The hotel is located in a quiet area of the French Quarter, not far from the House of Blues and close to Jackson Square. We had a very cozy elegant room. The bed was big and comfortable and the room decorated in what I'd describe as French-New Orleans style. It was really classy and romantic and we felt very well... More

My whole experience at the Bienville House Hotel was wonderful. The staff was very professional, kind, and helpful. The room was beautiful with a balcony that faced Decatur St. It was also very clean and comfortable. The location was perfect as we enjoyed a concert at the House of Blues which is one block away. I will definatly stay there... More

Here is the letter I wrote the general manager after I received an email thanking me for my stay and asking for my comments. Our stay was from March 12-15, 2009. So far I have not received a response. (I have removed the names of the staff referenced). Thank you for asking about my stay at the Bienville House. I... More

I stayed here the weekend of the St. Patrick's Day Parades. Bottom line is that a hotel should be about customer service. This place is absolutely not. The room we stayed in was nice and comfortable and close to the quarter. I, however, had an awful and unforgettable experience with the night clerk that Friday evening. After waiting for her... More

A friend and I stayed here for 5 days last summer. We loved it !! It's in a GREAT location - close to Jackson Square, the Mississppi, and only 6 blocks from Bourbon Street. Staff was great. Speaking Spanish would have come in handy but that's minor. Despite getting a TINY room (about the size of my bathroom!) with a... More

Nice front desk people. Nice room. Three issues - 1. I booked a room with a king bed, and did not get it. 2. Elevator got stuck on a floor for a while, and did not enjoy climbing 4 flights of stairs (after a hurricane). 3. Room safe did not work.

Got a great deal for the Bienville via TravelZoo. When we arrived we were given a lovely deluxe room that had a terrace outside (shared with a couple of other rooms) but with our own table and chairs. The hotel is like stepping back in time with alot of 'NOLA charm. The staff were very pleasant and the breakfast was... More

Stayed with my husband for a convention. Good friends also booked a room. Although the beds were nicely decorated (NO BUGS) and the place is sweet, and in a good location,there were several problems with service. First ol all, they knew a huge convention was coming and there was a paltry continental breakfast. By 9am, there was nothing left!! Day... More

I stayed at the Bienville while there on a yoga/spa/get-a-way weekend. I loved the location, it was close to many of the things I wanted to do and see. The room was clean and attractively decorated. I do have one complaint, however, and that was there was no window in the room and after awhile I began to feel claustrophobic.... More
