“Excellent Hotel With Ideal Location and Good Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

Stayed here at a relatives suggestion for a business trip vs. staying in the hotel cluster near the convention center. It was a good choice. The hotel is 1/2 block from Bourbon Street and from Jackson Square. Noise from Bourbon Street was not a problem. Room was clean and bathroom was large and well maintained. Courtyard with pool was not used but looked great. A travelling companion said the gym faciliities were excellent. I would definitely return here again. Breakfast consists of buffet on certain days or order from menu. We did not try dinner but I have heard it was good. There were too many restaurants in the area.

Room Tip: Odd numbers face Orleans Street. There is some light filtering in. All appear to be nice.

My husband and I go to New Orleans several times a year, and we always stay here. The price is excellent for the quality of rooms and the location. It is a beautiful old hotel, with a lot of history--even a few ghosts ;). I highly recommend the Bourbon Orleans!

My wife and I celebrated our 40th anniversary in New Orleans. Our stay at Bourbon Orleans was wonderful. Located in the heart of the "Quarter" we were within walking distance of all the great restaurants and attractions of the French Quarter.

Stayed in an interior room facing the inner courtyard and pool. This was awesome. No street noise from the everlasting party outside. The hotel is easy walking distance to great places to eat, shop, see, and anything we could think to do in the french quarter. We would defintely stay again.

This was our second stay at Bourbon Orleans. It is a great hotel in a great location. This will be our hotel of choice on all of our New Orleans visits. The $42 a night valet seems alot but parking at any of the hotels will cost you. Also, must recommend Madina's food was wonderful

We had other friends who had previously stayed at the Bourbon Orleans, and raved about their experience. As it turns out, they were absolutely right. The Bourbon Orleans is a great boutique hotel perfectly located a block away from Bourbon Street. The Services and amenities were excellent. I cannot commend enough how friendly and accommodating the entire staff is. Everyone made you feel very welcome. The location is a convenient walk to everywhere -- the French Market, Cafe du Monde, the Jazz River Boats and even Harrahs (a bit of a walk, but doable), and of course all the great restaurants in the area. We'll be back!

Room Tip: We had an inside room facing the church and courtyard. It was good to get away from the noise and h...

This was meant to be a romantic and fun birthday weekend for my wife and I and we were given a room facing the pool for a bit more quiet and calming atmosphere but what proved to be the case was the two connecting rooms across the hall contained a bachelorette weekend group that felt it was appropriate to "party" in the hall outside our room and theirs instead of inside from 2:30am until 5:30am Friday and Saturday and Sunday. After calls to security each night plus my wife opening the door to try and give them an idea that they should go inside or back down to the bars we finally had some peace only to have it repeated the next night. Given that we were not the only guests on the hall this weekend and that we had complained numerous times our expectations for a hotel of this caliber and price would be that they monitor situations like this and do all they can to keep ALL guests comfortable, relaxed and rested. This ended up being a very expensive sleep deprived weekend without the rest and relaxation we desired.
