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
We visited the place on a Friday for relaxing by the pool and lunch. It was $20pp to get in and the drinks/food were expensive. The space is nice, but crowded and there were too many kids for us. Also, not enough shade.
This hotel is awesome!!! Nostalgic decor makes you feel as if you're back in the 40s in the south. It is CLEAN and AWESOME HOSPITALITY and CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! The restaurant food was delicious too. I cant say enough about this hotel. I really enjoyed my 4 day stay. WITH IN WALKING DISTANCE/FEW BLOCKS FROM CANAL and BOURBON STREET.
A friend recommended this hotel to us, and having stayed at the Ace in New York I was optimistic. I was right to be. It is in a great location (as well as being a short walk from downtown there is a Rouses supermarket nearby which we loved!), and is very welcoming. There is a lovely friendly atmosphere in the hotel.
Our room was fabulous, roomy, with a large Smeg fridge, air conditioning, a sofa and a record player. The bed was really comfortable, and the bathroom clean, with the most powerful toilet flush in the world! We loved it here and wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
