We couldn't have asked for a warmer or friendlier stay at Bienville House. It is perfectly located- within walking distance of Downtown, the French Quarter, the Mississippi & a host of wonderful restaurants. If your budget can stretch to a balcony room overlooking the courtyard swimming pool, snap one up. I would return in a heartbeat.

My mom had been wanting to visit New Orleans for years, and myself being a seasoned veteran, I decided to surprise her with 3 days in to the Crescent City. I found an amazing deal for Bienville House on Expedia and jumped on it. Location wise, it's really centralized in the French Quarter on Decatur St., being within an easy... More

Love this hotel!! The staff is very friendly and helpful and the location couldn't be better. We reserved a king room and it was beautiful. This was the second time we stayed at the Bienville House, and we will be back.

If you want to stay in a quaint hotel in the heart of the French Quarter this place should be on your list. Very authentic New Orleans. Comfortable bed. Our balcony room overlooked Decatur Street.

This was my 2nd time back w/ my husband. This time we brought along another couple with us. We had an amazing time. We purposely went back to Bienville House because of its location. The staff is part of the charm. I love the hotel's atmosphere.

Great location. Comfortable bed. Very clean. Great service. Friendly, attentive service. Request a room with a quiet location! Bring your own pillow, there's are simply too small. Restaurant not to our liking - too much like a tiki bar.

With wanting to stay in the French Quarter, Bienville House would have been an obvious choice just because of the great location. Just blocks in any direction from the essential places to see in the Quarter (Jackson Square, French market, Bourbon Street and on and on and on...) it is already a winner. Add to that a great staff, clean... More

It is in a quiet part of the French Quarter. The staff is very attentive and helpful. The rooms are large and accommodating with just the right NOLA feel to them. This hotel is close to several tourist attractions and close to tour pickup locations.

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.
