My husband came to this hotel for my birthday back in home of Nawlins (August 3rd-8th). Was met with friendly valets (Shout-Out to Louis!) and, staff. The check-in was a breeze. Louis was so kind and, wished me a Happy Birthday several times with an oh so sweet "Welcome Home Christy!" (Nawlins is my birthplace). To hear happy birthday was great but, to hear welcome home was so much sweeter.
As I looked around the living room, I was surprised to see (with tears) a bottle of champagne (ice cold in a bucket), 2 champagne glasses, 2 VIP pin, a birthday card and, a birthday note personally signed by the general manger HIMSELF wishing me an happy birthday and, welcoming me home. I cried!!! I have never felt so welcomed at a hotel in my life. I felt so, so, so... I have no words for it. I was overcome by emotions! What an AWESOME beginning to my trip back home. I am so appreciative to Bourbon Orleans for doing that for little oh me. THANK YOU BOH!!
So, with all that said.... The staff was so friendly. Whatever I needed, they served. The food was oh so good. They have the BEST pizza my husband and I have EVER had! Their breakfast food is some of the best I've had! Their mimosas was good too with fruit to make it extra pretty and good.
It was a bit loud outside and, it traveled into our room. The walls in the rooms are a bit thin but, not too much. The front desk sent up ear plugs and, they worked! Remind you, our room was at the corner of Bourbon St. so, the loudness is to be expected. If you bring a fan, you're good to go.
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!! You are a block from Bourbon St., a block from Royal St., St. Louis Cathedral in eyesight and a small walk to Cafe Du Monde. You are in the prime location of everything happening in the French Quarter. Do you need groceries to get you by with your stay? You are a small walk from Rouses on Royal St, to get whatever you need. Great location!
The hotel has a NO SMOKING policy but, if you have a room adjoined with a balcony, you can smoke on the balcony but ONLY if you have a balcony.. You can smoke at the pool area but, that's about the only places you can smoke at BOH. Bring an ashtray if you have a balcony room because BOH does not furnish one. Also, the rooms do have a refrigerator but, none of the rooms have a microwave.
All in all, the staff and valets was friendly. My husband and I felt so welcomed! We will definitely return to BOH in the future. Can't wait!
Bourbon Orleans Hotel, THANK YOU SO MUCH for the hospitality, my birthday cards, notes and champagne! Your staff is A+ and, deserve all the accolades that one gets for a job well done!
