Greatest Weekend of My Life

Jeremy and I got engaged at your hotel the weekend of our two year anniversary. I had no idea it was about to happen. This was our first time staying at the Ritz, and it couldn't have been more perfect. Since it was Christmas time the hotel was decorated with beautiful arrangements and Christmas trees. It set the mood, and made our trip very romantic. When Jeremy proposed he video taped the proposal. I will always have the Ritz Carlton in my memory -- because I jumped up and down on the bed about 10 times when he asked me. It was the best place to become engaged. Right in our hotel room at the foot of the bed. I was eating M&M's from the mini bar-- which wasn't as romantic as I would've of wanted. But, at the same time it was so perfect.

I loved that weekend, and I am thankful to the Ritz for everything they did for us.
Lots of Love,
Amy and Jeremy

Historical Traveller Reviews of The Ritz Carlton New Orleans Hotel


from A TripAdvisor Member
I was impressed with the comfort of the rooms we stayed in. At $99 a night (because of the time of year we went) was unbeatable. They could work on service. One of the doors of the T.V. armoire was not opening correctly and my father almost got hit by it several times. We informed the front desk but was never fixed. I guess we didn't insist enough.
Skip the restaurant, they had great service but food was expensive and not all that great.

Charming and Elegant

from A TripAdvisor Member
3 nights at the Ritz Carlton in New Orleans in early December. Staff were wonderful. The location was perfect, just a few blocks away from the Quarter to allow for quiet sleep night but easy easy walking access to Bourbon Street, etc. The beds are incredible, down duvets and pillows. The rooms are very clean, with excellent baths and bath amenities. Room service was top of the line. One word of caution about the resturants in house. Great for lunch and dinner, but breakfast is a bank breaker. $50 for two people eating scrambled eggs and drinking orange juice. Nice eggs, nice orange juice. But a $25 value at best.

Not the best.....

from A TripAdvisor Member
Just got back from a several night stay at the Ritz Carlton in New Orleans and we were disappointed.

A caveat, the reason we stayed at the Ritz on our Thanksgiving trip was that we found an incredible deal for $99 a night until the weekend nights where the rates raised to $199 - but overall about $130 a night which is hard to beat in New Orleans.

Overall, the stay was worth $130 a night but if we were paying full price (+$200) we would have been sorely disappointed. The hotel delivered on the large details (i.e. good staff, upscale rooms) but missed the small things that other upscale chains (i.e. other Ritzs, 'W's and Hilton) don't.

To be brief, the taxi situation was horrible with a half hour wait each time a taxi was needed (the doormen always seemed surprised anyone would need a taxi). Another time we called to order a taxi the previous night to be told that calling a taxi would not be an issue the next morning at 5 am (for an early flight), we called again that morning before we left the room (so they'd be ready). When we arrived downstairs we were met with confusion (no one was aware we needed a taxi) plus the streets in front of the hotel had been closed off so taxis could not even come to the hotel - we ended up calling one specifically and making our flight. In addition, the hotel failed to successfully perform a wake up call (we used the in room alarm clock as back up so it worked out). Also, if you do stay here, ask for a quiet room (not facing Canal Street) as sirens, bass of cars were deafening during the Weekend evenings (until 4 am).

One other note, this was a big weekend with a huge football game (30,000+ fans in town) but in New Orleans big weekends are normal.
Again, the staff was great (i.e. front desk, concierge) and the rooms were nice (marble bathrooms, fluff beds) and for $130 a great deal - but not what we've come to expect from other hotels in the chain.

Loved it

from sugarland
It was wonderful. Location, staff and spa were excellent. Bedding was luxurious.

the ritz-carlton new orleans was lovely

from A TripAdvisor Member
we have just returned from a stay at the ritz-carlton in beautiful new orleans. this hotel is the best in the city! fantastic courtyard, close to the quarter but not directly in the craziness. the room was elegant!
bathroom was nice. modern and clean but luxurious. this hotel was expensive but so is every other decent hotel in town. don't chance staying someplace else. when i got to town and saw the other comparable priced hotels i was SO glad we chose the ritz! the staff was extra helpfull and friendly. the sunday jazz brunch was not great and was expensive. that was the only drawback i found. skip the jazz brunch and go to brennen's insted.

Pampered at the Ritz

from lja9799
My stay there was excellant, I had a couple that cancelled at the last moment and the ritz did not charged them a dime. The service, beds and location was wonderful, we will be doing it again!!!

Perfect Anniversary

from A TripAdvisor Member
Hubby and I tried their Bed and Breakfast package for our anniversary and loved every moment. The very reasonable price (330) included breakfast for two from Victor's, complimentary parking, and a lovely jazz cd. We were warmly greeted and congratulated on our anniversary.
After a day of sightseeing we returned to find chocolate covered strawberries and an anniversary card waiting for us. After dinner we returned to find our bed turned down with chocolates and a full bucket of ice standing by. Our request for breakfast in bed instead of downstairs was easily accomodated as was our request for early check in the day before because the timing of our spa services. Would definitely return again!

Loved the Ritz

from A TripAdvisor Member
The room was extremely nice with a lovely bathroom. The bed was so comfortable with luxurious sheets and wonderful pillows. All of the staff were very nice, attentive and addressed any needs immediately. Be sure and visit The Collection, a boutique in the hotel for a great shopping experience with Wanda an exceptional lady. I had a lovely 4 night stay at the Ritz and will definitely stay again when I return to New Orleans. Jan G.

Great hotel!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I cannot write anything bad about this hotel. Everything was simply luxurious. The bedding was extra soft and comfortable, the living space and bathroom was large. The servants were all friendly and very helpful. The baby spinach salad was delicious, as were their cheeseburgers and other sandwiches. I never got the opportunity to have dinner there but I am sure it would have been wonderful. My husband, two sons and I played cards in their library and other sitting area. I felt like a queen. We were able to stay there on a special deal that American Express was having and it made it very affordable. As long as you are prepared to pay high prices for the food and anything else you want there you will enjoy your stay thoroughly.

Loved the Ritz

from A TripAdvisor Member
The Ritz was so wonderful. The employees were so nice. It was a
beautiful hotel. Triple sheets and down filled blankets. It was not
very far from Bourbon St. Walking distance from all the attractions
farmers market, riverwalk,casino. We had a great time. One thing to
mention is parking fees 25.00 a night. Another thing is you're tipping
every time you turn around.

Top Local Tips for New Orleans

Cochon Great new restaurant. Ask the concierge. Authentic CAJUN, not creole (like most of New Orleans).

Acme Oyster House We ate there twice in 2 days with different friends that "had" to go there. Standing in line on a urine soaked street for fried food and a 30 minute meal that was nothing special is not my idea of enjoyable. You can get great oysters at dozens of places and the po'boy was nothing exceptional.

A FEMALE SENATORS REVIEW OF THE RITZ Do not stay at the ritz, it is not safe escpecially for a single woman traveling alone, the hotel and the surrounding area is rampant with crime and hotel security is corrupt.
