Bienville House Hotel Review

Located near the Mississippi River, the Bienville's guest rooms are furnished with antiques, and attractions in the Quarter and the CBD are nearby. The hotel occupies a sliver of land between Decatur and N. Peters streets; if you stay in a room on the top floor, you'll have access to a gorgeous sundeck. Rooms with balconies overlook the courtyard's saltwater pool. In-house Restaurant Iris is one of the best-kept secrets in the Quarter.

    Gun-toting staff made me worried for my safety!

    I stayed in the Bienville House Hotel just before JazzFest started. The first morning I was there a staff member walked into my room at 7am without even knocking. After saying "I didn't know anyone was in this room", she sent another staff member and a gun-toting security guard to my room to question me. Even after I showed them my proof that it I had paid for the room they followed me as I left the hotel for the day to volunteer at Habitat For Humanity. I became concerned my personal safety and found a new hotel. I stay in hotels about 50 nights a year and I've never had such a horrible experience with stadd

    Great Location and Value

    We stayed for 5 nights last fall. The room was large, staff pleasant, and location would be hard to beat. Mid-week rates are competitive with anyone. Planning to return this fall.
