My husband and I were celebrating my 50th birthday and our 25th Anniversary. When we arrived the staff greeted us with the biggest smiles. We were brought to the most beautiful room with a large 4 poster bed. Perfect for us since we are tall people. There was a knock at our door and we were serviced a bottle of...

So far it has been a great experience! Bathroom could use some updating. They don't say it on website, but you will need to pay a daily valet charge if you bring a vehicle. I used Uber so it wasn't an issue.

My husband and I stayed here two nights with our 6 year-old daughter. The location is pretty perfect walking distance to anywhere in the French Quarter. We even walked to the aquarium one day. The hotel is far enough away from the party areas to be quiet at night, but still close enough to all the action if that's where...

Family of 15 shared 5 rooms at Bienville House near the French Quarter. Best value for your price, with free WiFi and breakfast. Location is superb for walking around the sites you want to see around the French Quarter. Front desk staff, especially, Beverly, was gracious when checking us into the hotel. Recommend this hotel without any hesitation!

Our family of 3 spent 4 days at Bienville House over Thanksgiving. The staff was welcoming and helpful. Our room was small but we didn't spend much time there other than to sleep. Breakfast was nominal. Hotel is in a great location, near the edge of the French Quarter, close to shopping. We recommend it!

We chose the Bienville House primarily because of its location relative to the activities we had planned for this trip. Worked out perfectly. Be aware you are about a block from a working rail line, so there are occasional train whistles at night. The property is not intended to be a 5-star hotel, but is well maintained and has some...

What a great place to stay. Easy walking distance to the river and French Quarter. The staff is second to none!! Extremely friendly and helpful. We stayed in a King Superior room with balcony overlooking the pool. I will definitely stay here again when in New Orleans.

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.
