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.

The Big Easy

Astor Crowne Plaza New Orleans is in the perfect location! steps away from the action....but a very restful hotel. Beautiful rooms and wonderful service. The only complaint is that you have to pay almost 30.00 per day for parking....We never used our car once, but still was charged 27.00 per day to park it.

Affordable and comfortable

The Crown Plaza provided comfortable rooms and the convenient location to Bourbon Street. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The concierge in the lobby was approachable and helped us with directions around the city. I especially liked the air condition unit in our room. It wasn't the vented box under the window that blows and is loud. The air conditioning unit had a punch pad to control the temperature and was very quiet. There was plenty of room in between the beds along the wall to put our luggage. I was extremely happy with our visit.

The restuarant downstairs was to notch. Their crab legs were highly recommended by the locals and their oysters were big!

Great Location in the heart of New Orleans

The Crowne Plaza Astor Hotel is New Orleans was very spacious and comfortable. I felt very much at home there as the staff was all very helpful and kind. The beds were the most comfortable beds, I didn't want to get up. They would help you find good dining, shopping and tourist attractions. The Hotel has an excellent Steak House right there and anything else you would need. It is also within walking distance to all the sites, shopping, dining and French Quarter. It is fairly close to the River Walk and the Casino too. It had a ATM right there for easy access. I would stay at this hotel everytime I come to New Orleans in the future and I have stayed in that city at least 28-30 times.

Fitness Center & Dining

The fitness center was closed for renovations and it would have been helpful to know that at the time of making reservations. The dining options are limited to a fairly expensive restaurant on premises. We are accustomed to hotels which offer either a complimentary are at least reasonably priced alternative especially for breakfast.

most honest hotel staff

I left a t-mobile brand new PDA internet ready phone worth ?350 in the room and didn't find out until I was in Britain nearly three weeks later. When I called the hotel they had the phone in their safe. The housemen had handed it in after finding it in the room. The staff were lovely. I wasn't pleased with the price of a cup of coffee in the lobby or the price of local calls $1.50. But everything else was top notch. The furniture wasn't shabby, sheets sparkling white and crisp, bathroom a dream. Yes I would definatly recommend staying here, right in the heart of New Orleans French Quarter.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

Take a trip on the local trolley cars. It's cheap and you get to see lots. When you've had enough, hop off and get one back the other way to the French Quarter.

Near everything

The Crowne Plaza Hotel Astor was very comfortable. It is located walking distance to most sites including Jackson Square. You have to valet park on check-in, so that was somewhat of a hassle. The staff was promp and courteous. I wouild recommend this hotel to anyone.
