The hotel is two blocks from the riverfront and just three blocks from the historic French Quarter.
Built from a trio of 19th-century coffee warehouses, the hotel features exposed brick walls, antique wooden beams, and high ceilings throughout. Fodor's calls it "a hotel with real character."
Guest rooms reflect the hotel’s historical vibe with wrought-iron bed frames and antique furniture; many have views of the Arts District.
Walk across the street to Harrah’s New Orleans casino to try your hand at 3,800 slot machines, 100 table games, and more than 20 poker tables.
The Ambassador is less than a 10-minute walk from stations on the city’s historic streetcar lines. Highlights include the French Market on the Riverfront route and views of the Garden District on the Saint Charles route.
Highlights of New Orleans’s French Quarter
Let the good times roll: that's the town’s unofficial Cajun creed (“Laissez les bons temp rouler!"). Priorities here are inclined toward enjoying life and relishing the moment at hand.
Check your attitude at the door: "Stop thinking of New Orleans as the worst-organized city in the United States," writes author Dan Baum in Nine Lives, his post-Katrina book. "Start thinking of it as the best-organized city in the Caribbean."
Feast on beignets under heaping piles of powdered sugar at the legendary Café Du Monde, near the towering St. Louis Cathedral
Neon lights on Bourbon Street advertise frozen cocktails and gaudy strip clubs.
More New Orleans nightlife awaits on the slightly less touristy Frenchmen Street, just north of the Quarter.
Jazz fills the air at the Spotted Cat Music Club, where a sign warns that both drinks and drunks are barred from the piano—but like all rules in New Orleans, it's one that's bound to get bent from time to time.
