Bienville House

New Orleans, Louisiana

The hotel

Enveloping you in the French Quarter’s intoxicating buzz and beauty, Bienville House is a bona fide piece of New Orleans history – reinvented for the 21st century in 2018. Once a rice mill, it first welcomed travellers in 1835 – but it’s not just its back story that reveals its past. Outside it’s trimmed with those classic wrought iron balconies, some of which frame the heated outdoor pool and pretty flagstone courtyard. And step inside and you’ll feel like you’re entering an old French manor house, with its carefully curated furniture and artwork adding to the sense of history. Your deluxe guestroom and the hotel’s restaurant are bang-up-to-date though, with Beachbum Berry’s Latitude 29 presenting modern Polynesian dishes in a fun Tiki setting – with cocktails that live up to the city’s reputation as the mixology capital of the world.

Gorgeous hotel with a great location and friendly staff. Only downside is the proximity to the railway line and it is a bit noisy at night when then the train driver exercises his right to blow his horn.

Very nice hotel in the French Quarter. Our room was spacious with high ceilings, and french doors opening to our private deck overlooking the courtyard. Enjoyed our beignet and coffee on our little deck in the morning. Cafe DuMond only a few blocks away. This hotel has a certain southern charm - like a time gone by. Would love to come back again… Read more

Would love to come back again sometime. Great location in a quieter part of the French Quarter. Plenty of options of things to do a block or two away. Staff was great. Breakfast in the courtyard was nice. Read less

Things you may want to know: There is a keurig and a fridge in the room You can take a taxi, Uber or left from the airport to the hotel. We took Uber and it cost approximately $38 About a 10 minute walk straight down to Victoria square and Cafe du monde If you get there early they can hold your bags safely There is a concierge if you want tour ideas There is a small outdoor pool and courtyard, very cute. We saw people swimming in early March Read less
