I’ve always loved attending the Mom 2.0 Summit, and this years’ summit took place at the Ritz-Carlton in New Orleans. Great content, plus a luxurious stay? I purchased a ticket almost a year in advance.
The Ritz-Carlton New Orleans is located in the French Quarter, on Canal Street. The amazing service started right upon arrival, when the bell and lobby staff greeted me with a smile. My room, located in a corner on the 6th floor, was beautiful and spacious, with two double beds, a desk, a closet, and a medium-sized bathroom.
Internet access was included with the room, but I’m not sure if that was a perk of being part of the conference. In-room access was either wireless or wired, and worked well, however, we did have some difficulty logging on in the conference space. The Ritz staff was responsive, and resolved the problem quickly.
Despite the beauty of the hotel, in my experience, the best part of the Ritz-Carlton New Orleans is the amazing service. The staff goes out of their way to be friendly and helpful, and every staff member I passed by greeted me with a smile and a “How are you?”. They also were eager to offer directions and suggestions, even pointing out the best and safest walking path. Of course, the amenities are also wonderful – turn down service, free bottled water, luxurious robes and slippers, and flat-screen televisions.
