Bourbon Orleans Hotel
Ranked #8 of 166 Hotels in New Orleans
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 July 2014

We decided to visit New Orleans for our twentieth anniversary. We chose the Bourbon Orleans mainly based on TripAdvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. Great location in spite of its proximity to the insanity of Bourbon Street. The hotel is right smack dab in the middle of the French Quarter. The central location proved to be an excellent base of operations for exploring.
The room we had faced the pool and you would never know that there was a non-stop party going on just outside the hotel. The room was comfortable, and well appointed. The pool was a perfect place to unwind between daytime site-seeing and night time revelry. The attached bar and restaurant were both better than average. In fact the bar was way better than most on Bourbon Street.
Staff was always helpful and never in your face.
If you decide to stay here make sure you push yourself beyond the French Quarter. The city has so much more to offer than that hyper-touristy area.

Room Tip: Pool side if you want quiet street side if you want party

In the Heart of the Quarter. Not ultra - posh but they don't charge for that experience either. Very clean and comfortable. Good place for a young couple an safe for college coed's to stumble to from Bourbon St after 'sampling a few'!

I wanted to blow off some steam with my friend and Boy did we!

Room Tip: The bar is actually quite good. Stay hi-floor as you can.

We were there from out of town for a wedding reception. Stayed Friday and Saturday nights. Hotel is in an excellent location in the French Quarter directly behind Jackson Square and St. Louis Cathedral. Of course it is near the Bourbon street chaos...but was very quiet in room we had which was on the Courtyard side overlooking the beautiful pool. Convenient, classy, clean, friendly and a great bed. A bit pricy but it is a very nice hotel...and it is in New Orleans in a great location.

Great location right in the middle of the Quarter, but set back enough from Bourbon to not be too noisy. Wonderful bar focused on the art of cocktails - "mixologist" Becca June really knows her stuff.

Thanks to tripadvisor we chose the Bourbon Orleans for our anniversary trip to New Orleans. Very friendly & accommodating staff; from the front desk, to the maids, bellmen & valets. Room was clean & well decorated, although a little cramped. Nice bath, loved the walk-in shower & lighted makeup mirror. But our favorite was the Bourbon O bar. Cheryl, Becca June & the rest of the bar staff were delightful. We didn't spend too much time wandering Bourbon Street at night. It's very loud & so many drunks! We did our exploring during the day and spent our evenings at The Bourbon O. A bar for grown-ups -not old folks -but people who enjoy a friendly, personable & skilled staff, talented piano player & a lady with a great voice. Very much appreciated the ability to talk together & with others without screaming like so many places with loud music. The care & quality of the cocktails we had were top shelf. We had a great time there and highly recommend the Bourbon Orleans & the Bourbon O.

Room Tip: You might want to request a room with easy access to the main elevator. Our room was closer to the s...
