Central Business District, New Orleans
The Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans
What it is
A regal retreat housed in an historic Beaux Arts Maison Blanche building dating back to 1908.
What it isn't
Bourbon Street (even though it’s only one block away).
What we think
This Grand Dame of Canal Street carefully balances the past and the present and while it’s expansive, occupying an entire city block unto itself, it’ll start to feel just like home once you check in. The former department store, which didn’t become a hotel until the 1980s, epitomizes classic luxury with its spacious rooms and suites, complete with marble bathrooms, but it never feels dated. Tiny touches, like soul-warming cups of gumbo served in the lobby during afternoons, remind you you’re not just anywhere--you’re in New Orleans.
You're here because
You want to feel pampered, but you also don’t want to forget where you are. You want a relaxing respite to call your own after a long day spent exploring The Big Easy.
Sitting in the Davenport Lounge, sipping on a Sazerac while you listen to the hotel’s resident jazz musician, Jeremy Davenport, play his trumpet.
