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.

Love the Bourbon Orleans

The staff is incredibly friendly - from questions we had before arrival to the housekeeping staff we saw every morning. The hotel is beautiful in a perfect location and with a great pool for sunny days. We are repeat customers now and plan to return again next year.

Bourbon orleans

The hotel is classic New Orleans. It's everything go you would expect in a hotel so close to bourbon street! The room are clean and nice, bed is not as soft as I would like but that's me. The bar staff was not as friendly as the location it is in could improve on that area but besides that very good overall.

Ok, we stayed, and we left

Greeting always great; but underlying problems in resolving problems: room keys did not work had to got to the desk over three times to get keys to work; heat was not in the room till Saturday after 7:00 AM when boiler was reset and took hour to get blanket to the room. Everyone was friendly but not too helpful. We went to the Bayou Classic events and had a great time and the room time was minimal. Last year we had much better acomondations. Great diretions to all places and great sugestions for meals.

It's OK

This was our second trip to New Orleans and the first time we stayed in the French Quarter. If your intentions are to spend most of your time in and around this area then the Bourbon Orleans should be adequate. We spent very little time at the hotel other than to sleep and so it fit our needs. Their restaurant was not open very often and we ate breakfast there only once in the seven days at the hotel. The hotel is located off Bourbon St. which at night is party central for the French Quarter. So if you are older like we are bring earplugs. We were on the sixth floor and could only hear the thumping base from the music off the street. It really wasn't that bad. If you like to party then the location of this hotel should fit the bill. The staff were both friendly and helpful. The only complaint we had was the dirty looking carpets. They really need a good scrubbing or need to be replaced completely. The hotel has a nice large outdoor pool in their central courtyard. If you have children they will really enjoy it.

good

We were given, without asking a duplex. The bedroom and bathroom were on the 2nd floor but no half bath on the first floor where the living room was. There was also no chair in the bedroom. Otherwise, the stay was enjoyable.

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!
