This is my second time staying at the Ritz Carlton in New Orleans, and it continues to be a great experience. On this occasion they were decorated for Christmas, which was very nice to see the room was wonderfully quiet and well appointed, it met all my needs. The staff at the front desk was very nice. The wait staff serving in the bar and bistro area were all very nice and pleasant but you could tell that they were very new to serving. Unfortunately, the Ritz Carlton club was under construction, so I was not able to enjoy as much of the hotel as I wanted.

This is hands down among the most exquisite hotel experiences in New Orleans! Especially if you’re staying for the holidays, it is a total feast for the eyes. The service is top-tier from the moment you arrive. The valet is thorough and takes all your bags to your room. The rooms are lovely and huge—plenty of space for two people. The location is great because it’s not on a very loud street so you have distance from all the action of Bourbon but it is easily walkable to the main sights. For me, a highlight was the amenities—they have three fitness rooms with state of the art equipment, a pool and jacuzzi and full service spa. I was shocked and excited to see such an extensive set of amenities. The hotel itself is a bit of a maze, but amazing for events onsite. Highly recommend this hotel!
