My stay at the bourbon Orleans was fantastic. It's close to bourbon st. and close to all the fine places to eat. The staff was friendly and went out of their way to make sure I was satisfied. I would def. recommend this as a place to stay.

The Bourbon Orleans Hotel is well-located in the heart of The French Quarter. Turn left on exiting the front door and you are one-half block from the unique shops of Royal Street; turn right and the bawdy excess of Bourbon Street is a half block away. The Mississippi riverfront with boat rides, dinner cruises, and the Riverwalk festival market is an easy five or ten minute walk. Many of the city’s famous restaurants are equally accessible. The Bourbon Orleans is a well-restored historic hotel with all the charm and the shortcomings of such a property. My room was spacious with a comfortable bed. Unfortunately, it lacked a comfortable chair, the only seating being a roll-around desk chair. The floor plan of the guest room floors is essentially a square with one inconvenient problem. You can’t walk all the way around the square and the two guest elevators are located at the far end of one of the dead end sides of the square. If you are assigned a high number room you will have a long walk to the elevators. Perhaps the greatest strength of the property is the friendly accommodating staff. The front door is always well covered by several bell staff members who never fail to open the door for you and wish you good by or welcome you back.

Room Tip: For each floor get the lowest number room you can. The best rooms are numbered X01 or X02. The 02 ro...

Hotel staff very attentive. The rooms are a bit small compared to similar priced luxury hotels on bourbon street, but the hotel itself is on the quieter end which allowed us to sleep at night. Bathroom is gorgeous. We were given 2 free drink tickets for the bar on check-in. Housekeeping was thorough. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: interior room-view of courtyard/pool, able to get more sleep at night

Terrific hotel, great location, very friendly staff and very comfortable bed when we could sleep!!! We stayed at the Bourbon Orleans Wed to Sunday for my husband & mines 40th birthday bash and had a wonderful time.
My only three complaints would be 1) the slamming of the doors which you can hear very clearly in every room; 2) the air did not work well at all Friday - Sunday so the rooms were very stuffy; 3) the maids talking very loudly back and forth to each other in the halls early in the morning.
Even with the above complaints we would stay at Bourbon Orleans again. :)

We stayed at this hotel during Mardi Gras this past February. What a great find! It is on Orleans Street right behind the St. Louis Cathedral. The hotel spans all the way from Bourbon to Royal Street so it's right in the heart of the French Quarter.

The room was small but it was well appointed with all the amenities, coffee pot, safe, hair dryer, iron etc. It was furnished and decorated very nicely and everything was clean and neat. The lobby was pleasing and relaxing as we waited for friends in the comfy lounge chairs. The hotel staff was friendly, attentive and helpful.

We were only a couple of blocks from the Cafe Du Monde so it became a ritual to hang out people watching while enjoying our delicious biegnets in the morning or late at night. On one side of the hotel you exited to all the revelry of Bourbon Street while the other way were the many interesting shops on Royal Street where there appears to be a small musical combo playing on every corner.

A nice, classy, comfortable hotel on a great location. Would stay there again.

Check in courteous...rooms fairly small. Nice ipad docker was very convenient. Felt springs through mattress and linens were not quality expected. Housekeeping adequate and helpful. Bar drinkks so expensive they had very little crowd. Heating and air were not comfortable. Fan ran continuously. Lots of little things would have made the experience better, but as the title said, the location makes up for a lot. They wanted approx 40$ a night for valet parking. We left vehicle at amtrak parking lot for 5$ a night and taxied to hotel for 10$. It was a breeze. The staff was courteous, helpful and made you feel welcome.

Room Tip: We stayed on fifth floor facing the pool. Fairly quiet. No problems.
