My wife and I have visited New Orleans on many occasions but this was our first stay at the Bourbon Orleans. The location is excellent, just a couple blocks from Jackson Square and seconds from either Bourbon or Royal Streets. The hotel can easily be overlooked among the other larger "classic" accommodations in the area such as the Royal Sonesta, the Monteleone or the Omni Royal Orleans. This would be a pity.
The Bourbon Orleans is elegant and historic without being old-fashioned. The rooms are large and quiet -- even our room facing Bourbon Street was well insulated from the frenzy outside. The bathrooms are spacious and the shower excellent -- water controls at the back . . . how sensible! The staff were friendly and professional, looking out for the comfort of their guests. Our complaints were entirely minor--a wet bar but no mini-fridge, a couple stray clothing tags left in a drawer when we checked in, a particularly harried morning in the breakfast restaurant--and in no way detracted from our visit.
When visiting New Orleans it is always great to find a hotel that, even inside, lets you know you are in New Orleans. Strongly recommended.
