I wish I could give 4.5 because I really did love the Bourbon Orleans but I have one major complaint. First of all we booked this hotel very last min when we got to New Orleans and didn't love our other hotel. The good- the most amazing location between the beauty of the French Quarter and the party of Bourbon St. The people are so nice and helpful. We had a minor wait when we checked in because of our last min booking and were immediately given drink coupons. The pool is very nice with lots of shade or sun whichever you are looking for. The rooms are nice enough- they are a little outdated but clean and well appointed.
The only complaint I have is how loud the room was. We were in a two floor suite on the west side of the hotel and it was so loud we couldn't sleep. The walls to the hallway and the window to the street were so thin we could hear everything. We slept with two noise machines on to drowned out the noise but it was still crazy. We should have asked for a new room but we were only there for two days and didn't want to spend a bunch of time switching rooms. In hindsight that was a mistake because we were so tiered after two days without sleep. One time I looked outside to see what was so loud that is made the whole room shake and it was just a man rolling a suitcase past.
My recommendation would be to stay at this hotel for sure BUT make sure you don't have a super loud room.
