Located in a Canal Street landmark—the venerable Maison Blanche department store—the Ritz brings its chain-wide style of formal luxury to the outer edge of the French Quarter. Ritz regulars will recognize both the aesthetic (hardwood floors, Oriental rugs, gilt-framed artwork) and the attention to detail (an umbrella in the closet, a necessity for this subtropical city). Ornate armoires replace the usual chest of drawers and hide the flat-screen TV. Downy duvets and mountains of decorative pillows cover luxurious, extra-thick mattresses. Marble-clad bathrooms in the Club-level rooms come stocked with Bulgari toiletries, powerful rainfall showerheads, and deep soaking tubs. Non-couples who would normally end up sharing a standard "double double" room—two double beds—will appreciate the "double king" option, a spacious layout that's just shy of a suite (in terms of price and size) but offers plenty of room for work and lounging. The on-site restaurants provide plenty of live music and swanky ambiance—legendary trumpet player Jeremy Davenport serenades diners in his eponymous bar/lounge while the M Bistro serves up standards with various levels of New Orleans influence (filet of beef with crabmeat béarnaise sauce, muffuletta panzanella, sous-vide redfish topped with crawfish etouffee).
