Everything about this hotel just oozes class.
The huge, imposing building standing proudly on the edge of the French Quarter and overlooking Canal Street, the Ritz is a perfect blend of quality, from the sumptuous spa to the M Bistro. The club level rooms are just about the finest accommodation experience in the city, with a private entrance and lounge.
At the weekends, you can sip a cocktail in the bar whilst local jazz maestro Jeremy Davenport trumpets his way through the American songbook, and then retire to the private club-like environs of the Library Bar for a nightcap. Well worth splashing out on.
