Bourbon Orleans Hotel
Ranked #8 of 166 Hotels in New Orleans
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 24, 2012

Just returned from my first stay at Bourbon Orleans (hopefully not my last!). Had a fantastic balcony room on the 5th floor--on Orleans St side but very close to Bourbon. Room was clean upon arrival and cleaned promptly each morning. Even though there were four people in the room, it was roomy enough. Perfectly located to experience the entire French Quarter. All of the staff was friendly and promptly took care of every request. The courtyard pool area is a quiet & peaceful place after a hard day of enjoying all that NOLA has to offer. You absolutely cannot beat this hotel for location and accommodations.

Room Tip: If you want to experience the French Quarter, get a balcony room. They are well worth the extra exp...

Had the pleasure of attending a meeting at the hotel which involved a three night stay. The staff are wonderfully friendly and helpful and the location cannot be beat! Incredible courtyard pool area that is an oasis amidst all the activity on the streets!

Room Tip: Try to get a 2 storey suite as watching the action from your balcony is fun!

The rooms were clean, the staff helpful and the privacy amazing. Located right in the heart of New Orleans, you can walk out and expereince everything New Orleans has to offer and then retreat to the hotel and litterally shut off the outside to enjoy the pool, relax in your room or the comfort of the spacious lobby to mingle with friends. The rates were very reasonable. The Staff very attentive, meeting any reasonable request we had. Next time, I am in New Orleans, this would be the first place I would look to stay!

Room Tip: Room selection depends upon the experience you want, Poolside for a break from the action and a quie...

Spent 5 nights in a room with a balcony facing Orleans Street, loved it! The noise from Bourbon Street added to the experience without being too noisy. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. There were a couple of problems with housekeeping staff (discovered that one bed did not have a top sheet when getting into bed the first night, no replenishment of cups and coffee the first day) but they were taken care of when we left a note. Ate in the hotel restaurant one night, food was delicious and relatively inexpensive. The bar was clean and complimentary drinks provided on check-in were great!! Also got discount from hotel on admission to Mardi Gras World. Location was fantastic, one block from Jackson Square and two blocks from the streetcar station. Great visit and I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone!!

Room Tip: Definitely get a balcony room on Bourbon or Orleans if you want the real taste of Bourbon Street!

I stayed at the Bourbon Orleans hotel for a business meeting and really enjoyed the stay! It is in the heart of the French Quarter (only 2 blocks from Cafe DuMonde!) and was such a lovely respite from the action outside. The rooms are clean and very nice - including the walk-in shower. The entire staff at the hotel were so friendly and helpful - and made me feel very welcomed. The rooms either face the lovely inner area where the pool is at the 1st level or the outer French Quarter. I tried hors d'oeuvres from the restaurant - and they were fabulous! Our meetings included breakfast and lunch - which were also wonderful. It is a great place if you want to be in the heart of the activity!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the inner courtyard are quieter than the rooms facing the streets - where all the activ...

This is my favorite hotel to stay in when coming to New Orleans. Did not like that they decided to tear the entire carpet out of the 6th floor at 7 in the morning. I got no sleep due to the hammering right outside our door and nearly pierced my foot with all the loose nails. Put a damper on our last day!!
