Windsor Court Hotel View 40 photos The Windsor Court Hotel, which underwent a $22 million renovation in 2011, is beloved by New Orleans travelers for a variety of reasons. There's the view of the Mississippi River as seen from the higher-up balconies or bay windows, and the kind and courteous staff members that go above and beyond in customer service, according to visitors. Not to mention the delicious and refined Southern eats served in The Grill Room. Plus there are other nice features to consider, like The Grill Room's live contemporary jazz performances every Saturday night, or the housekeeping staff's twice-daily room cleaning. Rooms come equipped with a blend of English and French decor, Italian marble baths, iHome radios, minibars and complimentary Wi-Fi access. You'll also find a full-service spa, fitness center and rooftop pool at this NOLA favorite. Windsor Court is located on Gravier Street, within walking distance of some of the city's top sites like the National World War II Museum and the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

The Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans View 40 photos Even in a city like New Orleans where hotels wear quirky like a badge of honor, the typicalness of this Ritz branch sits well with travelers. Recent guests have plenty of positive remarks for the superbly clean accommodations, hospitable staff and unmistakably luxurious features. Sitting on the edge of the French Quarter, the Ritz keeps things distinctly local with decor that's reflective of the Garden District's antebellum mansions. Guests report that the rooms are both pristine and modern with neoclassical furnishings, Italian marble baths, flat-screen televisions, iPod docking stations and terry robes. Recent lodgers recommend booking a room in the front of the hotel if you want to avoid the Canal Street din. Staying true to its roots, the Ritz also offers two eateries with distinct NOLA flavors. And if you need a break from The Big Easy's rowdy atmosphere, unwind at the hotel's day spa. Yes, this Canal Street hotel is expensive, but many say it's more than worth shelling out the cash. And, if you're a Marriott Rewards member you can earn or score complimentary extras by choosing to stay here.

The Roosevelt New Orleans, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel View 74 photos A hotel can be old, but it certainly shouldn't look old. Case in point: The historic Roosevelt, a classic among the lodging offerings of New Orleans, had begun to show a little wear before Hurricane Katrina. After that setback, the owners used it as an opportunity to close, renovate and resuscitate their fledgling stamp on luxury. Part of Waldorf Astoria's esteemed collection, The Roosevelt New Orleans has been able to preserve its legendary status while keeping up with the evolving standard of luxury. Recent lodgers gush over the comfortable rooms and their high-quality furniture (leather chairs and couches, in some cases), and appreciate modern features like the high-speed Internet access (for a fee) and flat-screen TVs. The staff members also win over recent patrons for being exceptionally accommodating. What's more, the legendary Sazerac Bar is reminiscent of the happening spot it was in the days of Louis Armstrong and Huey P. Long. You can find The Roosevelt New Orleans right off Canal Street, on Roosevelt Way. And if you're a Hilton HHonors member you can earn or redeem reward points here for perks.

Loews New Orleans Hotel View 85 photos Bigger is better sometimes, so say the recent guests of the Loews New Orleans Hotel. The rooms are pretty large as are the showers. Along with the spacious showers, rooms also come with Keurig coffee makers, free Wi-Fi access, 24-hour room service and Egyptian cotton linens. And the hotel itself is pretty tall, considering it doesn't start until the 11th floor of a skyscraper in the Central Business District. Additional on-site amenities at this property include the Balance Spa, a fitness center and an indoor saltwater pool. As far as service is concerned, recent visitors have mixed reviews. Some said it's a little lacking, noting disorganized front desk staff and inattentive restaurant servers, while others encountered friendly and helpful hotel employees. If you're a member of the Loews YouFirst loyalty program, you might want to bed down here to earn or redeem rewards.

Omni Royal Orleans View 71 photos The Omni Royal Orleans benefits from its address on St. Louis Street — between Royal and Chartres streets — in the French Quarter. In 2013, the property underwent a renovation of its public areas and guest rooms, many of which now boast wrought iron balconies. When you're not exploring the fresh decor, visit the popular in-house restaurant, the Rib Room. Recent lodgers report that though rooms are somewhat small, they feature French and Creole design accents, marble bathrooms (which guests say offer great water pressure) and courtyard or French Quarter views. If you don't score a room with French Quarter views, head to the highly praised rooftop observation deck. Travelers also recommend joining the Omni Select Guest program to enjoy complimentary perks, like free in-room Wi-Fi and a free libation at the bar.

