New Orleans is a city unlike any other. Its extraordinary mélange of cultures has forged it a unique identity that you’ll experience in everything you do, see and taste when you visit. Ace Hotel New Orleans aims to honor this tradition. Working with renowned designers Roman and Williams, the staff has considered every detail in taking over the 1928 Art Deco former furniture store, adding custom-made, retro-inspired furniture and lighting fixtures and even a two-story music venue. Upstairs, each of the 234 rooms is meticulously designed, with custom furniture inspired by the building’s classic Art Deco design. The beds are covered in beautiful matelassé quilts created specifically for the hotel, and the combination of premium Roman and Williams fixtures and lovely window seats ensure that everything—including you—will remain in the best possible light. The most exciting culinary offering here is arguably Josephine Estelle, helmed by James Beard Award-nominated Tennessean chefs Andy Ticer and Michael Hudman, which will serve Italian osteria cuisine with a Southern twist. There’s also an outpost of Portland’s Stumptown coffee chain, as well as a second Italian eatery, in the panoramic poolside rooftop garden.
In the Area
In New Orleans’ downtown Warehouse District (also known as the Arts District), you’ll be perfectly situated to walk to the bustling French Quarter for beignets and jazz, or hop on the St. Charles streetcar and soak up the glorious homes that line the fabled street. Beyond the Ace’s walls, you’re just quick stroll away from the WWII Museum, the buzzing French Quarter, or the elegant Garden District. When you work up an appetite from all that exploring, lunch at one of the great restaurants on Magazine Street will definitely be in order. Strike up a conversation with any friendly local for a long list of don’t-miss destinations.
How to Get There
Good location just outside of the French Quarter. Room was cute and nice but pretty dark. Room was nice and quiet despite how busy the hotel seemed. Definitely check out the restaurant on the main floor, Josephine Estelle. Very delicious!
The public spaces in the hotel were wonderful and beautiful. The bar staff was friendly but often seemed in the weeds which made it a little uncomfortable at times asking for another drink. Our room was nice but the air conditioning system was not good. We had to call for maintenance in the middle of the night. Seems that there could be a better way to control the system. I believe a previous guest had set a timer on the unit therefore making the room really warm. Overall I thought it was great and this was a surprise weekend for my husband who absolutely LOVED the hotel vibe and feeling.
My Son Brian and Daughter in law, Kathryn, had their wedding at the Ace last Wed and Thursday. On Wednesday, Seaworthy happy hour social, continued to the Ace lounge. Thursday beautiful wedding Ceremony, followed by fabulous wedding dinner at your resturant. It was all just wonderful!
Everyone we encountered, starting with the check-in desk, was wonderful. The friendly and personal service as well as genuine greetings and interactions from all of the staff that we encountered made our stay a wonderful experience. There are plenty of cool/hip/comfortable/convenient hotel rooms to choose from in any city, but the people that you encounter during your stay are what makes the real difference. Amenities are great (and there are plenty at this propoerty) but a genuine and positive attitude will make the difference every time. It is obvious that everyone truly loves their job and that helps create the fantastic buzz you feel when you walk through the front door. Kudos to the Ace Hotel New Orleans staff.
I really loved this hotel! Spotlessly clean, super cool vintage details, great location - you can walk to all the touristy places, quiet (even though we stayed during Mardi Gras), great vibe, big grocery store two blocks away
