Fodor's Expert Review The Ambassador Hotel

535 Tchoupitoulas St., New Orleans, Louisiana, 70130, USA

Editor's Note: This property is currently undergoing renovations.

Bastions of real character in the otherwise corporate CBD, these guest rooms have hardwood floors, oversize windows, and high ceilings, and are furnished with four-poster iron beds, armoires, and local jazz prints. Exposed-brick walls and ceiling fans add to the ambience of the pre–Civil War building. This is a good alternative to the huge convention hotels; you're just steps from the major downtown attractions and the Convention Center, and Harrah's New Orleans Casino is a five-minute walk.

PROS

  • distinctive decor
  • urban-chic atmosphere

CONS

  • some first-floor rooms let in too much noise from street and lobby area
