My husband and I haven't been on a vacation in a year and half and we really needed to get away just for a night. We wanted to take our 2 year old to New Orleans for her birthday to visit the aquarium and just experience the awesome culture and food. I booked a room with the Bienville House Hotel... More

This hotel is lovely right in the heart of the city. Its interior is set back in the olden days and this is what makes it the nicest place to stay. Small outside swimming pool with chairs and loungers. We sat outside having our breakfast and it was so lovely and peaceful even though we were on a main road.... More

Lovely quiet hotel to stay in New Orleans. On the outskirts of the French Quarter with a short stroll to shopping and wonderful restaurants. The staff is friendly and helpful and willing to help to make your stay perfect. I highly recommend!!

My husband and I went to New Orleans on a whim. It's my favorite place on Earth, but he had never been. So Bienville House was the perfect hotel for showing him the town and all the attractions. There was great food and music around every corner. The staff at Bienville was amazing and we can't wait to come back.... More

This is one of many stays at the Bienvielle House. We will stay at this charming boutique hotel again. The hotel is convenient to the French quarter and the Garden district as well as all public transportation and the larger convention hotels.

A great location and a very attentive staff. Hotel was clean and has a lot of charm. Additional plus was the availability of continental breakfast. Hotel staff helped with directions to locations on our itinerary also.

The hotel is ideally situated for the main tourist sites in New Orleans, mainly the French Quater, steamboats and aquarium without to much noise from outside. Our room was at the front of the hotel overlooking the fire station but we only heard an engine leaving once. The room was comfortable and clean. The bed was comfy but very high... More

Bienville House is a beautiful, historic building, imbued with all the atmosphere of the French Quarter. It is comfortable and its employees are most cordial. It is within walking distance of just about everything one might want to experience.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
