As stated by others, the location of the hotel is great. Convenient to the quarter, casino, restaurants and local transportation. From check in to departure the service was excellent. Of particular note to us was the kindness and attentiveness of the lady and gentleman serving the continental breakfast. Our balcony room overlooking the courtyard and pool was very comfortable. Return to the Bienville House??? We certainlly would, but next time maybe in October or November when the weather tones down a bit. A great city to visit.
