full disclosure--i came here with a wedding party and thus received a discounted rate, but i am trying to review the Ritz as if i had paid a few hundred bucks more.
when i got home to atlanta yesterday, i was so sad that no one was coming to clean my room and make my bed, that the view out my window was just trees and houses instead of a bustling city, that i couldn't just go downstairs and expect a buffet of delicious snacks waiting for me...
this Ritz is beautiful. the staff was friendly. the bartender was...turtle-slow, but hey! this is nola, and everything moves at its own pace, right?
the king bed was divine and the lead curtains kept out the morning sunshine when we wanted them to. granted, the room was only 6 floors above canal so it was noisy at times, just from the street being so close.
the place is HUGE, and if you're tired of your room but don't want to head out on the town there are plenty of other options--the amazing patio, the lounge, the smoking room, the club level snack haven...you name it.
