The Bourbon Orleans Hotel has many stories to tell, sitting on the site of both the grand old Orleans Theater and Ballroom, and a former convent. Restored in the 1960s in the Creole style of the French Quarter, the Bourbon's rooms are all unique. From the gilded hangings of the ballroom and meeting halls to the Provencal furnishings of the Governor's Suite, the grandeur of Old Louisiana is everywhere guests look. A complimentary welcome beverage at the Bourbon O is your initial dose of New Orleans hospitality, while resident Creole restaurant, Roux, serves up jumbo shrimp and fried green tomatoes. The saltwater pool forms a calm oasis in the courtyard, a quiet counterpoint to the Bourbon Street bustle outside the front door.

Neighborhood
Right on Bourbon Street, the Bourbon Orleans boasts quick access to the attractions of the French Quarter, as well as some of the finest music found in the "Birthplace of Jazz". Head down Orleans Street for the pedestrian-only section of Royal Street and its lively outdoor performers, or take a detour down Pirate Alley, which runs along the west side of St. Louis Cathedral and ends at Jackson Square, a U.S. National Historic Landmark. You're also never far from the banks of the Mississippi and its vintage steamboat tours.
Hints and tips
Balcony suites overlook Bourbon Street, St. Ann or Orleans Street, and the grand St. Louis Cathedral, so book here for a unique vantage point.

Those with a taste for the supernatural should keep their eyes peeled for the Bourbon's three 'resident' ghosts, including a confederate soldier patrolling the sixth and third floors and a spectral figure waltzing beneath the ballroom chandeliers.

We had a great time, great location!

Perfect location to make your way to the historic district , walk the river or hop a streetcar to the Garden District, even to attend mass at St. Louis Cathedral. Spectacular! Bourbon St is around the corner, so if that's what you are looking for it is there, if not, turn left.

Weekend Away

The hotel was great and in a perfect location. Close to everything in the French Quarter, but not too loud or crazy. Rooms weren't huge, but they were nice and comfortable. Staff was friendly; bar was great. I would definitely stay there again!

Perfect location for family getaway

Fantastic location in the heart of the French Quarter, yet far enough away from the Bourbon Street craziness . Staff was wonderful. Room size is average, but we were fine staying there as a family of four. Hotel was beautifully decorated for the holidays. Would defiitely stay again.

Wonderfull experience

everything I expected form a hotel of this quality except for the parking ( I do understand the difficulties tho seeing as the Quarter was not built with the automobile in mind). The breakfast in the hotel was a great suprise. It actually was a better value to have breakfast there than go outside the hotel a find a place.

Great hotel in perfect location

I was so pleasantly surprised by how great this hotel was. It was in the perfect location. 1/2 a block to Bourbon Streer but away from all the craziness. It was quite, the room was big, and the bathroom was great too. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Everything we wanted to do was within walking distance. Just loved it!!!

Great stay

Bourbon Orleans is a perfect hotel if you are looking to be close to Bourbon. The staff is incredibly friendly and it's right off Bourbon. The only downfall is that it takes a bit to retrieve your car from valet, but this is because there is not parking close to the hotel.
