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, free Wi-Fi (fees may 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

The room was very nice and clean. The location is unbeatable; however, with the great location comes the noise from Bourbon Street at night. I am a heavy sleeper so it didn't bother me that much. I would stay here again.

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!

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.

Great location, Bourbon and Canal

The Crowne Plaza was a nice hotel, right there on Canal at the corner of Bourbon, so everything was very convenient. The hotel was undergoing some renovations, but we did not experience anything negative because of it. The CP properties are the ones where being a Priority Club member really helps. We had access to the lounge with free made to order breakfast, as well as cocktails during happy hour!

take the airport shuttle from the airport $13.00 for the ride and you get a tour of the city, takes you to any of the hotel's. and the casino is only 2 block's away.

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.

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.
