A French Quarter Treasure.
Set in the heart of the vibrant French Quarter, the historic Bourbon Orleans offers luxury and location. Featuring recent and modern hotel renovations, exceptional amenities, and gracious guest relations, the Bourbon Orleans and its staff will accommodate today’s traveler with the best in contemporary comfort, cuisine, and customer service.
The Bourbon Orleans Hotel pays homage to the city’s diverse history and heritage, showcasing the elegant Orleans Ballroom, quaint St. Ann Cottage, and guestrooms and suites with balconies overlooking the thoroughfare of Vieux Carré. Like the lilting crescendo of hot jazz and cool blues, the sights and sounds of New Orleans echo from wrought-iron to window shutter.
A FRENCH QUARTER TREASURE
Merging historic charm with modern features, the Bourbon Orleans Hotel includes fashionable décor, fresh paint and carpets, granite bathrooms and showers, and upgraded amenities such as 42” flat-screen TVs. With renewed hallway corridors and an expanded fitness facility, this distinctive French Quarter property presents clean and comfortable accommodations.
Midnight Boheme has worked with Bourbon Orleans and its outlets since 2010 and the hotel marks one of the first official clients of the graphic design company in its infancy. The property holds a very special place in the designer's heart.
BOURBON O BAR
As part of the Bourbon Orleans Hotel, the Bourbon O Bar is the freshest bar on Bourbon Street offering lite fare and craft cocktails, plus live jazz music nightly beginning at 8pm.
Midnight Boheme designed a snazzy, jazz and cocktail inspired t-shirt design that was so well liked, the emblem is now seen on the menu, merchandise, signage, and the drumset on stage.
In celebration of its 200th Anniversary, this rack card was designed in 2017 by Midnight Boheme to promote the historic Orleans Ballroom.
Each holiday, the hotel enjoys offering prix fixe menus or buffets to celebrate seasonal feasts such as Easter, Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the very special annual "Brunch with Santa". Midnight Boheme always enjoys creating these colorful and holiday-inspired menus that double as flyers, posters, and promotional collateral.

To inform and intrigue potential guests and group bookings, Midnight Boheme worked diligently with the Bourbon Orleans Hotel sales team to design brochures featuring maps, property stats, guest room features, photos, and local info.
These brochures are useful when the sales team is pitching the hotel and its beautiful ballroom, its many meeting spaces, and the courtyard pool as reasons to book the hotel for a special event, a wedding reception, a conference, or other stay.
Even a tri-fold pocketed brochure was created for guests who check in with special vouchers as an informative and convenient way to carry the vouchers and guest room key cards.
The General Manager and Midnight Boheme have a generous history of working on inventive design projects for the hotel to inspire the guests and associates alike.
Projects such as the GM Council invitations and the watercolor hotel postcards and greeting cards are among many such initiatives.
WEDDINGS AND ELOPEMENTS
The Bourbon Orleans sales team worked with Midnight Boheme over the years to create lavish and romantically-inspired collateral to promote weddings, elopements, receptions, anniversary parties, and engagement soirees at the hotel's numerous spacious areas including the Orleans Ballroom, the St. Ann Cottage and Courtyard, the Pool Courtyard, and in the restaurant Roux on Orleans.
In a hotel with a history steeped in scandal, the Bourbon Orleans is world-renowned for its ghost sightings and haunted history. Midnight Boheme researched and recorded the grisly tales of the property in this fold-out brochure available at the front desk, and also created the "Ghost Sightings" log book for guests to record their spiritual encounters. The book sits at the concierge desk and contains an original poem written by the designer.

In the heart of a city
three hundred years old
The Bourbon Orleans
offers great tales to be told
of show folk and lost children,
soldiers and nuns,
All who still wander
when the night steals the sun.
They appear in the ballroom
and in the lobby downstairs,
they float through the corridors
like wind through your hair.
The spirits are friendly,
no ill-will do they mean,
as they bid you a warm welcome
to the Bourbon Orleans!
SPECIAL EVENT FLYERS
From Ghost Camp to Mardi Gras, the Bourbon Orleans hosts a vast array of special events, celebrations, and overnight revelry. In promotion of these festivities, Midnight Boheme creates a wide range of flyers, rack cards, brochures, posters, and displays that can be seen around the property and sometimes around the city in advertisements.
