I just returned from a weekend with friends in New Orleans. We all stayed at the Astor Crown Plaza on the corner of Canal and Bourbon Streets. I have to say for the location this has to be one of the best hotels for comfort and convenience. It's close enough to the local attractions that you don't need a car or a cab, but it's also just far enough away from the the noise coming from Bourbon St. My room was on a corner on the 7th floor over looking Bourbon St. and I could barely hear anything. I was pleasantly surprised to find bathrobes in the closet and a refrigerator. Compared to the rooms my friends had, it seemed like I had a junior suite. (it could have been because it was on a corner) The restaraunt downstairs has wonderful food. Infact a lot of people seem to think so too because there were more than just hotel guest dining there. I have stayed in several hotels in and around the French Quarter area, and I have to say this one is becoming my favorite. When you walk in you feel like you are walking into a much classier hotel than one owned by Holiday Inn. The only complaint I had was the parking situation. You pretty much have to use the valet service and you have to make the block a couple of times before you can slide into the unloading zone. Once you get unloaded they inform you of the $31.00 a day fee for parking. I guess you have to expect that in a large city. I sucked it up and paid it just so I wouldn't have to search for parking on my own. Overall I would recomend this hotel to anyone.
