THE  ASTOR CROWNE PLAZA TAKES THE NUMBER ONE SPOT IN THE CROWNE PLAZA COLLECTION ONCE AGAIN
New Orleans hotel continues to receive industry accolades

NEW ORLEANS, LA, October 20, 2011 - Meeting Planners across the country recently ranked The Astor Crowne Plaza Hotel 1st out of over 150 Crowne Plaza hotels in a recent survey conducted by Intercontinental Hotels Group this year.   

In surveys completed by the hotel's meeting planners, the Astor Crowne Plaza received exemplary scores for outstanding service for meeting excellence.

"We continue to strive to exceed our clients' expectations and our efforts are reflected in their reviews.  Anticipating the meeting planner's needs is what sets us apart," said Don Zimmer, Director of Marketing.  "We believe the success of our meetings staff is due to their passion to live the Crowne Plaza brand standards which emphasize "excellence in service".  At the Astor, all of our convention professionals are CMP certified which becomes a great asset for planners in their day-to-day planning process with the hotel."

According to recent meeting organizer, Colonel Terence W. Singleton, United States Army, 80th Training Command (TASS)

"Rest assured The Astor will receive the highest remarks possible for the outstanding support and customer service that we received during our conference. The outstanding staff of the Astor Crowne Plaza, coupled with their ‘can do' spirit/attitude, made our experience most enjoyable and added to the success of our workshop. Again, we are truly grateful." -


There are many reasons the Astor Crowne Plaza is "The Place To Meet" in New Orleans. In addition to many services geared specifically to the Meeting Planners needs such as the 2-Hour Response Guarantee, and the assignment of a Crowne Meetings Director, The Daily Debrief, a meetings hallmark of Crowne Plaza, allows the planner to review the current day with the hotel's meeting professionals and prepare for the next. This daily meeting is also a valuable budgeting tool for the planner.  The ranking by Meeting Planners is due in part to the recent completion of the Astor's extensive $11 million renovation which won the Top IHG Award for Best in Renovation, and the team's efforts to exemplify true "Southern Hospitality."

The Astor Crowne Plaza is part of the collection of InterContinental Hotels Group PLC and managed by Hospitality Management Corporation.
