My wife and I stayed there in May. It's really cool. The rooms are all done over and somewhat different from anything I have seen before. The area is really safe and is only a short walk to the french quarter. have fun.
Hey Husker! I am from New Orleans and will be going on the Inspiration in August as well. But I have to tell you no such thing as a safe place in New Orleans Just don't let your guard down and be careful, okay?!
Just returned from that wonderful city. We stayed at the Ambassador and I can assure you that you will not find a staff anywhere more willing to help and be of service than at the Ambassador. I do caution you to be very alert and aware when you leave the hotel and go anywhere in New Orleans - just like any big city. Enjoy - and have an extra cup of that lucious coffee at Cate Du Monde for me - and smooth sailing to ya'll.
