A Luxurious Mardi Gras Hotel
Stay Front Row and Center
When seeking Mardi Gras hotels, consider Astor Crowne Plaza New Orleans, perfectly located where Canal Street meets Bourbon Street in the heart of the French Quarter. Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday, is the final day of Carnival and takes places on the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday. It is a day of feasting, music, parades and celebration. The hotel’s location puts you right on the parade route.
Part of the tradition is wearing purple, green, and gold adorned with long beads caught from beautiful floats or other vibrant costumes. During Mardi Gras, most businesses and roads are shut down while the streets come alive with full-force celebrating. Plan your Mardi Gras vacation with Astor Crowne Plaza New Orleans and stay front row and center to all the action.
