"The One & Only"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Certain names have become synonymous with the finer things of life. In the hotel industry, that name is the Ritz-Carlton. It is located on world famous Canal Street
, just a block from Bourbon Street
. Ample seating inside and out provide a place to unwind, or gear up for an exciting day. Every detail has been attended to, and every face greets you with a salutation. Rooms are spacious and in mint condition. Splurge for the Club upgrade to enjoy access to a 24 hour lounge with refreshments and other amenities. The Ritz Carlton in New Orleans is a destination unto itself.
