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.

This hotel is so lovely! the rooms were spacious and comfortable, the staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was ok, although it was a shame there was only a choice of plastic plates. the breakfast itself should have been wider in choice for such a lovely hotel.

Great boutique hotel. Very friendly staff. Comfortable bed and very clean bathroom. Only complaint would be bedroom carpet not as clean as I would expect in my own home. Breakfast adequate and good selection for a quick “bite” to get your day going.

The location was great outdoor area and pool was small but very quaint...I cannot say enough about the staff especially Darren he was so helpful kind and every recommendation spot on. Only negative is the restaurant latitude attached to hotel not sure it is affiliated but the staff there was rude and when we asked for a drink it was a bother. If I go back to Nola I would definitely stay at the Bienville house! Read less

We stayed in the king deluxe room with a balcony and were blown away by the beautiful, spacious room and high ceilings and the gorgeous remodeled bathroom. The shower was amazing and bed was so comfortable. The hotel is perfectly located for easy walking distance to most of the French Quarter, but is nestled in a quieter and safe-feeling spot. The balcony was beautiful and we had coffee there every morning overlooking the street. The staff was beyond friendly (especially Cynthia!) and made us feel welcome and taken care of. Can’t recommend this spot enough for a romantic getaway. Clean, beautifully styled, and worth every penny. Read less

We have already decided that this beautiful well appointed hotel will be our home when we travel to New Orleans. Thanks, Beverly for your hospitality. We will see you soon. Read less