Royal Sonesta New Orleans View 90 photos The Royal Sonesta New Orleans is one of the few French Quarter hotels that didn't close down immediately following Hurricane Katrina. But after showing some wear and tear, the property underwent an extensive renovation to update the interior, accommodations and introduce a hot new eatery, Restaurant R'evolution. What's more, the Royal Sonesta owns more than 7,000 contemporary works of art, many of which can be found on display throughout the hotel. Travelers praise the tip-top, Euro-tinged decor and the clean guest rooms, which are outfitted with flat-screen TVs, minibars and beds with pillow-top mattresses. If you can afford to, guests also recommend you upgrade from a regular room to one of the R Club level accommodations. You'll have access to a lounge with 24-hour concierge service, breakfast, tea and cocktails, plus complimentary use of a computer. Recent guests who booked one of the interior R Club rooms report hearing little to no noise from busy Bourbon Street.

Hotel Monteleone View 39 photos The Hotel Monteleone has boarded the who's who of American literati, including Ernest Hemingway, Tennessee Williams and William Faulkner, to name a few. Even some of the new class (like Anne Rice, Winston Groom and John Grisham) have stayed here for a night or two. And the hotel's revolving Carousel Bar & Lounge has become an icon that features prominently in books and movies about the city of New Orleans. In other words, the Hotel Monteleone is an institution. As such, it's hard to determine whether previous guests' opinions of their stay are based on quality or legacy. Some patrons gush over the hotel's charm, while others complain of cramped rooms and a dated look and feel. Rooms include Keurig coffee makers, HD televisions, plush robes and marble and granite bathrooms. Most everyone agrees, though, that the staff here is very personable and the location is superb. The Hotel Monteleone sits on Royal Street in the French Quarter.

Harrah's New Orleans View 34 photos Harrah's real bread and butter is the casino floor, not the hotel rooms. But still, travelers find that this Mississippi Riverfront hotel does an excellent job of making you feel at home while you take your chances at the slots and tables. The rooms are large, the staff is quick to respond to the needs of their guests and because you're in such a prime spot, you can easily walk to the French Quarter's best-loved sites or to the Central Business District. This hotel can be bustling, so you might want to stay someplace else if you value your R&R (and your zzz's).

Renaissance New Orleans Arts Hotel View 39 photos Fairly soon after you enter this Renaissance, it should become clear why it has been given the name "Arts Hotel." The Marriott-backed property is filled with modern works, many of which are inside the satellite branch of the Arthur Rogers Gallery that you'll find in the lobby. Guests say that rooms more or less fit into this brand's usual standard of luxury, so you'll find sparse — but high quality — furnishings and very comfortable beds, plus amenities like Aveda bath products, minifridges and LCD TVs. Recent lodgers also praise the lobby for its Dale Chihuly glass-blown chandeliers. The Renaissance New Orleans Arts Hotel also has a heated rooftop pool, something that you won't find at too many luxury hotels in NOLA. If you're interested, you can appropriately find this property in the gallery-heavy Arts District (aka the Warehouse District). And if you're a Marriott Rewards member you can accrue or redeem points by choosing to stay here.

There, you'll find plenty of fine art, lots of antique furniture and a beautiful Czechoslovakian crystal chandelier. Consider spending a few moments there in the evenings, when the staff hands out complimentary peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to its patrons on silver platters. Plus, since this property is member of the Leading Hotels of the World, guests who are part of the Leaders Club loyalty program can earn and redeem complimentary nights here.

