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.

Bourbon St. Wonder

Great experience; don't know what else I can say. Located right in the midst of Bourbon St. More of an adult environment.

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 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!!!

Right in the Heart of New Orleans

Great hotel right in the heart of the French quarter-one block from Bourbon Street and about 1 1/2 blocks from Jackson square. Close to great restaurants and a short walk to Frenchmen's street and the French market. Beds were comfy. We had a beautiful view of the pool from our room. When we didn't want to wait for a table at Cafe DuMonde we took back our bienets and ate them on the patio next to the pool. Very quiet even at night. Newly remodeled. Would definitely stay there again.

Perfect location!

This hotel was in the BEST location. A block from Jackson Square and a block from Bourbon Street. The staff was very nice and gave great restaurant recommendations (try the Wine bar across the street). The only time we could hear any noise from Bourbon Street was Saturday night but other than that it was perfect. I will stay here every time I return to New Orleans!

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.

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.

GREAT Hotel!

Perfect location for the French Quarter and our room was NOT facing Bourbon street so we were able to sleep perfectly! Staff was excellent and the beds were so comfortable! Highly recommend!
