My husband and I, along with several friends went to New Orleans a few days before our cruise was to leave in order to experience the town. This was our first time visiting NOLA and we did not know what to expect, since we had heard several conflicting recommendations. I am very happy to say that this is now one of our favorite places to visit and we will return. Bienville House is a great place to stay. The location is perfect, off Bourbon but not too far to walk. The rooms are very nice and clean. The staff was very nice and always spoke to us whenever we saw them. We are already planning our next visit to NOLA and we will definitely stay at the Bienville House.
