As my title indicates, the comfort here is supreme. I was taken aback by some of the reviews on tripadvisor, boy was I wrong. I don't know where these bad reviews are coming from, but this place is the epitome of luxury and nothing less. The staff is very nice; always ready to help and please. The hotel itself is very luxurious, impeccably clean & comfortable, I can be very picky, but I was not able to find anything to complain about. I looked everywhere in my room for dirt, dust, signs of mouse/rats or mold as mentioned in some previous reviews and nothing, everything was spotless. I was given a room exactly to my liking. Rooms are large, very clean, comfortable & quiet, the bed is pure comfort. You will feel pampered here. Yes, the decor is old world & traditional, but this is a Ritz-Carlton and it absolutely fits in New Orleans. If you want edgy and cool, go stay at the W Hotel. The hotel location is good to visit New Orleans, however the hotel is located not too far from an iffy & dilapidated area... keep that in mind, but I can't see why tourists would wander in that area anyhow. If you are just curious, take the Canal streetcar going towards the cemeteries and you will see what I mean. I would return at the Ritz-Carlton New Orleans in a heartbeat.
