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.

Great place

Not only is the Bourbon Orleans in the perfect location, but it is a great hotel. Beautiful lobby with either warm (hot cocoa or spiced cider) or cool (fruit infused water) on the entry table when you come back from walking around the Quarter. The rooms are all very comfortable and have free bottles of water for you, plus coffee/tea maker AND when you check in they give you a coupons for free beer/wine or drink of the day in their bar! You just can't beat it!

great location

small rooms, slow elevator and only 1 working The hotel is beautiful and one of best locations in New Orleans, only two and half blocks from Café du Monde, one block to Cathedral and Jackson Square, half a block to Bourbon or Royal Streets. Cabs lined up at front door so easy to get to Superdome for Saints game. Staff was good and helpful!!!!! Would stay there again but hopefully the other elevator would be repaired!

Perfect location and helpful staff!

Close to everything in French Quarter. Staff was very helpful...we got into our room early. Ice machine near the room was noisy...so I would try to stay at least a room away from those. Bar was superb with fresh squeezed juices and local beers.

Not for the sleep deprived

Bourbon Orleans is a gorgeous hotel and is rich in history. The lobby features antique furnishings to get you into anti-bellum state of mind. The rooms are very up to date, clean and beautiful. Since the building is quite old, the walls provide good soundproofing. BUT, the doors seemed paper thin. We could hear the drunken spats of our neighbors in the hallway like they were sitting right next to us. Our only window faced Bourbon street so getting to sleep was a bit tough, especially over the weekend. I recommend booking early and requesting a room that faces onto a different street or to the pool.

Cafe du Monde is great! BUT, expect to stand in a verrrrry long line to get to those delicious beignettes. We went there for desert at night: no lines and quick service. The muffulettas at Central Grocery are out of this world. I wish we had bought two.

Great Stay. Great staff to match.

Would go back in a minute. Wonderful & helpful staff. Room was a little small. No view. But all rooms cannot be a great view. Great location. Very clean.
