The Bourbon Orleans Hotel has many stories to tell, sitting on the site of both the grand old Orleans Theater and Ballroom, and a former convent. Restored in the 1960s in the Creole style of the French Quarter, the Bourbon's rooms are all unique. From the gilded hangings of the ballroom and meeting halls to the Provencal furnishings of the Governor's Suite, the grandeur of Old Louisiana is everywhere guests look. A complimentary welcome beverage at the Bourbon O is your initial dose of New Orleans hospitality, while resident Creole restaurant, Roux, serves up jumbo shrimp and fried green tomatoes. The saltwater pool forms a calm oasis in the courtyard, a quiet counterpoint to the Bourbon Street bustle outside the front door.

Neighborhood
Right on Bourbon Street, the Bourbon Orleans boasts quick access to the attractions of the French Quarter, as well as some of the finest music found in the "Birthplace of Jazz". Head down Orleans Street for the pedestrian-only section of Royal Street and its lively outdoor performers, or take a detour down Pirate Alley, which runs along the west side of St. Louis Cathedral and ends at Jackson Square, a U.S. National Historic Landmark. You're also never far from the banks of the Mississippi and its vintage steamboat tours.
Hints and tips
Balcony suites overlook Bourbon Street, St. Ann or Orleans Street, and the grand St. Louis Cathedral, so book here for a unique vantage point.

Those with a taste for the supernatural should keep their eyes peeled for the Bourbon's three 'resident' ghosts, including a confederate soldier patrolling the sixth and third floors and a spectral figure waltzing beneath the ballroom chandeliers.

Area description
Its central New Orleans location, just steps away from the famed St. Louis Cathedral, means you're never far from the best the city has to offer-from upscale shopping on Royal Street, to the local artists and performers of Jackson Square, to all of the restaurants, museums, galleries and nightlife in between.

Fun Bourbon Street Weekend!

This was a great place to stay! The staff was super friendly, especially Caleb, yes we remembered your name!! Thanks for the great experience. We will definitely stay here again. It's just one block from all the fun at Royal & Bourbon Streets and close to the park! Valet parking was the key...even though it was $34 a day. Well worth it to not have to worry about finding a spot!!

Excellent location

The Hotel is in a great location. It is right next to Bourbon St & Kackson Square. Next to the square is the Cabildo Museum and all the horse carriages and famous Cafe Du Mounte. Also the Riverfront area, royal stree for shopping, EVERYTHING!If you stay there no car will be needed. Rooms have no refrigerator unless you ask for it and breakfast too expensive. If travelling with a handicap person do not recommend because only have ONE handicap room and other bathrooms toiletts are low. But all that is beatten by the location.

Had a wonderful visit

Our room was on the 6th floor overlooking St. Ann Street. We loved the room and the view. Every single staff person we came across was friendly and welcoming. The location could not be beat - 1/2 a block off of Bourbon and close to Jackson Square. I would definitely stay there again. I wish I was still there.

Our best meal was at NOLA on Saint Louis Street. We went for lunch and didn't have to wait for a table. I highly recommend it.

Wonderful hotel in a wonderful city!

The hotel was excellent! It is in the perfect location, our room overlooked Bourbon Street, but it was surprisingly quiet, even with all of the activity at night. The pool was great, the bar was reasonable, and I loved the coffee in the lobby in the morning, and the infused water and iced tea in the afternoon. Plus, the inexpensive Bloody Mary in the morning was delicious! We had a great experience and will be staying here, again, when we go back to the French Quarter. (And spend the money on the valet parking. It was well worth it.)

Great stay

All of the hotel staff were very nice. Front desk was very helpful and accommodating our special needs. Room was very nice although it was small, which is normal for New Orleans. Room was very quiet despite being sold out.
