Bourbon Orleans Hotel Review

With a location that's about as central as it gets, plus upgraded, spacious guest rooms, this lodging remains one of the most popular options on Bourbon Street. The guest rooms are well appointed, but those facing the street may let in the nightly Bourbon Street din. There are ergonomic office chairs and free in-room Wi-Fi. The lobby level, which exudes turn-of-the-20th-century New Orleans glamour, is where you'll find the Roux on Bourbon Restaurant and the Bourbon Oh! bar, a quiet place to people-watch over cocktails. The bar here, Napoleon's Itch, is great for late-night Bourbon Street fun. The new restaurant, Roux Orleans, is open for breakfast and dinner and has elevated New Orleans classics.

    Bourbon Orleans Hotel Review

    The is THE best location in the French Quarter. This is the only place to stay for the French Qusrter Festival that my husband and I come for every year. Some of the rooms are noisy but purchase some earplugs and have a good night.

    Best location ever!

    My husband and I have stayed at the Bourbon Orleans at least 10 times for our frequent visits to New Orleans. You can't ask for a better location--in the middle of the French Quarter. Rooms can be either adequate or extremely spacious depending on what's available. Warning: insist on a courtyard room or you will NEVER be able to get to sleep. We were once "upgraded" to a suite overlooking Bourbon Street and had to ask to be moved at 2am when it was clear that the window shaking noise was not going to let up--and this was at an ordinary time of year, not Mardi Gras! Also, you should know that this property is no longer owned by Wyndham, so your Wyndham benefits will not longer be available at this hotel. I noticed that the last time I booked the rates were higher because of this. In the past we usually got a great AAA/AARP deal.
