New Orleans news

We will be in New Orleans June 23 through the 27th for the ALA convention. If anyone out there can tell us about the Crowne Plaza hotel and good eateries and bars nearby, it would be much appreciated. Thanks

The Astor Crowne Plaza essentially is at the corner of Bourbon St and Canal St. It housed numerous FEMA workers and Evacuees until recently and underwent a refurbishing after their departure...has had good reviews and is close to all the fun in the French Quarter.

Numerous bars and eateries within a few blocks..The Bourbon House has mixed reviews and is part of the hotel..additional Brennan Restaurants close by are the Redfish Grill, Palace Cafe, Dickie Brennan's Steak House all serve quality food in a business casual atmosphere...GWFins on Bienville St has excellent seafood..More upscale would be Galatoire's at 209 Bourbon St...More casual Zydecue on Iberville for Ribs, BBQ etc...Acme Oyster House on Iberville favored by many for its great Oyeter Bar and fried seafood...my favorite is the Fried Oyster PO'Boy.

Numerous bars abound, many open 24 hrs and many with live music....If it's your first visit just go with the flow and let the good times roll..enjoy your conference and the city.
