The Crowne Plaza NEW ORLEANS FRENCH QUARTER in New Orleans makes its visitors comfortable in their spacious rooms that feature plush bedding, dark wood furnishings and bright pops of decorative elements.

The front entry to the hotel is stately with its bright red awning and large windows. A member of the attentive staff is available 24 hours a day at the front desk, making it easy for visitors to access information about the vibrant area.

An outdoor pool and terrace gives people a place to cool off when the weather is warm, and business-oriented travelers can take advantage of over 32,000 square feet of function rooms and a business center with complimentary Wi-Fi. Valet parking is available.

Location
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.
Highlights

Within the hotel, you'll find Dickie Brennan's Bourbon House Restaurant and Oyster Bar, a place that offers seafood freshly caught from the nearby waters. Guests can also order room service at any time of day or night and take advantage of the in-room coffee maker to get a fresh start every morning.

The fitness center is a great place to work off the calories after eating decadent New Orleans cuisine. People looking to meet up before heading out to Bourbon Street or Jackson Square, each just half a mile away, can enjoy cocktails at the lobby bar.

Personal trip to scope out wedding venue

The rooms were somewhat shabby, but relatively clean. The lobby is still nice and the restaurant very good. We like 4-5 star hotels and this one was not.

perfectly adequate

This is a once-grand hotel now part of the Crowne Plaza change. It seems to cater mostly to tourists and professional groups. I was in New Orleans on business. While I was there, the lobby was always teeming with people. The front desk staff were polite but not very knowledgeable. The hotel is on Canal St., right on the edge of the French Quarter (Bourbon Street, to be exact). If that's the location you desire, and if you can get a good rate, then this might be a fine place to stay.

Jimmy J's, a 5-minute walk from the hotel, is an excellent little breakfast place. Unusual but delicious fare.

Great Hotel

Hotel is great! Great location, room was comfortable, all the extras were great. The staff could have been a little nicer in my opinion. If I am paying that much per night, there are certain courtesies I expect from a hotel staff. The bathroom could have been a little cleaner, there was some hairs around the toilet area. As I stated before, if I am going to pay that much per night, there are certain things that I expect. I wanted to give this hotel a 4-4.5 star rating, but the location and comfort of the room was enough for me to give it 5 stars.

No serious complaints

Room was alright. Comfortable bed but near impossible to sleep next to the elevators and with the buildings old plumbing that sounded as if it was struggling all night long. Reception and lobby staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly. I would stay here again if I could find a good deal on the nightly price.

Good location, Not the best amenities

Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights on a business trip. My phone in the room didn't work and the walls were paper thin you could hear everything. The room was clean and the location was great, but I had wished there had been a bit more for the amount I paid.

Right on Bourbon Street

Location, location, location! Location was the best. The room was very clean and neat. Service was ok. The room was cold and the thermostat wouldn't adjust for heat.
