing! I loved the Victorian touches. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone!

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Bourbon St. is 2 blocks down from this hotel. If you're looking for souvenir shops, restaurants, or even voodoo shops, you will find it all here. Bar hopping is definitely a mission because there are too many to visit. It's the place to be at night.

The best service staff ever!

I took my husband to NOLA as a surprise for his 50th birthday. The best decision I made was to spend a little extra money and stay at the Ritz. The staff in every area - from the bartenders to the back office - bent over backwards to make sure my husband enjoyed a birthday that he was less than happy about reaching! Absolutely beautiful corner room, happy and helpful staff, convenient location, excellent food and drinks at the bar.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Although I did a lot of research before we got there, we were given excellent recommendations on transportation, shopping and attractions. Trust the locals, the street cars are cheap, but it will take a lot longer to get to your destination than a taxi.

Thaksgiving at the Ritz

We arrived to a very friendly and hepful staff. My wife commented about the location of the room (looking at a roof) and immediately the bellman called the front desk and got a room that my wife and daughter loved. For me, it was all uphill from there.

Great New Orleans Location

The location was great a short walk to the French Quarter and the hotel staff was extremely helpful. The room was spacious and very clean. The concierge was helpful and gave excellent suggestions for dinner. I would stay here again.

Very good hotel

Great location, 10 mins walk to French Quarter. Hotel itself is great, breakfast buffet and afternoon tea are both five stars. The only thing I would suggest is the dinner entree can be better, not enough options to choose from.

The Ritz living up to high expectations

If you are heading to New Orleans and are willing to splurge a little, the Ritz is the ultimate choice. Excellent location (just an inch away from everything but quieter), terrific caring staff and immaculate rooms, this is the place to go. We had a great time and recommend upgrading to the club level.
