“Simply Lovely!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

This quaint hotel located in the French Quarter is simply lovely. Although there are areas that are being repaired and/or updated (which the signage clearly states), the staff goes out of their way to ensure the comfort of the patrons. General Manager Paul Collins is a charming man. He endeared himself to us from the moment we entered the building, giving us the highlights of the chateau as well as the area. His recommendations were "spot on"! There was never a time when we asked a question or sought assistance that he was unwilling to help or that his advice was "off". We had no difficulties with the maid service. Nor was the fact that the whirlpool tub in our unit was out-of-order a problem for us.The kitchenette in the unit was more than adequate for our needs. The living room sofa and love seat were quite comfortable, as was the queen size bed, even though our bed at home is a king! Loved the fact that there were more than enough electric outlets to handle the electronics we traveled with. This was a timeshare exchange and I would recommend it as a great place to stay. Great restaurants, shopping and public transportation are all within walking distance. Our suite was on the "street side" of the building and the noise level was not disturbing. (We're New Yorkers so it wasn't noisy to us at all!) The pool and courtyard were well-used every day with coffee available there every morning and danish and Bloody Mary's added to the offerings on the weekends. We would have no difficulty whatsoever returning here on our next visit and strongly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a nice place to stay in the French Quarter.

Room Tip: The "A" building does not have an elevator so if you prefer not to carry bags up stairs, r...

This was the worst timeshare we have ever stayed at. In need of serious updating. Uncomfortable queen bed. Dead bugs under sink. Stove dirty. Whirlpool tub didn't work and was so slippery for taking a shower. Needed rubber mat. Sofa cushions so soft, it hurt your back to sit on it. Inadequate maid service. Came to empty garbage, left bag in room. It was in a great location. I will give it that. Very noisy on street units. Interval International needs to rethink carrying this place.

Chateau Orleans was an awesome place to stay. It is close enough to the activity of the French Quarter yet a very quiet location. Our room was remodeled and spacious. The Courtyard was beautiful and serene. The staff was helpful and we are planning to stay there again on our next visit.

Room Tip: Our room faced the courtyard on the 3rd floor. Very quiet. Not sure if all of the rooms have been re...

Chateau Orleans is a wonderful place to stay in the center of activity surrounding the French Quarter. We were there for a wedding/reception that was held at the Ritz Carlton, the Chateau was one of the three hotels recommended by bride's father who lives in the New Orleans area. It is by far the best value in hotels located in this area of New Orleans. The streets surrounding the Chateu are loud most of the night, but that is to be expected in the location so near to the French quarter. The staff, especially Paul at the dresk, was exceptional. Hotel is completing a renovation of rooms. My unit, #15 had not been renovated and I had the take off points because of this for the room rating. If you are afraid of heights, do not ask for a unit with a loft bedroom, navigating an eight foot ladder in't for everyone. There is no restaurant, but is located near some very good ones especially Deanies on Iberville (3/4 of block away). Complimentary Bloody Maries and pastries on weekend mornings at a beautiful pool/courtyard area. There is NO PARKING, but located near an excellent parking garage across from Deanies (3/4 block away). The garage is the most reasonably priced one in the area(Premium Parking on Iberville). I would definitely stay at the Chateau again, I can't emphasize the dollar value enough!

Room Tip: Ask for a recently remodeled Studio or Townhouse unit. Townhouses are quieter, located in innder co...

I've been coming to the Chateau Orleans for 33 years. Great, great location in the French Quarter -- two blocks from Bourbon and two blocks from Canal. Swimming pool, living room, kitchenette, and laundry facilities. Very inexpensive compared to nearby properties. New owners have extensively remodeled and renovated. Put in an elevator in one building and are planning to add one to the second building. Rooms and public areas have been refurbished and extensive re-landscaping has been done. Paul Collins, Manager, and Staff are always helpful and will spend time giving advice to first-time N.O. visitors.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the courtyard and one in the building with an elevator if you have trouble wit...

So, my friends and I started at another property owned by this company and were moved here after a giant ceiling leak was discovered. It was an upgrade from the previous property but that's not saying much. It was cleaner but that doesn't mean clean. Dated, dated, dated. The lady who "works" the front desk is one of the least helpful people working in the hotel industry. Nothing is her concern and nothing is her problem. She simply can't be bothered. The gentleman that works the front desk however is a gem and the ONLY reason I gave this dump a second star. The company that owns both properties should seriously rethink their game plan because the condition of their hotels and the people they choose to staff are WRONG!

My husband and I have been staying at the Chateau for many many years. In fact we come serveral times a year and stay here without hesitation. The courtyard is like a little oasis in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the quarter. The manager Paul is so helpful and we look forward to seeing him everytime we stay. In fact, if we dont arrive on time...he takes the time to call us and make sure everything is going OK. We have stayed in many of the rooms and its wonderful to stay in a room with so much to offer in the French Quarter. WHere else for the price can you get a living room and kitchenette. I look forward to staying here year after year and many years to come.

Room Tip: Lots of room when you get a one bedroom!
