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.
New Orleans’s French Quarter: Let the Good Times Roll
"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." Some folks think there is something distinctly foreign about New Orleans, a place where people’s priorities seem inclined toward enjoying life and relishing the moment at hand. Nothing says it better than the town’s unofficial Cajun creed: “Laissez les bons temp rouler,” or "Let the good times roll."
Historical buildings with intricate wrought-iron balconies line the narrow streets of New Orleans’s French Quarter. Here, street musicians often fill the air with jazz music, their trombones and tubas swinging back and forth. Just off the Jackson Square park and near the towering St. Louis Cathedral, the legendary Café Du Monde serves beignets under heaping piles of powdered sugar, as well as cups of iced or steaming café au lait.
And then there's Bourbon Street, where neon lights advertise frozen cocktails and gaudy strip clubs and crowds gather along 13 city blocks. The nearby Frenchmen Street, just north of the Quarter, provides a slightly less touristy taste of New Orleans nightlife. Some of the city’s most popular live jazz and blues bars dominate this historic two-block district, with each venue hosting world-class musicians nearly every night of the week. 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.

The rustic looking hallways and rooms were gorgeous! The staff was super informative and helpful! Their lobby was being renovated while I was there, so I'm sure it'll be gorgeous soon! (The construction crew was very courteous.)
