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.

Crowne Plaza Hotel Astor New Orleans

Only negative was coffee maker ... had the wrong coffee packets and we had no trash can. Other than that it was great. I would definitely stay there again and I come to New Orleans many times a year and have stayed at a lot of the hotels.

"Unbeatable location for the price"

We went to New Olreans for the French Quarter Festival. This hotel was a short walking distance to everything!

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.

There are a number of good places to dine at night -- like Olivier's near the hotel.
