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.

Super comfortable

The Crowne Plaza Astor was extremely comfortable, every kind of pillow you could wish for! It's located right on the edge of the French Quarter. The staff is friendly, the food is delicious (try their unique oyster dish - Oysters Fonseca). I will definitely stay there again given the opportunity.

great for business meetings

OUR OFFICE STAYED HEREFOR A BUSINESS MEETING. WE WERE ALL VERY PLEASED WITH OUR EXPERIENCE. THE ROOMS WERE VERY COMFORTABLE AND CLEAN. I WAS ALSO VERY PLEASED WITH THE MENU CHOICE THAT WAS MADE FOR OUR LUNCH, THE FOOD WAS GREAT. THE ONLY THING THAT WAS NOT CLOSE TO PERFECT WAS THE CHECK-IN TIME WAS SLOW. THERE WAS ONLY TWO PEOPLE WORKING THE DESK, AND THIS MADE FOR A LONG LINE AT CHECK-IN AND CHECK- OUT. BUT NOT TO COMPLAN BECAUSE THE PEOPLE WERE VERY POLITE. AND THE FACT THAT THE HOTEL IS IN PRIME LOCATION WAS GREAT WE WALKED TO EVERYTHING.

Nice Hotel

This is a really fine hotel. It is a good location to everything on Bourbon St and anything else from here to the French Market (which is undergoing remodeling) to the Aquarium, the Imax theater, the Mall and the casino. The staff were wonderful and very helpful. The rooms are awesome and the clean staff very effective, but they don't speak English very well, so there is a communication problem if you need to ask them anything. I would definitely stay in this hotel again if I can get the same, great rates.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Remember that Bourbon St is a long street, with lots of city blocks, you are on one end, so it is a long walk from the hotel to the other end of Bourbon St. BUT this is a fantastic location for the French Quarter and other entertainment on Canal from here to the River.

great location, rooms were very nice,

The best location for the quarter. modern hotel but opens onto bourbon street. My college age children could go in and out without having to travel a long way to get to the action. My favorite restaurants were steps away. Once in the hotel at night it was quiet and a world away from the busy night life. Parking is fine but because of the great location on canal you have to work at getting to the valet at times.

Mardi Gras Hospitality

This is the location for the Mardi Gras at the corner of Bourbon and Canal. The hotel is very clean and accomodating to its guest. They gave me a Mardi Gras t-shirt for Fat Tuesday. Also, they gave guest late check out 2:00 pm, which allowed me to go eat lunch shop and still have time to come back to the room to pack. What a great gift!

Unbeatable location for the price

Gracious hosting staff. Oyster Bar was fantastic! Location was perfect for walking on Bourbon Street & French Quarters or to Canal Place or to the Riverwalk. We had guests with us from Norway who really loved their New Orleans experience thanks to the staff and accommodations of the Crowne Plaza Hotel!

Fantastic.Will use when return to NOLA.

We went to celebrate Margi Gras. Location was perfect. Hotel was clean, service was great. The riff raff was kept out of the hotel. Will definitely use this hotel when returning to New Orleans.

Weekend in New Orleans

The Crowne Palace Astor is perfectly situated on the corner of Canal & Bourbon, where you can walk right out onto the action of Bourbon, yet it is far enough up on Bourbon that you can still sleep at night. Within walking distance to all major attractions including French Market, Decatur Street, Frenchmen Street, Harrahs Casino and Canal Street shops. Hotel staff was wonderful! Professional, polite and pleasant. Visit Perry at the Bourbon House for the oysters.

Very short walk to Oceana for a wonderful breakfast. Inexpensive and down home. Also, amazing bloody mary's at Crescent City Brewery from Phillip.
