“Excellent Stay!”
Reviewed 11 December 2012

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.

We stayed more than a week at this charming hotel, where nobody makes any bones about it being haunted. First couple of days were vacation, then a meeting. Over the week, the staff started to recognize us and welcome us back each time we left and returned. The manager, Mark, had a delightful Christmas tree lighting party while we were there. Alexander, at the front desk, was full of great dining suggestions. Louis, at the valet station, was extremely helpful in booking a cab to the airport for us. Altogether a lovely stay. Only suggestion--we could have used a couple more chairs in our room. Thanks everybody!

We have stayed at the Bourbon Orleans twice now and have had a great experience each time. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly, the rooms are very nice and the location is one of the best in the Quarter. We will definitely return.

Room Tip: With a value rate you may be furthest from the elevator so if walking is an issue you may want to pa...
