Mardi RAW attendees and sponsors – I cannot thank you enough for your patience regarding the hotel situation. With the holidays and Mardi Gras it has been more than a challenge to get a second room block set up. Below are a few hotels within walking distance of the Astor Crowne Plaza that we recommend as alternatives.

 

Again, thank you for your patience, please do not hesitate to contact Dee Murphy if you have any questions.

The conference hotel is located 15 miles from Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. NO airport is a hub for Southwest Airlines and flights are pretty reasonable.  Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport (88 miles) and Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport (77 miles) are also options but can be slightly pricier.
