Second time staying here as a IHG Platinum, we chose it for the location. Lengthy check in - about 30 minutes to checkin, the longest I have ever experienced. We were prebooked, etc..etc.. everything against my IHG PC number. When we finally got to the desk, no welcome, no nothing just a surly receptionist with zero personality who seemed to... More

Rooms are very nice, clean and overall happy with the hotel. This hotel has no parking of its own. Had to use the hotel valet - roughly $40/day. I would absolutely stay here again but would research parking options first.

We stayed on the 8th floor above Bourbon Street and I worried about noise, but we were fine. Very friendly staff allowed us to check in early. Our room was very clean and the concierge was helpful in guiding us toward activities. I would definitely stay here again.

We were kind of nervous about staying here due to the bad reviews. We were greatly surprised!! The hotel and room were clean and the bellman Chris was very nice and gave us some great tips on the area!! You are not allowed to get a cart and take trolly your own bags up, a bellman has to do it.... More

For a Crowne Plaza, the top of the Holiday Inn "Food Chain", the hotel is OK. Room furnishings are a little bit dated. The front desk staff are exceptional. We were greeted by Shenita with a smile and I felt as if she was actually glad to have us as a guest. The valet parking is a shambles. There is... More

To begin with, everywhere in New Orleans seems tired and somewhat run down. It's a party town and I can't imagine maintaining a party property like this. Overall, the room was clean and about what I expected. Nothing great, nothing terrible. The carpet was dirty and a big red "Hawaiian punch" stain on the floor. Bed linens were clean but... More

I was very concerned after reading the reviews and almost changed my reservation. Fortunately I did not because our stay was great. The check-in assistance from Kim was excellent. She was friendly and very professional. The room was not on the Bourbon side,so it was quiet. The rooms are outdated but the room was clean. The mattress was firm but... More

This hotel is very elegant. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very spacious and clean. It is located in the middle of the action in the French Quarter. I would highly recommend this hotel.

We have stayed in this hotel several times. However, it has been over a year since our last visit...and something is different. The sheets felt like cardboard. The bed was uncomfortable. The inside staff wasn't as friendly as normal. But, it is still a great location.

Greetings Thejanipa, We appreciate you taking the time to post your comments about your stay. You are correct, we have had some hotel management changes recently and some changes have been made. I am sorry that the bed was uncomfortable and that you felt your staff interactions were not friendly. This most certainly is not how we want our guests... More
