Just swung by for an overnight last weekend. Standard great service and beautiful rooms. The lounge is hopping on a Saturday night, and Jeremy Davenport and his band are terrific. This is the only place we stay when we want to be close to the French Quarter, as the experience is top notch and location is fantastic. We also used... More

This place is over the top nice. Rooms are super clean. You walk in and the room screams luxury. And it doesn't stop there. Service was above and beyond. Talk about making our stay unforgettable. The hotel customer service found out that my daughter was celebrating a birthday during our stay. Sure enough there was a card and a gift... More

We stayed at the Ritz Carlton for 3 nights to move our daughter into college. The hotel itself was lovely, although a little dark, and had an odd layout. We had to use several elevators and walk across the hotel just to get to our room. Other than that, the food at the restaurant was exquisite with great, live music.... More

Just what you'd expect from The Ritz Carlton. Great historic building, great location, excellent service. Within walking distance to lots of shops and restaurants. The bistro in the hotel was great also.

Love this historic building. The authentic post Katrina restored architecture speaks volumes. Loved the internal courtyard but wish the pool wasn't in the basement. Great music and fun times. Definitely recommend.

This review is wayyy overdue. My wife and I stayed here for a weekend in July. I love the heavy culture of the French Quarters and the City of New Orleans. It was a 5 star experience from the phone call I made to set the reservation, to John(valet extraordinaire) closing my driver door of my Jag waving bye as... More

Beautiful hotel. Smelled beautiful, looked beautiful. Great location. Can not say enough good things about it. The room was beautiful. Its a stagger away from the great nite life. Close enough to shops.

We stayed at the Ritz for 4 nights in Aug 2014 for your wedding anniversary. The staff treated us well, always a smile and a "welcome back" when we would return from our day out. Housekeeping stopped by to make sure everything was good in our room and that we were not missing anything. Spent time in the lounge and... More

The service at the Ritz Carlton in downtown New Orleans was awesome! The hotel is an oasis in the heart of downtown located near several great restaurants. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. I would recommend this hotel for business or pleasure.
