“Perfect New Orleans Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2014

Bourbon Orleans hotel is grand and gorgious. Staff was friendly and professional. Awesome breakfast buffet. Best location in New Orleans. Bourbon St. to the right, St. Louis Cathedral to the left. Hotel bar ambience is perfect and staff so welcoming. Would love to make this a anual stay.

The bourbon orleans hosted our wedding and it could not have gone any better! The service was top notch, the wedding planner, megan was simply amazing and the hotel it self was gorgeous! Everyone was very helpful in anything we could have needed. Our rehearsal dinner as well as ceremony and reception were all held here and everyone from the cleaning crew to the bartenders were just so friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: We had a St. Anne Suite and it was perfect! The view from the balcony was great.. we were close to...

Our room faced the courtyard. I was here joining my husband for the weekend before his work conference started. On his last night (I had gone home), he experienced issues with his air conditioner and had to be moved to another room (which as he tells it, was quite an ordeal and took a significant amount of begging). His new room overlooked Bourbon Street. This was perfect for him as he enjoyed hearing the music and activity down on Bourbon Street; I definitely appreciated the quiet and solitude we had viewing the courtyard. We spent a lot of time walking around the French Quarter and I can say that I didn't see any other hotels that were in such a great location. If you drive, your car will be valet parked at some lot away from the hotel - it will take a while to get your car. Next time we visit, I don't think we will get a rental car as we didn't really drive anywhere other than to and from the airport.

Thank you for staying with us and travelling all the way from chilly Ohio. Our courtyard guestrooms are certainly a respite from the celebration of Bourbon Street. Please let all your friends and family know we are ready to welcome them to the historic French Quarter!

Return visitors to Bourbon Orleans, bringing friends this trip for a long weekend of Mardi Gras. Stay Friday 2/21 through Sunday 2/23. Friends opted for interior standard room, great room on interior pool courtyard. They got more sleep than we did, in our loft room with balcony on Orleans side. Could throw beads to the corner of Bourbon and Orleans, and balcony provided a good party and smoke option for those that chose to. Noise was as expected, part of the atmosphere, with partying continuing on Bourbon until wee hours. Still managed to sleep, but be advised street cleaning occurs during MG every day, starting somewhere around 6:30am.

Service by all staff was impeccable; friendly, attentive, and accommodating. All special requests were met - room location, extra robes, late check-out. Did not eat in restaurant - no slam on the hotel, just too many great options in NOLA.

Strong wifi signal in both rooms, apparently from lobby service.

Would not consider any other hotel in French Quarter. Perfectly located. Between Bourbon and Royal, so party or shopping was either a right or left out the front door.

Only negatives are minor. Bathroom was well appointed, but shower head location relative to soap tray meant either your back or your elbows hit the tray every time you moved. Looked good, not so functional. Welcome drink coupons upon arrival, good at hotel bar at corner of Bourbon. $7 value each still meant round of (4) drinks totaled $35 out of pocket. Great drinks and service, but many other bars matched the experience at more competitive prices.

Will return again, and will continue to recommend to others.

Room Tip: Interior courtyard if you want quiet sleep. Balcony loft room makes a great party venue for 2-3 cou...

Great!
We booked a group though your group person Susan Mack. She was fantastic. She helped us with our reservations and got us just what we wanted.
We had stayed at the Royal Sonesta for ten years prior and thought that was best hotel in NO.

Wrong! You guys beat them hands down--- rooms size,cleanliness, service,and just generally more friendly.

Thanks for making us feel special!
We want to come back next year!

We stay at Bourbon Orleans every time we are in town. On the corner of Bourbon and Orleans (and Royal) Streets, it is in the middle of the French Quarter (translated literally into French = "Carre Francais" and not "Vieux Carre" which means Old Square.) The main lobby is large and elegant with a high ceiling. Has nice electric grand piano; even given bottle of wine by the management for playing the piano for them. Above the main lobby is a large ballroom where special functions such as weddings and balls are held. The rooms are comfortable. Ours, room 543, had a balcony overlooking Orleans Street and we could see the Mardi Gras parades passing by. The minibar has been removed which is a good thing as I always spend the first five minutes in a hotel room removing everything out so I can use it as a refrigerator. The beds are very comfortable and housekeeping is very efficient.
