U.S. News Review

Even in a city like New Orleans where hotels wear "quirky" like a badge of honor, the "typical-ness" of this Ritz branch sits well with travelers. Recent guests have plenty of positive remarks for the 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 clean and modern with Neoclassical furnishings, Italian marble baths, 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 bed down here.
