The Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans

Concealed by a stunning Beaux Arts façade, the Ritz-Carlton New Orleans makes a good impression on arrival and follows through right from start to finish.#

Marble communal areas are brought to life with potted plants and flowers, leading into a sun-dappled courtyard with its own fair share of greenery, as well as wrought-iron tables and chairs, trickling water fountains and lanterns lit up at night.

This Canal Street resort is clearly a master in timeless New Orleans elegance, making it a real treat to stay here.

Paying homage to the building’s hundred-year-old heritage, the guestrooms lean towards classic styles though also offer contemporary mod-cons too. Meanwhile, the spa embraces the wider Louisiana region through ingredients such as lemon, coffee and absinthe – there’s even a ‘Voodoo Ritual’ to really get you into the New Orleans spirit, among a hundred other spa treatments!

You can also relish time out in the steam room, hydrotherapy pool, sauna and relaxation rooms, or work out in the gym if the mood takes you while away.

Then there’s the food. Ritz-Carlton New Orleans has just one dining haunt, M Bistro, but that’s all you need when looking at the menu as every time of day spoils you with so many tempting southern dishes, it’s a nice problem to have. This is a chic place too, with a glass roof, polished wood floors, and secret booths for a little more privacy.

After dinner, slide into the Davenport Lounge for cocktails with a side of live Jazz music – the perfect end (or beginning) to an evening in the heart of New Orleans, at the Ritz-Carlton hotel.

Activities and Entertainment

New Orleans is easy to explore from the Ritz-Carlton hotel on Canal Street. Encounter centuries of history and intriguing spots to explore in the French Quarter, including art galleries, restaurants, bars and more. Witness architectural wonders such as Jackson Square, home to St Louis Cathedral, the Cabildo – a former government building and museum, plus beautiful Pontalba edifices dating back to the mid-1800s. Pop into museums such as Presbytere, showcasing the history of the Mardi Gras festival, and be sure to take a stroll down streets like Frenchmen, Bourbon and Pirates Alley, to soak up the addictive charm of New Orleans’ French Quarter.


The spa at Ritz-Carlton New Orleans is vast – 25,000sq ft, in fact – and can feel like heaven in the middle of the city. It encompasses a treatment menu spanning over a hundred different therapies, so there’s plenty to choose from if seeking a little ‘me time’. What’s more, the spa emanates a real sense of place thanks to the locally-sourced ingredients it incorporates: think citrus fruit, coffee, cyprus, even absinthe! Before your treatment, don’t hesitate to utilise the steam room, hydrotherapy pool, sauna, scented showers and relaxation rooms, the latter channelling an old-world feel with its chaise longues and antiques. Also at the hotel is a fitness centre, the Club Level Lounge and Tesla charging bay.
