Being the first time to visit New Orleans we did not know what to expect. We were more than pleased with the Crowne Plaza. It is located in the heart fo the French Quarter at the corner of Canal and Bourbon Streets.
The Valet service (especially Jonathan) and Bell Hop service (thank you Eric) were efficient, friendly and very welcoming. I had read that the $31.60/day valet service was pricey, but when I researched parking on our own in such a crowded area, I found that we would pay $20+/day and not have the liberty of retreiving our car whenever we wanted for the same price. So having the professionals and the security was well worth the extra $10/day.
The accomodations were superb. From the cleanliness, decor, hot water and water pressure to the excellent staff we could not have been happier. The concierge gentleman was very informative and we enjoyed our chat with him.
The restaurants and lounges in the hotel were great. However, just outside is Bourbon Street so you have plenty of food, entertainment and shopping at your finger tips.
On the second floor there are conference rooms, but also a great balcony overlooking Bourbon Street where you can enjoy looking out over the nightlife and nightlights as you listen to the impromptu Jazz music that seems to appear in the evening at the corner of Canal and Bourbon.
We will definitely return.
