We found Bienville House to be lovely and in a perfect location--far enough away from the drunken chaos of Bourbon St. to be relatively quiet, but close enough to walk to the more desireable attractions, such as restaurants, Jackson Square, the French Market, the Natchez Steamboat, and loads of shops. I even walked to Frenchmen St., though that was a... More

We were in NOLA for a wedding and the Bienville was one of our choices. The hotel is beautiful and we enjoyed our balcony overlooking the courtyard and pool. It was in walking distance to the French Quarter and close to restaurants, shops and sightseeing. I would definitely stay here again!!!!

Wonderful historic hotel in the French Quarter. Easy walking distance to many sights and restaurants. The staff was helpful and the valet was very convenient. We had a street view room with a balcony.

We talked about going to NOLA and a package deal came up on USAir Vacations for airfare and the Bienville House. Looking at reviews we booked the package. Loved this hotel - old and quaint. Rooms very clean and roomy. We got a room with a Decatur Street balcony. We enjoyed sitting out there for morning coffees and evening cocktails.... More

Initially we got a room which had a balcony and view of the inner courtyard. After settling in for about 10 minutes we received a call to say we were in the wrong room and had to move! We were re-directed to the room next door, which although was also a lovely spacious room, it didn't have a balcony and... More

This hotel is conveniently located in the French Quarter and is nicely decorated. Rooms are adequate. Our issue is mostly with housekeeping: no clean towels and wash cloths unless asked for repeatedly. We stayed for four nights/five days and had our beds made only once, even though we were out of the room by 7:30 each morning. Housekeeping was seen... More

I came to check out NOLA for the 1st time and wanted to stay somewhere that had that old southern historic feel to it. I picked the right place. Located on Decatur Street which was 2 or 3 blocks from Bourbon Street, this hotel was within walking distance to most of the infamous spots. It's also in the French Quarter... More

I got a fabulous deal on Otels.com for 3 nights at this older hotel. Great location on Decatur street, walked everywhere I wanted to go. They are across the street from the fire station. One night one of the firemen played his bagpipes. The song Saints go Marching was magical. Staff were most gracious. Rooms were divine. Only reason this... More

The Bienville house is located on Decatur Street, in the heart of the French Quarter. The interior is lovely and elaborate, as would be expected in a house of the late 1800s. But the amenities are modern all the way. The indoor/outdoor feel of the hotel reminded me of hotels in the Caribbean Islands, with lots of lush greenery and... More

The hotel staff was very friendly. The rooms were large and spacious. Rather than get 2 rooms for three adults we got just one. Unfortunately there were only 2 double beds, instead of queens. They offered a free continental breakfast. For us, the downside were the train whistles at 3:45 am and 6:00am.; there was no fitness area; the pool... More
