Experience the best of both worlds. Enjoy all of the excitement of the French Quarter just steps away, and return to the luxe calm of the Westin New Orleans Canal Place. Our New Orleans hotel is perfectly situated along the Mississippi River. Walk across the street to Harrah’s Casino, refresh your wardrobe at the shops at Canal Place, or stroll to nearby Bourbon Street and the French Quarter. We are just steps to Jackson Square, the New Orleans Convention Center, museums, art galleries, dining and the central business district.

Our 437 modern, spacious guest rooms and suites provide breathtaking views of the Mississippi river, French Quarter, and downtown. Dine in one of our enticing New Orleans Restaurants, re-energize in our WestinWORKOUT® Fitness Studio, or celebrate your special occasion with a refreshing signature cocktail in the Green Bar.

We ask that conference participants book hotel accommodations at the Westin-Canal Place. A discounted rate has been negotiated for our conference and we can incur penalty if our room commitment is not met. Westin-Canal Place is also a very short walk to our banquet venue and has many spaces available for continued collaboration and socialization outside of formal conference events. Please identify yourself as a “New Directions” participant for the discounted conference rate. The discount is only available until June 4, 2018, so please book prior to this date. Reservations must be canceled 3 days prior to expected arrival or one night’s stay plus taxes will be charged to the card on file per the hotels cancelation policy.
