“Paradise in Jackson Square”
Reviewed August 30, 2014

My wife and I have stayed here several times over a couple years. You want find anywhere that is better that the folks at The Bourbon Orleans. They know how to make your stay worry free. It's close to everything in the Quarter.

This is not one of those places that you get tired of staying at after several times. The hotel has a lot of history and character. The rooms are quiet, clean, spacious and the hotel is located in a safe area.

Don't hesitate! Book your stay.

Room Tip: Ask for 3rd floor rooms ( quieter) with pool view.

Stayed here in August as part of a group and had an excellent experience. The room was clean and spacious and the maid service excellent.

I loved the pool which was a welcome retreat when experiencing August weather! The attached bar was a perfect meeting place for our group socials. The lobby was cool and welcoming. The breakfast buffet was awesome as was the service.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the French Quarter without hesitation. The location was perfect and the staff top notch.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pool are on the quiet side

We really enjoyed our visit to the Bourbon Orleans hotel , were there for 5 nights 6 days. We had a fantastic time. The hotel was just beautiful. The staff was very nice and polite. Also the two concierges we worked with were very helpful. The guys at the doors were always pleasant and helpful with directions etc our room was clean and very comfortable . The hotel is right in the middle of everything. I would defiantly recommend this hotel to all my friends and family. Our experience was definitely a good one. Our experience to New Orleans was great I can't wait to go back again. The hotel was beautiful the staff was fantastic.

Room Tip: I would ask for a balcony next time and a frig for the room.

We ended up staying in Bourbon Orleans Hotel after a booking on air bnb fell through and this actually turned out to be a stroke of luck.

The hotel is smart and has attentive staff and great facilities (swimming pool, tourist guide, daily room service, free coffee in lobby etc).

Location is spot on- right next to Bourbon St (the party street) and Royal St (a smart shopping and cafe street). It's right in the middle of the French Quarter which is the smarter bit of New Orleans, best for shops and restaurants.

To avoid noise from Bourbon St I suggest booking a room facing the pool, on the Royal St + Orleans St corner of the hotel.

The decor of the hotel is modern and certainly high quality compared to the majority of other places we saw.

I recommend the hotel over other chains such as Hilton and Hyatt based on location and quality.

Room Tip: Don't get a room that backs onto Bourbon St unless you're a heavy sleeper. I had a room that...

We have stayed at the Bourbon Orleans multiple times and love the location and the property. It may sound funny, but one of the reasons we love the hotel is that there is a world class bar attached to the hotel. Although located on Bourbon Street, we love the fact that we can spend time in a sophisticated, clean bar that serves fantastic drinks with a fun staff. Craft beer, fresh cocktails and great live music really add to the guest experience.

Free coffee in the lobby is a great perk as is the refreshing fruit infused water waiting after a hot day walking around town. The location is perfect and great proximity to Royal Street and Frenchmen Street. Great restaurants are only a couple of blocks away. Oh, and all of the staff, especially the housekeepers, are always so friendly! I am in the hospitality business and am pretty critical. This hotel staff always does a great job. - Kevin

We really enjoyed our stay at the Bourbon Orleans Hotel. The hotel is located in the heart of the French Quarter, yet it was remarkably quiet in the guest rooms. The hotel has a nice, upscale lobby and lovely guest rooms, decorated in traditional style. The pool was located in a beautiful courtyard. We loved that Cafe DuMonde was only a few blocks away, so we could get hot beignets and coffee every morning. Be aware that parking for the hotel was very expensive (but likely typical for the French Quarter). It was also a little inconvenient that the hotel required a 30 minute notice to retrieve your car.
