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.

Essence Festival 2009

This tops my other favorite hotel The Doubletree on Canal, everything was so beautiful , service was excellent. Even with the large crowd of people in town your staff was excellent. All of the activities were just minutes away . I will return in 2010.

Great Location and Great Staff

We chose this hotel because of location and price. It was worth the money being in the middle of the French quarter. The staff was also extremely helpful and flexible.

DO NOT try La Bayou restaurant (on Bourbon)! The service was horrible and, it was the only bland, bad meal we experienced while visiting.

Close to everything we wanted!

Very accommodating staff. We were able to check in early( 2 pm instead of 4 pm) and check out late ( 2 pm instead of 11 am) to fit our flight schedule . Their restaurant had some awesome food.everywhere we wanted to see and visit is just either a few blocks away or right down the alley.

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.
