The Bourbon Orleans is wonderful in every way: beautiful, clean rooms; excellent customer service; friendly staff; 1/2 block from Bourbon Street (actually borders Bourbon on one side) and 1 block from the Cathedral; great swimming pool. We were greeted with a super... More

Stayed here in August as part of a group and had an excellent experience. The room was clean and spacious and the maid service excellent. I loved the pool which was a welcome retreat when experiencing August weather! The attached bar was a perfect meeting place for our group socials. The lobby was cool and welcoming. The breakfast buffet was... More
