The location is perfect, staff was friendly and helpful, and the room quality was amazing! Worth the splurge if you're looking for a nice time in downtown New Orleans. The shower was huge and open, which was interesting and different.

We get to NOLA a few times a year and have stayed in lots of different places. The Bourbon Orleans was one of the better places. It's right off bourbon street but quiet. The staff were very friendly and the hotel was clean. Only down side was it appears to be the spot for wedding receptions and our room was near the ballroom. Lots of clanging and talking during the cleanup late at night then again early the next morning for Santa brunch. All in all, we'd stay here again.

We stayed at the Bourbon Orleans for 3 nights and we absolutely loved it! Perfect location, very clean and they had an awesome front desk/doormen! The only reason I didn't give the hotel an "excellent" rating was because of the shower. The shower area is pretty open and the water just got all over the bathroom. Weird quirk, I know.

I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: The traditional queen room is kind of small, perfect for 2 people.

Perfect location. Courteous staff. Very clean. Surprised rooms didn't have refrigerators or microwaves. Bed was not comfortable to me, but I'm picky. And I think my room was on a side where there was early morning trash pickup. But I don't really feel I can book a room that deep in the Quarter and complain about a little noise. Overall, a very pleasant stay.

If you want to be in the middle of all activity in the French Quarter, this is the place to stay! You will be within walking distance of all of the important, don't miss attractions and have plenty of help from the staff getting you to other areas of interest as well. The bell staff is outstanding, friendly, fun and helpful. Unfortunately, the breakfast buffet is slightly overpriced and the Eggs Benedict toast was hard and inedible. I will say that the table service is impeccable though and we might give it another chance. Be sure to ask for courtyard room unless you want to sleep with earplugs but if you want to see Bourbon Street in full swing, go for the balcony room! Everyone should try it once and we did!!

Room Tip: Courtyard rooms are quieter I understand. Go for the balcony for a party time.

This is an exceptional hotel in an exceptional location, and an exceptional value. Large, comfortable rooms, well maintained, and architecturally authentic to the New Orleans heritage. Located in the center of the French Quarter, ALL points of interest in the Quarter are within walking distance. Now, our hotel of choice when vacationing in The Big Easy.

This was my first stay at this hotel and I was pleasantly surprised after reading some reviews here. I was certain to ask for a "quiet" room, facing the courtyyart, and that really worked. I arrived on Thanksgiving Day for three nights and was very happy with this hotel. The staff and service was OUTSTANDING. I also enjoyed the room, the bed was very comfortable. I travel extensively for business, and this is the best service and sleep quality. The bed and the room was comfortable, but the bathroom was dark, and just a walk in shower. This is an older property and old fixtures, but has been refreshened recently. I really enjoyed being able to stay in the heart of the quarter, and then enjoying a nice, quiet room to retire. I will be back!

Room Tip: Quiet rooms are on a high floor, facing the courtyard.
