“Fantastic Hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

Walking distance to everywhere! Bourbon Street, Preservation Hall, Jackson Square & tonnes of great restaurants. Beautiful rooms, clean and quiet. Pool was a nice treat after a long day of site seeing. Staff were polite and extremely helpful with suggestions. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Face the courtyard.

The Bourbon Orleans is a beautiful hotel located in the heart of French Quarter, just steps away from historical sites, Bourbon Street drinking, fine dining, and shopping. Clean room and hotel with great staff. Dined at the Roux restaurant in hotel and had a nice meal. Monique, in reservations, gave us a terrific room overlooking the courtyard and pool. Bill, the bar tender at the Bourbon gave us some great advice for shopping & dining. Big shout out to Chris, the hotel manager, who made my wife's birthday a most memorable occasion! Would highly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: We had a courtside room overlooking pool which was quiet for sleeping.

Beautiful hotel- perfect location - friendly staff. Only complain I can have is that the pillows were overstuffed- bed was great though. We would definitely tell friends and family to stay here and we will stay here again. Great location.

Room Tip: We were on the second floor- room 239- street noise was really not a problem although I could hear t...

First of all, the location couldn't be better. The valet and door staff are excellent. The front desk staff were likewise very good. They helped in the selection of one of the swamp tours and the selection was perfect.

You are right in the center of the French Quarter and shopping as well as Bourbon Street are just out the door.

The room we had was well appointed. If there is any problem it is with getting the room properly cleaned and the bed sheets properly fitted to the bed.

There is free internet which is always appreciated.

We did not eat at the restaurant so I can have no comment on that aspect of the hotel

When we come to New Orleans again, I would not hesitate to stay here again

The Bourbon Orleans is a fantastic hotel. The location is perfect. When we arrived we were greeted by Louis the bell hop manager. He was great. Gave us great suggestions for places to go and eat. The front desk was personable, we arrived early and was able to store our luggage and they called us when our room was ready. The rooms are gorgeous. We were upgraded to a loft ( no balcony) and it was perfect! The walls are thin so you will hear people in the hallway but that did not bother us or take away from our experience. Again, a great place to stay in the French Quarter!

We just returned from 10 days in New Orleans for Mardi Gras 2013. I can not say enough about the Bourbon Orleans. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. We required a room move, at the hotels request due to a leak in our bathroom, and they were more than apologetic and helpful in getting us relocated quickly and with little disruption to our vacation. The location is prime for any French Quarter experience, one block off Bourbon, one block off Royal and just behind the cathedral. Its a very easy walk to Canal Street for the parades.The rooms facing the pool were amazingly quiet with all of the chaos of Bourbon Street just steps away. The security for the weekend before Mardi Gras until Fat Tuesday was superior, wrist bands were issued and checked upon every return to the hotel. Our first room, a queen, was small, but fine for two of us, with a balcony facing the pool and very quiet considering the ballroom and service for the Bourbon Street private rental balcony rooms was being done up and down our hall. Our second room, a king, was very large and spacious. Without a doubt, we would only stay at the Bourbon Orleans when visiting the city.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pool were quiet. Queens were small but fine for two. Kings were very large.
