I wish we could throw a party at the InterContinental every year!
Our wedding was at the InterContinental on NYE 12/31/2019, and we are thrilled with our choice. The location was amazing -- close enough to walk to Bourbon Street but not TOO close to the rowdiness, as well as perfect distance from our church (Immaculate Conception) for our second line! And we were thrilled about the size and layout of the third floor: I didn't want our wedding to be cramped or for our guests to feel like they were on top of each other, and the size/layout of the InterContinental ballrooms was luxurious -- and I LOVE the high ceilings. (Even the bathrooms were spacious!)
Lastly, Lindsey Rinaudo was SUCH an enormous help to us over our wedding weekend. By the time the wedding rolled around, I was tired of making decisions, and Lindsey really stepped up to help with coordinating our decor and making sure everything ran smoothly. I'm not kidding when I say that I basically left all decisions about where to put decor (things like mini Christmas trees, masks, lanterns with fairy lights, round gold ornaments, garland, etc) in her hands, and she knocked it out of the park, even though I don't know if that was part of her job. Not only did she determine where to put things and then set them up for us, she even printed out signs for us (like "WELCOME TO THE PARTY" and "PROHIBITION ENDS HERE, PLEASE GRAB A DRINK" in art deco style to match the 2020 Roaring Twenties feel) and put together a card box because I forgot. There were of course minor hiccups along the way, but I think that's to be expected for any party of this size, and it was still an overall amazing time. She (and the staff, including the bridal attendants!) went above and beyond making sure that the day of was absolutely perfect for my husband and me. I wish all of my friends would get married at the InterContinental New Orleans or that we could throw anniversary parties there every NYE!Sent on 02/01/2020

Beautiful wedding reception at the Hotel Intercontinental
We had our daughter’s wedding reception at the Intercontinental on December 22nd, 2018. Every detail was attended to up to the date of the wedding by Isabella, and the reception was fabulous. The ambiance, the food, the servers, the bartenders all did an excellent job. The rooms were beautiful, and the bridal suite was large and very comfortable for the girls to get ready on the wedding day. Thank you for a memorable wedding reception!Sent on 01/06/2019

Perfect, simply perfect. The Intercontinental has a magnificent ballroom with floor to ceiling windows on the back wall. We have received multiple compliments. "Best reception I ever went to." Everything was first class: the food, the service. Isabella Finnell, catering sales manager, and our link to the hotel made the process easy from beginning to end. Every question was answered clearly in a timely and professional manner. The Presidential Suite is roomy, comfortable, and beautiful. We had 11 bridesmaids, hair stylist, make-up, and many drop-in guests. There was enough room for all. The Intercontinental met our every expectation and more.Sent on 09/04/2018
