We finally had a free morning so we decided to catch up on some needed sleep after a couple early mornings. We woke at around 10am and decided that we should do some washing. We hadn't done any washing for about 11 days so it was much needed as there wasnt many clothes in our suitcases that were clean.

While the clothes were being washed …

Blake and I had very minimal rest last night. The wall at the Bourbon Orleans are practically paper thin! We had people yelling outside our room at 3am... I was ready to rage. After that neither of us slept particularly well. The bed was horrible and had plastic underneath the sheet which we realised later on was what made us both sweat like crazy …

This morning we watched the sun rise over Austin County as we drove back towards Houston to George Bush Intercontinental Airport for our flight to New Orleans (NOLA). Just our luck the sky had cleared and there was hardly any clouds to be seen. Country Texas had been just as I'd imagined with vast fields as far as you could see, ridiculous size …

A nice early start to the day is not what we look forward to but it is reality with travelling. We left in convoy at 5:45am, to get to Bush International Airport from our ranch. The weather had cleared up and it looked like it would have been an amazing day. We all wish we had another day or two there to get a bigger experience of Texas. I am so …

... deck, carried by a mechanism that is half escalator and half lift. Since the 1352 feet of the Sky deck we are blasť about its stunted 630 feet and the view is entirely without interest. We eat locally and hide in in our beautiful bedroom a little scared of the mattress de-mount but inevitably drawn to the buffet of chocolate on the floor below.

With no regrets we drive on to Memphis where certain dues have to be paid to Mr Presley. Whilst Graceland is ...

    Pleasant Stay


    I just got home from a very pleasantly uneventful 3-day stay in this hotel. I booked on their web site and found it to be a very good value. It is an older building (though not as old as most of the French Quarter) and, consequently, if I had been expecting new and perfect I would possibly have been disappointed. I happen to like old hotels and this one suited me fine. Its French Quarter location would be difficult to beat--I would definitely stay there again.

    Bourbon Orleans - Wonderful Hotel!


    Just returned from a 3-d stay at the Bourbon Orleans. It was a great stay, the room was large (by NO standards), clean, and well-appointed. I had french doors opening to the swimming pool, which also is large. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and there were no problems with my reservation, check-in or check-out. I paid $59/night for a king, this was a special. BTW, I am a Wyndham By-Request member.

    Not worth the price


    I just wanted to warn people to stay away from this hotel. This has to be the worst experience I have ever had with a Hotel. This place is dirty and the staff is horrible and uncaring. Everything everyone below says is completly true!

    Great Hotel!


    I have read all the negative reviews online, and harbored serious doubts about my stay here. After visiting the Bourbon Orleans, I have to wonder what hotel those with negative comments visited. The staff was always courteous and helpful. In fact, I found that even staff members we encountered in the hallway smiled and spoke words of greeting. Our room had a pationover looking St. Ann street. The room was a bit on the dark side, but it had 3 stategically placed lamps. Amenities were numerous, including 3 phones (1 in the bathroom!)modem hookup, iron and ironing board, hair dryer, etc. Each day, our room was cleaned with fresh towels brought. In fact, on our second night, we came back in the evening to find our sheets turned down and chocolates on the pillow. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and plan to stay there again. For those who are looking for peace and quiet during the nighttime hours, I highly recommend asking for a room overlooking the courtyard. The hotel is directly on Bourbon St and noise levels are very high.

    A wonderful hotel!


    I read all the negative reviews on this hotel after I had already made a reservation, and really had doubts on staying there. Had booked the townhouse suite for myself and my teenage daughter and her friend to stay in. The accomadations were wonderful! I do not know where all the bad reviews came from. The room was spacious, clean, had a great view of Bourbon Street from our balcony. The hotel itself is centrally located, and beautiful beyond words.The lobby is breathtaking! It is one of the nicest hotels we have ever stayed in, spotless and well run. The staff was knowledgable and very friendly. Even the doormen had a great way about them, always eager to help or just make conversation with us. I have nothing negative to say about this hotel or it's staff.. we had a great vacation and would go back in a minute. I highly recommend the Bourbon Orleans for a great place to stay.

    Ditto, ditto, ditto...


    Wyndham claimed to me that they don't get complaints on this property, but 90 percent of what I read online is negative. A fellow who has worked there since before Wyndham bought it told us that it's gone steadily down hill; that the attitude is because of location, they can treat people as they wish. And I guess pretty much they do: it's been over a year since I stayed, and I can tell by the reviews that nothing has changed. It was horrible...I ended up in the managers office, but that didn't do a whole lot of good. I won't repeat what the other reviews express, except to say, 'DITTO!'.

    Discourteous, incompetent staff


    Hello fellow travelers. If you're here then perhaps you're considering the Bourbon Orleans as a lodging option for an upcoming trip to New Orleans. I beg you to reconsider.

    This is a Wyndham?


    I made the reservations in July and confirmed in November for my New Year's vacation. First, instead of giving me the two beds I asked for they gave me one bed. If my friend and I were "that way" it would have been fine but that was unacceptable. Why reserve early if I couldn't get what I asked for? Next, there were no wash cloths in the bathroom and was told that there will be some available the next morning. We waited 30 mins before houskeeping finally brought them! To save money the heat didn't come on until 9am! It was an unexpected cold snap in December and it didn't make sense that they could not or would not get the heat going at least during the night. The location is wonderful, but the hotel is a dud!

    Let Down


    It isn't horrible but there is old elegant, old OK and old run down. This is the latter. Location is geat. parking is only by highway robery & it takes a LONG time to retrieve the car. Many items in room are broken, not life threatening but shoddy. It is OK but we will never stay there again.

    Bourbon Orleans


    After reading reviews about this hotel we were dreading our stay.The accomodation was perfectly adaquate.The pool and the hotel lobby really lovely.The only downside was the hotel reception staff who were less than efficient.Apart from this ,our stay in New Orleans was great.Give this Hotel a try.For the location is excellent.
