The Bourbon Orleans offered everything we needed and then some. From the initial consultation with Alyssa Sheehan who was a life saver, to Adam Gaudry the Food and Beverage Manager, to Charles and Felix and Brittany and the GM, not a single unprofessional moment. The venue is spectacular, the food was great, the service stellar, the execution 100%. Alyssa is amazing! She is organized, kept everything on a perfect time line, and had fabulous recommendations. DJ Dave Cohen, fabulous, Event Rentals for beautiful linens, etc. We had children and they accommodated a special menu within the set menu for the kids. Guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been too! The Bourbon Orleans and the people who represent the hotel are the reason why!

THE BEST PLACE EVER TO SPEND YOUR WEDDING NIGHT!! Hands down!! First, the hotel is STUNNING!! It is the epitome of a French Quarter Hotel. We had the honeymoon suite and it was spectacular. The suite was a huge loft with a wrap around balcony on Bourbon St and St Ann. The staff at Bourbon Orleans was one of a kind!! They made sure that we had every amenity and their goal was our satisfaction. I would highly recommend staying at the Bourbon Orleans for your wedding night!

I don’t know where to start…..
Megan is beyond AMAZING! She made the wedding process enjoyable, stress free and very easy! And I was planning it from another state. From the first meeting we had, my husband and I loved the St. Anne Cottage. We wanted our wedding to be intimate and fun. She and I emailed very often and she always responded quickly. As the big day got closer we would email at least once a day.

I can’t say enough about the staff. MR CHARLES is AWESOME!!! The executive chief accommodated my food allergy which was greatly appreciated. He even made me a special shrimp appetizer. Going on 2 weeks later I am still receiving compliments on the appetizers and main course that were served. I got the chicken which was beyond delish but the pork chop had everyone talking. And it was not a little pork chop… it was HUGE! The bar… ahhhhh the bartenders made great drinks!

The Bourbon Orleans is in great location so there were many options for our wedding guest. The room was always clean, huge bathroom and comfy bed.

From the moment you open your car door at the valet you feel so welcome! Every person we came across was very helpful and you could tell they generally cared about us being happy.

We are planning on going back in July 2016 for our 1 yr. anniversary. The hotel is beautiful and great location but the staff makes it a great place to stay!

Thank you Megan and all the staff for making our wedding amazing and memorable.

The Bourbon Orleans Hotel and, most especially, our wedding coordinator, Megan, were wonderful to work with and provided us a fantastic experience, which helped us make the wedding and reception one of the best days of our lives. In advance of the wedding, Megan was tremendously responsive (which was important since it was a destination wedding for us) and provided an excellent list of preferred vendors. She even intervened to convince one vendor to take us on, even though it was a busy time for that kind of service in the city. We were married in St. Anne's Cottage (one of the venues at the hotel), which perfectely suited our needs; the food was excellent and the decorations were perfect. Moreover, as we went through the rehearsal and event, when we said "oops, we did not think of that" Megan stepped in with very helpful recommendations. She also coordinated with each vendor before, and during the event to ensure that everything ran smoothly. The hotel accommodations, location on Bourbon Street, and pricing were excellent for our group, and the hotel made it very easy for the wedding party to make reservations, etc. All-in-all the Bourbon Orleans Hotel, and Megan, were the best choice we made for our event. We highly recommend them!

We loved having our wedding at the Bourbon Orleans!!! I was so incredibly happy with the Bourbon Orleans Hotel & their private events coordinator Alyssa! Our wedding was everything we could've hoped for and more! Down to every detail, special request or random question Alyssa was there to help us and work with us to make our stay and wedding day exactly what we wanted! We had our reception there as well as a block of rooms and they made us all feel like we were the most important people visiting that week. It was amazing! The Ballroom is absolutely gorgeous and gives you that true New Orleans feel. As well as the location and proximity to everything your guests would want to do can't be beat! Everything is right there! Service was wonderful, rooms were a great size & clean and most importantly everyone had a BLAST! We couldn't have been more pleased with all the organization and the way the details of our wedding came together. Best. Day. Ever. Would recommend to anyone!

I picked this hotel because it was in the heart of Jackson Square. My husband & I took a day trip to visit the hotel. It was perfect. We were planning a small ceremony. I met Megan, she was going to handle everything from food to service, since we didnt reside in New Orleans. The hotel staff was very accommodating. Everything, every detail was perfect. I wish I could do it all again. Thank you Bourbon Orleans Hotel for my fairytale wedding.

We held our ceremony and reception at the Bourbon Orleans in the Orleans Ballroom and I couldn't have been happier. The Orleans ballroom is a beautiful backdrop for either your ceremony or reception with antique furnishings and gorgeous chandeliers. We didn't want to get married in a meeting space, and this ballroom definitely is a place of celebration, not just boring old conferences! The staff was amazing, including the wedding coordinator (it is free with the reception). That alone was worth having the wedding there because I always had someone to contact directly if I had any questions, and also on the night of the reception, someone who took care of all the little things that you don't want to think about on your wedding day. The staff cut our cake for free (don't be fooled, some places charge a hefty fee for this), the food was delicious, and we recieved so many compliments from our guests on the venue. The Bourbon Orleans also has longstanding relationships with a lot of the best vendors in New Orleans, so they can recommend trusted vendors that they know will deliver. The best part of the Bourbon Orleans, however, is the location. Right between St. Louis Cathedral and Bourbon Street, it is within walking distance to everything your guests could want to see/eat/experience. Our guests are naming our wedding the "best wedding ever" because of the venue as well as the ability to experience New Orleans first hand by staying here. If you're undecided about where to host your French Quarter wedding, take a look at the Bourbon Orleans!!

The Bourbon Orleans Hotel made our wedding dreams come true! As a semi-destination wedding, Megan was amazing to work with long-distance, and she answered ever question and query with a short response time. She and the hotel were amazingly flexible in helping us come up with the perfect menu, and the catering staff was a dream. From the moment we stepped foot on the grounds, Megan was there to help us unpack decor, decorate, coordinate with my family, break down, and overall be absolutely magic for us. The Bourbon Orleans Hotel is by far not the cheapest option in the Quarter, but the venue (St. Ann Courtyard/Cottage- breathtaking!), the food, the suite (also gorgeous), the staff, and even the bar (O- great cocktails!), made our event appear even more expensive than it really was! Be prepared to have an Old World wedding in a gorgeous city, with an attentive staff and wildly competent planner/coordinator. Our guests still haven't stopped talking about the food or the venue.
