Great place to stay ! Large room, comfortable bed, we loved the wood floors, brick walls and old school charm. Staff was very personable and informative about the hotel and surrounding area. Close to casino, french quarter and bourbin street. Will stay here again.

Well located just off the French quarter within easy walking distance to the riverside mall and casino, Bourbon St and a little further to the increasingly popular Frenchman St. Plenty of high quality restaurants and bars to suit all tastes nearby. Friendly and accommodating staff made for a most pleasant stay for a solo traveller.

The rooms were nice roomy and the bed was very comfortable. One block from the Casino. The service was great. A safe is in the room if needed. 18 minutes from the Super Dome 11 blocks walking distance.

While planning my trip to NOLA for a music-biz conference and gig, SW Airlines popped up an ad for this as a special package with my flight. From the address I remember this having been the old Ambassador Hotel with Lafayette bar--and everything I'd read about the old place was "meh" at best. But I surfed the site and found... More

Very large room. We loved the tall ceilings, brick accent wall. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Loved the location very close to sites and easy in and out! We loved the bathroom shower and how it was decorated! Really liked the shower products.

Very nice retro rustic hotel .... Staff was great... had a premium deluxe room in the front of the hotel very nice & clean only set back way to much traffic noise... most of the common areas were a little worn and dirty could have been better wake up (manager) all in all good stay

The short of it is this: This hotel is fantastic. The rooms are fantastic, and so is the lobby, the location, the restaurant (Compere Lapin) and the staff. The long of it is this: the staff was fantastic about everything from super (and I mean SUPER) late checkout to leaving new towels outside the room when we hung the Do... More

LOVED this hotel! Beautiful, old timey building! Great customer service! Right in the heart of downtown New Orleans, could walk to just about everything! About a 20 min walk to the Superdome, French quarter, etc... The only thing I didn't like was it didn't have a pool (but we really didn't have time to swim, so it's good) or that... More

I flew from overseas for a TDY in Mississippi and drive here for the weekend. I found this hotel online and it was available for the dates I needed. This place is true to the pictures and has an awesome industrial feel to it. It reminds me of apartments in New York City. The staff is incredibly friendly and so... More

Thanks for the review. I hadn't heard the expression TDY since I was a kid and my dad was in the military - we're glad you took some time to visit us. Come see us again soon. John More

A cool hotel can make a cool city even cooler. The Old No. 77 Hotel & Chandlery added the frosting to the cake that is New Orleans. This space has a fantastic restaurant on site, a bar stocked with great libations, an amazing coffee bar featuring coffee from French Truck (the best roaster in New Orleans), a hip, quiet lobby...
