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.
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.

Great Hotel. perfect location

The front desk and security seemed to be polite but not very competent. Had to provide names and IDs twice "our system made a mistake". Got a check out bill which was twice as high, by another mistake. Everything was resolved at the end.

unbeatable location for the price

It was every thing I had hoped for.The king-sized bed was very comfortable. Room service was excellent.The hotel was just a block away from where everything is going on,the French quarter, shops,restaurants,etc.

Good location and comfortable rooms.

Great front desk and concierge staff. Thoughtful housekeeping staff. Roomy rooms. $31/day valet parking (with delays and tips tied to each time you needed your car) rather than an attached garage for guests was the only thing we did not like. Food options in the hotel were too costly for a family with two teens with big appetites.

A good place and good location

Good experiecne and the hotel has a great location just off burbon street. However, the noise from the neighbouring spots is high and I had to sleep with ear plugs to avoid the noise. Parking service is provided through valet parking and it was abut 30 dollars for half a day.

Superb Location, food - Valet hectic

The location is great for FQ walkers. We never got our car until we were ready to check out. Valets were nice, but it took forever to get car because of where they had to park, and can get very hectic at busy times. I guess thats what you give up for the great address right on Canal and Bourbon. Everything is in walking distance, and the Restaurant in the hotel was great. Newer TV's would be a nice touch, along with some variety of pillows. But I would definately stay there again.
