Our stay at this hotel greatly enhanced my first trip to New Orleans. We read Trip Advisor reviews and when booking, we requested a room on a top floor overlooking the courtyard where it would be quiet to sleep. It was! We choose not to get a car and the location of the Bourbon Orleans was wonderful. We were able to walk everywhere......When we first checked in to the lobby filled with fresh flowers and comfortable furniture,we visited the concierge, Ron, who was a wealth of knowledge and gave us fabulous information. He listened to our desires and recommended a City Tour, which picked up and dropped off at the hotel, and made reservations at many of the top restaurants... we were set for our mini vacation.
We found the room and bedding to be comfortable. The staff was excellent from the receptionist, Gio, at the front desk... to Rosetta,housekeeping manager who lent me scissors for a quick trim of my bangs. We ate and enjoyed an excellent brunch, with fresh cooked eggs and enhanced by the services of our waiter, Mark. We appreciated the courtesy coffee, citrus filled water and ice tea offered throughout the day.
The pool area was peaceful. We tried the bar, on Bourbon St. and it was our one disappointment, the service was good but the bar lacked the character and charm of the rest of the hotel. It was filled to the brim with smokers and we made a quick exit. In talking to the manager, we think they have plans to "redo" the bar, we hope so.
We will recommend this hotel to our friends.
