Bourbon Orleans Hotel

Reviewed 24 February 2014

From the impressive façade to the welcoming lobby to the comfortable rooms, this is a great hotel with excellent, courteous service without being stuffy. The only problem we had was that there was a problem with the plumbing in our room which they could not fix, so they moved us to another room. Most hotels of this quality will move you to a nicer room when something like this happens, but the room we were moved to was actually not quite as nice, which was disappointing. We would certainly go back though, as I'm sure that's an atypical occurrence and the staff did the best they could.
A tip about music- if you are looking for jazz and Dixieland, Bourbon St itself only has 2 places to offer these days, Maison Bourbon and Fritzels. Both are on Bourbon just a few blocks east of the hotel. The rest of Bourbon St, sadly, is strictly an inebriated party scene now. The real music scene is on Frenchman, about a 15 or 20 minute walk from the hotel.

Room Tip: We asked for a room on the courtyard- Bourbon Street is fine but when it's time to sleep you don...

We would not stay anywhere else in The Quarter. From the moment we arrive in our car, Louis greets us with a hug and a handshake, Derek gets us situated in our room and Carolina at the front desk welcomes us with just the room (Loft Suite) we ask for.

This is more than a hotel; it's history.

Very nice and clean rooms, spacious balconies, perfect location in the center of The Quarter and the staff treats us like family.

Our fifth stay in two years was a special as every other time we've been.

Room Tip: Spring for a loft and balcony!

my husband and I just got back from our great stay at the Bourbon Orleans . The staff was wonderful and very helpful for our first time to New Orleans. We could not have found a better location. Charming, beautiful, and seconds away from the action. Charles at the from desk was a great help, and the beautiful tall thin hostess at the breakfast buffet was so fun to talk to!! Also very friendly and interesting was Lynn at the bar!! I can't wait to go back!!

If you want to be at the centre of all the action in the French quarter then you can't do much better than this hotel. Located right behind Jackson square it's harder to be more perfectly located and the hotel has as much character as the buildings that surround it. The staff were very friendly and after a long night of partying the bed is very comfortable. It can be a little noises if you've an outward facing room, but then don't book a hotel in the French quarter if you want peace and quiet.

Excellent service, amenities and accommodations. We booked through hotel tonight and everything was as expected and beyond. We were treated to a complimentary drink at the hotel bar. The room was delightful and had a view of their lighted pool and mezzanine area. The service was impeccable. We had a delightful time. I would highly recommend the hotel, and we will be returning soon.

Room Tip: Every room is a bit different. Let them know what you are looking for. The staff is excellent about...

This Hotel has it all, Great Price & Great Location, Very Clean and the staff is friendly. We couldn't say anything bad at all about this excellent hotel. The hotel has a wonderful bar with live entertainment. The lobby has free fresh cold fruit flavor water at all times. The Lobby also has on Sundays the "Best "Bloody Marie" cocktail in town. The restaurant was very clean and food was good. Next time we visit Bourbon Street we will definitely stay here again,

Room Tip: If you don't want the noise of bourbon street at night ask for a room facing the pool area,

The hotel is in nice shape overall and in a great location in the French quarter. The staff is friendly and professional and everything goes well as long as there are no issues. We had our room wifi service not work for about 24 hours, as well as an item go missing from our room. In each instance after we reported the problem, we were told the manager would get back with us. In reality we had to call back 3 to 4 times for each issue to finally get a resolution, were never pro-actively called back. Regarding the internet, were eventually told to call the service provider, where I had to wait over 30 minutes on hold before it was resolved. The hotel eventually credited our bill for the missing item, calling it an "over cleaning" issue but the overall lack of responsiveness to our initial report as well as having to pursue a resolution with the hotel left something to be desired.

The hotel restaurant looked nice however never saw more than one or two tables full at dinner. The bar is nice but you need to order at the bar and get your own drinks which is not real convenient. The pool area looks like it would be really nice when it is warm enough to use.
