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
The staff were fantastic here in the hotel. The downstairs restaurant less so (but I won't let that spoil my review).
A great rooftop pool which locals and US holiday makers came to, even if not staying at the hotel. Real good vibes and friendly / homely service.
Good Wi-Fi and the rooms were basic but comfortbale enough.
Really cool hotel.
- Loved front desk / door / luggage team
- So cool to have pool + restaurant + coffee shop + bar + boutiques + oyster place all right there
- Great location in general (close to French Quarter but not too close)
- Feel great about value (bang for buck)
- Pool was great, but would recommend a better process for the chair reservations (90% of chairs had a towel and 0 humans at all times); perhaps have shelves or something for people to put towel and wallet if they don't plan to actually use a chair?
- Black toilets are weird, but otherwise the room is really cool
- Excellent place for a young, hip guest; I'm sure you get some bad reviews from folks who should have picked a different hotel (if they had done more research); we thought it was perfect for us
- Concert venue at night is SO cool, although we didn't really take advantage of it
Stayed with a few friends during Essence Fest- nice party atmosphere in the hotel - However the hotel was so busy that the attention to detail (esp housekeeping) became a major issue. I appreciate the hotel are trying to keep a theme going and the lobby I felt was stunning- The rooms however are dark and dated (at least provide extra lighting in the bathrooms for makeup etc).The pool area is not exclusively for hotel guests so be warned!
The AC units are too noisy . The beds and pillows were terrible . Mixed reviews from staff - some were pleasant - others looked as if they really did not want to be there.
