From its humble beginnings as a grain warehouse, the building that is now the Bienville House French Quarter hotel has gone through many transformations to become the exceptional boutique New Orleans hotel it is today.

Originally occupied by Planters Rice Mills, the space became home to Thompson’s Rice Mill and Southern Syrup Manufacturing. By 1835, the building had been completely transformed and the North American Hotel opened. The New Orleans hotel was advertised as a “delightful summer residence for Ladies and Gentlemen.”

However, by 1837, the hotel’s owners had parted company, and the building was split into a small French Quarter hotel for boarders and a Fire House. Eventually the building would become the Royal Bienville, 20 luxury apartments that marked the revival of Decatur Street. By the early 1970’s the building was once again a New Orleans hotel that appealed to people driving to or through the city. After surviving a fire that destroyed a warehouse across the street, the 82 room “motor hotel” was purchased by the Monteleone family in 1972. The Bienville House hotel is still family-owned and operated by the Monteleone family.

Our room blocks were coordinated through Bienville House, due to an amazing price and proximity to our wedding venue (House of Blues). From setting up individual reservations, checking on the progress of our room blocks, to check-in the process was very easy for me (the bride). All of our guests were impressed with the rooms, location, and amenities. The rooms were gorgeous, with four-poster beds and very nice linens. I look forward to staying with the Bienville House again, perhaps on an anniversary vacation.
