I stayed here during the week for a conference. The hotel use to be a department store and was converted about 9 years ago to the Ritz Carlton. This is a historic building and has LOTS of charm. The hotel staff was fantastic, very accommodating and proactive.
I loved the courtyard in the lobby - such wonderful space and a great atmosphere.
My room was very spacious and nicely appointed. Turndown service from housekeeping was a bit inconsistent. Some nights the tv was turned on in my room and others times it wasn't. This wasn't a big deal at all but just not expected from a Ritz. I loved the morning housekeeper, she greeted me by name every morning and wished me a great day.
The location of the Ritz can't be beat. It is 1 block from Bourbon Street and all the French Quarter has to offer.
I would definitely stay here the next time I am in New Orleans.
