The Crowne Plaza NEW ORLEANS FRENCH QUARTER in New Orleans makes its visitors comfortable in their spacious rooms that feature plush bedding, dark wood furnishings and bright pops of decorative elements.

The front entry to the hotel is stately with its bright red awning and large windows. A member of the attentive staff is available 24 hours a day at the front desk, making it easy for visitors to access information about the vibrant area.

An outdoor pool and terrace gives people a place to cool off when the weather is warm, and business-oriented travelers can take advantage of over 32,000 square feet of function rooms and a business center with complimentary Wi-Fi. Valet parking is available.

Location
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.
Highlights

Within the hotel, you'll find Dickie Brennan's Bourbon House Restaurant and Oyster Bar, a place that offers seafood freshly caught from the nearby waters. Guests can also order room service at any time of day or night and take advantage of the in-room coffee maker to get a fresh start every morning.

The fitness center is a great place to work off the calories after eating decadent New Orleans cuisine. People looking to meet up before heading out to Bourbon Street or Jackson Square, each just half a mile away, can enjoy cocktails at the lobby bar.

Very Quiet despit ebeing RIGHT THERE

Perfect location and surprisingly serene inside. We were right on the edge of the French Quarter, but also convenient to the St Charles streetcar line to pop into the Garden District or over to Tulane.

Wonderful weekend getaway

You cannot pick a better location! Just close enough to enjoy Bourbon Street in minutes but far enough away to not hear the constant partying! Close to the streetcars, shopping, music, dining. A perfect place to stay!

WWII Museum Trip

The hotel is located right on Canal Street, just a half block from the street car line, so quite convenient for getting around. Staff was pleasant, but had some confusion about my reservation. Room was quite well furnished and beds were excellent. Shower rod was not level so curtain wouldn't stay closed causing wet floor. Overall, a good experience.

Great place to stay

Great location. Nice hotel. Centrally located in NOLA and close to French Quarter and all attractions. Also, oyster bar attached to restaurant is excellent and well worth going to. Highly recommended.

weekend getaway

The Crowne Plaza New Orleans French Quarter is in a great location. Everything in the French Quarter is just a short walk away. The great location can also be a detriment. My room was situated on the 3rd floor with a great view of Canal Street. However, that room location is way too noisy. The noise was so loud from Canal Street that I felt like I was on the street. Other than that the room was nice and you can't beat the location.

Personal trip to scope out wedding venue

The rooms were somewhat shabby, but relatively clean. The lobby is still nice and the restaurant very good. We like 4-5 star hotels and this one was not.

Depends on which side of the hotel you are on

My wife and I stayed here hoping to enjoy the French Quarter, but not be consumed by the rowdy crowd. Unfortunately, on night 1, our room faced Bourbon street and we could hear partying from 10pm-5am. We did not sleep a wink. Thankfully, the staff switched our room for nights 2 and 3 to the side of the hotel facing the alley and it was very, very quiet. We were put in a room right next to the elevators, but compared to the partiers, the elevator noise was manageable. Someone vomited in the hallway outside our room on night 3, which made the walk to the elevator unpleasant, but our room smelled fine. Definitely come with eyes wide open - we didn't and it took us a bit to adjust. Ultimately, we had a nice stay. However, in future, I would book a hotel a few blocks from Bourbon Street, not directly on it.

Great stay!

Could not find a better location to visit New Orleans. A great hotel, parking is expensive, but in this area it is normal.

Hotel is so-so

They were not able to check in guests till 4.30pm because of rooms not being ready, and then expected everyone to checkout at 11am, not sure what they were planning on doing in the 5+ hours gap.
