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.

The Bienville House was, for us, a perfect location - at the edge of the French Quarter, it's a quiet location, but easy walking to great restaurants, the aquarium, and to the St Charles streetcar. Our room was charming, quiet, clean, and comfortable. Free breakfast (with eggs & sausage) is always a plus. The salt-water pool looked lovely and… Read more

Staff were friendly and helpful. We would absolutely stay here again. Read less
