Davenport Lounge offers a great place to relax, enjoy a classy environment with wonderful jazz music by renowned music of Jeremy Davenport. Loved it!! Great cocktails, wonderful service! If you like jazz, you'll love this place!!

I spent four nights earlier this month at the Ritz Carlton to attend a conference that was being hosted at the hotel. We were lucky to get a good rate on the rooms, because this property more luxurious than the hotels where I usually stay. The level of service was noticeably high - I was called by name, I was offered extra services (though not in a pushy, up-selling way), and the venue is beautifully maintained.

I have a few tiny complaints, which I mention only to balance out the review. A hotel that is as luxurious as this one probably doesn't need to resort to scented candles in the lobby, which I found a bit jarring. The extra security feature of needing to put your room keycard in the elevator to get to the guest room floors stymied many guests. The location, Canal Street, is a little seedy (not the Ritz's fault, I'm sure). All the same, this was a fine hotel, and I would return to stay there again.

This luxury hotel is on Canal St., sitting at the top of the Fench Quarter. Its architecture offers marble granduer and lingering in the courtyard or in the sumptuous bar. The rooms are classic Ritz Carlton and service everywhere is top notch. This is my second trip and I will not go to any other hotel in New Orleans.

Room Tip: For a quieter room face away from Canal St.

We just checked out after spending three nights in a club room at the Ritz. What a fantastic experience. We were celebrating our honeymoon and a special birthday and the staff treated us like royalty. Experiencing the club lounge (breakfast, lunch, evening snacks) really helped to make this a wonderful vacation; the food, drinks, atmosphere and the service all were top notch. So relaxed and enjoyable. The decor was French Provincial and was a pleasure to look at. Kudos go to Russell, Janis and Dianne and everyone in the lounge.

Our room was on the 9th floor with an OK view of the city. It was large, very clean and very comfortable (the bed, the bedding, towels etc) and in fact was quite luxurious. When we called for something to be delivered to our room, it came within a few minutes! This is the kind of service one expects from the Ritz. We can't wait to go back again.

Room Tip: Make your you stay on one of the club floors. It is really worth the extra cost.

I had the pleasure to stay at the Ritz-Carlton New Orleans over the weekend. It was conveniently located just one block from Bourbon Street and was the edge of the French Quarter. It was a bit confusing going from the first floor to the third floor for the check-in, but once I got there, everything went smoothly. I was especially impressed on Sunday morning when they had an older gentleman there to greet and hold the elevator for me. It's a nice addition to have that kind of service. And Bubba, one of the door men, graciously helped me hail a cab and get me off to the airport while everyone was busy trying to get to the Saints Game. My only criticism is that the hotel is a bit dated, but when thinking about it, it adds to the charm of the hotel; make it more nostalgic. I would stay here again.

Great location of this iconic branded hotel. You are just close enough to Bourbon Street and all the local activities and yet just far enough away to get some quiet and relaxing sleep. Plus, in addition to the great service you expect from the Ritz, i.e. golf umbrellas to keep you dry during an unexpected rain shower, etc. the lounge at the hotel is the place to be! Jeremy Davenport is an amazing jazz musician and the bar is packed for his great weekend performances. There's also a quaint outdoor garden just off the lobby and bar area if you want to step outside for a moment.

We were going to New Orleans for the Rutgers - Tulane football game. Originally scheduled to arrive on Thursday, we didn't get in until Saturday. The check in was painless and the staff extremely helpful. Physically parts of the hotel are not up to Ritz standards and tired looking. The elevator lobby on our floor smelled of damp and rot (due to hurricane?). Location is good, food and drink prices astronomical. Our room was acceptable but nothing special. Hotel staff throughout were very helpful and apologetic since they were understaffed due to the hurricane.
