Great room. In the heart of the Quarter within walking distance of restaurants, attractions, but surprisingly quiet. Nice patio area right outside our door. Nice pool area. Continental breakfast was good and was kept well stocked. Friendly, helpful staff. Minor issue, we did not get any washcloths the second night and when we asked for them, they didn't have any....

We chose this small hotel because it is well situated for the attractions of NOLA without being in the thick of it. The room was what you would expect from an old hotel, very clean with plenty of space to move around. Breakfast was a semi do it your self from a limited buffet bar. Reception staff and concierge where... More

We had a multi-generational mini-vacation in New Orleans and this hotel worked perfect. From the helpful staff to the great location, we couldn't have asked for a better place. The garden is a beautiful place to sit with morning coffee or afternoon drinks. The staff were kind and helpful with all of our requests and went out of their way... More

I always prefer to choose a boutique hotel over one of the corporate chains where every rooms looks the same from city to city. This lovely hotel didn't disappoint. It's a great location very near to Bourbon Street, the French Quarter and the convention center. The staff was very helpful at every occasion. I will definitely come back.

The Bienville House is just inside the French Quarter, is clean and quiet. Built in the early 1800's, it was a rice mill, then a hotel, then apartments and served a variety of functions. Its also near the Mississippi River and two different street car lines which makes it an ideal location. Its just over a mile to the convention... More

Bienville played a big part in our very enjoyable first trip to New Orleans. It's in a great location on the edge of the French Quarter, close to so many things. If you want Bourbon street it's only a few blocks away or a short walk to the tramlines to explore this great city. Our room was a good size... More

This boutique hotel is absolutely beautiful, elegant and located in the very best location convenient to all of the French Quarter. The staff is wonderful; accomadating, very... More

I spent three nights at the Bienville House, it was quiet, conveniently located and the price was right. The staff was very friendly and helpful. My room was spacious and comfortable. There is a beautiful pool area. The shower could use an update but everything else was fine.

My wife and I stayed at the Beinville House due to the location convenience to the House of Blues and a concert that we were attending. The staff were exceptional and the facilities were on par for great hotels. It was much more quaint then a larger "Chain Hotel". This hotel will be our permanent fixture when we sleep in... More
