Ritz – Carlton, New Orleans – Review

“Putting on the Ritz”

The word ritz means, “ostentatious luxury and glamor” and it used in the English pop culture to mean any luxurious accommodation. It is great fun to stay at the REAL Ritz and enjoy where it all began!

The history of the hotel chain is a complicated one, but started out with the Swiss hotelier Cesar Ritz. He was known as the king of hoteliers and hotelier to kings. He was the end all be all in luxury comfort hotels in Europe and would surely be proud of his name sake hotels now.

As with any real estate, whether you intend to buy, rent or just visit location is KING! The lovely hotel is right in the heart of the French Quarter on the main street: Canal. Walk to nearby Bourbon Street or catch a cab to the local attractions. Mardi Gras World has a free shuttle that comes to the front door of the Ritz.
