    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.

    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.

    Hyatt Regency New Orleans
    New Orleans, LA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 4912 reviewsTripAdvisor (4912)
    Free WiFi

    Conveniently located within walking distance of the French Quarter and next to the Superdome, the Hyatt Regency New Orleans puts guests in the heart of the action. The Bywater Pool Deck & Bar, with its private cabanas, ample lounge chairs and expansive city views is the perfect place to unwind before painting the town. As for accommodations, rooms are contemporary with amenities such as 42-inch flat-screen TV, coffee makers and iHome stereo systems. While some past guests caution that the nightly rate is a bit steep compared to competitors, they say the clean, comfortable rooms and convenient address are well worth the price tag. Plus, if you participate in the Hyatt Gold Passport rewards program, you can use points to offset the price of your stay here. And though past guests note there are some excellent restaurants on-site, including 8 Block Kitchen & Bar, which specializes in traditional Southern fare, many suggest trying the fine dining establishments nearby before returning to the Hyatt for free live jazz shows on Friday and Saturday nights. Should you have any lingering energy, venture to the hotel's 32nd-floor fitness center; or if it's extra relaxation you seek, book an in-room massage treatment.

    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.

    Windsor Court Hotel
    New Orleans, LA
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1889 reviewsTripAdvisor (1889)
    Free WiFi

    The Windsor Court Hotel, which recently underwent a $15 million renovation, 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. That's not to mention the delicious and refined Southern eats served in The Grill Room. Other nice features include Polo Club Lounge's live contemporary jazz performances five nights a week, or the housekeeping staff's twice-daily room cleaning. Rooms come equipped with a blend of English and French decor, Italian marble baths, 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. What's more, members of the iPrefer rewards program can earn or use points for staying here.

    Hotel Monteleone
    New Orleans, LA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 8881 reviewsTripAdvisor (8881)
    Free WiFi

    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. 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, HDTVs and iHome radios. 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.

    Le Pavillon Hotel

    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 3153 reviewsTripAdvisor (3153)
    Free WiFi

    The standard rooms at Le Pavillon are like elegant works of art with handmade draperies, hand-carved armoires and plush linens. The deluxe rooms even have black marble bathrooms. But some guests say that it’s the lobby that is the real showpiece of this Central Business District property. 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. Recent guests say they liked the French style of the hotel and the professional service, while others mentioned that they experienced reservation problems.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3108 reviewsTripAdvisor (3108)
    Free WiFi

    Bigger sometimes is better, according to recent guests of the Loews New Orleans Hotel. The recently renovated hotel rooms are large and offer modern decor and spacious showers. All accommodations come with 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 new Poydras & Peters Brasserie and Market, 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

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 5490 reviewsTripAdvisor (5490)

    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 relaxing in the comfort rooms, 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 which features a heated outdoor pool. 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.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1128 reviewsTripAdvisor (1128)

    Across the street from Harrah's New Orleans near the French Quarter, Le Méridien New Orleans boasts a central location ideal for sightseers and business travelers. Visitors describe this Le Méridien outpost as "cozy yet professional" with accommodations that feature pillow-top mattresses, 250-thread-count sheets and 55-inch flat-screen TVs. When you're not in your room, you can take a dip in the fourth-floor rooftop pool or get in a workout at the fitness center. After working up an appetite, grab a bite at one of the hotel's two sit-down restaurants. But if you're on a budget, recent guests suggest skipping the restaurants pricey dishes. Guests were more complimentary of the Hub lounge, which offers evening cocktails and free Wi-Fi (there's a fee for in-room internet access). And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    This Hilton does have clean and comfortable rooms and an accommodating staff, but recent guests are quicker to notice the shortcomings. Many were annoyed by the pricey valet parking fee, the charge for in-room Wi-Fi access and the expensive meals at the on-site restaurant. However, recent lodgers do rave about the hotel's ideal location, which is within walking distance of the French Quarter. And all guests can expect standard Hilton amenities in the guest rooms like the brand's Serenity beds, flat-screen TVs and minifridges. If you're a Hilton Honors member you can accrue or cash in accumulated points here.

    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.

    Renaissance New Orleans Arts Warehouse District Hotel
    New Orleans, LA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1250 reviewsTripAdvisor (1250)

    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 comfortable beds, plus amenities like Aveda bath products, minifridges, Wi-Fi access (for a fee) and LCD TVs. The Renaissance New Orleans Arts Warehouse District Hotel also has a heated rooftop pool, something that you won't find at too many luxury hotels in New Orleans. If you're interested, you can appropriately find this property in the gallery-heavy Arts District. And if you're a Marriott Bonvoy member, you can accrue or redeem points by choosing to stay here.

    Sheraton New Orleans Hotel

    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.

    W New Orleans - French Quarter

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1167 reviewsTripAdvisor (1167)

    Surrounded by lots of shops and galleries and close to the excitement of Bourbon Street, the W New Orleans – French Quarter certainly has location in its favor. In addition to its prime locale and cushy brand perks like Bliss beauty products and concierge service, this hotel differentiates itself through its first class hospitality. Recent guests note that the front desk goes the extra mile to make lodgers feel at home. Along with the service-oriented staff, travelers also praise the restaurant and bar SoBou for its knowledgeable servers and varied menu of Louisiana street food-inspired small plates. As far as lodging goes, though, travelers cautioned that the rooms here are small. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    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.

    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.

    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.
