Fodor's Expert Review The Ambassador Hotel
535 Tchoupitoulas St., New Orleans, Louisiana, 70130, USA
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
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.
- distinctive decor
- urban-chic atmosphere
- some first-floor rooms let in too much noise from street and lobby area
