                      • A lovely bridge and a few blocks from Jackson Square. The pool area was gorgeous and the hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. Bienville house was great, the service was excellent and the room was very clean, quiet and comfortable.

                        The French quarter is a very noisy place and water pressure low. Elevator is awful and breakfast could have been better.

                      • The location was great too, absolutely loved the ambiance in the hotel & the pool area was to die for and the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Our room was large and the one elevator was tiny, slow, and very, very hot. Continental breakfast was nice.

                        The French quarter is a noisy place and the front desk help has attitude and really is no help at all. The internet is very poor, a microwave would have been more useful than someone pouring my coffee.

                      • The location is really excellent and good standard hotel close to all the action. The staff at the bienville house are fantastic and there’s free wireless Internet, is kind of nice.

                        The restaurant on site was closed, there was no room service, and the courtyard pool was closed, the gentleman at the front desk was rather rude. The pillows were uncomfortable and the continental breakfast was mediocre.

                      • Comfy and great location, just few blocks away from the riverfront and a streetcar stop. The place was convenient and our stay at the Bienville House was wonderful. Local was top notch next door to the best club in town, price was very competitive and the front desk staff were friendly.

                        Limited view from the room and our train was late. The hotel was generally old and small, the maid service was only adequate, the bed was too soft. Elevator was sooooooo slow and frustrating, pillows were very thin, the continental breakfast was not good.

                        Expensive to phone from your hotel room and desk staff were incapable of dividing the bill properly for 2 unrelated business travelers.

                        You should never stay in a chain hotel in New Orleans.

                        The rooms facing the street can be very noisy.

                      • Beautiful room great view and nice stay. Old europe style, very helpful staff and friendly concierge. The bed was very comfortable, breakfast was excellent and the pool was a real plus.

                        The good location of the hotel comes w/ alot of noise thru out the night.

                      • The location was ideal and the hotel was clean. Some staff were good, rooms had a warm and althought the coffee was way too weak. Waitress was great and helpful, pool was absolutely wonderful.

                        Poor customer service, continental breakfast was not at all impressive.

                      • The location is great, no surprises and a typical upscale French Quarter hotel, the rooms are spaciaous and the beds are incredibly comfortable.

                        Front desk staff were distracted.

                        Crowded lobby, one clerk, front desk service slow, the restaurant was closed.

                        Water backed up in bath tub, poor breakfast.
