Currently, the Bienville House is owned by the Monteleone family and is part of the Historic Hotels of America.

With its spacious rooms and beautifully decorated interior, guests will see and feel the French charm of New Orleans as soon as they step foot into Bienville House.

10.0 Wonderful
Front desk was wonderful - valet staff was wonderful - entire experience was wonderful - First place I’ve stayed in NOLA that I would make a hard effort to rebook. Will be recommending to all who ask - as well as those who don’t.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Rooms were clean and spacious. Bed linens were very nice. The inner courtyard is beautiful, expecially in the morning during breakfast. Next time we'll reserve a room on the courtyard. Our room faced Decatur St, but was quiet at night.
6.2 Okay
Pros:Very nice hotel lots of good things about it including location and cleanliness and most staff
Cons:Very rude and noisy maid staff in the early mornings and no follow up from management at all after I complained
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Perfect location, very nice rooms and beautiful pool area. Staff was incredible and probably the nicest pet friendly hotel I have ever stayed in. Very close to all the fun, Harrah's casino, Cafe du Monde, house of blues, Bourbon St. We walked everywhere had a blast and never even thought about a cab.
Cons:Nothing, the hotel was great and New Orleans is one of my new favorite cities on the planet!
6.5 Okay
Pros:The hotel felt very French, romantic, and quaint. It was in a perfect location and within walking distance to the wedding we were attending that night. The rooms were cozy and the balcony was nice.
Cons:Somehow my reservation was saved under the name "Judith" (not sure if this was a mistake on Kayak's end, or the hotel's), and the staff treated me as if I had done something wrong. My name is not/has never been/isn't even close to Judith, so there's no way I accidentally gave them the wrong name. I entered the hotel to check in with the three friends who were also in the room, and they couldn't find the reservation and I had to ask "ok so what do I do?" and they told me to call whoever I booked the reservation through. The woman at the desk was rude and unhelpful overall, and finally, after we got the whole thing sorted out she noticed that the reservation had been made for two people instead of four (all four of us were standing at the desk) and she proceeded to charge us and additional $50 for the extra people. Of course, I was dishonest about the number of us in the room, but an extra $50 just seemed unnecessary seeing as we only planned to sleep there and not use an abundance towels, or even eat breakfast. The frustrating thing is that my emails from Kayak are addressed to me, with my real name, so I think the mistake was actually on the hotel's end and yet they were extremely unkind and did not apologize for anything. It was just bad business practice, but I suppose with a location as great as this one they'll continue to fill rooms no matter the customer service. Also the price for parking was just insane. I recommend looking for other places to park; a few of my other friends found a nearby lot for $15 overnight parking.
8.2 Very good
Pros:Location was fantastic. Staff was very friendly.
Cons:The air conditioner in one of our rooms was not working properly, even after a maintenance person came to service it.
9.4 Wonderful
Pros:very close to canal street and Bourbon street. Able to walk there. Great location for walking to these site attractions.
Cons:The bed was very sqeaky anytime I moved. To go to bathroom you had to step up and I kept hitting my foot on the upstep to go in. So I kept reminding my mother to take a step up when she entered it so she wouldn't fall.
4.8 Mediocre
Pros:The hotel was old which isn't always a bad thing. Our door to our room fell off the hinges and we literally had to sleep with our door opened and unlocked. :( we called downstairs and no one answered. Very dissatisfied
Cons:Just not comfy and dated. Front desk clerk did not make me happy with how she handled the door situation. She asked me "What do you want me to do?" I don't feel I should ask. I didn't have privacy in a room with females. You think they would bend over backwards to satisfy us. Not the case. Very disappointing.
8.0 Very good
Cons:$40 for one night of parking
3.4 Poor
Pros:Location and over-priced hotel in the Quarter. I was here for my 60th birthday. I chose this hotel because I had been here before and had a great experience. Hotel allowed me to change rooms after the ants were reported twice and after my patience had run out.
Cons:Ant problem in one of three rooms reserved for my 60th birthday. Since I have been here before the system is the following: they give you a really crappy room (interior dungeon room with no windows or a small, crappy and smelly room) you inform the front desk that you are not happy, they respond by saying they cannot do anything until the next day even though the hotel seemed to be fairly empty and it was at check-in time and finally you are allowed to move yourself the following day. The rates are all over the place, they change on a day to day basis. I reserved one of the rooms at full price because I wanted to make sure my birthday accommodations were great and I received a very disappointing, smelly, cramped room with a tiny bathroom. Unhelpful front desk. Overall a sad experience.
