New Orleans is a world unto itself, where delicious food, Mardi Gras revelry and inimitable music are all part of the city’s traditions and character. It’s difficult to avoid falling for its lovely European architecture, and the city’s sights and sounds mingle to create a powerful experience no vacationer is likely to forget. New Orleans’ subtropical climate means you can expect fairly warm weather, and remember that summer is the city's wettest season, so pack an umbrella.
Things to See This eclectic Southern city will undoubtedly satisfy your taste buds with delicious Cajun and Creole cuisine, but it will also delight your other senses. If you're craving a party, you won’t have to wait until Mardi Gras to visit. You can wander down Bourbon Street any day of the week to take in New Orleans' outstanding nightlife. Mellow out with the blues at Funky Pirate, ride the mechanical bull at Bourbon Cowboy or put on a karaoke show at Cat's Meow. If you still want more of New Orleans' music scene, head over to Frenchmen Street to hear authentic local jazz at landmarks like Snug Harbor.
New Orleans has more than just nightclubs to keep you enthralled. Jackson Square, located in the French Quarter, is a necessary stop for history buffs. Gaze at the Cabildo, the building where the Louisiana Purchase changed the nation forever, and admire the St. Louis Cathedral before meandering through the Presbytère’s Mardi Gras exhibit. If you’re traveling with children, City Park has hundreds of acres of open green space. Storyland and Carousel Gardens Amusement Park are sure to please the youngest members of your group.

Recently stayed at this hotel and realized that the free breakfast for platinum customers had been discontinued. For the amount of points required to stay here, this is not a good value. We can stay[More]
at other IHG hotels for fewer points and also receive free breakfast. We will probably not stay at Crowne Plaza in the future because of this change. [Less]
This hotel was close to everything but yet far enough away from the hub-bub of Bourbon St to allow us to quiet leisure time at the hotel. Hotel pricing was competitive for the area which tends to be[More]
quite pricey. There was an armed guard in the lobby which may distress some people but he was a great personality and a wealth of information about places in the area. The counter staff were wonderful as was the bell captain. We didn't try the restaurant because we were only in NOLA for a couple of days but the menu was varied and it smelled delicious. The bar area was not busy and the service was excellent. They serve a great Sazerac! [Less]

actually napped for the first time in years. Loved everything about my stay.
Thank you! [Less]
