Excellent location. Step out the backside entrance and you're in the famous French Quarter and within walking distance to great eats, Jackson Square, Cafe Du Monde, Harrah's casino and the Convention Center. Don't forget the Muffuletta sandwich at Central Grocery!
The classic architecture reveals the age of the building, but Ritz has done a fine job with the interior. Although not Las Vegas-style grand, the rooms were very comfortable and clean. The hotel's private courtyard was a nice place to have relax and have a drink outdoors without leaving the confines of the hotel. Adjacent to the courtyard is the Library lounge with a full service bar and live music at times. This was a popular evening hangout for many. We also enjoyed their spa services. Nothing beats a deep tissue massage after long conference day.
Other than the doorman who greets you each day, I really did not notice the staff -- and that's a compliment to their effectiveness. They were professional and attentive to the point of performing tasks effectively without bringing attention to themselves.
Although we were on a company-sponsored business trip, some Trippers may question the Value when there are more cost-conscious hotel brands in the area. On this point, I would agree and that is the only reason I did not give an Excellent rating.
If your budget allows, the Ritz is a nice treat. We will be returning to New Orleans for an upcoming conference and have already booked our rooms at the Ritz Carlton.
