Authentic New Orleans luxury meets you at the InterContinental New Orleans — where impeccable, Four-Diamond accommodations and service are matched only by the perfect location. This is the place to immerse yourself in Big Easy culture, just steps away from the historic French Quarter and the riverfront. Business and leisure travelers alike soak in the subtle quiet of our hotel while remaining close to the exciting pace of the city. The richly-appointed, newly renovated guestrooms and hotel spaces envelop your senses, while the exquisite rooftop pool with stunning city views and the fine make your New Orleans and conference experience complete. As with previous years, hotel reservations and availability are on a first-come, first-serve basis as the room block is limited. Once the room block is gone, it’s gone and regular room rates apply.
The discounted room rate for this Four-Diamond is $234 + tax/night; online reservation instructions are below. Please be advised that last year’s room inventory went quickly & the hotel sold out completely well in advance of the event. The room block with this rate expires on February 1, 2018 at which time regular room rates will apply. Hotel requires one night’s deposit with each reservation and cancellations must be made 72 hours in advance.
