Embassy Suites New Orleans-Convention Center and Lofts Club Tower
315 Julia St., New Orleans, Louisiana 70130, USA
It’s a solid choice if your trip requires you to be in close proximity to the Convention Center, but a cute outdoor pool, large, multi-roomed suites, and proximity to many award-winning restaurants, galleries and museums also add to this property’s allure.
YOU SHOULD KNOW This hotel property is actually two unconnected buildings, and requires a short walk outside to access the Main building from the Loft Tower.
Guest rooms in the main building have Wi-Fi, mini fridges, and microwaves. The Loft Tower features large one bedroom suites with plantation shutters, and suites in the Main Tower have private (one or two) bedrooms with separate living areas.
The Loft Tower is an older building with features like exposed brick and large windows; book a suite in that section of the hotel if atmosphere matters to you.
The bathrooms are big and roomy, with backlit mirrors and granite counters. They are definitely bathrooms.
There’s a pleasant open-air atrium at the main building’s center, with tables and small chairs for dining or hanging out, and a complimentary beverage and snack station.
There's a shallow outdoor pool on an upper deck of the main building, with complimentary towels and lounge chairs.
There's a fitness center with several cardio machines, free weights, and a stretching area.
Breakfast is complimentary, with eggs and other hot items made to order. On the ground floor, Stacks serves specialty grilled cheeses and Southern comfort food.
Every day from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., guest can help themselves to a choice of complimentary cocktails at the hotel’s “evening reception” in the main building. Stacks also has a full bar.
You're right off the interstate, so driving or taking a car or taxi is an easy way to get around. It's about a 7-minute walk to the closest St. Charles Streetcar stop.
La Boca (4-minute walk) is an Argentine steakhouse with a sexy, date-night atmosphere. Carmo (4-minute walk) has great casual vegan options and Peche (4-minute walk) is a favorite among fresh seafood lovers.
Lucy's Retired Surf Bar (4-minute walk) and Barcadia (5-minute walk) are a few blocks over and provide fun, rowdy atmospheres on the weekend. A 10-minute walk to the other side of the Pontchartrain Expressway, and you'll find local favorite spots like Barrel Proof and Bakery Bar.
WHY WE LIKE IT
