Location! Location! Location!

Located in the historic Bywater District, The Ritz Colton is in the perfect location to spend your New Orleans vacation. Walk the four short blocks each morning to Elizabeth’s where you’ll enjoy one of the best southern breakfasts you can find in the city (fried green tomatoes and Bloody Mary’s!). Then, walk off your meal in Crescent Park along the Mississippi River.

After a quick Lyft ride to the French Quarter, Garden District, or downtown, you can spend a full day experiencing all that New Orleans is famous for – history, culture, historic bars and restaurants, sightseeing and more fun than you can imagine. Be sure and check out our list of favorite places in New Orleans or spend some time reading the guide books and brochures we leave for you before you venture out.
