Bienville is a treasure mainly due to the people who work here. Miss Cynthia is outstanding. We just spent the week here and can't say enough good things about this location. The only thing keeping thus from a five star rating is the elevator, which is small, and a pool that was icy cold. Overall with a heat index of... More

A beautiful historic hotel with friendly staff and excellent service. The rooms are very comfortable. I could have slept for weeks in that bed! It is close to everything. We walked pretty much every where. I highly recommend.

This hotel was very nice and definitely cheaper than most hotels in NOLA on a Saturday night. It was the only one that I found that offered Saturday only reservations. All other hotels that I checked required Friday & Saturday night stay. The only negative experience was the Valet Parking. I waited in line in the street for 20 minutes... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Bienville House. Good location, clean rooms, stayed in the double private balcony. Staff was helpful and nice. We will definitely come back. Thomas was very good with our luggage we had two dogs and two kennels.

Beautiful old hotel at the edge of the French Quarter, on Decatur. We have stayed here a few times for a romantic getaway. We actually got married here & always enjoy the beauty of the courtyard & the nostalgia it brings.

In all fairness, the hotel was nice. Check in and out was easy and the front desk was very nice. We really enjoyed the restaurant there too......Latitude 29, fun drinks and appetizers reminiscent of Bali Hai from New Orleans own Pontchartrain Beach. Their staff was awesome. The rooms were nice enough. Beds were a little too soft for me but... More

LOVE this hotel! It is walking distance to everything. Everyone is super friendly and happy to help any way they can. Some rooms are 'small and have NO windows,. SO if your not a fan of no windows in your room ask for "Sun Deck Room" . Only place we stay in New Orleans!!
