Enjoy the good times at this historic French Quarter hotel

The Bourbon Orleans was one of the city's grandest ballrooms in the 1800s and spent time as a convent and orphanage. Today, this French Quarter hotel offers visitors a glimpse into the past while offering contemporary comforts in 211 rooms (no two are alike). The peach and cream lobby with its Oriental rugs and Chippendale furnishings harkens to a more genteel time. Storied ghostly inhabitants include a confederate soldier, children from the Holy Sisters orphanage and a lone dancer twirling under the ballroom's glittering chandeliers.

Highlights
  • Rich New Orleans history
  • Courtyard pool and patio
  • Ballroom
  • Smoke-free
Rooms

None of the 211 rooms and suites are alike, but all offer ergonomically designed Hermann Miller desk chairs, marble baths, fine fabrics and Queen Anne-style furnishings. Irons and ironing boards, coffee makers and free local calls cover the details of a comfortable stay. Fees apply for high-speed Internet access. Twenty-eight suites provide a variety of options including some on two levels and others with balconies overlooking Bourbon Street. The entire hotel is smoke-free.

Features

The on-site Roux on Orleans offers Creole cuisine for breakfast and dinner and also supplies room service. Watch the street scene and enjoy an adult beverage at the open daily Bourbon Oh, accessible from the lobby. Napoleon's Itch is next door to Bourbon Oh! The swanky, New York style club, is a late-night hangout. Need a break from the fun? Try the courtyard pool. Brides can choose the intimate St. Ann Cottage or the opulent Bourbon Orleans ballroom for their wedding. There is valet parking (fees apply).

Ideal Location

The staff was friendly, the room was clean and we wished we could have taken the bed and pillows home with us!!! Only steps away from any amenity you could desire. Drink prices in the "O" Bar were a little over the top, but the entertainment was lovely. I will be looking into returning again next year at the French Quarter Festival, only this time, I will try to get a balcony room to see all the activities from a bird's eye view!!!

Great for our needs

This was an excellent hotel right in the heart of the French Quarter. Great location, great staff. The rooms were fine. Perfect for what you'd expect in an old French Quarter hotel. Wasn't too noisy at all even given we were there during the peak of Carnival. Only complaint is that I was hoping to see a ghost!

Great hotel in the center of it all

The Bourbon Orleans is the perfect hotel for seeing New Orleans. IT is in the perfect location, the rooms are very nice. The attached bar/lounge is great as well. The nightly singer in the lounge was excellent. The staff is beyond friendly during out entire stay. Jackson Square is literally a block away. So many shops and restaurants, artists right next door. A quick taxi ride to Frenchman Street. NO more then 5 minutes. It just doesn't get 5 stars only because its not at the luxury level of some higher end places.

Bourbon orleans

The hotel is classic New Orleans. It's everything go you would expect in a hotel so close to bourbon street! The room are clean and nice, bed is not as soft as I would like but that's me. The bar staff was not as friendly as the location it is in could improve on that area but besides that very good overall.

Awesome time

I really enjoyed my experience at this hotel . We arrived early , I did not think they would let us check in but they did . The staff was friendly and very helpful . This hotel is close to Canal , Frenchmen street and accessible to all the shops in the French quarter . I look forward to staying here again on my next visit to NOLA.

Right in the Heart of New Orleans

Great hotel right in the heart of the French quarter-one block from Bourbon Street and about 1 1/2 blocks from Jackson square. Close to great restaurants and a short walk to Frenchmen's street and the French market. Beds were comfy. We had a beautiful view of the pool from our room. When we didn't want to wait for a table at Cafe DuMonde we took back our bienets and ate them on the patio next to the pool. Very quiet even at night. Newly remodeled. Would definitely stay there again.

Historic Hotel with great suites

Two story gallery suites on Bourbon and St. Anne streets. Corner of Bourbon and Orleans, right in the action. You should expect it to be loud unless you have an interior pool view.

We had a great time, great location!

Perfect location to make your way to the historic district , walk the river or hop a streetcar to the Garden District, even to attend mass at St. Louis Cathedral. Spectacular! Bourbon St is around the corner, so if that's what you are looking for it is there, if not, turn left.
