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.

Perfect trip for two!

This hotel is fabulous! It has all the charm that is New Orleans. The rooms are adorable, the beds are extremely comfortable, the tv is huge and the bathroom is superb. The rooms are pretty small, basically just a bed and a little walking space, but perfect for those not looking to spend their entire vacation in a hotel room. The location could not get better. You are right where all the action is withouth the noise. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the continental breakfast is great, I highly recommend it. I will recommend this hotel to friends and will for sure stay again if I'm ever back in New Orleans.

Completely Satisfactory

It was Mardis Gras, so one can expect a little chaos, but the hotel provided everything they promised at a reasonable price for a last minute reservation.

Great location

Beautiful hotel; great location. Staff was friendly, helpful, professional. Breakfast was outstanding. Free welcome drink was greatly appreciated. Only complaint might be - we stayed during Mardi Gras and guests were noisy at very late (or early) hours.

WWII museum shouldn't be missed. And, a great musical performance by the National Park Service at the Old Mint was truly awesome.

Enjoyable vacation spot in an unique city

Hotel is in the heart of French Quarter in NO and conveniently located for enjoying the city, food site seeing. The only problem was that the hotel initially refused to honor the inclusion of breakfast in the paid room rate. We had to fight for it and they approved after contacting the travel agency. We had to show the proof that travel agency had given us that deal with inclusion of breakfast. Restaurant staff was very courteous and food quality was very good. They tried to give us the room right near the service elevator which we refused. The construction was supposed to be over but was still going on.

Andrea's was an excellent restaurant for Italian food. Service, food and management was unequaled. It was probably the best restaurant in NO area. They provided limo service from and to the hotel. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Almost a homerun!

The hotel was under construction on some floors and it caused a large amount of noise. They moved us to another room, but it was on the floor right under the noise.

A gem in the rough

The Bourbon Orleans is a fantastic value right in the heart of the French Quarter. Usually when someone says "value" many people think "cheap, low-quality" but in this case you get a lot of hotel for your money. The rooms are spacious, modern, and clean. The staff are friendly and very helpful, and the price is very reasonable. I arrived late-morning hoping to check in but there were no rooms ready. The desk agent, seeing that I was about to fall asleep on their lobby couch, had housekeeping quickly prepare a room. I was in by noon. Plus the hotel is located in the heart of the French Quarter so any time of day the center of activity is a few blocks from your room. Highly recommend this place.

Convenient, comfortable hotel with fantastic staff.

It was our first trip to NOLA and the Bourbon Orleans was a great choice. It's a prime location nestled between Jackson Square and Bourbon St. Close to the trolley we were able to get around town easily and see the sites outside the French Quarter too. (Although we ended up cabbing it on the way back). The room was nice and very comfortable. It's an old building but the amenities didn't suffer. They weren't outstanding but way better than expected given it's age. We were on the top floor and the one wall was at a slight angle giving the room character and charm. But it also gave me a bump on the head getting out of bed in the morning. The staff were awesome. Consistently very friendly and helpful. They definitely bumped up my rating an extra star. We did travel with another couple who were originally on the first floor and had issues with cock roaches. But we never saw one in our sixth floor room. Then again, that's not an issue with the Bourbon, but with NOLA in general being so close to the water. The pool and outside courtyard was a nice break in the evenings from the madness that is Bourbon street. We'd grab a drink from one of the many bars down the block and enjoy it poolside. There are rumors of it being "haunted" but. like the cock roaches, we never saw any ghosts. Overall a convenient, comfortable hotel with exceptional staff.

The most popular attraction is Bourbon Street (which is a spectacle you can't miss). But don't skip the great shops on and around Royal St towards Jackson Square.
