Previously the Astor Hotel, the multi-story Crowne Plaza New Orleans French Quarter grew organically from a collection of existing retail buildings and apartments, giving it a blended Crescent City charm. Inside, ironwork stair-rails, exposed brick walls, and mismatched lobby seating continues this feel. Conversely, the modern offerings of an outdoor pool, Internet access (fees apply), and a vast 30,000-feet of event space bring the building up to date. Pay a visit to Dickie Brennan's Bourbon House Restaurant for the best in local seafood and a cozy Southern welcome.

Neighborhood
Where the bustling business of Canal Street meets the revelry of Bourbon Street, the Crown Plaza French Quarter exists square in the center of the party. Walk a few blocks toward the river and you can follow Decatur Street, parallel to the main artery of New Orleans, the Mississippi River. Walk along Decatur to pass Jackson Square and head toward Esplanade to experience the French Quarter. Business visitors may be coming for larger events at the nearby Morial Convention Center, and sports fans will find the Mercedes-Benz Superdome - home of the Saints football team - not far away.

The Crown Plaza French Quarter Hotel is in a central area, but fares within the city are low enough to make short cab rides an affordable luxury.
When staying during annual events such as Mardi Gras, the Essence Festival or the Sugar Bowl, expect minimum stay requirements for this in-demand location.

Excellent place to stay

Hotel was very good. Difficulty is in valet parking. Very congested area and difficult to drop car off. What's the worst is getting your car out of the garage - not a real busy time and it took at least a half hour.

NO FREE PARKING

Search results to produce this hotel included "Free Parking", but once I arrived at the hotel I found that the only parking available was Valet. Once I got into the hotel, they upgraded my room to a suite, which was huge. It was a very nice experience, other than the wait required for the valet...

Perfect! (Almost...)

Two complaints: Parking is a huge problem. There is nowhere to park and valet parking at the hotel is very expensive as it is in any big city. There is no refirigerator in the room. Otherwise, this was a PERFECT location in a perfectly lovely hotel. Comfy bed with nice linens, lovely staff, wonderful views of the city, and street access to Canal and Bourbon Streets. On the same block as Felix's and Acme Oyster bars, this spot is within a short walk of any number of high-end or yummy dive restaurants. The hotel restuarant is Bourbon House....a beautiful place offering all of the dishes for which New Orleans is known along with wonderful cocktails. Speaking of cocktails, the downstairs bar is a terrific place to just get comfy and knock back a few. Big squishy chairs and amazing service brought us there each night of our stay. We aso spent some time on the 3rd floor balcony pool which was very private with great views of the Bourbon Street fun. I have been to New Orleans many, many times and this was my very favorite place to stay!

Pre-Mardi Gras / Super Bowl Vacay

The location of this hotel is perfect! The front doors open to Canal St, which was perfect because there were many parades throughout the weekend, as the city was gearing up for Mardi Gras. We were able to walk into the French Quarter/ Bourbon Street/ Jackson Square within 5 minutes, which made it very nice if we wanted to swing back to the hotel to drop off souvenirs, etc. The hotel was very clean, and had an upbeat vibe. The cost of the hotel was influenced by location, as there really wasn't anything too special about the decor or hotel itself (not to take away from the hotel - just nothing overly exciting). The hotel bar was very busy - seemed like a popular spot earlier in the evening.

Visit Felix's for amazing oysters (they were my first ever!) Visit Hotel Monteleone's Carousel Bar - it actually spins! Visit Frenchman Street if you want to feel like a local.

Great location and staff. Parking is a challenge. Room was good but AC was not working well. We have stayed here many times and I do still reccomend it.

Could not ask for a better location!

This location was just the best! Close to the famous Bourbon St. and the historic trolley cars were also just steps away. Great location for dining, gambling, touring, and shopping. I could not ask for a better location.

A great place to stay

I've been to New Orleans 4 times now and 3 of those times, I've stayed at the Astor Crowne Plaza. It's my go-to hotel - clean, comfortable, good location and the price is right.
