“Beautiful Historic Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012 via mobile

The Bourbon Orleans is In perfect location for anything French Quarter! The Rooms were much larger than other rooms I've stayed in, in the Quarter. Hotel Staff was above and beyond helpful. Everything was neat and clean. The rooms were very quite despite location.

This is the place to stay in the French Quarter. The location is perfect. You can walk to everything in the area.
The hoteli s beautiful. The staff is courteous, helpful and friendly. The air conditioning in the hotel is great and believe me in August you need it!
The rooms are nice and clean.They have been updated very nicely. I do wish there was a little refrigerator in the room to keep some drinks cold or for left over food.
We are planning on return to New Orleans and this is the ONLY place we will stay.

When you are in NOLA there are MANY hotels to choose from. We went with this one because of location in the french quarter and the special they were running... "summer in the city" With this special we got free parking, bottled water in the room (it's very hot in August and the water was a nice treat) and 2 vouchers for breakfast at the hotel. A lot of the older hotel lack good A/C, our room was chilly, it was nice that we could cool off so fast! When I booked I requested a king bed with a view of the pool, unfortunately we got a queen bed with a view of the neighbor's roof. :( The room was small, but that didn't really bother us. The pool looked very inviting and the lighting was fun with all the white lights. We took the haunted tour that featured the ballroom where the quadroon balls were held in the hotel, very cool! The staff was fantastic, so helpful! The breakfast didn't go so well, but they really turned it around. I think they were understaffed that morning, there was only one server for the whole restaurant. The manager came in to help out, and the rest of the kitchen crew really pulled together to help out with the front of the house. It's nice to see that, so many places there are people who have the attitude, "its' not my job", but I felt they have a unity at this hotel. I had the creme bruelle french toast, it was super yummy. It was very sweet, it almost didn't need any syrup! My hubby ordered the special omelet and was very happy with his selection. The valet parking was quick and friendly.

Went to New Orleans in early August 2012 which is a slow time there due to the heat. The hotel was fantastic. The staff was great, the location could not have been better. It was 2 blocks to anything we wanted so walking was easy. The room was very nice and large by New Orleans standards. Great bathroom with walk in shower. Decor of the room was very nice and it was quiet. We were facing the courtyard and it was a quiet time in New Orleans so it might be louder at other times. Did not eat at the restaurant so can't comment there. The only complaint I would have is that the wireless internet did not work for Apple computers or anything else apple. The staff said it is a constant problem with apple machines, so since they know this, why not fix it? In conclusion, we will absolutely stay at this hotel again, the best we have stayed at in New Orleans. Fantastic staff, so friendly and helpful without exception.

Room Tip: Inside room is quiet. Ask for near the elevator.

Booked this hotel after having an awful 2 nights elsewhere in New Orleans. Service was exceptional, staff were more than happy to help with all of your needs, and the room was gorgeous. We chose a room overlooking Bourbon street and can't say that the noise was bad at all...we didn't even notice it. The bathroom was luxurious and spotless and the coffe machine was much appreciate. Location is fantastic, walking distance to everything in the French quarter and close to the trolley line. Would recommend to anyone.

Room Tip: A room overlooking Bourbon street is great to get the feel of the French Quarter

This was the first NOLA experience for my husband,daughter and I. We had the luxury of 2 rooms, one loft with a balcony facing St Ann and the other interior courtyard overlooking the pool.
Overall, a good stay right in the heart of the French Quarter. Couldn't have asked for a closer experience to Bourbon St. without being right on it.
The negatives however were the noise both outside and inside the hotel on the weekend.
The hallways are marble floored so EVERY sound is magnified. The doors are also very heavy so everyone slams going in and out which at 4 AM is aggravating. We were on the 3rd floor which could benefit from carpeting the hallways.
If you are looking for restful sleep this isn't recommended.
Also, no mini refrigs which you would think each room would have.
I would consider returning if the sound proofing could be improved. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
The Bourbon Orleans definitely delivers on the old French Quarter feel!
