We recently spent 2 nights at this hotel and found it to be a decent place to stay. I thought our room was a bit small-ish and awkward... there were 2 chairs by the window that were perfectly useless because the bed was only about 4 inches from them. The courtyard is small but very pretty - a nice place... More

Charming hotel in perfect location. We wanted to stay in the French Quarter but not in the heart of all the noise. This was perfect! Within walking distance of everything but not noisy. Staff was helpful and very pleasant. Rooms were clean and beautiful. Would recommend!

Beautiful hotel, great staff and perfect location! We stayed in a double balcony room with an incredible view of the landscaped courtyard and pool. Staff is 5star! For a historic hotel; this exceeded my expectations. Perfect boutique hotel that provides an oasis experience. Truly not a single negative.

We just got back from a trip to New Orleans for our anniversary. Bienville House is a beautiful, quaint hotel with comfortable, well decorated rooms. We had a cute king room with a balcony overlooking the salt water pool and courtyard that was so pretty and peaceful. The location is perfect for exploring the city while having a 'retreat' to...

I cannot say enough great things about this hotel. From the minute we checked in the staff was wonderful, friendly, attentive, helpful. Breakfast in the morning is definately a nice touch with many options for a continental breakfast. Pool/courtyard is smaller than you would think by looking at the photos but has a nice homey feel and we enjoyed overlooking... More

What you would picture a French Quarter hotel to be. Great location near most of my favorite places in the Quarter. Nice lobby, rooms were a good size, and the staff was friendly and helpful. Very reasonable rates and a nice little courtyard.
