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 and reopening in spring 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.

Perfect location for first timers to New Orleans but I would stay again. In the French Quarter but not too close to the craziness. Beautiful rooms and bathrooms. Beds and pillows a dream. Helpful and pleasant staff. Nice that breakfast is included— saves time and money.

4 nights of quiet comfort at this lovely hotel. Loved the breakfast before heading out each to many nearby attractions. It was the luxurious and quiet stay so close to all the action. The rooms are well maintained and amenities are above standard for
