About the Hotel
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 rooftop pool with stunning city views and the fine cuisine at Trenasse Restaurant make your New Orleans experience complete.
Each delegate is responsible for making his or her own hotel reservation. The cost of the hotel room is not included in the registration fee. Any guestroom changes, cancellations, etc., are the delegate’s responsibility and must be made directly with the hotel according to the guidelines below in order to avoid financial penalty. A room block is being held at Intercontinental New Orleans for AACSB Summit participants. Preferred room rate is 169 USD per night, single or double occupancy, plus tax. The current taxes are 15.20% plus 2 USD occupancy tax per room per night. The room rate includes complimentary in-room wireless internet access. When making reservations, please ask for the AACSB room block to receive the preferred room rate. The Intercontinental New Orleans must be contacted no later than October 22, 2019 to receive the group discount room rate. Sleeping rooms are based on availability and may sell out prior to the cut-off date.
When making arrangements through travel websites or an agent, the negotiated AACSB rates may not always be available. Please request your travel agent to book your room in the AACSB-negotiated room block for the event.
We have been made aware that third-party companies, Exhibitor Housing Services (EHS), Global Expo Travel, Exhibitor Travel Bureau, and Business Travel Management, are contacting our attendees, introducing themselves as the official ‘housing bureau’ for the event. This is not the case. EHS, Global Expo Travel, Exhibitor Travel Bureau, and Business Travel Management are not affiliated in any way with AACSB or with the Intercontinental New Orleans. If you booked through these companies, we believe that your information may be compromised and we would strongly recommend that you do not give any personal information, including credit card details to EHS, Business Travel Management, Global Expo Travel, Exhibitor Travel Bureau, or any other unknown vendor. If you receive an e-mail from these companies, please forward to it to [email protected].
