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.
Hints and tips
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.

As Close to Bourbon Street Without Being On It !!!!

We were very pleased with our hotel selection. Convenient to everything we went to do. The Riverwalk, Bourbon Street, nice restaurants, street car transportation (makes the Garden District and Zoo easily accessible), great seafood ( I ate oysters on half shell everyday !!). We would stay there again.

Nice Hotel

Great location; clean. The sun didn't shine on the pool until 2:00 pm but otherwise, pool area was nice. Bourban Street Restaurant in hotel was excellent. Overall a very nice stay. Only wish it had a balcony to sit out on to enjoy the happenings!

Good stay

Close to the mardigras action. I'd say the location was great... Close to food and CVS across the street.

The BEST beds EVER!!

This hotel is set in a wonderful location, with all the bells and whistles. It had the most comfortable, clean beds, I think I've ever slept in. If I ever go back to New Orleans, Astor Crowne Plaza it will be!
