    Royal Sonesta New Orleans
    New Orleans, LA
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 5034 reviewsTripAdvisor (5034)
    Free WiFi

    The Royal Sonesta New Orleans recently underwent an extensive renovation, revealing 483 newly updated guest rooms. What's more, the property 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 rooms, which are outfitted with flat-screen TVs, minifridges, Keurig coffee makers, robes and beds with pillow-top mattresses. Recent guests also recommend upgrading from a regular room to one of the R Club Concierge Level accommodations, if it fits into your budget. You'll receive access to a lounge with 24-hour concierge service, free 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. However, that is not the case for all other rooms on the property, which can let in a fair amount of street noise.

    InterContinental New Orleans
    New Orleans, LA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1950 reviewsTripAdvisor (1950)
    Free WiFi

    You'll need to book this hotel at least a month in advance if you want to visit New Orleans 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. The property underwent a full renovation in 2014 and guest rooms are now outfitted with work desks and flat-screen TVs. Recent guests were fans of the updated accommodations, outdoor pool and the friendly customer service, though others thought the breakfast and parking fees were a tad pricey. If you're a member of IHG's Rewards Club program, you can earn or cash in points for your stay.

    The Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans
    New Orleans, LA
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3480 reviewsTripAdvisor (3480)

    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. 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 pristine, boasting neoclassical furnishings, Italian marble baths, flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations and floor-to-ceiling windows. 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 Bonvoy member, you can earn or score complimentary extras by choosing to stay here. Still, some recent guests note that this hotel doesn't live up to the Ritz-Carlton standards they are used to in terms of service.

    The Roosevelt New Orleans, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel
    New Orleans, LA
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 4526 reviewsTripAdvisor (4526)

    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 two 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 Honors member, you can earn or redeem reward points here for perks.

    Sheraton New Orleans Hotel
    New Orleans, LA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 2814 reviewsTripAdvisor (2814)

    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 property has more than 105,000 square feet of event space spread across several different venues and the FedEx Business Center 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 blue accents. Each also features a floor-to-ceiling window, a Sheraton Sweet Sleeper bed, a flat-screen LCD TV and a coffee maker. 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 Marriott Bonvoy members to collect or use points at the hotel.

    JW Marriott New Orleans
    New Orleans, LA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 99 reviewsTripAdvisor (99)

    Consider this hotel if you're looking to be in the thick of things, especially during Mardi Gras, when the JW Marriott has a great vantage point of the parades. Others have used this hotel as their home base for business travel and for the springtime New Orleans Jazz Fest. But if you want a hotel loaded with special perks and overwhelming comfort, recent guests do note that this property doesn't offer much more than the basics. Guest rooms are a decent size with plush duvets, marble bathrooms and bathrobes, desks and flat-screen TVs. What's more, the hotel is home to a fitness center and an outdoor saltwater pool. Lodgers report that the on-site Fogo De Chao, a Brazilian steakhouse, is pretty tasty. If you'd rather branch out beyond your digs, the hotel's ideal location means there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance. If you're a Marriott Bonvoy member you can earn or cash in points here.

    Hyatt Centric French Quarter
    New Orleans, LA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2761 reviewsTripAdvisor (2761)
    Free WiFi

    This Hyatt Centric hotel (the newest boutique brand from Hyatt geared towards millienials) in the French Quarter lures travelers who are seeking a convenient home base near New Orleans' top attractions. Once you've settled into your room – outfitted with a flat-screen TV and an iPod docking station – you can unwind with a dip in the outdoor pool or savor a cocktail at the poolside bar. Should you crave more activity, get your heart racing at the hotel's 24-hour fitness center; you can also explore nearby attractions, like Bourbon Street and the French Market. If perusing the local stands makes your stomach rumble, head back to the hotel's Red Fish Grill for some Creole favorites like pecan-crusted catfish and jambalaya. For lighter fare, stop by the Hyatt's Powdered Sugar market in the lobby or the adjacent Hard Rock Café (which is connected to the hotel). When nighttime rolls around, savor a cocktail at Batch Bar or join in the Bourbon Street revelry. Just keep in mind, if you're a light sleeper, you may want to reserve a room facing the courtyard or the pool; previous lodgers say accommodations with city views can let in disruptive street noise from below. If you participate in the Hyatt Gold Passport rewards program, you may earn or redeem points here.

