  • There are other views available, of another courtyard or of Bourbon St. , but we didn't opt to upgrade, as we'd be spending very little time actually in the hotel
  • The hotel is also getting older and some things do need to be updated, but overall it's still a great place to stay, especially given it's central location

      Located, aptly enough, at the corner of Bourbon and Orleans streets, the Bourbon Orleans is a beautiful hotel in New Orleans’ French Quarter. The hotel is large, with over 200 guest rooms all decorated in Victorian style. When you enter the lobby of the hotel, it is breaktaking, with what appear to be marble columns, plush velvet chairs and couches scattered throughout, and an inviting restaurant off to the side. When you check in, there are bottles of cold water waiting, and the front

      desk staff is welcoming and the check-in was conducted quickly.

      During our stay, we were on the 3rd floor, and our room faced over the pool and courtyard. There are other views available, of another courtyard or of Bourbon St., but we didn’t opt to upgrade, as we’d be spending very little time actually in the hotel. The room was larger than most ’standard’ hotel rooms, there were two double beds, a sitting area with a desk and chair, as well as a couch by the ...

        The pool area was very well maintained, and the pool itself was great. It was about average size, with sunchairs and tables lined up along the side of the building. It was never very crowded, which may be because we were there during the off season (at the end of May) or because people were too busy with everything

        on Bourbon St.

        Two small complaints about the hotel: the elevators are terribly slow, so it’s sometimes easier to take the stairs, and the bigger issue is that the walls are very thin. You can hear everything going on in the rooms next to you, and even above you, which can sometimes make sleeping difficult in the early morning. The hotel is also getting older and some things do need to be updated, but overall it’s still a great place to stay, especially given it’s central location.