Omni Riverfront Hotel View 44 photos The Omni Riverfront Hotel offers comfortable, upscale accommodations slightly removed from the hustle and bustle of the French Quarter. Located three blocks north of the New Orleans convention center and across the street from the cruise port terminal, the property also offers easy access to local attractions like the Audubon Aquarium as well as numerous shopping and dining options. If you choose to stay at the hotel for your meals, you'll find the Fulton St. Bistro, which serves comfort food in a relaxed French cafe setting. Guests say the service staff members are friendly and helpful, especially the concierge and front desk staff. Recent visitors also reported satisfaction with the spacious, clean guest rooms, which underwent renovations in 2015 to include new furnishings and a subdued color palette of tans and blues. Standard amenities include flat-screen TVs, iHome radios, coffee makers and bathrobes. Those in town on business can take advantage of services like shoe shines and currency exchange while those who want to work up a sweat can use the on-site fitness center or request a complimentary in-room fitness kit that comes with stretch bands, dumbbells and a stress ball. Overall, guests say they were pleased with their stay, but felt the room rates were a little high for the quality. Travelers can save some coin by joining the Omni Select Guest program, where members get free in-room Wi-Fi access and can earn and redeem free nights.

Sheraton New Orleans Hotel View 85 photos Situated on the edge of the famed French Quarter (and along the Mardi Gras parade route), the Sheraton New Orleans Hotel is set in a prime location for both work and play in the Crescent City. The hotel has more than 100,000 square feet of event space spread across several different venues and Link@Sheraton tech hub, complete with computers, printers and free Internet access, which appeals to business travelers. Meanwhile, amenities like the on-site fitness center and rooftop pool and deck attract leisure visitors. Regardless of the reason for your stay, you'll find all 1,110 accommodations decorated in neutral tones with teal accents; all of which feature floor-to-ceiling windows, Sheraton's Sweet Sleeper beds, flat-screen LCD TVs and coffee makers. Past guests praised the rooms' cleanliness as well as the staff's friendly demeanor. The only pitfalls according to past visitors were the pricey fees for Wi-Fi access and valet parking. When hunger sets in, dining options include the Roux Bistro, serving traditional New Orleans cuisine, and the Pelican Bar, which serves cocktails and lighter fare. What's more, this Sheraton outpost allows Starwood Preferred Guests to collect and use points at the hotel.

InterContinental New Orleans View 187 photos You'll need to book this hotel at least a month in advance if you want to visit for Mardi Gras. And book it you should, since the extra popular parade passes right by the InterContinental's front doors on St. Charles Avenue. However, you'll probably see more business travelers lodging here throughout the rest of the year, because this hotel prefers to wow you with basic luxuries rather than hip, over-the-top styling. Rooms were renovated in 2014 and are outfitted in a neutral decor with work desks and flat-screen TVs. Recent guests were fans of the updated accommodations, outdoor pool and the friendly customer service. If you're a member of IHG's Rewards Club program, you can earn or cash in points for your stay.

The Westin New Orleans Canal Place View 28 photos If you think that you might find staying at a French Quarter hotel tiring, then you should investigate the accommodations located right on the outskirts. One such hotel would be The Westin New Orleans Canal Place, a property that gets consistent praise for allowing its residents to let their hair down in the midst of the crazy Crescent City. Some say it's the Heavenly Beds, others say it’s the efficient housekeeping staff and pleasant service, still others muse that it's the nightcaps served in the hotel's River 127 lounge — whatever the reason, they agree this Westin definitely offers stress-free accommodations. Recent guests say they can't award the hotel perfect reviews, though, because of worn room interiors and slow elevators. Starwood Preferred Guests can accrue or exchange accumulated points here for additional stay benefits.

International House, New Orleans View 52 photos New Orleans is a city that practically begs for you to stay in a boutique hotel. And perhaps the "boutique-iest" option is the International House. Previous guests say this Central Business District hotel is certainly a feast for the eyes, with architectural artifacts adorning the guest rooms, and furnishings, linens and color palettes chosen by Los Angeles-based designer LM Pagno. All rooms are outfitted with flat-screen TVs, iHome stereos and Aveda bath toiletries. Along with the well-appointed rooms, the International House also features the candlelit Loa bar, favored by guests for its inventive cocktails. But because this is a boutique hotel, it does come with some quirks, including no room service and small accommodations.