    New Orleans Marriott
    New Orleans, LA
    3.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 3938 reviewsTripAdvisor (3938)

    According to recent guests, the best thing about the New Orleans Marriott is its on-site restaurant, 5Fifty5. The hotel also features a bar, 55 Fahrenheit, that offers a menu of more than 200 wines.  Past travelers praised both the service and the cuisine, citing the large breakfast buffet as a favorite, which is free for those staying in M Club rooms. Not only does the M Club lounge serve breakfast, but guests staying in these rooms can find midday snacks and hors d'oeuvres, as well as late-night bites and complimentary nonalcoholic beverages. Those staying in standard rooms were just as pleased with their amenities, which include oversized chairs, coffee makers, 37-inch flat-screen TVs and Wi-Fi access (for a fee). When guests aren't in their rooms they can take advantage of the fitness center and outdoor pool before venturing out on the town. Visitors praised the convenient location of the New Orleans Marriott, which sits just two blocks south of Bourbon Street, for being close to the action yet far enough away for those business trips looking for some quiet. What's more, members of the Marriott Rewards program can earn and use points here.

    The Old No. 77 Hotel & Chandlery
    New Orleans, LA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 3127 reviewsTripAdvisor (3127)
    Free WiFi

    Originally built as a warehouse in 1854, this boutique hotel is located just south of the infamous French Quarter in New Orleans. Its ideal location was a highlight for recent guests. Several visitors said they were able to walk to many of the Big Easy's top attractions, including the Louisiana Children's Museum and the French Quarter's jazz clubs and restaurants. If you'd rather explore the hotel's culinary offerings, you'll have two options. The Old No. 77 Hotel & Chandlery is home to Compère Lapin, a restaurant blending Caribbean and Gulf flavors, and Tout La, which offers fresh pastries, coffee and more. If you need to work off all those beignets, make use of the hotel's on-site fitness center. When it comes to accommodations, rooms feature exposed brick walls and neutral decor, plus free in-room Wi-Fi access, beds with pillow-top mattresses and Lather bath toiletries. However, previous guests found a few disappointments with their digs, noting that several rooms have no windows and that noise from Lafayette Street was a nuisance. Visitors were more impressed with the customer service at this property.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 2 based on 52 reviewsTripAdvisor (52)

    Travelers have trouble finding fault with this Omni branch on Gravier Street. Some of the most common praise includes the hotel's location about two blocks from Canal Street's serious shopping opportunities; the renovated rooms with comfortable, custom-made mattresses on the beds and satin hangers in the closets; and the delicious food at the "gourmet" burger restaurant called Dress It. They do advise against using the pricey valet parking for an already-pricey hotel stay. Recent lodgers recommend joining Omni's Select Guest program to earn perks like free Wi-Fi and a complimentary libation.

    AC Hotel New Orleans Bourbon/French Quarter Area
    New Orleans, LA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 189 reviewsTripAdvisor (189)
    Free WiFi

    Though the AC Hotel New Orleans Bourbon/French Quarter Area occupies a historic building a few blocks southwest of the French Quarter, its interiors are decidedly modern. Rooms feature minifridges, free Wi-Fi access and 47-inch flat-screen TVs equipped with an Internet connection that allows you to sign in to your Netflix or Hulu account. Some guests enjoyed the minimalist, chic design of the accommodations, while others said the laminate flooring and lack of any rugs or carpeting made the rooms feel cold and industrial. Travelers were more complimentary of the hotel's location near Bourbon Street and several of the Crescent City's top eateries and rollicking bars. But if you want to stick near the hotel, you can grab tapas and handcrafted cocktails at the AC Lounge. For larger meals, you'll have to venture off the property; the AC Kitchen only offers breakfast. If you need to work off all the beignets and po'boys, take advantage of the hotel's on-site fitness center. Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and redeem points and perks for choosing to stay here.
