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
I stayed here for Halloween. Room was large and very eclectic. The right place to stay for Halloween: guests in costume and very vintage furnishings. Those of you that know the Hotel Cortez in TV’s AHS will know what I mean. Great happy hour in the bar. Only about a 5 block easy walk to/from the Quarter which results in a much quieter environment. The only caveat for my stay was that 2 of the 3 elevators were down one day. Took me 15 minutes to go and return for ice from the 6th floor to the 2nd floor which is where the only ice machine is located. But, this is Nawlins, and any visitor knows that you come here for a multitude of reasons. This place (the Ace) is very cool and you’ll be pleased with a stay.
The friendly atmosphere is contagious here..the rooms are large clean and lovely. I would highly recommend The Ace hotel. From the front desk to the room service they should be proud of all the staff members..they aim to please!!
I stayed at the Ace Hotel in July with a friend when we were in town for a legal conference. Our stay was great! The rooms were clean and the staff was very helpful and courteous, even when we had to make a last minute change to our reservations, the staff assisted us promptly over the phone and honored our original discount code. While we did experience a broken toilet when we first arrived the issue was rectified within 15 minutes. Staff members Justin and Kent were particularly helpful at the front desk. They always had great suggestions for restaurants and night time entertainment.They were also super funny and down to earth! The hotel is also walking distance from everything and placed in a great location. I will definitely stay there the next time I am in town.
My husband and I returned to celebrate my birthday in August of 2018 for 10 nights (our third stay). Chad (I am pretty sure that was his name) at the front desk couldn't have been more professional and kind. We arrived early so we set out to get some food. He called to let us know our room was ready (which only took about 45 minutes) and got my voicemail. Then he called back a few minutes later to make sure I had received the voice mail. Arriving at our room we were ecstatic to have been courtesy upgraded to our favorite corner room on the 8th floor. More surprises…waiting for me in the room was a bottle of wine, a fruit plate and a birthday note from the Ace. Then Chad called the room to check on us before he left his shift for the day to make sure we were settled in. Service does not get better than that. It really made an impression on me. All the staff is so friendly and charming. Some of us were on a first name basis by the time we left and we felt so welcomed.
I love the lobby bar (where it always 5:00…I see you bar clock) and the music scene is always diverse and vibrant (just like the bar crowd.) We heard some great bands from a “lounge music” DJ to an incredible funk band.
And yes the pool can get a bit crowded in the summer months. Who cares? It’s part of the fun and we always end up talking to other travelers or locals.
The Ace Hotel in NOLA feels like home to me. Thank you Ace for making my big milestone birthday so wonderful. We’ll be back.
I have a work conference in NOLA April 2019 and unfortunately, The Ace wasn’t listed as a conference hotel option. I’m sure the other hotel will be fine but I will probably find myself saying this a lot, “It’s no Ace.” Till next time.
This was my birthday trip and check-in day was the day. A staff on the counter celebrated my birthday the he always cared about me whether my birthday plan is going good or not. Few Ace Hotels in US I have stayed but Ace Hotel New Orleans is the best Ace Hotel ever for me!
