The Crowne Plaza was fabulous. Great location, good price and excellent service! We could not have been happier.

Great location, nice room, suprisingly found the housekeeping to be shoddy for this type of hotel. The parking is a joke as outlined below.
This is compounded by lack of clarity as to to checkout procedure. We ended up paying cash at the garage (no formal receipt was given, informal after direct request). Staff was pleasant. Pool not as nice as Royal Sonesta which has outdoor bar service and better pool and sunning area.If it was close I would go with Royal Sonesta. I would return to this hotel if the rate was ok.

My girlfriend and I stayed for 6 nights over Easter. This hotel has a great location as it relates to Bourbon St, the French Quarter, and easy access to the Riverwalk area. Also, you can catch the streetcar right out front. Only two areas of concern with the hotel. We could not get a carafe for the coffee maker even though we asked at the front desk and called there twice. I think these must get broken and they do not have extras. Also the ice machine apparently leaked and water came into the room under the door. This made the floor near the door wet. We did not make a big deal of these but I'm sure if we complained more they would have moved us. Overall a very nice location and a good hotel for the price.

This was actually a very good deal for us. We booked 3 nights over the weekend for $83 each night. Three of us stayed in the room. It was right around the corner from ACME oysterhouse and we had blast. Right in the French Quarter, we walked daily to the French Market to eat and browse. The rooms were clean and actually fairly quiet. The fitness center could handle an update, especially the treadmills. The day we checked out, they were in the process of changing all the comforters and beddings. Checkout was simple. All in all a good stay for us.
