The Bienville House Hotel is a quintessential New Orleans hotel nestled in the French Quarter and mere moments from the Mississippi River. It promises that Southern hospitality you’ve heard so much about.

The graceful building that houses the Bienville House Hotel is a slice of New Orleans history. It’s been reimagined several times since its 1835 conception as a manufacturing plant, then firehouse. Today, its humble beginnings are barely perceptible amid its elegance. The sage green exterior, adorned with flower-filled wrought-iron balconies, hint at the sophistication that lies within. The 80 guestrooms are traditionally appointed. Expect carved mahogany beds, chandelier lighting and a hint of chintz. But in the Bienville’s case, its commitment to classic styling only adds to its appeal and charm. Some rooms overlook the small saltwater pool in the courtyard, dotted with guests enjoying a retreat from the hustle-bustle of New Orleans. Latitude 29, the hotel’s tiki-inspired restaurant, is well worth a visit. But the hotel’s helpful concierge will happily direct you to other excellent eateries if you’re keen to sample New Orleans staples of gumbo, jambalaya and beyond.
