“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

A girlfriend and I spent a week exploring the French Quarter while staying at the lovely Chateau Orleans. Great location only two blocks from both Bourbon St. and Canal. Our accommodations were a small 2 story house inside a tropical courtyard. The full kitchen was newly remodeled and the furnishings were attractive and comfortable. More floor or table lamps in the living room and bedroom would have been useful. Free wifi throughout the resort so making dinner reservations, etc. was simple. The manager, Paul, was so helpful and accommodating. He booked an excellent swamp tour for us as well as a plantation visit. Overall, a good place to stay with true NOLA ambience.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the courtyard and away from the busy street.

As with everything in life, your expectations will dictate your experience. This is a nice enough place, in an amazing location, with rates that are pretty standard for New Orleans. They do coffee in the courtyard on weekdays, bloody marys on the weekends, and have regular cleaning service for trash, new towels, etc. The Chateau Orleans is not new, it's not super updated, and it's not always the most pristine (but let's face it... neither is New Orleans; you're gonna get a little dirty there, ya heard me?) - it is comfortable, clean, safe, and a great place to stay in New Orleans... I've been staying there since 2001, and I'll be back again and again and again!

My husband was about to have a big birthday and had never been to NOLA. I booked the trip just two weeks ahead of time. With the SF 49ers playing the Saints that weekend all hotels were booked.......My score! I found Chateau Orleans which was in the best location possible. The rooms were clean, well appointed and the hosts were friendly and full of information. The town house was magnificent, renovated up to date but still full of old NOLA charm with chandeliers, crown moldings and so much more. We will be back and hopefully will be lucky enough to stay here again! This was my 5th trip and Chateau Orleans was the best place I have stayed. Oh, I almost forgot the Bloody Mary's...I have NEVER had any hotel, B & B, Time share or even a private home who let you make your own on Saturday and Sunday mornings...excellent!

My family and I recently stayed here for a family vacation. I was a little hesitant to stay after reading some of the reviews, but was pleasantly surprised when we arrived. There are signs everywhere stating that they are currently undergoing renovations, and you can tell that they are seriously upgrading things. The walls are painted with beautiful murals, the courtyard is very nice, the pool is clean, and Mary, Paul, and Susie were all VERY helpful.

Overall Our suite was decent but it had very dated furniture and flooring. The walls were recently done, there were new lighting fixtures, and the place was pretty clean. The whirlpool tub is permanently out of order, but we had not planned to use it anyway. There were other rooms that were further ahead in the upgrading process and they had full sized appliances and newer furniture.

The location of this place is GREAT! You can walk just about anywhere in the French quarter and it's is two blocks from bourbon st. I would recommend this place and the only reason I won't give it five stars is because they are not done renovating yet.

A word of caution, if you plan to have a car prepare to pay a lot for parking. The hotel does offer a parking pass to park in the garage, but it's about 140 a week. Also, do not valet your cars because the valets are very careless and often speed through the parking garage.

Been at the Chateau Orleans three times, and just learned my lesson. Liked the place because of the location.
But after getting raped by the prices they charge during the Essence festival or any other large
event going on in the city.I will never come there again. I paid 3 weeks in advance for the fourth of July weekend. 7/4/13-7/8/13 for a 1 bedroom $915. I was told when I arrived they needed a card for incidentals. 2 weeks after the trip, I reviewed my american express bill, and realized The Chateau Orleans charged me another $915 dollars. I used my debit card initially. $1830.00 is an expensive dam mistake..TAKE A CHANCE ON A 2 STAR HOTEL,THAT CHARGES 5 STAR RATES IF YOU WANT....

We also traded our timeshare week for this hotel. Yes, this hotel is currently undergoing some renovation, but it is important to keep in mind that the building is well over 100 years old, with all of the charm and quirks that come with a building that age. That said, the room was clean and more than adequate - not too noisy at all. Mary, Paul, and Susie were all informative and friendly. The location of the hotel is ideal. This is one of the very best vacations we have ever taken. We can't wait to come back!

We stayed here as a trade on our timeshare. We were on the streetside and close to the gates where the workmen entered and exited during the contruction of the other units.
We had ample space in our accommodation. We stayed in the Jean Lefatte unit on the ground level.
Mary and Paul the owners were very hospitable and gave us good advice and tips on the area for dining and other novelties.They went out of their way to make us feel at home. Bloody Mary's in the morning along with beignets and strong chicory coffee every day. The pool was refreshing and the landscape is very tropical. We dined under stars close to the pool with a few meals from the local restuarants.
The location is the best not far from Canal Street, Bourban Street and it is within walking distance of
all the wonders of the French Quarter. The nices part of New Orleans is the people. They are the nicest, friendliest and are sincere in their hospitality. I would not hestitate to recommend this Hotel and it's location to anyone. You made our vacation a most memorable one. Thank you Mary and Paul. If you want a real treat take the City of Orleans Amtrax train from Chicago to Nola and back and really see the country....we did and loved it!

Room Tip: Ask for a suite away from the street closer to the pool if you don't mind the Friday and Saturda...
