The Astor Crowne Plaza Is Honored With ConventionSouth's Prestigious Annual Readers' Choice Award

New Orleans, LA (Nov. 9, 2012)-The publishers and editors of ConventionSouth, the national multimedia resource for planning events in the South, has presented The Astor Crowne Plaza with a 2012 Readers' Choice Award.

"ConventionSouth readers nominated and voted to decide the best meeting sites in the South, and it is no surprise to us that The Astor Crowne Plaza has been selected to receive our annual Readers' Choice Award," said ConventionSouth Publisher J. Talty O'Connor. "The value in receiving this prestigious recognition is that it comes from the United States' top meeting professionals who book events held in the South. These planners demand the highest level of customer service and quality facilities, and they have contributed in determining that The Astor Crowne Plaza indeed displays the commitment to professionalism, creativity and service that they require."

"The Astor Crowne Plaza team is very pleased to receive this award, especially because it is given by our clients who, with this honor, validate our exceptional hospitality and personal, caring service to ensure that their group experiences a flawless meeting from beginning to end," said Peter Ambros, General Manager of the hotel.

The Astor Crowne Plaza is among 100 convention and visitor bureaus (CVBs), meeting facilities and hotels located across the South to receive this year's Readers' Choice Award. Throughout the year, meeting professionals nominated the meeting sites they believe provide exemplary service for group events. The nominated properties were then compiled onto an online ballot where meeting professionals were asked to vote for the best of the best.

More than 1,500 voters participated this year in the selection process. This is the first year that The Astor Crowne Plaza has received this award, making it an even greater honor for the hotel to receive a 2012 Readers' Choice Award.

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.
