The Bourbon Orleans Hotel in New Orleans
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.
Make yourself at home in one of the 218 air-conditioned rooms featuring iPod docking stations and flat-screen televisions. Complimentary wired and wireless Internet access keeps you connected, and cable programming provides entertainment. Private bathrooms with showers feature designer toiletries and complimentary toiletries. Conveniences include safes and desks, as well as phones with free local calls.
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.
Don’t miss out on recreational opportunities including an outdoor pool and a fitness center. Additional features include complimentary wireless Internet access, concierge services, and wedding services.
