The Bourbon Orleans has the 2 story suites. Its a very nice place to stay.
My family and I are going on a weekend trip to New Orleans and I am confused if Canal street is referring to Bourbon street. Is it the same?
not at all
Canal street is huge street with 3 lanes on each side and the street car in the middle, it has many shops, hotels and stores on both sides.
Bourbon street is a small but famous street because of all of the bars and strip clubs that have made it famous, at night portions of it are closed to vehicular traffic (no cars) and people stroll up and down it all night creating a parade of characters including tourists and locals that has to be seen to be explained. you can carry and drink alcohol while you walk as long as it’s not in a glass container.
I’d avoid the overpriced t shirt shops and strip clubs but you can find some good music and fun if you know where to look
