Bourbon Orleans Hotel
Ranked #9 of 167 Hotels in New Orleans
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 July 2014

On a 3 night escape weekend stayed in a Petite Balcony room facing Orleans St. All I can say is I loved the room, the hotel location and the staff, All, were friendly-helpful and had a warm hospitality approach to the guests. The Bourbon O cocktail lounge is a blast from the past with live music and mixologists superb, especially Miss Becca. The location is a short walk anywhere in the Quarter and as for any 'noise' just bring along soft earplugs as Bourbon St does party hearty, but thats part of the charm. Enjoyed the pool in the courtyard, in fact, everything about the hotel. Have stayed many places in New Orleans over the years, but I have a new favorite for staying in the Quarter: Bourbon Orleans!

Room Tip: St Annes or Orleans St have lovely views.

This was my second time staying at this hotel. The location on the Quarter is great and the hotel has good history.

Last year housekeeping was great. This year, not so much. "Clean" sheets had stains. When housekeeping was asked to place new ones, they were worse. In my thoughts, if you are going to use white sheets, use bleach or be ready to replace them when the menstrual stain doesn't come out!

I have a 16 month old that dropped cookie crumbs on the floor. Of course, we did our best to clean up after him and pick up his crumbs, but the room needed to be vacuumed. Over 3 days, housekeeping never vacuumed. When we checked under the beds for any belongings before checking out, let me say I'm just glad my kids didn't come across any of the "goodies" that were under Based on the amount of dust, I would guess it had been at least a year since cleaned.

It's a good location and a neat hotel with a lot of history, but i expect more cleanliness for the price you pay. Not sure I'd stay there again.

Wonderful accommodations and staff. Very close to all of the action on Bourbon street, but still very quiet. The only problem was that we couldn't get WIFI in our room. Other than that it was perfect.

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.
